Shannon - Let The Music Play (1984) [1985, Reissue]

Shannon wasn't a great singer-as far as dance divas go, she didn't have the chops of Gloria Gaynor, Thelma Houston, Claudja Barry, Donna Summer or Loleatta Holloway. Shannon was merely a competent singer, but a competent singer who sometimes had great material and great producers to work with. And thanks to the production team of Mark Liggett and Chris Barbosa, Shannon's debut album, "Let the Music Play", has a lot going for it. Liggett and Barbosa give the album an attractive, high-tech sound, and some of the songs that Shannon embraces are excellent. Released in 1984, the haunting title song went down in history as a dance-floor classic-and club gems like "Give Me Tonight" and "My Heart's Divided" (both of which Barbosa co-wrote) are almost as strong. Shannon successfully ventures into pop-rock territory on "One Man," although she isn't very convincing on the ballads "It's You" and "Someone Waiting Home"-ballads and slow jams were never her strong point. But for the most part, Let the Music Play underscores Liggett and Barbosa's ability to make Shannon sound good.
