The man Tavares has to thank for its popularity in the disco world from 1976-1978 is Freddie Perren, who made sure that Sky High! had both soul appeal and disco appeal. And Perren did the same thing when he produced Tavares' fifth album, Love Storm. Also memorable is Tavares' cover of the Jim Weatherly song "The Going ups and the Coming Downs," which Gladys Knight & the Pips had recorded in 1974. Love Storm isn't among Tavares' essential albums, but it's a decent, satisfying effort that the group's hardcore fans will enjoy. 5. Watchin' the Woman's Movement.
