Half fine disco-soul, half schlock

(4 out of 5 stars)
""Danger High Voltage" is Betty Wright's best album. Released as it was during the heyday of disco, it struggles against sounding dated, but it mostly shines. Betty's voice is one of the most solid of the period's female R&B singers, equally at home with tender ballads and surging dance tunes. The Toussaint-penned "Shoorah shoorah" is worth the price of admission, but there really isn't an unlistenable tune on the album. "This time it's real," on the other hand, is formulaic drivel, saddled with the worst production cliches of the period.I rate this four stars simply by ignoring "This time . . ." "Danger . . ." has the virtue of not having been overplayed, so Betty will sound fresh to your ear, unlike certain soul divas whose records deserve to be retired for a decade or so."
