Rock Solid

Advantages: Beautiful lyrics, smooth vocals
Disadvantages: Not as commercial as her previous releases which meant less people heard it

I could never say that I have ever been a huge Sade fan. I will happily listen to her music if it happens to be on, but I would never deliberately go looking for one of her CD's. That was until she came back from a self imposed break of eight years, and r ...

Lossom

Advantages: Smoother than a triple-blade shave
Disadvantages: No Saxophone from Stuart Matthewman!

Sade does not sing with the greatest voice you've heard. Stand her amongst her band and she makes for a pretty impressive performer. If the mention of Sade has you reciting her earlier hits such as 'Your Love is King' and 'Smooth Operator', then you ...

STOP! IN THE NAME OF THE SUPREMES

Advantages: Every track's a true gem!
Disadvantages: None!

By 1965, Motown artists were registering hits on the charts as regular as clockwork. Following their legendary, landmark hit 'Dancing in The Street' (perceived by some critics as a song to encite riots), Martha & The Vandellas kept on pumping them out wit ...
