This was THEE one
Robert F. Phillipps | Glendale, CA USA | 09/27/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Listen up everybody: This was the album that got Robert on the radio. You had to be alive in 1978 and into music to know the refreshing impact his style had amidst all the disco-clutter at that time. To those who knew his style from this earlier time, his commercial "peak" was more of an anti-climax. I saw him in concert 4 times up close and he was a nonstop bundle of energy. He'd move from one song to the next and each one nearly melted into the next. (no, I was sober!) The rhythms were fantastic. Such an entertainer. And whenever songs from THIS release began, the crowd broke into their wildest cheers. They knew these were the songs that started it all. The ones that introduced us to this fabulous guy. The ones remembered most.... by those who knew him."
Double Fun,Quadruple Treat!

"This is the fourth of Robert Palmer's foursome of elegant,
funk R&B-tinged albums he recorded in the mid to llate 1970's and
it is yet another highpoint."Every Kind Of People" with it's
hihgly catchy steel drum melody is by far the ONLY way to start this album."Best Of Both Worlds" is an excellent Philly-style
dance number offering a welcome alternative to the Staurday Night
Fever infecting much of music at this point and on the strident
"Come Over" and the Sly Stone-style groove of The Kinks classic
"You Really Got Me" Palmer gives up the FONK!!!Think late 70's
pop was dull and shallow?Then pick this up (plus the three albums
that came before it)."
Sounds Better With Every Listen

"Robert Palmer's masterpiece. Of all of the white soul singers out there influenced by Marvin Gaye, you would have to put Palmer very high on the list. These are wonderful adult contemporary songs that are full of soul, heart, sass, sexiness, and intelligence. Excellent compositions, and Palmer sings them very well.

The whole vibe of this album makes this part of the 1970's look good. Loads of fun. Great album cover. This is the perfect laid back island vacation or sailboating record."
