The only full length album cut by singer Taana Gardner – quite a surprise, given how much impact she had on the clubs with her 12" singles at the start of the 80s! The album's got Gardner as a much richer singer than you might expect – able to lay back on a mellow track as well as step out on a groover – always with that higher range of vocals that really made her a standout at the time, but in ways that are never gimmicky or poppy
at all. And in fact, there's a lot more depth to the record than you'd guess from the dated exercise cover image – a classic soul approach that's also quite a surprise for the mostly disc
o West End label too. Tracks are all nice and long – and backings are by Sunship, with Bernard Wright on Fender Rhodes. Titles include "Work That Body", "We Got To Work It Out", "When You Touch Me", "Paradise Express", and "Just Be A Friend". CD features five bonus tracks – "Heartbeat (12" club)", "Heartbeat (12" party)", "No Frills (12" Larry Levan club)", "No Frills (12" party)", and "Work That Body (orig 12" mix)". Also then features a whole bonus CD – Kenton Nix's West End Works – with titles that include "There's Never Been No One Like You (orig 12")" by Kenix with Bobby Youngblood, "Heartbeat Rap" by Sweet G, "Rap Your Heart Out" by Sweet G, "Serious Sirius Space Party (12" club)" by Ednah Holt, "Chillin Out (12" voc)" by Inez Brooks, "No Sense (orig 12") by D'Bora, "That's The Word (unreleased 12")" by Taana Gardner, and more mixes of these tracks too.
