Digitally remastered and expanded edition including five bonus tracks. It was Melba's turn to shine when she entered the studio to cut A Lot Of Love in 1986. An army of writers and producers were hired for this effort - Kashif, Paul Lawrence, Gene McFadden, Vaneese Thomas, Howard King and Rahni P. Harris. Collectively, this team created an album that covered one theme - love and romance. In addition, unlike her dance-driven The Other Side Of The Rainbow and the rock-flavored Read My Lips, ballads were the focus on A Lot Of Love with only three uptempo songs in the bunch. Musically, R&B with a touch of jazz was the chosen flavor throughout the disc. As far as singles were concerned, it was a no-brainer. Melba's duet with Freddie "A Little Bit More" was the first out of the gate, released the same time Capitol/Hush put out Freddie's "Tasty Love" - both songs hit #1 on the R&B chart one after the other. Then came her tune with Kashif, "Love The One I'm With", which peaked at #5 R&B. In early 1987 came another one-two punch - "Falling" by Melba and Freddie's ""Have You Ever Loved Somebody" - two more back-to-back chart-toppers on the R&B listings. In addition, the album became Melba's most successful to date - #7 R&B LP's, #91 Pop LP's.
