"I had heard some Angela Bofill numbers before hearing this CD, but was not that familiar with her. Thanks, in part, to the reviews I read here, I was intrigued about this CD. Also, I noticed that it had a song called "Love Light" on it. After hearing a snippet of the song I realized it was a song I have been looking for for over 20 years. I remember hearing the song "Love Light" in the original version by Yutaka Yokokura & Patti Austin on a Quiet Storm radio program. I remember loving the song & wishing I could find a copy. I have found some of Yutaka's CD's but "Love Light" is very hard to find. Anwyay, though this isn't the original version, I do now have this song in my collection & it is definitely performed well by Angela Bofill.
The rest of the CD is just as good. I agree that some of the disco-ish numbers sound a little out of date, but the production & her voice make up for it.
For fans of Pauline Wilson & Seawind (a fusion group from the late 70's who I really liked & whose albums are hard to find), I find that Bofill's voice reminds me a little of Pauline Wilson's though it is no imitation. Some of the songs have a Seawind feel to them, so it is almost like I have re-discovered Seawind as well.
Anyway, thank you reviewers for helping me discover this wonderful CD. I sure wish there was more music like this out there today. Really, the music on this CD, though it is from 1981, sounds very un-dated & still fresh today."
