Wonderful sounds from Teena Marie – the last album she ever recorded before she left us way too soon – and a beautiful set that has us missing her more than ever! The vibe is even tighter than the Congo Square album, but there's also a classic sensibility and depth that takes us back to the earliest Lady T years at Motown – that special quality that always made Teena very different than almost all her contemporaries – a really unique artist with a great ear for balancing the best aspects of her sound! Teena produced and arranged, and the sound is wonderful – warmly seductive, but also funky too – a punch that comes up from the bottom on most numbers, and carries through with really positive energy. There's nothing half baked about the record at all – and the set also features a few contributions from Teena's daughter, Alia Rose. Titles include "Rare Breed", "Definition Of Down", "Maria Bonita", "Beautiful", "The Long Play", "Give Me Your Love", "Wild Horses", "Luv Letter", and "Sweet Tooth".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
