The perfect CD for those one-to-one sessions. Smooth urban with more dramatic performances than you'll find on or off Broadway. Keith Sweat and Jacci McGhee are inseparable on "Make It Last Forever," and Sweat's protégés, Kut Klose, get bed-roomy on "I Like." Simply Red's heart-rending recital of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' "If You Don't Know Me by Know" singes like the original. Add selections by Gerald and Eddie Levert, Mikki Howard, Chaka Khan, and others, including Shirley Murdock's seducing (she never holds back) "As We Lay," and you have a potent package of red-light specials.
