>ALL THE LOVE Oleta Adams (Pioneer) On her first studio disc since 1997, Oleta Adams still has a wonderful way with pop songs, even if none are as glorious as her 1990 hit “Get Here.” Her rich alto soars on a cover of Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance.”
SUPER CALIFORNIA Funky Green Dogs (MCA) Melding tribal house rhythms with the gospel-charged vocals of featured singer Tamara, this dance duo achieves that rare mix: electronica with soul. Includes the recent No 1 club hit “You Got Me (Burnin’ Up).”
BEHIND THE MUSIC The Daryl Hall and John Oates Collection (BMG) This greatest-hits disc (with three new tunes) served as the soundtrack to the recent VH1 special on the ’80s chart-toppers. After all these years, their blue-eyed soul would still make Sara smile.
