HERstory, Vol. 1 is a selection of remixes, hits, featured appearances, and soundtrack contributions dating from 1992 through 1997, the era during which Mary J. Blige released her first three studio albums. It was put out in four configurations: digital, CD, and double LP, as well as octuple 7"s in a carrying case. The track lists differ slightly across formats; only the CD and LP editions are identical. Universal's catalog department presumably directed the majority of the project's budget toward the production of the vinyl versions, as the compact disc has the look of a checkout-counter impulse purchase, and the accompanying booklet contains minimal information. There are other confusing details. Method Man is demoted to featured artist on the Puff Daddy mix of "I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By," Nas is uncredited on "Love Is All We Need," Smif-N-Wessun are listed as "Smif N' Wesson" on the remix of "I Love You," and so forth. The chart-topping debut "You Remind Me" and My Life standout "Be Happy" are among a handful of classics represented in original form, but the all-contemporaneous remixes, previously scattered across What's the 411? Remix and multiple-format singles, are the greater attraction, reminders of why Blige was justifiably promoted as "The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul." No matter the effort put forth with this, Blige's rich MCA catalog -- five multi-platinum albums, zero expanded/deluxe editions, not even a simple hits overview -- remains woefully neglected. ~ Andy Kellman

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?

Stax, Sounds Like The South...

Motown in the North. And Stax in the South. Two quite distinct conceptions of soul music. In the southern humidity of Memphis, Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T and a few others invented a unique groove imbibed with blues and above all gospel.

Motown in 10 Albums

The leading authority in pop-soul music, Motown, has just turned sixty years old. This incredible record label founded by Berry Gordy produced hit after hit for Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Rick James and so many other musicians. Motown was first known through its singles, the popular music format at the time, but it soon adapted from 1965 onwards as albums began to emerge. The good old vinyl LP totally transformed the label that called itself “the sound of young America” and transformed its artists’ careers along with it.
