AllMusic Review by

Motown alumnus Frank Wilson (Eddie Kendricks, Lenny Williams) produced this 1977 disco-oriented album for the singer best known for her gold singles, "Band of Gold" and "Bring the Boys Home." One of the LP's singles, "Bring Back the Joy" is melodic, has two tempos, and conga breaks. Other standouts are the loping, spacy mid-tempo single " I Get High (On Your Memory)" and the coy "Loving You Means So Much to Me," co-written by Gregory Abbott of "Shake You Down" fame.
