CD Reviews

An uncut diamond!

"When Shame and Smooth Talk hit the radio waves in Holland back in 1977 the country (at least the part that loved soul music) was changed forever.
Just imagine a terrific voice, tight playing, some of the best funketeers around (Instant Funk) all together creating the nicest danceable feel good soul music. A very Philly-sound like production with nice guitar, percussion, sax solos.
Even though the record was played over and over in all the discotheques the lowlands had to offer, I wouldn't want to call this disco music. The horn-percussion driven up tempo songs are definitely made to move you, but wooow, what a diversity. Still so rough and wild, not so much streamlined like most music that people stamped as disco.
If you like Instant Funk, Teddy Pendergrass (who co-wrote one song), this might be for you. If you're more into the true disco craze, you might want to check out her later discs.
As to the cover: horrible! Check out the other customer image. That was the original cover. Thank God the back cover is the same as that of the original lp."

"This reissued cd debut classic from Evelyn Champagne King is excellent in every way. Apart from the known hits, other songs from the lp such as "Smooth Talk" and "The Show Is Over" really compliment the singer well -- the latter a ballad vocal showcase for Ms. King, something she is not well known for. Of course, fans have known for years The Champagne has more than a way with a slow tune. Would rate this one 10 stars if I could. This reissue will leave listeners no doubt as to why the original vinyl lp was a million seller - the gold standard before the RIAA lowered its certification requirements."

"This woman can sing ya'll! From her bona fide hit "Shame" to the mellow "The Show Is Over"-late 70s R & B doesn't get better than this. Class A Entertainment."
