Wonderfully smooth soul from Evelyn Champagne King
– one of her real standouts from the early days, and a tremendous collaboration with producer/
arranger T Life! The sound here is upbeat and catchy, but never too poppy – done with a slight hint of that groove that King
would hit more famously in the 80s, but served up here with a deeper sense of warmth, and a slightly more laidback feel. King
is classy without being cloying – just like a sip of the right sort of champagne
– and T Life's backing
s often have a slight undercurrent of funk. Titles include the club classic "Shame" – plus "Smooth Talk", "Til I Come Off The Road", "Dancin, Dancin, Dancin", "Nobody Knows", "We're Going To A Party", and "The Show Is Over". CD features bonus tracks too – including "I Don't Know If It's Right (single)", "I Don't Know If It's Right (12" disco)", "Shame (single)", and "Shame (12" disco mix)".
