Blessed with a great voice brimming with energy and ebullience, Vicki Sue Robinson made quite an impression in 1976 with her disco smash "Turn The Beat Around." It was a Top 10 pop hit and earned her a Grammy nomination, all at the tender age of 21. As a teenager, Robinson was a featured performer in the Broadway casts of "Hair" and "Jesus Christ Superstar." This self-titled opus followed less than a year after Vicki Sue Robinson's smash debut. Although this well-produced set did not contain any big hits, it is a very impressive effort. Side One opens with a rousing cover of Bobby Womack's "Daylight". While Womack's plush original was a somewhat melancholic confession of a nightlife addiction, Robinson's version is an upbeat, festive paean to partying all night long. "Daylight" is a straight-up, bonafide "club-banger" -- to use the technical phrase -- and it is shocking that it was not a massive hit on the order of "Turn The Beat Around". True to that earlier hit, most of the album features latinized arrangements with heavy percussion and horns. There are some very nice disco tracks on this album, including "Something Like A Dream", "After All This Time" and "Should I Stay". The ballads ("Falling In Love" and "Let Me Down Easy") are nice, too.
