Carol Williams only released two albums: Lectric Lady her now classic Salsoul album in 1976 with the alleged first ever 12 single More and sampled Love Is You and Reflections of Carol, yet she remains performing to this day and put out a string of boogie oriented singles in the 80’s. I’m happy to report that Reflections is a delight: full of strings, catchy, funky dance tunes that appeal to the romantic in me. Dance The Night Away is the opener, a joyous fast paced celebration of the disco lifestyle with a catchy refrain that sinks into your head on multiple listens

lWilliams Carol Williams is one of the first ladies of disco. The first female artist signed to Salsoul Records, her 1976 album ’Lectric Lady on the label was the first of any solo act, her single ‘More’ was one of the genre’s first ever 12 s. Her second album, 1979’s ‘Reflections Of Carol Williams’, saw her part company with Salsoul and assume full creative control for the first time in her career. With 1978’s ‘Love Has Come My Way’ Carol had scored a hit with producer Tony Valor and it was to his distinct talents she returned for ‘Reflections O. Now rightly regarded as one of disco’s most important early producers (not least thanks to Maryann Farra’s legendary 1976 LP for Brunswick), Valor’s Latin-edged percussion, prominent rhythm guitar and expert orchestration run throughout ‘Reflections Of Carol Williams’.

Carol Williams, born in Montclair, New Jersey, United States, is a vocalist and songwriter who achieved success with her disco songs in the 1970s. She was the first female artist signed to the disco label Salsoul Records. Carol Williams was once a member of the post-disco/garage house studio project called Komiko. She worked with producer Vincent Montana, Jr. and the Salsoul Orchestra

Carol Williams is one of the first ladies of disco.

Reflections of Carol Williams is an impressive progression from 'Lectric Lady, with a more varied palette of arrangements and Williams sounding more assured and lively. Originally released in 1978 on Roy . Hot Productions reissued the album on CD in the mid-'90s. The mastering quality on the reissue varies, with a particularly grainy sound on the set's lovely closing ballad, "He's My Ma.

RE : Sleeve has mastering credit for José Rodriguez at Sterling Sound, N.Y., but the run-out etchings don't support this: no "STERLING" stamp, no JR or TM/JR initials, and not José Rodriguez's handwriting. Although there are no identifying marks, it has the same widely-spaced handwriting as many records mastered at Quality Records Ltd. The album was set to have a USA release and promo copies probably exist or at least a test pressing from Sterling mastering.Of course a Quality pressed album would not feature Sterling stamp as it would have been a unique metal master at Quality records. I've even heard some releases Remixed on Quality Canada before making a metal stamper. So many times Quality would get a multitrack master, not just a mixdown.

Carol Williams only released two albums: “Lectric Lady” her now classic Salsoul album in 1976 with the alleged first ever 12” single “More” and sampled “Love Is You” and “Reflections of Carol”, yet she remains performing to this day and put out a string of boogie oriented singles in the 80’s. I’m happy to report that “Reflections” is a delight: full of strings, catchy, funky dance tunes that appeal to the romantic in me. “Dance The Night Away” is the opener, a joyous fast paced celebration of the disco lifestyle with a catchy refrain that sinks into your head on multiple listens. “Tell The World About Our Love” is the longest track here, just over seven minutes, though that was normal in the disco period and like it’s predecessor is a happy uplifting tune full of gorgeous orchestrations and a hot breakdown. The pace slows for “Love Constitution”, but again this one showcases her vocals and has those sweeping strings that I’m a sucker for; catchy chorus too. “Take Your Time” is a bit more gritty, a few more horns and some nice vocal work from her and her backing vocalists. “I Get It” is again a beautiful string laden dance song that wraps you up with the breathy vocals from Carol taking you to disco heaven in 6 minutes. “I Need You Baby” is a midtempo tune which isn’t quite as strong as the rest on here but still has some nice instrumentation. And finally the sole ballad of the album “He’s My Man” is pleasant; but no more than that. Produced by Tony Valor, the man behind Soccer, Fantasy, Touch and many others this is typically Tony in that it is drenched in strings and some unique yet appealing changes. Like many Hot Productions releases there are no liner notes, but the original artwork is mostly retained and this remains a quality disco album perfect for swirling around on the floor.
