On Thighs And Whispers: “It is pretty jolly. It’s got a good deal of disco music on it. The form lends itself to a lot of theatricality and big arrangements and Arif Mardin is a brilliant arranger.

On Thighs And Whispers: “It is pretty jolly. It’s got a good deal of disco music on it. The form lends itself to a lot of theatricality and big arrangements and Arif Mardin is a brilliant arranger. There are songs on it that caught my ear a few months ago, some ballads, mostly rhythm and blues ballads. There’s James Taylor’s song, ‘Millworker.’ There’s the 1930’s song, ‘Big Noise From Winnetka.’ Arif had Bob Haggart, who was one of the writers of that song, play bass. It turned out great.” (The Free Lance-Star – Sep 22, 1979)
