Album Info

Roberta Kelly is a talented American singer who moved to Europe in the early 70s. Kelly hooked up with the German maestro of dance music Giorgio Moroder and produced several hits abroad before crashing U.S. shores in 1976 with her No.1 disco hit "Trouble Maker". Getting The Spirit was her second U.S. release for Casablanca records and it was produced by Giorgio Moroder and Bob Esty with contributions from Moroder co-horts Keith Forsey and Harold Faltermeyer. It is a continuous play set with no breaks between tracks which was a popular format for records played in discotheques of the 70s (but very annoying in this digital music age). Getting The Spirit also has the distinction of being the first disco/gospel album -- coming 5 years before the Clark Sisters scandalized the gospel music community with their Paradise Garage floor-filler "You Brought The Sunshine". Unlike the dance-oriented music of the Clark Sisters, and later Tramaine Hawkins, Getting The Spirit does not really incorporate the cadence of gospel music; it is a disco record with traditional 'pop' vocal arrangements. As well, the disco is not as dramatic or textured as Moroder's classic work with Kelly's Casablanca labelmate Donna Summer. Even so, Kelly is an engaging singer who emotes more than adequately. The standouts are her version of Walter Hawkin's "Oh Happy Day" and "Speaking My Mind In His Ear."
