Giving You the Best That I Got

Released 30 years ago today, GIVING YOU THE BEST THAT I GOT solidified Anita Baker's status as one of the classiest and most successful artists in contemporary R&B. RAPTURE producer Michael J. Powell returned for this fine follow-up, providing appropriately lush settings for the singer's soul-pop balladry. Among the many highlights of the 1988 Elektra collection are “Just Because,” the Latin jazz-tinged “Good Enough,” “Good Love” and the Top 10 hit title track (the latter two songs are also co-written by Baker). The set was a success by any measure, topping the Billboard chart, earning three Grammys and selling more than three million copies. An ideal showcase for the songstress, GIVING YOU THE BEST THAT I GOT is one of the best Anita Baker albums you can get.
