Album Info

The debut album from Vicki Sue Robinson features the classic "Turn The Beat Around", one of the truly perfect disco confections of the 70s. The song featured pounding percussion, swirling strings and a distinctly latin syncopation. It was a top 10 pop hit that thrust the young, vivacious singer into the spotlight for a brief moment in the 70s. Gloria Estefan remade "Turn The Beat Around' in the 90s, turning it into a hit all over again, and she commented that the original marked the first time she heard latin-influenced music played on mainstream U.S. radio. Due to the success of 'Beat', Robinson's subsequent albums leaned heavily on the latin disco sound. However, Never Gonna Let You Go captures a soulful new talent experimenting with different styles. In some spots, Vicki is reminiscent of a young, sassy Bette Midler. Elsewhere, there are distinct echoes of Laura Nyro in singing and style, as well as the Broadway-esque belt typical of singers that have a musical theater background. She scats on the soulful midtempo "Wonderland of Love". However, "We Can Do Almost Anything" and "When You're Lovin' Me" are bland-ish 70s adult contemporary pop that don't really play to her strengths. The other disco tracks here, "Never Gonna Let You Go" and "Common Thief", generate some sparks. However, for anyone drawn to the frenetic first single, the rest of Never Gonna Let You Go was probably a let-down. It is a polished and well-produced effort that was probably better-suited to a Rita Coolidge-style AC chanteuse. Vicki would really come into her own on the self-titled follow-up album.
