Hugely popular throughout the '70s and '80s, Lionel Richie started his career as a founding member of The Commodores. That funk/soul group racked up a slew of crossover hits, including timeless party jams ("Brick House") and ultra-smooth love songs ("Easy"). In the early to mid-'80s Richie was one of the planet's biggest pop stars, right up there with Prince and M.J., unleashing a long run of chart-topping singles and becoming especially well-known for his tearjerker ballads and now-classic videos. This 20-track compilation features a handful of early Commodores favorites, notably "Three Times a Lady" and "Just To Be Close to You," as well as Richie's '80s-era solo standouts like "All Night Long," "Stuck on You," and "All Night Long (All Night)." The playlist ends with lesser-known newer material ("Angel," "Goodbye"), but those songs still showcase his uniquely captivating voice. Overall a great collection from one of this generation's greatest singer/songwriters.
GOTTA LOVE LIONEL RITCHIE
My favorite genre has become country for some strange reason. I grew up listening to mostly R&B living in an urban area. Well I just couldn't wait to Lionel Ritchie's new collection it brings me back to my roots thank U Lionel you have never let me down. I love all the songs but really Goodbye is a real keeper.
Lionel re-releasing this Collection was great but we need you to open up that vault of songs you've written and take them to Nashville because they will appreciate what you do now.
Lionel trained me how to truly romance my future wife toward an endless love
When I was dating my wife of what now is nearly 29 years, Elyse, living with her cousin Barbara in Manhattan on 69th Street (you got that right! LOL) and Second Avenue in the early 80s, we'd work out at The Vertical Club in the shadow of the 59th Street Bridge, then stop at a deli on the way uptown to her place so I could get my regimen of stuffed grape leaves, then snuggle on the couch in the living room, listening to Lionel Richie on the turntable play over and over and over and over. It was truly a romance-Richie courtship that resulted in an endless love.
What more can you say.
The man is simply genius.
