A stone classic from AliciaMyers – one of her classic sets recorded during the MCA years of the mighty One Way empire! By this point in the 80s, Myers was just about the only part of Al Hudson's One Way collective that was still running strong – and this album of smooth modern soul tracks shows that she still had plenty of steam – stepping out strongly as a lead act on her own, with a vibe that was equally great on mellow tracks and upbeat groovers! The record was produced by Kevin McCord, who also wrote a number of nice tracks – and Al Hudson checks in on writing credits on a few numbers, too. Titles include the sweetly smooth "Don't Do Me This Way", which has a nice jazzy tip – plus "Say That", "You Get The Best From Me", "Just Can't Stay Away", and "Appreciation". LP, Vinyl record album
One of the nicest solo records by AliciaMyers – formerly a vocalist with Al Hudson and The Soul Partners, but sounding even better here on her own. The record's got a strong smooth midtempo groove – with the beat toned down a bit from earlier days, in a style that works perfectly for Alicia's voice. A perfect bit of soul for that warm Sunday afternoon in the fall – king of similar to Chaka Khan's great solo work on Warner from the same time. Titles include "When Love Starts To Go", "I'm So Lonely", "Love Me Or Leave Me Alone", and "Do Your Kind Of Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Groove-happy soul – a 14 track collection that brings together some of the best dancefloor numbers from Al Hudson's group One Way, plus a few solo tunes by one of its best singers, AliciaMyers! Hudson had a unique style that wasn't really disco, wasn't really funk – but took elements of both to craft a modern soul style that worked very well on the dancefloor, and which still holds up in many scenes today. The package includes One Way hits "Cutie Pie", "Lady You Are", "Pop It (single version)", "Push (single version)", "Mr Groove", "Something In The Past", "You Better Quit", and "You Can Do It" – plus AliciaMyers tunes "You Get The Best From Me", "I Want To Thank You", "Appreciation", and "If You Play Your Cards Right".
