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!

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 !

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!

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.
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.)
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.
