Sheena's successes in 1983 ( :

We've Got Tonight, a duet with Kenny Rogers, hits US #6 and goes to #1 on the US country charts.
We've Got Tonight makes UK #28.

Sheena stars in her own NBC-TV special "Sheena Easton...Act One."
Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair) makes US #9.
LP Best Kept Secret makes US #33 and UK #99.

"After the critically acclaimed, but commercially ignored "Madness, Money & Music," Sheena Easton decided to update her sound and image (see album cover) with 1983's "Best Kept Secret." Intent on pursuing dance music, she dumped long-time producer Christopher Neil in favor of Greg Mathieson (Donna Summer, Olivia Newton-John). The move worked surprisingly well, as first single "Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair)" made the Top 10 on both the pop and dance charts, and the album climbed to number 33 on the Billboard album chart. The rest of the set basically follows the same blueprint as "Telefone," upbeat dance tunes heavy on the synthesizers. There are two notable exceptions, however. As with most of Easton's albums, the stand-out tracks are the ballads. Included here are the exquisite "Almost Over You," (which also made the Top 40) and a superb cover of Dusty Springfield's "Just One Smile." The only misstep seems to have been the choice of "Devil In A Fast Car" as the third single over more radio-friendly cuts like "(She's In Love) With Her Radio," and "Best Kept Man." As a bonus, the reissue CD also includes Sheena's 1982 Top 10 duet with Kenny Rogers, "We've Got Tonight", which wasn't previously available on any of her albums. Definently one of Easton's best. Thanks, One Way Records!"

"This has to be one of Sheenas best albums.Less filler and more great tunes."

"sheenas voice and attitude make this an 80"s treasure. every track has a killer vocal and lyric."
