Two CD set containing a quartet of albums from the soul vocalist. Thelma Houston was a mainstay artist at Motown from 1971-1979, worthy additions to previous SMR reissues of Thelma's Motown work. The Devil In Me (1977), Ready To Roll (1978) and Ride To The Rainbow (1979) focus on her work in the wake of the international success of her timeless cover of 'Don't Leave Me This Way', which catapulted Thelma to worldwide mainstream recognition. Like Ready To Roll, the album Reachin' All Around (a 1982 collection of material released after Thelma left Motown in 1979) is making it's worldwide first release on CD. Included on the (37) musically-satisfying tracks featured here are the charted hits, 'I'm Here Again' and 'Saturday Night, Sunday Morning'. Also included, two bonus tracks, 1977's 'If You Won't Let Me Walk On The Water', a non-album 'B' side and 1978's 'Love Masterpiece', from the soundtrack of the popular movie, Thank God It's Friday. Working with top producers including Hal Davis, Michael Masser, Van McCoy and Brian Holland, Thelma demonstrated her distinctive vocal style in full effect on a range of material from her covers of The Miracles' 'Love Machine' to an imaginative medley of 'Stormy Weather' and Ann Peebles' 'I Can't Stand The Rain' to the Stevie Wonder-Syreeta-penned 'Just A Little Piece Of You' and key tracks such as 'Memories', 'Rhythm Of Love', 'Your Eyes', 'Imaginary Paradise', 'Am I Expecting Too Much' and 'Don't Wonder Why'.
