This Time They Told the Truth: The Columbia Years

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
The best of Hill's late-'70s stay at Columbia Records, This Time They Told the Truth might be a bit of a shock to listeners not familiar with the period, for Hill's always smooth vocals are embellished with a very disco-fied production, not always disturbing, but definitely obtrusive in several places. The songs themselves are quite good distilled from 1978's Let's Make a Deal and 1979's The Mark of Z.Z. Hill, including "Stop by and Love Me Sometime," "A Message to the Ladies" and the title track.
