On January 26, 2010, Arista Records/Legacy Recordings will release the 25th Anniversary Edition of Whitney Houston, the astonishing debut album that catapulted a virtually unknown young artist into the upper reaches of pop superstardom in 1985. The Whitney Houston – 25th Anniversary Edition CD/DVD package includes the international chart-topping original Arista album – remastered in its entirety for the 25th anniversary – along with five bonus tracks including Whitney’s a cappella recording of “How Will I Know” plus a stunning live performance of “Greatest Love of All.”
As an added bonus for fans, the 25th Anniversary Edition of Whitney Houston includes a features-packed new DVD. Three rare tv performances are included: “I Am Changing,” a song from the 1982 Broadway production of Dreamgirls, performed live at the Arista Records 10th Anniversary celebration in 1985; “You Give Good Love” performed live at the first annual Soul Train Awards Show in 1987; and Whitney’s breakout national TV debut singing “Home” (from The Wiz) on the Merv Griffin Show in 1983. All four classic music videos – “You Give Good Love”, “Saving All My Love For You”, “How Will I Know”, and “Greatest Love of All” – appear on the DVD. Exclusive and newly filmed interviews with Whitney Houston and Clive Davis round out the bonus DVD portion of the Whitney Houston– 25th Anniversary Edition collection.
