Album Review

This pleasant collection contains all of the tracks (sans a brief reprise) from soulful singer Doris Jones' 1978 AVI LP Suddenly I'm Alive, as well as two single-only releases from 1976. Ian Levine's signature, Motown-inspired disco production gleams on tracks like the anthemic "No Way Out," the ten-minute-plus opus "Suddenly I'm Alive," and the soothing "Time on My Hands" — all lifted from the aforementioned album.

Johnson sometimes overlap heavily, Jones' understated approach insures that she stands apart from the pack. ~ Justin M. Kantor, Rovi
