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
Real Love

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.

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.
