Liner Notes by David Nathan

Janice McClain is a native Philadelphian and from published articles it seems she was about 16 when she recorded “Smack Dab In The Middle”. Thanks to an artful remix by Larry Levan the RFC 12” single was one of the biggest club hits of 1979. Despite major club and radio exposure a follow-up single and album were not forthcoming.

After a four year hiatus Janice popped up on the Mon-Tab 12” single “Burnin’ Up” in 1984, but without a major label backing it the single came and went with barely a whimper. The good that came out of that was that she met producer Nick Martinelli. He was able to get her an album deal with MCA Records and produced her self-titled 1986 album for the label. The album spawned two 12” singles; “Let’s Spend The Night Together” and “Passion And Pain”.

Produced By Milt Tennant And Thom Page For Pagchten Productions
Executive Producers: Jheryl Busby Louil Silas Jr.
