"Long before 1984's worldwide smash, "High Energy", Evelyn Thomas and producer Ian Levine were creating musical magic. This, her first full length outing, was a major success in clubs (both gay & straight) across the states and a minor hit worldwide. Prominently featuring the (actual) high energy beat prevalent in 1978/1979 and the "sound" marketed by the musical marriage of Ian Levine and Fiachra Trench. The essential key to Evelyn's success is her incredible vocal range and usual voice, in which the listener never knows, whether it's a black or white female singing. The across the board hit was "I Wanna Make It On My Own". Although the other uptempo tracks, "It's The Magic Of Your Touch", "Look No Further", and "Back to Reality" were club played as well. The other gem to this release, "Thanks For Being There", showcases Ms. Thomas' prowess at balladry and proves that she isn't/wasn't a "strictly disco" artist. One of my all time favorite albums, I was thrilled to see it released on compact disc. Added this to my ever expanding collection of "classic" disco releases that I have converted to owning on compact disc. If you enjoy other Levine-Trench classics, such as Seventh Ave., Barbara Pennington and James Wells then Evelyn Thomas is for you!"
