One of Cher's best albums, this 1976 release starts off with a bang with the great LONG DISTANCE LOVE AFFAIR. This rocker is filled with a terrific Cher vocal, and some guitar riffs, telling the story of a girlfriend of a rock musician. It got a lot of airplay here, though shockingly, it didn't hit the Billboard chart. Cher is at the top of her form with a strong set of styles. The 60's soul oldies KNOCK ON WOOD and I KNOW are really good, with the use of horns and backing vocals, recalling her 3614 JACKSON HIGHWAY album. The title track is a strong ballad , and SPRING is also a great story ballad, which was also done by Tanya Tucker on the country charts. IT'S A CRYIN' SHAME is catchy and upbeat, previously a hit for Gayle McCormick, and FLASHBACK is as well, previously done by The 5th Dimension. The whole album is a nice balance of different styles with the best L.A. musicians playing on here. Produced by Steve Barri [ The Grass Roots, Tommy Roe, Mama Cass Elliot ] and keyboardist Michael Omartian, there is much to enjoy on this album.
