Originally released on Motown (6059). Includes liner notes by Steven Ivory.Mr Richie's brand of silky-smooth macho soul was the butt of some critics during the early 80s. A plethora of handsome studs with great voices, whopping great medallions, who just wanted to lurve all night long followed Richie. Yet another album crammed with hit singles, it was one of the 80s sales phenomena both in the USA and the UK - as was "Hello." Corny but delicious, and unashamedly romantic, and consequently, more couples have danced to his "All Night Long (All Night)" than any other - and then 16 million couples went out and bought it.
