Album Info


Vicki Sue Robinson's music embodies all the best elements of disco -- it is dramatically arranged, lushly orchestrated, percussive and easy to dance to. Robinson herself has an ebullience that just floats off the vinyl. And it certainly helps that she could sing the sh*t out of any song put in front of her, whether it was good or bad. Half and Half was the follow-up to 1976's fantastic Vicki Sue Robinson. Here, she fails to recapture the infectious energy of "Turn The Beat Around" or the zesty disco magic of "Daylight" but she does manage to come up with an impressive disco album. Album opener, "Feels So Good It Must Be Wrong", is a little pop-leaning and sounds like it was aimed for radio rather than clubs but is still enjoyable. As is "Jealousy" which is even more blatantly geared for AM radio. However, "Don't Try To Win Me Back Again", "Trust In Me" and "Hold Tight" are unqualified disco smashes. Even the ballads are good, "Freeway Song" is soulful and "We Found Each Other" is stirring. The funk-rock of the title track shows (again) that Robinson's talent transcended the disco genre. Unfortunately, Half and Half didn't make much of an impression commercially or at radio. I am including the 12" version of "Nighttime Fantasy" as a bonus track here. "Nighttime Fantasy" was recorded for a disco-themed vampire movie called Nocturna: Granddaughter of Dracula which by most accounts is nowhere near as fabulous as it sounds. There is nothing lackluster about "Nighttime Fantasy" though, it is top-notch, mainstream disco.
