Roberta Kelly: Gettin' the Spirit [Casablanca, 1978]
One good thing about disco manufacturers is that they'll try anything. Here the gimmick is Jesus, invoked by name over unusually bright, bouncy, and consistent dance tracks flavored with gospel piano and some Jerry Jumonville saxophone. For me, this conjunction adds a perverse fillip to an already attractive record--I'm sure the folks at Studio 54 can use any kind of salvation that comes their way. Mary Magdalene would approve.
