'80s Soul Classics, Vol. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman

The biggest hit here is Kool & the Gang's "Let's Go Dancin' Ooh, La, La, La," a lightweight Top Ten R&B single. The plush 52nd Street ballad "I Can't Let You Go," produced by the unsung Nick Martinelli, is a pleasant surprise. Its quality level is similar to that of Martinelli's contemporary output with Loose Ends and Phyllis Hyman.
