AllMusic Review by

Rita Coolidge's follow-up to her 1977 Top Ten album, Anytime...Anywhere, was a disappointment both artistically and, at least relative to its predecessor, commercially, just ducking inside the Top 40. Here she began to cross the line from soft rock to adult contemporary music, with her soft vocals and glossy period late-'70s production rubbing against largely lackluster material. The standout tunes, tellingly, were the oldies/soul remakes, but no one would count these as notable reinterpretations of the Fiestas' "So Fine," the Everly Brothers' "Bye Bye Love," the Sweet Inspirations' "Sweet Inspiration," Fleetwood Mac's "Songbird," and Boz Scaggs' "Slow Dancer." The record did include a song co-written by brother-in-law and co-producer Booker T. Jones, and a moderate hit single in the lightly disco-fied "You."
