Amii Stewart

Seven of the eight tracks on this LP, including the hit title song, are standard ka-booming disco—though relatively high-class disco. On the eighth tune, the near-ballad Only a Child in Your Eyes, Amii shows she can sing, with a hint or two of Diana Ross' subtlety and control. In any case I Stewart, 23, a dancer and actress (she had a bit part in King Kong), seems made for In disco, since she can belt a song and—perhaps most important—put on a wacky outfit and still look great.
