Keith Sweat has long been renowned as a true master of the slow jam. Now, as he turns his talents for the first time ever to a celebration of holiday music, Sweat casts a radiant glow, proving there's no one better qualified to deliver a Yuletide disc titled A CHRISTMAS OF LOVE.

The R&B and soul superstar's signature mix of smooth vocals and warm, inviting grooves works magic as Sweat unwraps nine seasonal selections, including a hearth-warming take on the holiday classic “The Christmas Song.” A CHRISTMAS OF LOVE also features among its musical gifts a trio of songs written by the artist: “Under The Tree,” “Once A Year” and “It's Christmas Again.” On “Point Of Christmas,” Sweat expresses his faith with a song that pays tribute to “the reason for the season.”

 

Spanning 1987-1998, this is the first-ever greatest hits package from the new jack superstar who delivered five consecutive 1 R&B albums. Features 17 smooth, soulful smashes, including "I Want Her" and "Make You Sweat." Liner notes include photos and a Q&A with the man himself!

An icon of new jack swing, Harlem-born Keith Sweat burst onto the urban scene in 1987 with his triple-platinum debut, Make It Last Forever, which went to 1 on the R&B chart and featured the mega-single "I Want Her." His next four albums -- I'll Give All My Love To You (1990), Keep It Comin' (1991), Get Up On It (1994), and Keith Sweat (1996) -- also topped the R&B charts. While legions of new jack soundalikes inevitably followed, none of them matched Sweat's mastery of the slow jam.

The only video collection from the new jack superstar. This career-spanning DVD companion to the top-selling CD gathers videos for 12 of Keith's smooth, sexy smash hits, including the 1 R&B singles "Keep It Comin'," "Twisted," "Nobody," and "Make You Sweat.".


But it was another Casey/Finch original, "Rock Your Baby," that R&B artist George McCrae scored a hit with in 1974 as KC & the Sunshine Band began issuing further albums and singles, quickly scoring big hits on their own. The group then began an impressive run of disco hits: 1977's "Shake Shake Shake (Shake Your Booty)," "I'm Your Boogieman," "Keep It Comin' Love," "Boogie Shoes" (the latter included on the monster-selling soundtrack to the hit John Travolta disco movie, Saturday Night Fever), 1979's "Do You Wanna Go Party," and 1980's "Please Don't Go." Despite earning nine Grammy nominations (receiving three awards) and selling millions of records, KC & the Sunshine Band were still susceptible to the backlash that disco bands felt by the dawn of the '80s, eventually leading to dwindling sales and the group's split by the early '80s (although KC scored a moderate solo hit in 1983 with "Give It Up"). Come the '90s, an appreciation of everything '70s swept across the U.S., which led to a renewed interest bands from the era, prompting KC & the Sunshine Band to re-form for concert performances. That decade saw the release of countless KC "hits" collections and even an episode of VH1's popular Behind the Music series that studied the group's ups and downs
