This album is a compilation record mainly consisting of tracks done with the Rotary Connection. Fortunately this album allows space for Lonely Girl under her pseudo Andrea Davis and All of it and Happy New Love with the Gems. Her Chess Years is a true and pleasant journey of the first years of her career long before she released her worldwide hit Loving you. Her Chess Years, even though being a compilation, is a mash up of genres and effortlessly switching from psychedelic blues/rock to pop-soul or 60ís R&B and represents Ripertonís strength and vocal range (3 and half octave in Lonely Girl). For beginners as well as the experienced listeners a joy to listen to.
