Cher made I Paralyze when she first was on Broadway with Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean. It's a mixed CD, but she is "good on "RUDY", "Games", and the especially brillant "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?". (note: this song is not the same "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind" that Dolly Parton wrote and recorded. Two totally different songs with the same title).
Update: March 2004: Re-reading my review in contrast to others, I have to also point out that "When the Love is Gone" is a brillant, heartfelt, power-ballad that touches the soul of any listener who has felt love and then, sadly, to have lost it. Also, "The Book of Love" is a fun, upbeat song to listen to/sing along with.
One interesting reaction I have had lately to the album: the instrumentation is heavily synthesized and sounds suddenly to me as a bit "old fashioned". Wonder if anyone else have the same reaction? Though Cher could record almost anything and I would love it, I am not as big of a fan of "Back on the Street Again" as with the rest of the album, though I acknowledge that Cher's devoted 80's "rocker Cher" fans will find it superb.
The album deserved/deserves more recognition, as do so many of Cher's works, and no one should miss this gem. My greatest disappointment: only 9 songs.
