Album Review

This disc offers the full retrospective treatment to one of disco's lesser-known divas. 12 Inches & More collects all of Madleen Kane's club favorites from the 1970s and 1980s, all included in their full-length mixes to please the disco fans that this disc is obviously aimed at. The best material here is strongly reminiscent of Donna Summer's mid-'70s work: Songs like "Rough Diamond" and "Cheri" are Euro-disco delights built on thickly layered arrangements that sprinkle lush, romantic layers of piano and strings over an insistent bed of percussion. Kane's ethereal vocals float over the top, usually fleshed out by a prominent background chorus that enhances the melodramatic flavor of songs like "Forbidden Love." Unfortunately, not all of the material here is as strong as those highlights: For instance, "Playing for Time" is a repetitive, melodically weak song that pushes Kane's wispy voice to its breaking point. The collection's overall quality is further diluted by a trio of weak mid-'80s tunes whose anemic synthesizer-only arrangements and simplistic melodies sound especially pitiful when surrounded by the otherwise lushly textured Euro-disco presented here. Despite this inconsistent material, 12 Inches & More conveniently collects all of Kane's best material in one package and offers enough quality material to make it worthwhile for disco fanatics. ~ Donald A.

It's frothy disco fun

This album has something most others don't: a sampler. If you are intrigued... buy track 12 and you can find the tracks you like. "You Can" is my person fave followed by the two "Fire" songs. Madleen Kane is kind of like light ABBA...fun, not too serious, addictive.

You Can You Can You Can Madleen anytime !!!!!

I just love Madleen Kane and from the first time I ever saw her or heard of her music which of course was on Solid Gold in Summer 1982 when "You Can" was performed by her. My jaw dropped , my heart fluttered and I was in awe of her beauty and that voice sent chills down my spine. I raced to the nearest record store in the Mall to buy up the 45 single of that very song and to this very day still have it along with all Madleen Kane's albums !!! I may have been just a little boy in 1982 with a HUGE crush but if you give this album a listen you will fall madly and deeply in love or lust with Madleen's voice yourself. Go on what do you have to lose and think of all you will gain from this beautiful talented Godess !!!

Great!!

......but whatever happens to the track " Secret Love"...I luv that song...oh!well

12 Inches and More, Madleen Kane
