AllMusic Review by

Originally released on ABC Records in 1978, this compilation succeeded Choosing You, which spawned Lenny Williams' biggest solo hit, "Shoo Doo Fu Fu Ooh!" (included here). The tunes run the gamut from disco, ballads, and the sociopolitical whoop em' up "Changes." "I Still Reach Out" has a stalking beat, and Lenny's in-your-face vocals, accented by an ear piercing rock guitar. Producer Frank Wilson snatches a piece of "Backstabbers" for "Have Past Love." Theatrical love ballads like "Cause I Love You," "Think What We Have," and "Love Came and Rescued Me" are better appreciated live. The disc contains two industrial strength disco tracks: "Midnight Girl" and the infectious "Free Fall (Into Love)."
