The second track "Ooo-Eee" is probably my favorite on this album. The first track, "Radioland" is pretty good too. The last one, "Long Distance Love" is the most moving. She really sings her heart out on that one. She had a awesome voice. I wish she was still around.

Nicolette's first LP, "Nicolette," was a certifiable smash. Over a half-mil in sales, one of 1978's biggest singles ["Lotta Love"], and a debut effort that had most critics applauding.

The followup LP, 1979's "In the Nick of Time," produced one, lower-top-forty hit ["Let Me Go, Love"], and demonstrated, more or less, that the "Nicolette" phenomenon wasn't going to be repeated, not in sales, not in singles, and not in sound ["Nicolette's" eclectic stylings were jettisoned in favor of an all-pop sound for "In the Nick of Time"]. Nevertheless, if "In the Nick of Time" was wildly different from "Nicolette," it was different in a good way, and some of Nicolette's finest songs grace that second LP.

Whether Warner Brothers just got tired of Nicolette because she hadn't replicated the success of "Nicolette" in her second LP, or Nicolette had a short time and a contract to play out with Warners, the third LP in about 3 years, "Radioland," went largely without notice, and even though I'm one of Nicolette's biggest fans, it's kind of easy to see why the only notice that "Radioland" got was largely negative.

The album is sometimes billed as Nicolette's disco-bunny album, but that's just wrong. Two songs at best approach anything near disco ["How Can We Go On" and "Straight from the Heart"]. So don't not buy the album because you think it's disco-fied, because it's not.

Shortcomings of the LP include the number of tracks and playtime [only 9 tracks grace this effort, and barely come in at over a half-hour], and once again, as with "In the Nick of Time," a real lack of the variety of musical genres that made the debut LP "Nicolette" so fetching.

I'll admit I'm a sucker for Nicolette and that voice is so charming. I have all her releases and this album is a strong effort with plenty of upbeat tunes and several laid-back numbers to balance the album nicely. Seems to always have a polished A-team supporting group working with her.

She must of enjoy singing tunes she felt an infinity towards. Her style and versatility was never in question. 40's dance tunes came along side Motown hits or '50s rockers. But she did even more and must of enjoy the heck out of it all. She was taken far to soon from us and her family. Her daughter Elsie May is about 22 now ...wonder if she has her mother's talent and voice?

i am just now starting to listen to Nicolette's lp from the 70's through 80's and must say i stayed away from this one as i had heard the terrible reviews way back when it came out so never bothered but finally listening to this lp and wow! what an idiot i was to stay away! very strong set! very strong vocals and great songs! so many great pop rock tunes that grew on me after a few listens. 'when u come around' and 'how can we go on' r pure pop pleasures and 'ooo ee' should have been a bigger hit. 'straight from the heart' n 'long distance love' r great ballads delivered only the way she can deliver. 'tears' after a few listens now has grown on me and one of my favorites on this cd so great stuff! so dont b stupid like i was and get this you will b happy you did! next on my 'to get' list is the 'all dressed up' lp which sounds from the clips to b another very strong set. there is an italian lp release called 'shadows of love' that if u ever see grab it! the few songs posted on youtube sound great and there is a song called 'let me be the one' that is amazing! cant believe it wasnt ever a hit here in the states! and 'sleep baby sleep' is another i just bought and soooo great! and if you have any information where i can find the 'shadows of love' pls let me know. my email is whiteruss@aol.com and any help would surly b great! i'm dealing with the after effects of cancer and mostly in bed these days so have lots of time to listen to lps of the past and discovering some great music that i missed in the 70's n 80's and i'm glad i finally got smart and turned on to some of Nicolette music now :) Nicolette is surly missed and just now realizing how grand of a voice and lady she was! miss you lovely lady!
