This collection documents the two-decades-plus recording career of R&B icon Luther Vandross. Even before he started putting out records under his own name, he was a first-call session singer (hes the one who created and sang the chorus hook on David Bowies -Young Americans,- for just one example). Throughout the 80s and the 90s, he was (both commercially and aesthetically) one of the most consistently successful R&B singer/songwriter/producers. This healthy two-disc selection of highlights from the impressive Vandross catalogue moves deftly from heartfelt ballads (-A House is Not a Home-) to percolating, poppy numbers (-Never Too Much-), spotlighting the mans mellifluous voice and tasteful phrasing at each turn. This is quite clearly the definitive career summary for this deeply influential R&B titan.
