"ROMANCE IN THE NIGHT was the second album that Jose Feliciano recorded when he was under contract with Motown. What makes the album so special was that it marked the triuph reunion of both Jose and producer Rick Jarrard. Feliciano and Jarrard first met in late 1967 when they began working on what was to become Jose's smash breakthough album entitled FELICIANO! which included Jose's colossal and soulful remake of "Light My Fire" in January of 1968. Romance In The Night is a wonderful album that includes four songs composed by Jose and it also includes a great instrumental titled "Cuidado" meaning (Watch It). Feliciano also does a great and fabulous remake of "So Into You" which was a big hit for the Atlanta Rhythm Section in 1977. Another great song that Jose covers on this fantastic CD is "Play Me" which is a Neil Diamond composition and Feliciano's soft and tender vocals are indeed very nice and spiritual all at the same time. Perhaps my favorite song on the album is a song that even though was not composed by Jose, his vocal delivery is simply astonishing and that is "Taking It All In Stride" this song is really very nice and soulful which is the perfect way to best describe Jose Feliciano's style. The album was recorded and released in October of 1983 and it was the last time as far as I know that Jose Feliciano and Rick Jarrard worked together. I do hope that they can work together again, they really work well together and it shows at the end when you're listening to the finish product. This album is a great buy and its full of that sprcial Feliciano magic that fills every song."
Great, true Jose!

"It's a really great album again produced by Rick Jarrard, the man who worked with Jose forthe worlds hits in 60s and early 70s. This album was released in 1983 contains the really soul side of Jose, Romance in The Night is a great tune, plus the jazz instrumental Cuidado, So Into You, Let's Find Each Other Tonight are my prefeered:; really I don't understand how Motown at that time not has well promoted a gem like thiis for leave space and money for some his 80s artists then not value a hand of the great Jose Feliciano."
