The eponymous debut album from Whitney Houston is celebrating its 35th anniversary in style with a gorgeous 180-gram peaches-and-cream reissue. Packaged with the original 1985 album is the first US release of the Whitney Dancin’ Special EP. Previously only available in Japan, the collection includes extended remixes of You Give Good Love, Thinking About You, and Someone For Me, as well as a remix and instrumental version of How Will I Know.
The Whitney Houston anniversary edition also features a 40-page hardcover photo and lyric book filled with new essays from Pat Houston, Narada Michael Walden, LaLa and other artists who contributed to the album.
Upon its original release, the LP earned Houston a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance for Saving All My Love for You. Now in 2020, eight years after the singer’s death, Houston has posthumously joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class that also boasts Depeche Mode and T-Rex.
