Album Review

The Gap Band weren't known for their slow, romantic numbers, yet they did quiet storm as well as any other funk band, as The Ballads Collection proves. The disc features 12 songs, both singles and album tracks, all delivered by vocalist Charlie Wilson. Some of the group's finest moments, including "Yearning for Your Love," "Outstanding" and "Going in Circles," are on the collection. It may not draw an accurate portrait of the group's career, but the compilation is ideal for listeners who want the romantic Gap Band.

Customer Reviews

The GAP BAND is choice!

No other music group or band in America, can offer what The Gap Band has brought to music. The Gap Band is not only my favorite band or group, they are the definitive meaning of music in the 21st century. "You Are My High" is like todays John Legend, but sung by the great Charlie Wilson. If you listen to only three of their songs, you will find a favorite. My five stars really represent The Gap Band more than just this album alone.

Nice collection - should have included a few more...

The Gap Band made exceptional ballads/slow jams. And this collection does not get 5 stars from me only because it is missing some good ones, including "Stay With Me" and "Sweet Caroline"; as well as some of their late 80's ballads ("I Need Your Love", "Wednesday Lover", "We Can Make it Alright", and "Let's Talk About Love"). But the 12 songs here are great, and this collection includes the biggest ones.
