Madness, Money and Music In 1993, Sheena Easton took a detour from the R&B, Prince-flavored dance music that kept her near the top of the charts through the mid- to late 1980s and early 1990s and recorded a superb standards album. Easton's voice has never sounded so clear, and this stellar set truly allows the singer to shine, as she subtly wraps her pipes around these timeless tunes, effortlessly transforming each into her own.

These albums and the remarkably powerful, often underrated, nuanced voice of Sheena Easton were a touchstone for me in high school and college. I have remained a devoted fan through the years. To be able to own her first 5 albums in one CD package and revisit each one in its entirety has been a treat.

Excerpt from liner notes:
"'NO STRINGS' has a Pop/Jazz feel that is the result of my pop vocals over the superb jazz musicians who deliver Patrice Rushen's arrangements so beautifully. It is a style that blends the past and the present, the era the songs were written in leaves its traces in a contemporary interpretation. The lyrics of yesterday still touch the heart so deeply today. I hope they will touch you, too.
Listen and you will hear a story which charts the course of a relationship from hopeful beginnings to its bittersweet end - love found, love lost, but life must go on - with or without strings."
