This review is from: Think It Over (Audio CD)

I shockingly found this CD issue on another website and purchased it, but to review it...FAB! Cissy's THINK IT OVER was a statement in the late 70's. We all know her as Whitney's mom, but Cissy was first. Where do you think Whitney got the voice? This album can prove that.

The album is complete with all tracks from the original release, except the title track is the 8:03 remix after this album was repacked by Columbia with 4 extended versions of tunes and retitled WARNING-DANGER CISSY HOUSTON. Once you start listening to all the tracks, you just want to get up and boogie to the dance tracks and melt into the heartfelt ballads (After You and I Just Want to Be With You). The additional bonus tracks are pulled from the Private Stock album issued the year previous to THINK IT OVER, titled simply CISSY HOUSTON (green cover). These are the best of all from that album, especially Love Is Something That Leads You. I am hoping that MIL Multimedia will take the balance of that album, plus future tracks recorded for 1980's STEP ASIDE FOR A LADY and give Cissy her full justice with the best of her late 70's-early 80's magic. She brought down the house with her shows at the Bottom Line and Mikell's in NYC during this time, and prepared Whitney for the musical journey she is on now. Whitney sang back up on these albums, plus in these shows, and added an extra punch to what Mom already gave to the audience when she did a brief solo.
