Consumer Guide Reviews:

Dancing Up a Storm [A&M, 1979]
The failure of "A Little Lovin'" to crack top forty portends a duller future for AM radio than any new wave blackout. A hooky girl-group classic that broke disco when a percussion break was patched in, the tune is certifiable contemporary pop. Wish I could recommend the album, too, but you know how girl groups are. C+
