Cissy and Whitney Houston Selected Hits

The legend of Whitney Houston began with this self-titled album. It marked her shift away from the experimental songs she did with the group Material and a move into heavily produced, very slick urban contemporary and adult pop. Although Houston had learned her craft working in New York nightclubs and singing in a Baptist church in Newark, she was steered into radio-friendly ballads that emphasized style over substance. The album did yield an unprecedented string of number one hits, but "Saving All My Love for You" and "How Will I Know" created an impression of an incredibly talented vocalist using only a minimum of her skills. It also contained one of her few legitimate soul workouts in "The Greatest Love of All." [BMG's 2008 Japanese edition featured alternate album art.]
Don't be fooled!
I bought this thinking this was a duet album, I never heard Whitney once. If you like Cissy then this album will be ok but you can easily be fooled.
