Hard to believe that a preppie look could ever be associated with a soul singer, but by the time of this 1983, the preppie craze had spread so much that it actually provided Cheryl Lynn
a nice way to update her style! There's nothing preppie about the music, though – and the record's a great batch of cuts that show how much Cheryl
influenced the soul sound of the early 80s, especially at a time when Columbia was putting out so many strong R&B acts – stepping forth with a tight, mature groove that's totally wonderful – definitely a standard-setting sound that so many other female singers tried to match! Includes the cuts "Encore", "Fool A Fool", "Fix It", "Change The Channel", "Preppie", and "Life's Too Short". New CD version has four bonus tracks – including "Encore (dance version)", "Free (special 12" version)", "Preppie (12" version)", and "Preppie (12" club)".
