Not Quite an Ultimate Collection....
By a song 4u
To take advantage of their holdings, GRP released this final Patti Austin project for their label. GRP used songs from other projects Patti appeared on during her GRP tenure, the duet with black country star Cleve Francis "We Fell In Love Anyway" and the soundtrack song "I'll Keep Your Dreams Alive" from the film "Freddie The Frog" with George Benson. Patti's out of print live set "Patti Austin Live" is featured not with a track from that set, but an outtake "The Girl Who Ued To Be Me," the studio version is from the film "Shirley Valentine" and the studio album "Love Is Gonna Getcha." The rest of her studio material brought together here, although not comprehensive, her recorded output for GRP including a remix, a single, and a studio ouutake, the opener "Hold Me" intended for Patti's last GRP album "That Secret Place" released in 1994. Because of the limited material here, this cd should have been called "Patti Austin, The Best Of Her GRP Recordings." The moniker "Ultimate" should have been saved for a cross licensed collection of her hits, as if that will ever happen.
