A hot classic. Just got a reissue as well.

This just might be the best dance track ever recorded in history. Why? It is so fast and wicked that it blows your mind to the point of no return. I don't know who the keyboard player is here, but the style ranks at the top of my list for best keyboard work in a dance song. It's slick, powerful and at times even scary. Ms. Lites sounds very much like Martha Wash of Two Tons O' Fun. For some reason West End Records was able to find talent in the early 80's to record these underground dance trax. Sybil Thomas, Brenda Taylor and the lead singer of Love Club on Hot Summer Nights all have excellent voices. Why these women never went on to big careers is shocking.
