Easily the greatest collection of work we've ever seen by Loleatta Holloway – and a massive 2CD dip into her legendary years at Salsoul, and one that gives
equal space to her club hits and mellower soul tracks! The club side of Loleatta's work is very well known – thanks to some breakout singles over the years, and enduring club fame from her top-shelf work for Salsoul. The best of these are collected on CD 1 of the set – which offers up 16 numbers itself, including some rare mixes and out of print LP versions! Yet it's mellow soul side of Loleatta's career that's never as widely represented, and it thankfully gets its full due here on CD 2 – a 17 track exploration of the great ballads, tearjerkers, and deeper soul numbers that Loleatta also recorded at the same time as her club hits. Holloway first began recording in a more traditional southern soul mode – and although the disco years had her stretching out with faster tempos, she also still cut plenty of great tunes in this older mode – the best of which are heard on this set! Dance tunes include "Ripped Off", "Hit & Run (7" version)", "Two Sides To Every Story", "Good Good Feeling", "Love Sensation", "Mama Don't Papa Won't", "Seconds (Shep Pettibone 12" mix edit)", "Dreamin (7" mix)", And "Runaway". Love tunes include "There'll Come A Time", "We're Getting Stronger", "Only You", "What Now", "My Way", "Long Hard Climb To Love", "Worn Out Broken Heart", "I'm In Love", and "Sweet Mother Of Mine". 33 tracks in all – plus a great booklet too!
