4/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.0
Even at her weakest, Dana is delightful
Review written by John Fitzgerald, April 3rd, 2005

Like Jo Ann Kelly and of course, Christine, Dana must rank as one of Britain's best ever female blues vocalists. Although she probably doesn't enjoy the musical ideas here as much under David Bowie's management wing, I'm sure even they would admit that they made a few flubs on here musically. The most annoying of which is that possibly beautiful ballads like "Really love the man" & "Never knew" are marred by appalling arrangements on the chorus sections but Dana's talent still makes these highlights on the album along with the extended pop rock flavored "Don't mind me" and the gutsy, slidy rocker "Get my rocks off". Other numbers have considerably good funk levels such as "Pack your bags",
"Getting through to me", "Wanderlust" & "No tail to wag". It's an added plus that Bob Weston plays on all of the above mentioned songs (except "Never knew"). Hopefully, one of the Macsters will record something with Dana in the future that is more bluesy that I'm sure she would enjoy full heartedly so we can admire the entire range of her talent to the full. Anyway, there are enough good points to outweigh the bad here to make this a good purchase possibility.
