Product Description

First time on CD for this 1985 album from the Canadian duo featuring one bonus track: 'Angel In My Pocket' (alternate cassette version). Louise Reny and Leslie Howard were the brain trust behind this innovative group. They are so popular overseas that they can't even walk down the street in the Philippines without being recognized!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album Aug. 14 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this a year ago, and received it quickly. This was one of the few vinyl albums that slightly pre-dated the CD, and was never originally released on CD back in the day. I was happy to see a CD was finally made available after all of these years. If you enjoy Canadian groups from the 80s, this album will not disappoint. One to One had great talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's Not to Like ? Feb. 21 2012
Format:Audio CD
Like the subject title says " ditto ". The quintessential Canadian explosive music
scene ambassadors of the early 80's. This was the first Canadian music " power couple "!
( after Sylvia and Ian Tyson of course ) Louise brings her readily identifiable voice
singing originally produced pieces like she knew them off by heart. Les' lyrics and
compositions and play underscore the whole album - with that melodic " Techno Sound "
so typical of the time. I hope they kept the master tapes and press them to vinyl soon
since that is where they belong !

4.0 out of 5 stars a rare 80s album finally on CD March 12 2010
By Daniel W. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Part new wave, part pop rock, One to One had a minor alternative radio hit with "Angel in My Pocket," but this entire album is filled with danceable, upbeat pop rock and synthpop songs, many of which easily could have crossed over to top 40 radio. Think of other female/male duos like Roxette and Animotion. The big disappointment here, but not a surprise considering it's the Wounded Bird label, is the lack of any major bonus tracks, which would have included the 12" versions of Forward Your Emotion, Angel in My Pocket and There Was a Time. All we get is the 'cassette version' of Angel in My Pocket, which is shorter than the album version.

As for sound quality, I didn't find any issues with the volume fading in and out. It was actually quite bright, loud and clear. The only two issues I noticed was a subtle scratchy noise repeated a couple of times during the opening of Angel in My Pocket and the cassette version of the song actually sounds like it drags a little like, well, a cassette tape!

Track list:

1. don't call it love
2. angel in my pocket
3. hearts and diamonds
4. where's the answer
5. forward your emotions
6. there was a time
7. black or white
8. love is blind
9. boys will be boys
10. tell me straight
11. angel in my pocket (cassette version)

3.0 out of 5 stars Extremely hard to find May 10 2009
By Matt Eye - Published on Amazon.com

This album is not available on CD, and is very hard to find on tape and vinyl. The manufacturer has not released it on CD (as far as I know).

Bought the tape (the only copy available) new from Amazon last year. Fortunately, my tape deck took care of the noise with Dolby C Noise Reduction setting and burned to a CD-R.

This artist sounds very much like Madonna, even so Deniece Williams (I once mistook her as Madonna for "Without You," an excellent song).

If you like Madonna, Deniece Williams, and other artists with such an amazing, renowned voice, One to One's Forward Your Emotions is a great choice. That is, if you can find one.

One 2 One's Imagine It (notice they changed their name) and One 2 Many's Mirror are available on CD, and I guess not nearly as rare. Still, One 2 One's Imagine It was not a great album from the early 1990s, but One 2 Many's Mirror is excellent but sounds dissimilar from Madonna.

Wonder if these artists knew each other or borrowed ideas for their names, I have not a clue.

I have all three albums, although I'd rate One 2 Many's Mirror four stars (one more star than this One to One's review for best quality sound possible - on CD). Hope this helps, if you like quality, obscure music from the 80s.

Wish I had 1-2-3 album too. It's probably One to One's rarest, and I could not find it anywhere. (Maybe someday I will luck out - I once heard a song from 1-2-3, don't remember what it was, and it was a very good tune.)
5.0 out of 5 stars This is 80's baby!!! Nov. 16 2012

Do you like the 80's? Do you like 80's synth pop music? Then this is just what you need. I Got this album for Angle in my pocket, and was thinking I would probably not like rest of the songs, I mean, that's how it usually is, right? But not this time! I mean, Angel is still by far the best (Must be the nostalgia) but the rest were very good too.

The sound quality is Excellent. I use B&W speakers with Rotel/Krell amps, so I know a thing or two about quality recordings, and this is one of them. Dunno why that one guy said the music fades. I was worried for a sec, but thankfully, it does not. All in all if you want to be transported back to the 80's with that classic synth, classic high vocals, and that classic beat to match, then buy this time capsule.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have on CD March 29 2012
By Fred - Published on Amazon.com

I've had this cassette tape since I saw the video for Angel In My Pocket and had a crush on the lovely Louise Reny. I was actually just about to transfer my still functioning cassette to digital via Logic on my Mac with a ProTool interface lol. I decided to search for it and it was nice to find that it's on CD now. I had their other cassette with Memory Lane on it? hope they put that one out too although if I recall it wasn't as good as this.

Louise has a beautiful squeaky texture to her voice, and most of my favorite singers have a similar quality, John Lennon, Elizabeth Fraser, Robert Plant, Freddie Mercury, Bjork etc... these songs are not the greatest, but for that time they had a unique pop sound mainly due to Reny's vocals. She has an odd accent, kind of a pouty, sexiness that I still find very attractive.

Favorite tracks are Where's The Answer, Black On White, Love Is Blind and fond memories of Angel In My Pocket... there was a girl I knew back then and in typical romantic fashion I attempted to imagine her as my angel, NOPE she was straight from HELL.

I appreciated the quick delivery, however the sound quality is not the best (the volume fades in and out). Regardless, it is still a good item at a good price. I bought 3 CD's and 1 was great, the other 2, not so good and this was one of the 2.
