Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel includes: Anita Baker (vocals); Greg Phillingaines (keyboards); Paulinho Da Costa (percussion).
Muze PNote From the opening piano chords of `Sweet Love', you know there is a good song coming. Ex-Chapter 8 vocalist Baker has an effortless delivery that swoops and dips like a swallow. `Sweet Love' is just one of those soul songs that people who say they don't like soul music like. The choice of material is superb, and heart-tugging songs such as David Lasley's `You Bring Me Joy' or Ken Hirsch and Marti Sharron's `No One In The World' are only beaten by Baker's voice. The slower material is stronger and only `Watch Your Step' and `Same Ole Love' fail to hit the spot, simply because of the mood the other tracks set.

Producer: Anita Baker

Artist Overview

Baker, who has been hailed as "the female Luther Vandross," used her gospel and jazz influences to bring a grown-up sophistication and sensuality to soul ballads. Her 1986 smash, RAPTURE, propelled her to stardom with a string of hit singles that blended slick production, R&B roots, and heartfelt emotion.
