Album Review

Pebbles followed her self-titled LP with Always, which went gold and spawned two number one R&B hits, the gritty "Giving You the Benefit" and the fluttering Pebbles/Babyface duet ballad "Love Makes Things Happen." Salt-N-Pepa appear on the pumping smash "Backyard." The lovely ballad "Always" features her cousin Cherrelle and broke the R&B Top 20. The urgent "Say a Prayer for Me" is a lyrical snapshot of '80s-era ills. Other standouts are "Give It to Me," the ethereal ballad "Why Would I Believe," and the sweet, bouncy "Stay With Me." Some tracks from Always are on Pebbles' Greatest Hits released by Hip-O/Universal on April 25, 2000 and Heart of Soul [Polygram] issued in January 2000.

A great follow-up

I remember when this album broke out. It really was a good follow-up for Pebbles, whom many, including me, would believe would only have two great songs ("Mercedes Boy" and "Girlfriend"). My favorite tracks are "Giving You the Benefit", "Always", "Backyard", and "Love Makes Things Happen" w/Babyface, basically which all hit the charts as hits. It's worth having for some good R&B flavored dance-pop!


This is a classic album! We grew up jammin to Mercedes Boy! This is awesome!!


My favorite tracks on this album are all the slow jams; Why Do I Believe (including prelude), Always, and Stay With Me. They will probably go down as some of my all-time favorites!!

Born Perri Arnette McKissack in Oakland, California, on August 29, 1964, the singer (who is the cousin of R&B singer Cherelle) got her start in the early '80s as a backup singer for percussionist/band leader Bill Summers and the funk outfit Con Funk Shun, helping co-pen one of the latter band's...
