Comments


After The Success Of "Every Drop Of Your Love" From Stacy Lattisaw's Previous Album, "Personal Attention" Motown Focused On A Stacy As A Unabashed Soul Diva. "What You Need" Is A Funky R&b Track With A Heavy "New Jack Swing" Feel. "Dance For You" Is Another Dance Track And Stacy Gives It An Enthusiastic Vocal, With Help From Her Duet Partner In Crime, Johnny Gill. Gill Is Pretty Much Just Vamping And Ad-libing, But His Presence Seems To Inspire Stacy's Performance. "You Touched The Woman In Me" Seems Like Filler, But "Are You Man Enuff" Works Better As A Somewhat Satifying Dance Number. "Guilty" Is A Sexy Surrender To Love/lust And Stacy Is Able To Convey These Feelings With Conviction, Right Down To The Inticing French Vamp. "Falling" Is A Solid Soulful Rendering, That Should Have Been Released And Pushed As A Single. Further Evidence Of Motown's Lack Of Support And Visionary Focus For The Singer. "I Don't Have The Heart" Was The Only Track On The Album Geared Torward A Pop Audience. Unfortunately, There Must Have Been A Shortage Of Good Song Material, Because Stacy Always Seemed To Bump Heads With Other Artists Covering The Same Songs. James Ingram Released A Version Of "I Don't Have The Heart" And With The Support Of His Label The Song Went On To Become A Hit For Him, But Stacy's Version Was All But Ignored. Motown Redeemed Itself By Releasing, "Where Do We Go From Here" A Duet With Johnny Gill That Went On To Become A Big R&b Hit. Out Of All Of The Duets Between Johnny And Stacy, This Was The Most Souful. It's Been Reported That The Two Stars Weren't Even In The Same Studio At The Time Of Recording, But You Wouldn't Know By The End Results. "Where Do We Go From Here" Is Another Classic Performance By The Duo. "That's The Reason Why I Love" Has A Nice Message, But Doesn't Offer A Memorable Enough Hook, Reducing It To Album Filler. In Contrast, "Tender Love" Is Another Slow Burnin' R&b, "baby Makin'" Jam. Stacy Gives Another Inspired "power House" Vocal And The Song Should Have Been Released And Pushed At Radio As A Single. "What You Need" Is A Fine Offering From Stacy Lattisaw And One Of Her Strongest And Most Essential Albums/cds.
