Real Love

Review Affection
Lisa Stansfield, Deluxe

Review Arriving as it did in 1990, before nostalgia for '70s dance music turned from irony to genuine appreciation, Lisa Stansfield's Affection was ahead of its time. Featuring up-to-date clubland rhythms percolating under sweeping string arrangements a la Barry White and classic Philly soul, Stansfield's music struck the perfect balance between looking forward and looking back. "All Around the World" was justifiably the album's smash hit, but more than a few of the other tracks--"This Is the Right Time," "Live Together," and "Poison" among them--are its equal. And it's easy to get lost in Stansfield's supple, soulful voice, which leads the way in making Affection a far more memorable affair than the usual dance trifle. --Daniel Durchholz
People Hold on the Remix Anthology-Lisa Stansfield

Review Digitally re-mastered three CD anthology that brings together over thirty sought-after and previously unheard full-length mixes, with a 28-page case bound book featuring photos, memorabilia, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes. The unmistakable voice of Lisa Stansfield has been a constant presence on the dance floor ever since the breakthrough success of 'People Hold On' with Coldcut in 1989. Over the years since, her classic tracks have been remixed by the cream of Clubland from Frankie Knuckles, Masters at Work and David Morales to Ashley Beedle, Massive Attack and the Orb.
Clear Horizon - The Best Of Basia

Review Features photos, memorabilia, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes. REAL LOVE found Lisa fulfilling the promise of her debut with an equally compelling, still more diverse set of songs. With 'All Woman', an instant contemporary classic, the poignant features alongside the seductive 'Time to Make You Mine' and the irresistibly uplifting hits 'Set Your Loving Free' and 'Change'.
The Best of Anita Baker

Review Digitally remastered and expanded three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) deluxe edition of this 1997 album. Features rare tracks and 12' mixes plus videos, live footage and a specially recorded interview with Lisa. The 28- page casebound book features photos, memorabilia, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes. Lisa returned to the top of the charts with her self-titled fourth album. Lisa Stansfield produced such irresistible cuts as 'The Real Thing' and a consummate cover of the Barry White classic 'Never, Never Gonna Give You Up', while infectious bootleg update of 'People Hold On' hit the Top Five and became the first of four consecutive US club #1s.
Help Yourself to My Love: Arista Anthology

Review Digitally re-mastered and expanded edition of this album from the British vocalist. In 2004, ZTT released the Trevor Horn-produced The Moment, Lisa Stansfield's sixth album. It followed the Gold-certified Biography: The Greatest Hits and a stage run, following in the footsteps of Grace Jones and Jerry Hall, in The Vagina Monologues. This expanded edition adds unreleased, alternate takes of the title track and the Prefab Sprout cover "When Love Breaks Down", for which Paddy McAloon wrote an extra verse, alongside instrumental and live tracks. "The Moment is a triumphal title. It is a real moment, because I've taken myself out of my musical box. Regardless of what happens, it been a real amazing time in my life making it..." Lisa Stansfield.
