Nearly every one of Patrice Rushen's R&B hits -- including the Top Ten singles "Haven't You Heard," "Forget Me Nots," "Feels So Real (Won't Let Go)," and "Watch Out" -- are featured on the single-disc anthology Haven't You Heard: The Best of Patrice Rushen. With the exception of "Watch Out," her only Top 40 hit for Arista, the material is entirely drawn from Rushen's heyday at Elektra, when she was fusing jazz with R&B and pop. The songs on Haven't You Heard represent the high watermark of her fusions, which makes the compilation both an excellent introduction and a comprehensive career retrospective.
