It's an odd album for 1975. Except for a half-successful attempt at disco with "shake me, wake me" and a better old-fashioned torch remake of "moanin' low", it's mostly pleasant ballads here. But there are some exquisite results. " by the way" co-written by barbra, is a haunting lost love reflection, "letters that cross in the mail" a surprisingly interesting song about long distance love, and "a child is born", originally intended for "up the Sandbox", features one of barbra's loveliest vocals ever. "Widescreen" doesn't hold up over time, but the Stevie wonder "you and i" certainly does. Rupert Holmes was a good choice of producer, certainly better than her recent choices, as he knew what complemented her musical mastery best. All in all, a solid and enduring work. Plusses: liner notes by barbra and some terrific photos.
