180-gram gatefold double LP

By the time this was released in 1994, something unexpected happened. Sade's early work became classic and the later additions boasted even better vocals and songs that nicely improved on the theme. The timeless sound and class always exhibited makes Sade Adu and her band a no-brainer for an appealing compilation. Like Al Green's Greatest Hits, The Best of Sade doesn't detract from the original albums and is a marker of time, not the end of the act.

The ice-princess demeanor and detached vocals worked perfectly for the mid-'80s singles and radio samples "Smooth Operator" and "Your Love Is King." The tracks from the make-or-break second album, Promise, seem less dolorous propped up and sequenced for a compilation. The sensual-to-a-fault "The Sweetest Taboo" and "Never As Good As the First Time" both retain their strength here. The songs from Stronger Than Pride — "Love Is Stronger Than Pride," "Nothing Can Come Between Us," and the great "Paradise" — all benefit from Ian Cooper's mastering job.

This set also includes tracks from Sade's "comeback" CD, Love Deluxe, including "Kiss of Life" and "No Ordinary Love." As a bonus, The Best of Sade also includes a rare cover of "Please Send Me Someone to Love" from the Philadelphia soundtrack.

In my system I rate it closer to 4/5. Fairly quiet pressing to boot. I really can't complain as there's tons of hits in this double LP set.

Compressed and flat

This reissue is flat and without good bass, compared to the cd!. and that is not saying much as I have been buying a lot of Audiophile titles of late with great results. This one misses the mark big time sorry.
