I still remember when Summer Girls came out in the summer of 1988, long before Dino's 24/7 release in 1989. But this album proved that this Las Vegas native could make a solid dance heavy pop album. He has shades of R&B and rap in this album, a rarity from a white male artist. He packs a whole lot in 3 to 4 minutes of the songs, yet keeps the energy full and entertaining on each one. I still like I Like It and its percussion heavy, live sound. It had a freestyle feel so common in some New York area artists like the Cover Girls, Sweet Sensation, Nayobe, Lizette Melendez and others. While his '93 followup didn't have as much response as this gold selling album did, this was a good start for this singer. Very strong singing voice too!
