Another addition to the Manhattans' bulging cache of mellow sounds. Gerald Alston, Winnie Lovett, Ernest Bivens and Kenny Kelly made a career of recording romance, heartache and make-out tunes. The popular "We Never Danced to a Love Song" fits in well with their other ballads, as does the majestic "It Just Can't Stay this Way" and "Let's Start All Over Again." They hit the charts with the somewhat contrived "I Kinda Miss You," and the title track, the eloquent "It Feels So Good to Be Loved So Bad" is classic - the harmony is tight and they add a little doo wop for good measure.

Winelight is a smooth, well produced groove, that flows together nicely. It is an album good for waking up to on a Sunday morning, or playing while enjoying a bottle of wine late Saturday night. The songs feature enough tempo changes to keep things interesting, and Grover extends several of his solos, often playing beyond the context of the song. Ralph MacDonald’s percussion is particularly effective throughout the album.

Eddie Henderson's lovely flugelhorn colors the opening track, "E Preciso Perdoar (One Must Forgive)," setting the mood for a very mellow set. Washington, accompanied by six pieces, plays the standards straighter than Johnny Mathis sings them; everything is ratcheted down '40s-ish/'50s-ish cozy nightclub style.

Like Ike & Tina Turner, the Ikettes had a pretty confusing recording career, releasing numerous discs for several labels and enduring several lineup changes. They did, however, settle at Modern for a while in the mid-'60s, releasing six singles and one LP for the company. This 27-track compilation includes all of that material, as well as some solo recordings by Ikettes Venetta Fields and Flora Williams (aka Delores Johnson), adding quite a few outtakes and alternate takes not issued in the '60s. It's not, it should be a clarified, a greatest-hits compilation; it doesn't include anything not recorded for Modern, which means it doesn't have their biggest hit, 1962's Top 20 single "I'm Blue (The Gong-Gong Song)" (released on Atco), though it does have their only other Top 40 pop entry, 1965's "Peaches 'n' Cream."

King ("Caught A Touch Of Your Love") and Jean Carne (on two songs). Highlights include "Strawberry Moon," "The Look Of Love," "Maddie's Blues" and "Summer Nights."

The album also featured Grover Washington Jr's signature sound that transcended various musical genres. His phrasing and harmonic sound has been an influence that is still prevalent today. Grover Washington Jr's music elevates the spirit with cool melodies and rhythms that shine with each composition.

Spanning three decades, this collection gathers material from his career with Motown, Elektra, and Columbia Records. It paints a broad yet clear picture of a gifted musician. His most successful recording of course was his collaboration with Bill Withers, "Just The Two Of Us" which is here in its long version. Other guest appearances include Grady Tate, Patti Labelle, Bill Cosby (no, he doesn't sing), Phyllis Hyman and Lalah Hathaway. In addition to his own compositions, he does his own interpretation of "Mercy Mercy Me"(Marvin Gaye), "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life"(Stevie Wonder) and "Jamming"(Bob Marley). The last two tracks were released posthumously. The liner notes give a good backstory of his rise to stardom.
