Keep You Satisfied/Forbidden Lover Review

by Andy Kellman

After Nancy Wilson joined Ramsey Lewis for 1984's The Two of Us, she signed to that album's label of release, Columbia, and remained there through the majority of the following decade. This release, issued in late 2012, combines Wilson's first two solo albums for the label. Keep You Satisfied (1985) was produced by Kiyoski Itoh and is pleasant but easily forgettable adult contemporary R&B. Unsurprisingly, Marvin Gaye's "Just to Keep You Satisfied" is a better match for Wilson than Wham!'s "Careless Whisper." Forbidden Lover (1987), led by a charting duet with Carl Anderson, is a slick and sleepy affair that doesn't do justice to Wilson's spectacular voice.
