Hi-Five with LeVert? No, Hi-Five in this case is a Rhino compilation series, not the R&B group. This is a brief overview at five tracks, and it includes some of LeVert's biggest hits and some less notable tracks: "(Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop) Goes My Mind" (number one R&B, 1986), "Casanova" (number one R&B, 1987), "Rope a Dope Style" (from the album of the same title, not released as a single), "Good Ol' Days" (number 12 R&B, 1993), and "Throwdown" (another deep album cut). The group's three other number one R&B singles are not here, so this should be considered a flawed sampler rather than convenient one-stop shopping. Besides, LeVert's catalog is wholly deserving of a proper anthology.
