Greatest Hits [Capitol] Review

by Andy Kellman

This isn't nearly as extensive as Castle's Dance With You, a double-disc anthology released just a year prior, but it does keep it to the essentials, including "I Gotta Keep Dancin'" (a number two club hit) "Dance With You" (number six club), "Keep Smilin'" (number ten club), "Show Me Where You're Coming From" (a number 23 black single), and "Hello Stranger" (number 20 R&B/hip-hop). One thing Lucas always had going for her was a lack of histrionics, a characteristic that often plagued her peers. She wasn't as successful as label mates Shalamar or Midnight Star, but she delivered plenty of fine singles throughout her career that were just as likely to tug heartstrings as they were likely to shake hips.
