On the strength of #1 hit "You Light Up My Life," one would think that for
her 1978 follow-up Midstream Debby Boone would have been immediately
able to exert artistic control but the process was gradual. Debby discovered
that "Light" writer/ producer Joe Brooks was contractually guaranteed to participate in her sophomore solo album. However, Debby was ready to expand her musical range into a more mature, sophisticated direction.
Accordingly, halfway through the sessions, Debby changed producers
from Joe Brooks to Brooks Arthur (which prompted the album's title, changing from one "Brooks" to another "Midstream" - get it?). Though Midstream failed to match the gargantuan success of You Light Up My Life, it demonstrated that Debby had grown up by spotlighting such great performances as "God Knows" (a country/adult contemporary hit) and "I'd Rather Leave While I'm in Love."
Also including the pop/AC charter "California," Midstream remains a fan
favorite and a fine record in its own right. Fortunately, Brooks Arthur was
firmly behind the controls for Debby's next record, her self-titled outing from
1979. With a crack band behind her, and unerring choice of material, like the
Miracles flipside "Choosey Beggar" and the beautiful "I'd Rather Be Alone,"
Debby Boone is probably the most overlooked and important album in her
early pop career canon; though it does include two hit country singles, "My
Heart Has a Mind of Its Own" and "Breakin' in a Brand New Broken Heart," lack
of promotion doomed its sales prospects even as her artistry reached new
heights. A pair of CD debuts for both original albums on this 23-track twofer!
