No Way to Treat a Lady/Music, Music

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - J. Scott McClintock
Helen Reddy's No Way to Treat a Lady/Music, Music is the fourth installment of Raven's admirably packaged two-fer releases, and contains those 1975 and 1976 albums, in their entirety, plus one rare bonus track "One Way Ticket" from 1968. No Way to Treat a Lady contains the titular Top Ten hit and a host of other, primarily piano-driven, ballads like the Neil Sedaka-penned "Don't Let It Mess Your Mind" and the Paul Williams/Kenny Ascher gem "You Know Me", as well as some forays into country-pop, bossa nova, and blues.

All Music Guide - J. Scott McClintock
Helen Reddy's No Way to Treat a Lady/Music, Music is the fourth installment of Raven's admirably packaged two-fer releases, and contains those 1975 and 1976 albums, in their entirety, plus one rare bonus track "One Way Ticket" from 1968.

Music, Music is a decidedly more eclectic and upbeat affair, pulling in stylistic cues from all over the place. There are breezy, Bacharach-ian excursions "Gladiola," "You Make It So Easy", bluesy numbers "Get Off Me Baby," "Ladychain", light country "Mama", jazzy ballads Paul Williams' torchy contribution, "Nice to Be Around", and even a little Philly soul "I Can't Hear You No More". Reddy tackles them all with admirable gusto and shows a grittier side than she had on her previous albums. Looking at the songwriting credits, it is obvious that there are some heavy hitters contributing here, but there are quite a few exceptional studio musicians in tow as well -- most notably, future Toto founders Jeff Porcaro, David Hungate, and David Paich. After a long string of streamlined, ultra-successful albums, No Way to Treat a Lady and especially Music, Music provide Reddy with a chance to move a bit outside of her strictly ballad-oriented repertoire and show her to be a commendably versatile vocalist.
