This meaty box set is the last word on Luther Vandross. Across 56 songs on four CDs, LOVE, LUTHER spans the seminal R&B artist's entire career, from his earliest hits to his final and most successful album, DANCE WITH MY FATHER, released posthumously. All of Vandross's most essential hits are here, including "Here and Now," "The Power of Love/Love Power," "Endless Love" (with Mariah Carey), and "Dance with My Father," but it's the comprehensive sweep of the set that impresses. Vandross excelled not only as a passionate, skillful singer, but as a writer, arranger, and producer as well. LOVE, LUTHER showcases his mighty talent, and beautifully sums up the work of one of R&B's true giants.
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (p.122) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The combination of Vandross's ulta-smooth vocals with sleek production values clearly shows why he set an unassailable benchmark for romantic crossover soul in the 1980s."
Blender (Magazine) (p.157) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "A soul traditionalist before it became a movement, he tapped into both fathoms -- deep pain and stratospheric joy, shooting out finessed vocal fireworks to articulate the nuances of love's ecstasies and scars."
