Enjoyable pop album

"This accomplished 1977 album has long been difficult to find. It opens with the soaring (Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher And Higher, which is followed by the swinging and swaying The Way You Do The Things You Do. The slow and melancholy Boz Scaggs composition We're All Alone was a hit, I think, and she elegantly covers I Don't Want To Talk About It.
One of my favorites is her version of Words by the Gibb brothers, and she renders Sam Cooke's Good Times in an appealing way. The Kris Kristofferson song Who's To Bless And Who's To Blame gets a rousing treatment over some really funky music.
All the tracks are enjoyable, including the powerful rock ballad Southern Lady and the closing track, a cover of Neil Sedaka's The Hungry Years, a yearning ballad. All in all, Anytime Anywhere is an appealing pop album with many a soulful moment.
