ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you're a Janet Kay fan, you'll definitely consider her new greatest-hits album, "The Definitive Hits Collection," a precious compilation of lovers-rock reggae. And considering the high prices her albums are fetching on the internet, the word "precious" is probably an understatement. The good part is, all of Kay's albums are abundantly deserving of their upscale prices. But for those of us who love, but cannot afford, Janet Kay's classic albums, "The Definitive Hits Collection" represents the ultimate bargain. It contains 18 of Kay's early hits, including all nine songs from the "Silly Games" album, along with an additional collection of gems released between 1977 and 1985.

The album opens with her classic rendition of Minnie Ripperton's "Loving You," followed by the Alton Ellis standard "I'm Still In Love." Both songs set a mellow mood, caressing the listener with slow grooves and rosy melodies. What follows are two of the most emotionally evocative songs from Kay's early career -- the relaxed and introspective "Silhouette," and the sentimental "Capricorn Woman," both of which provide a warm window into a woman's hidden romantic feelings. This window opens even further within the yearning lyrics of "Do You Really Love Me," and "Can't Give It Up." Male listeners can gather valuable and essential information about women from these two songs. The centerpiece of the album, undoubtedly, is Kay's lovers-rock version of GQ's soul hit "I Do Love You," which provides a unique spirit of enchantment that a loving couple will not soon forget. The ever-romantic "Closer I Get To You," a duet between Kay and Dennis Brown, is also a musical masterpiece -- presented as a slow, roots-swingbeat groove that inspires romantic dancing.

The album also contains Kay's now, anthemic UK chart topping smash hit single "Silly Games", which in 1979 earned her a place in the Music Guiness Book of Records as the first Black British born female reggae artist to enter the top of the British Pop Charts.

In total, "The Definitive Hits Collection" will leave you wanting more Janet Kay albums in your lovers-rock collection. You'll also appreciate the opportunity to own an important piece of Lovers Rock history at a reasonable price.
