"Love Sensation, the album, features the fantastic title track in three guises, although two are virtually indistinguishable. That this song has been sampled in so many ways so many times is a testament to its appeal. Holloway's vocals are in full bloom here (and in Black Box, and in Marky Mark, etc etc), but the complexity of this Dan Hartman composition is lost in the sampling. It is a rousing dance floor classic that seems not to have been included in many of the "Best-Of" disco lists that grace the appendices of the burgeoning popular dance books out lately. I think perhaps it should.The album as a whole is, like Holloway's previous lp "Loleatta," an assortment of dance tracks, bluesy ballads, and a few midtempo ballads. Bobby and Cecil Womack's "Short End of the Stick" is a fine uptempo piece, too short at 3 1/2 minutes. There are several other Womack pieces, eccentric projects that the singer throws herself into. There are several Norman Harris, Philly-based tracks. Holloway belts them out in robust fashion. "Love Sensation" grew out of the Holloway-Hartman collaboration that also produced his "Relight My Fire." There are no other Hartman-produced songs on the album. A Shep Pettibone remix of "Sensation" shows the songs' timelessness but does not equal the original Tom Moulton mix."
