Cherrelle first came to the attention of Tabu Records owner Clarence Avant around 1980. He successfully teamed her up with songwriters / producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and with the album 'Fragile' in 1984, brought her to the fore of the U.S. R&B charts with hits such as 'I Didn't Mean To Turn You On' and 'When You Look In My Eyes. Further R&B hits emerged with duets with Alexander O'Neal on 'Saturday Love' and 'Never Knew Love Like This'. Now digitally remastered, this Best Of brings together the best tracks from Cherrelle's three Tabu releases ('Fragile', 'High Priority' and 'Affair'). Although Cherrelle never quite reached the fame some of her contemporaries managed, her classic song 'I Didn't Mean To Turn You On' has been covered by both Robert Palmer and Mariah Carey and is a must have for any R&B fan. EMI. 2005.
I also wasn't aware that "I Didn't Mean To Turn You On" was Cherrelle's and not Robert Plant's song! No disrespect to Mr. Plant's version (which is a classic in its own right) but I am glad to hear Cherrelle's.
The CD as a whole is a good example of how R & B music used to be. You still have a few examples of that today such as Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, Babyface, Maxwell, Raphael Saadiq, Joss Stone and Chrisette Michele that carry on traditions that guys like The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Manhattans, Tammie Terrell, Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Luther Vandross, The Isley Brothers, Shalamar and (of course) Cherrelle began.
If you were a fan of her's but don't have the money to get her CD's individually or just want to hear her best, then this is a good place to start. Very good CD!
