It’s probably no surprise that this one suffers from a number of the usual faults of 1980s production values.  The synths take away from it.  Guest Patti LaBelle, as expected, mostly just adds showy vocalizations like she’s trying to impress talent show judges.  This one is definitely not a good representation of Womack’s talents
