Universal Music Enterprises have unleashed a slew of new Icon compilations that include hits packages from Jodeci and K-Ci & Jo Jo, Barry White, The Oak Ridge Boys, The Statler Brothers and Jessica Andrews

Each Icon album contains 12 tracks. Expanded 24-track, 2-CD packages are also available for Jodeci/K-Ci & Jo Jo, Barry White and The Statler Brothers.

Jodeci/K-Ci & Jo Jo Icon (Hip-O/UMe): One of the most popular R&B groups of the '90s, Jodeci also spawned the platinum duo K-Ci & Jo Jo. Now, for the first time, the best from both entities is presented in one package, as a single-CD and a 2-CD Icon. Among the Jodeci cuts are the R&B #1s "Forever My Lady," "Stay," "Come & Talk To Me" and "Cry For You." Among the K-Ci & Jo Jo tracks is the #1 Pop/#1 R&B "All My Life."

Barry White Icon (Mercury/UMe): One of the most recognizable voices in music, Barry White provided the soundtrack to love with the smashes "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe," "Never, Never Gonna Give You Up," "You're The First, The Last, My Everything" and the #1 instrumental hit "Love's Theme." The 2-CD Icon adds another dozen greats, including the R&B Top 10s "Playing Your Game, Baby" and "Your Sweetness Is My Weakness."

The Oak Ridge Boys Icon (MCA Nashville/UMe): One of Country's greatest vocal groups, The Oak Ridge Boys are spotlighted with 11 #1 hits, from "Elvira" and "American Made" to "Bobbie Sue," plus their breakthrough recording "Y'All Come Back Saloon."

The Statler Brothers Icon (Mercury Nashville/UMe): The 12 greatest hits by one of Country's most beloved singing groups include four #1s--"Elizabeth," "Do You Know You Are My Sunshine?," "My Only Love" and "Too Much On My Heart"--plus favorite "Flowers On The Wall." The 2-CD Icon adds a dozen more Country Top 20s.

Jessica Andrews Icon (Geffen/UMe): Much like today's Taylor Swift, Jessica Andrews was 15 years old when she debuted on the charts ("I Will Be There For You"). Later she would score the Country #1 "Who I Am." As she matured, so too did her subject matter, leading to the hits "There's More To Me Than You," "Unbreakable Heart" and "You Go First (Do You Wanna Kiss)."
