    Though a browse through Billboard chart books might suggest Carol Douglas was a one-hit wonder, the story is not that short. Besides her Top Ten R&B and Top 15 pop 1974 single "Doctor's Orders," Douglas subsequently scored a number of successful dance singles, including 1976's "Midnight Love Affair" and 1979's "I've Got the Answer." This collection contains all of her '70s essentials for Midland/RCA, as well as two of her '80s recordings for Next Plateau. Highlights include the subtly sassy "Who, What, When, Where, Why," later recorded by Dionne Warwick; "My Simple Heart," a simple yet catchy club number with a funkier edge than most of Douglas's material; and the classic "Midnight Love Affair" -- its quiet passion and fervor atop an irresistible but not overbearing beat is timeless. She doesn't have the dynamic pipes of Donna Summer or Martha Wash, but Douglas adapts her sultry pipes effortlessly to each setting and in the process gives a refreshingly different slant to the phrase "dance diva." ~ Justin M.
