Pennye Ford (former Soul Train dancer) was a major contribution to the Total Experience family, despite this being her only album, of which led to the poor sales in the US. She started out as a backing vocalist for The Gap Band and Yarbrough & Peoples before Lonnie Simmons signed her for her own record deal in 1984. She could really write and sing, but as usual, 1984 was not a good year for an up an coming R&B artist, especially when a record label wasn't showing much interest in promoting the artist. Poor sales don't justify how amazing this album was put together and I'm happy that it finally got a itunes release a few years ago (I bought the vynil before the itunes release). My favorites were the funky two stepper, "Don't You Know That I Love You," the beautiful, "Uh Oh I Made A Mistake," and the top 30 R&B smash, "Change Your Wicked Ways." I love the extended 12 inch version of the latter that included a nice electric guitar solo after the second verse and chorus. That version should've been in the music video (who could forget the bizarre video with a Prince-like looking Stoney Jackson portraying Pennye's cheating lover while she was the love interest of poor Todd Bridges). "Feel The Music" and "Spend My Time With You" sounds like outakes from Yarbrough & People's Be A Winner album, yet they were dance floor burners. The original version of "Dangerous" lacked any enthusiasm and thats why the more superior 12 inch extended version was released and it was even added on this re-issue. "Serious Love" was seriously well written and produced by Pennye herself. It had that "ready for the club" feel to it and it should've been the 4th single on that album. Despite of the enthusiasm and hard work creating the Pennye album, Pennye Ford fell into obscurity by mid 1985 after a few performances (like both American and UK versions of Soul Train, just to name a very few). With these nice dance cuts and slow jams, Pennye could've been as big as Whitney Houston or Janet Jackson if she was promoted better. She had a great fashion sense, beautiful, and was an awesome writer and vocalist so I don't understand why she wasn't marketable? She didn't sound much like her other competitors so being that, she went unnoticed and the album fell off the charts (in the mid 80's a new black artist wasn't guranteed success unless they sang, performed, and marketed themselves like The Pointer Sisters, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston and/or Madonna). Later on, Pennye became a successful background vocalist for countless artists and was even the powerful voice behind Snap's 1990 enormous club hit, "I Got The Power." Pennye is a great add to your collection if you're a true fan of 1980's R&B and dance.
