…no doubt where the British singer's heart lies – sleek yet gritty '70s R&B. Though the retro leanings of such updated soul treasures as "You Can't Deny It" and "What Did I Do to You" are obvious, Stansfield's producer keeps things very fresh sounding by embracing a decidedly high-tech and very late-'80s/early-'90s production style. Though essentially a soul diva, Stansfield has a disco masterpiece in the love-and-togetherness anthem "This Is the Right Time."
Complete Collection is a six-disc, U.K.-only set celebrating the breadth and depth of Lisa Stansfield's extensive and impressive career. It includes her five studio albums – Affection; Real Love; So Natural; Lisa Stansfield; and Face Up – as well as an exclusive sixth disc, with recordings from a 1992 Wembley date, club mixes (including a great Massive Attack version of "Live Together"), B-sides, and three songs from Stansfield's Blue Zone days. Not enough? Each studio album is augmented with at least two bonus tracks. Complete Collection is definitely the most comprehensive Lisa Stansfield retrospective; it borders on overkill. But since it's only available in the U.K. – and is also quite pricey – the single-disc Biography is perfectly acceptable for the casual Stansfield fan.

Lisa Stansfield is an English singer, songwriter and actress. This box is a perfect way to collect the "first" era of Lisa's discography at Arista! All albums are clearly remasters as 2 Cd sets with remixes and -some- rare tracks… It ends with a 3Cds remixes compilation of remixes that makes it nearly awesome! The only things missing here are some single edits (Maybe Edsel thinks of it for a new compilation?), a bunch of remixes, and some collaboration tracks that did not belongs to Arista… and obviously the "very first" Lisa's recording when she was so young…
