AllMusic Review by

In 2012, the U.K.'s Expansion label combined the two albums by slick R&B trio High Fashion: Feelin' Lucky (Capitol, 1982) and Make Up Your Mind (Capitol, 1983). Assembled by Jacques Fred Petrus -- who was also behind Change, B.B. & Q Band, Zinc, and many others -- the group exemplified the polished, upbeat, post-disco sound of commercial early-'80s R&B. Anyone with an appreciation for any of Petrus' other involvements, Luther Vandross' 1981-1983 albums, or the contemporaneous releases produced by Leon Sylvers III or Kashif (the latter of whom contributed to Feelin' Lucky), should enjoy this anthology. (For completists, individual digital-download editions of the albums contain single and extended mixes.)
