Seeking to compile the most memory-laden R&B classics of all time, alongside the forgotten gems rarely seen on modern compilations -think Terence Trent D'Arby 'Sign Your Name' En Vogue 'My Lovin (You're Never Gonna Get It) , Brandy Feat Monica 'Boy Is Mine', Aaliyah 'More Than A Woman- R&B Anthems is compiled with extensive market research using only the biggest public favourites from 1979 to present day,

Featuring 12 UK No 1s, choosing only the most iconic, publically cherished anthems to include in this one-off classic album, spread chronologically across 3CDs,

CD1 starts with a round up of the best of the current crop of R&B from early 00s to present day, starting with Gnarls Barkley 'Crazy' & massive hits like Chipmunk' Diamond Rings' & continues to trace a thread of glittering quality including Justin Timberlake's 'Rock Your Body', Outkast! 'Hey Ya', Alicia Keys 'No One', right up to present day, with Estelle 'American Boy', Jordin Sparks 'Battle Field' and Flo Rida 'Right Round' .

CD2 continues the journey into the radio and dance floor smashes of the 90s with Whitney's 'My Love Is Your Love', Coolio 'Gangsta's Paradise', R Kelly 'I Believe I Can Fly', Fugees 'Fu Gee La', Jay Z 'Hard Knock Life', and Brandy & Monica 'Boy Is Mine' before embarking on a foray into the soon to be historic 00s with Missy Elliott 'Get Your Freak On', SugaBabes 'Overload', Craig David 'Fill Me In' and more.

CD3 begins its journey at marriage of disco and soul in 1979 including Rose Royce 'Love Don't Live Here Anymore', Sister Sledge 'We Are Family' and McFadden & Whitehead 'Aint No Stoppin Us Now' before moving through the 80s soul of Luther Vandross 'Never Too Much', Slave 'Just A Touch of Love', Joyce Simms 'Come Into My Life, the spunk of Prince's 'Kiss' and on into the early 90s with 'Vanilla Ice's seminal 'Ice Ice Baby' and the timeless Fresh Prince of Bel Air's 'Summertime'.

This shelf splintering tracklist heaves with the weight of some of the biggest names of over 30 years of dance soul, rap and blues, and truly is NOT TO BE MISSED!
