Album Review

Released in 2006, this package from Legacy combines the third and fourth albums by Sade: Stronger Than Pride (1988) and Love Deluxe (1992). While the single-disc The Best of Sade and the double-disc The Essential Sade cover the singles and better album cuts, the group didn't record much filler and designed their releases to be played from beginning to end. In the U.S., the earlier album (highlighted by "Love Is Stronger Than Pride" and "Paradise") went triple platinum, while the latter (highlighted by "No Ordinary Love" and "Cherish the Day") went quadruple platinum. When this set was first issued, it retailed for roughly the price of one full-price album.
