Producers include: Arif Mardin, Russ Titelman, David Foster.
Just as people were beginning to think she had peaked (after the less than great CHAKA KHAN), she bounced back with this excellent set. Using a glut of producers--Mardin, Titleman, Foster and more--she attempted, and achieved, the combination of a great choice of material with the ability to keep her fans dancing. The Bacharach/Bayer Sager/Roberts "Stronger Than Before" is beautifully performed, and la-di-da, ex-Spooky Tooth Gary Wright wrote "My Love Is Alive." Prince's "I Feel For You" is another strong track, featuring the distinctive harmonica sound of Stevie Wonder. A pretty joyous album for dusting away cobwebs.
