The VOICE, Stilled

at the very beginning…

So, at this point, you all must have “And I Will Always Love You” stamped endlessly, maddeningly, on your brain, not to mention “The Greatest Love of All,” or even her “Star Spangled Banner.” Whitney Houston, of course, did indeed have one of the world’s great voices, but, so often so much of her music tended towards anthemic bombast.

The one recording of hers which gives me infinite pleasure is her perfectly lovely, easy-breezy cover of the the Isley Brothers’ “For the Love of You,” which you can enjoy here and remember, and revel in, all that youthful womanly vocal perfection.
