One would expect more from the running time than the eight live songs listed. Hidden bonus tracks, perhaps? No, but set closer Lost In Music does last a soul-destroying 22 minutes and 30 seconds! All but one of the girls’ other Top 20 hits are here, including a well received Frankie, Sledge’s surprise No.1 from ‘85.
And the liner notes claim this recording – with so-so sound quality even for a budget release – dates from the early 1980s! Treat yourself to a decent greatest hits collection instead. Disco, sure, but Magic? Hmm, where’s Paul Daniels when you need him?
