Comments


Stacy Lattisaw Made A Move From Cotillion Over To Motown Records In The Latter Part Of The 80's, Looking To Pump Some Much Needed "edge" Into Her Sound. Motown Paired The Singer With A Variety Of Top-notch Producers; Jellybean Benitez, Kashif And Narada Michael Walden To Name A Few. The Result Was "Take Me All The Way", A Record Consisting Of R&b/pop, Dance, And A/c Ballads. The Lead Off Single, "Nail It To The Wall" With It's Slammin' Drum Machine Beats And Infectious Hook Was An Instant Hit And Dance Floor Jam. Stacy Attacks The Vocals With An Attitude And Sass That We Hadn't Heard From Her Up To That Point. "Jump Into My Life", Is A Moderate Tempo R&b Track Produced By Kashif Whose Production Sound Was Hot At The Time. "The Hard Way" And "Over The Top" Are Two More Funky Tracks That Work Due To Stacy's Enthusiastic Vocals. The Ballads, "Longshot", "Love Me Like The First Time" And "You Ain't Leaving" Are Standard Pop Fare Geared For "cross-over" Appeal. "A Little Bit Of Heaven", Is A Fun And Festive Listen And Could Have Been A Hit Single For Stacy, But The Song Had Also Been Covered By A Few Other Artist's During That Time As Well (i.e. Gerry Woo). For The Most Part "Take Me All The Way" Was An Attempt At Crossing Over Stacy Lattisaw Into The Pop Market, And They Had Some Success With "Nail It To The Wall". "Take Me All The Way" Was A Great Way For Motown To Try And "test The Waters" So To Speak, In Order To See Which Direction They Wanted To Take Stacy. Except For Maybe A Couple Of Tracks, The Album Is Not Essential Listening For The Casual Stacy Lattisaw Fan.
