Awesome CD!

on 4/22/2012

This CD is great. The sound quality is excellent, and the tracks speak for themselves. My 5 year old daughter likes to dance to "Dancin' on the Ceiling" and "Ballerina Girl" and always provides entertainment for my wife and I. In short - "Lionel Richie - works every time!" Read More

Although Lionel Richie was AWOL for most of the '90s, he's still a pop culture force to be reckoned with, and THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION ably supports this assertion. Between his work as a frontman for The Commodores, songwriter for other artists, and as a solo act, Richie became the only songwriter to score nine chart-toppers in nine consecutive years. Aside from Kenny Rogers' "Lady" and USA For Africa's "We Are The World," (co-written with Michael Jackson), all the other #1's are here: "Endless Love" (with Diana Ross), "Truly," "Hello," "All Night Long (All Night)," "Say You, Say Me," "Still" and "Three Times A Lady." That's not even counting the man's other Top 10 hits including further Commodores manna like "Easy" (later a hit remake for Faith No More). Throw in solo sides like the infectious "Dancing On the Ceiling" and the urgent "Running With The Night" and its easy to hear how Richie nonchalantly dominating the charts throughout the '80s. He brings things up-to-date with two new songs: the slow rolling Enrique Iglesias duet "To Love a Woman" and the piano ballad "Goodbye."
Artist Overview
First as the leader of the Commodores and then as a worldwide solo superstar in the '80s, Lionel Richie pioneered a highly accessible mix of soul and soft pop that influenced everyone from Luther Vandross to Mariah Carey. An excellent singer and songwriter, Richie started as a hard core funk musician but later became a master of the romantic contemporary R&B ballad, a style with which his name has become synonymous.
