Whitney Houston, 'Whitney Houston'

Whitney Houston, 'Whitney Houston'

Arista, 1985

She had been a model and a nightclub singer when she cut this smooth R&B debut. Her vocal gifts and technique are astounding; even slick tracks such as "Greatest Love of All" stick. Best song: "How Will I Know," perky synth funk evoking Houston's family friend Aretha Franklin.
