Seventies disco and soul,
This review is from: Think It Over (Audio CD)
Before Whitney there was Cissy Houston! Produced and arranged by Michael Zager, a disco genius of the 1970s, Think It Over is a nice mix of dance numbers and soul ballads.
The title track is a real stunner, a disco masterpiece with a powerful hook and rousing vocals. Love Don't Hurt People is a gentle and tuneful ballad with an impressive orchestral arrangement and moments of great vocal virtuosity. Somebody Should Have Told Me is an uptempo disco ballad and After You a slow song with beautiful piano.
Warning - Danger is a real disco stomper with a marvelous rhythm break whilst I Just Want To Be With You is a soulful torch song and Umbrella Song has a calypso feel. Sometimes is another torch song and I Won't Be The One another uptempo disco ballad.
This CD release contains extra tracks which make it value for money. Although never a big star like Donna Summer or Gloria Gaynor, Cissy Houston had her moments. I recommend Think It Over to those who are nostalgic for the disco era.
