Première fois sur vinyle; nouvellement remastérisé.

Avec Herbie Hancock, Martha Reeves, Alphonse Mouzon, Chuck Rainey, Patryce "Choc'let" Banks, Carlos Morales et des membres des Pointer Sisters.

Le livret du LP et du CD contient de nouvelles notes de Danielle Maggio interviewant Betty, ainsi que des photos et des paroles inédites.


Davis retrouve Carlos Morales, l'ancien guitariste de Funk House, et fait appel à des vétérans de l'industrie comme le batteur de fusion Alphonse Mouzon et le bassiste de session Chuck Rainey. De vieilles amies, Anita et Bonnie Pointer (The Pointer Sisters) et Patryce "Choc'let" Banks, ainsi que la légende de la Motown Martha Reeves, se joignent à Davis au chant. L'album qui en résulte, Crashin' From Passion, est le plus diversifié musicalement, mélangeant des éléments de reggae et de calypso ("I've Danced Before"), de jazz ("Hangin' Out in Hollywood", "Tell Me a Few Things"), de dark synth-pop ("She's a Woman"), et même de disco ("All I Do Is Think of You"). La voix de Davis est tout aussi exploratoire, puisqu'elle troque son sass et ses grognements caractéristiques pour des styles plus nuancés.

Parmi les quelques titres funk de l'album figure "Quintessence of Hip", dans lequel Davis salue des musiciens comme Bob Dylan, Billie Holiday, Stevie Wonder et John Coltrane, tout en intégrant habilement des éléments de leur travail. La chanson offre également un moment de grande vulnérabilité, lorsqu'elle chante : "N'est-ce pas riche ? N'est-ce pas queer ? Perdre mon temps si tard dans ma carrière". Cette phrase s'avérera prophétique dans les mois qui suivront.

Crashin' From Passion a été remasterisé par l'ingénieur Dave Cooley, nommé aux Grammy Awards, chez Elysian Masters, et pressé sur vinyle chez Record Technology, Inc. (RTI). Le livret d'accompagnement comprend un trésor de photos rares de l'époque, des paroles et de nouvelles notes de l'écrivain, ethnomusicologue et amie proche de Betty, Danielle Maggio, qui intègre des entretiens qu'elle a menés avec Davis et qui sont les derniers qu'elle ait jamais eus.
