AllMusic Review by

Some of these tracks date back to the '70s and were originally intended for Madame (i.e., "Time on My Hands"), but were given to Midnight Sunrise due to the inability of Madame -- a female trio -- to sing the songs. The baker's dozen of Tina Charles-ish tracks include extended disco mixes that are ripe for dancefloor kings and queens. Producer Ian Levine sought track-mixing assistance for himself and Paul Wilson from Al Goodman (the Moments), but Goodman wanted to do it alone and jettisoned the idea, so Levine and Wilson mixed the tracks without his help. "On the House," "In at the Deep End," "When the Beat Gets in Your Feet," and the 14-plus minute "Tripping Out Down Memory Lane (On the House Medley)," a collage of On the House tracks, among others, are danceable disco led by Midnight Sunrise's lead singer Sheila Hart.
