"too bad they dont make this album anymore. i discovered her music about 10 years ago. her voice and the production of the album is outstanding. it reminds me of childhood. i wish i was a grown up when the 80's was around. luckilly for me i own this album."
A very underrated Evelyn King "lost" classic

"This is one of my favorite Evelyn King CDs, but for some reason, it flopped upon release in the early 90s and is hard to find now - Evelyn's rich vocals never sounded better, and songs featured several cuts produced/written by Chicago house legends TEN CITY ("Loverman" and "Day to Day"), as Evelyn ventured into club territory here. This CD also include Evelyn's own take on BODY's "Footsteps in the Dark" - all in all, a nice addition to your Evelyn King collection. Now I just wish her other "lost" albums were finally made available on CD, like "ACTION" and "SO ROMANTIC" from the mid-80s. Too bad. Evelyn King has one of the richest, strongest voices in all of R&B - where is she now?!"
Not terrible, but sounds tired next to some of her brilliant

"Evelyn "Champagne" King secured a place among disco immortals with the legendary hit "Shame", showed that she was still in peak form a few years later with her brilliant "Get Loose" album, and even had a silky, sensual hit as recently as 1988 with "Kisses Don't Lie". A year after that, she made this album. While it is by no means wretched, it's definitely lacking in something that made some of her previous efforts so outstanding. Her singing is certainly what someone should rightfully expect from her, but the material here just doesn't do justice for her voice the way some of her other albums do, particularly on her bland and melodically uncreative cover of the classic Isley Brothers slow jam "Footsteps In The Dark" which, itself, is already a heavily covered (and unfortunately, sampled) song. I have much respect for Evelyn "Champagne" King and am an avid collector of her albums, but this just clearly isn't her best work."
