"This is not one of the disco legend's better albums, even though this CD reissue of Call Me contains additional remixes of several of the songs. There is some stylistic variety: a short gospel song, He'll Understand, and a passionate soul ballad, One Night Only. Good Feelin' is another soul number with an interesting arrangement and impressive vocals. The trouble is that the real disco songs lack catchy hooks or memorable tunes. Too Late and Power Of Love are great for the dance floor but not hit material. The album's saving grace is Sylvester's high-powered interpretation of the old classic Band Of Gold, quite a spectacular disco version, and even more so in the stunning remix. Unfortunately it shows up the lack of melody in the other songs. Sylvester's best work can be found on his Greatest Hits compilation."
Buy this CD!

"Having been a Sylvester fan since the early days..."Dance Disco Heat" all I can say is this is a fantastic CD. I bought it when it was still on vinyl. The dance songs pump. The ballads are pure gospel at it's best. Dance music lost a great performer when this artist passed. If you love Sylvester's music there is a greatest hits CD import from Canada that is 2 discs full of the 12" hits, no fillers. Enjoy."
