The Captain & Tennille's "More Than Dancing...Much More" CD was released on July 23, 2002, which is 20 years after the original release of "More Than Dancing" on Wizard Records in Australia. The original album was the intended USA follow up to their 1980 album "Keeping Our Love Warm" on Casablanca Records. The 1982 release was commissioned by Wizard Records in Australia, and gave Daryl and Toni the budget to create their brand of music. The Captain & Tennille were having difficulty during this time of finding a home with a US recording company after Casablanca Records was absorbed into Polygram. They left Polygram and went to Columbia/Sony which did not understand their music and approach. The Captain & Tennille left Columbia/Sony without releasing any new music on that label and this is when Wizard Records came into the picture.
The Captain & Tennille have an international following and why not take the chance on recording an album of new music in Australia. The album was recorded at Rumbo Recorders (Captain & Tennille's recording studio) and then released only in Australia. Unfortunately the album didn't catch on internationally and was soon forgotten. There wasn't any major hits and little to no radio airplay. The album was never mentioned by the Captain & Tennille during any concert appearances and they never performed any song live, so obviously it was an undiscovered gem in hiding.
Most fans are not even aware of this album unless they were truly devoted and discovered that it was available on Ebay for very high prices. I came across the album in 1988 when I just happened to see the cassette version in the bargain discount bin at a Tower Records.

Captain & Tennille fans rejoyce! You can't go wrong with a funky cover of "Come On A My House" or the 1980's sound of "Denny's Such A Flirt" or "Mr. Persuasion". Tennille's vocals are in top form. You'll be tapping your foot and smiling all the way through this cd. This will have to do until MAKE YOUR MOVE and SONG OF JOY are reissued on cd.

Let me start off by saying that I never thought the Australian-only album would ever be released on cd. To have the official release of it on cd is wonderful!! To top it off, 11 "bonus" tracks make this a nice Captain & Tennille collectible.
My favorite "new" undiscovered hit from Toni & Daryl is "Get Ready Teddy." This cut has me hit the repeat button until I can't get enough! Toni's vocals, Daryl's keyboards and even the drum machine (from the 80's) are all incredible!!!
The only flaw that I find on this cd is the same flaw that I found on their "Complete Hits" package on Rhino Records. The flaw of 1 omitted cut that probably could have been on the album. On the "Complete Hits," it was "This Is Not The First Time" from their second Casablanca album. What I truly longed for with this "More Than Dancing..." collection was their recording of "Pete Won't Dance" (if it was recorded!) Toni wrote it and they performed it "live" in concerts so I suppose it was recorded and could be found in the vaults somewhere. Let's hope that the next cd will be called "The Missing Hits... And More."
Overall, the sound is sensational and if you're a Captain & Tennille fan, it's mandatory that you own this fantastic cd!!!
Let's hope that A&M and Polygram Records will someday see fit to release the "Song Of Joy" through "Keepin Our Love Warm" cd. Now, wouldn't that make a GREAT holiday gift, hmm???

Finally, the pop duo's final album of all-new material is available on CD, previously released only in Australia. Recorded in 1982, it definitely sounds it, and that is not a bad thing. A mish-mash of light pop and smokey ballads, the album's standout numbers are the title track and "Come to Me," a duet with Bobby Caldwell. Either of these could have been hit singles in the U.S., if only they'd had a recording contract at the time!
But some of the biggest gems are the unreleased tracks, 11 in all -- especially the late 80s recordings. Their haunting disco rendition of Rosemary Clooney's "Come On A My House" is killer -- club DJs, take note -- and the Tennille-penned tunes "Denny's Such A Flirt" and "Boy Crazy" are wonderful, harkening back to an innoccent, early-sixties bubble-gum sound. The bonus tracks continue with "Love Survives," Tennille's agonized farewell to her friend, songwriter Howard Greenfield, and conclude with excellent cover versions of several 70s and 80s hits.
If you're a fan of Captain & Tennille or 70s music in general, buy this CD!

This CD is a real treat for any fan of The Captain & Tennille.
The original "More Than Dancing" album is perhaps the most
commercially consistent sounding album that they ever made.
Had it been released in the US at the time, it probably would
have produced many hits. Very ironic (and somewhat sad for us
fans, that it was not).
The first five bonus tracks are amazing. Captain and Tennille are so versatile as is evident by the way they superbly
adapted their talents to the time of the late 80s. My favorite
is "Come On A My House" which is very rythmic, sensual, and
displays Toni's deep voice in a very powerful manner.
The tracks taken from the "20 Years of Romance" CD are the
only disappointment for me. While Toni sings the songs beautifully, the instrumentation sounds like it is in the demo
stage, (which is noted by the Captain in the notes)and need to
be polished to match the mastery of the rest of the package.
All in all though, a must have for any fan of C & T
