Numerous guest vocal appearances augment the Memphis Horns here, giving the album a wider appeal. From the jazzy pop of “Living for the Music” to Average White Band clones “Don’t Change It” and “Give It to Me,” the horns’ bright, full, brassy sound dominates. A female vocalist delivers “Our Love Will Survive,” and disco numbers “Party Line” and “New Beginning” are as delightful as anything else on an excellent album that deserves to be reissued.
