When Columbia Records released Cheryl Lynn's second album, In Love, in 1979, the Los Angeles native had a lot to live up to. Her 1978 smash Got to Be Real had become one of the definitive anthems of the Disco Era, reaching #1 on Billboard s R&B singles chart and #12 on Billboard s pop singles chart. On top of that, Star Love (another single from Lynn's self-titled debut album of 1978) was a #16 R&B hit in Billboard. So Columbia had high hopes for In Love. The album was a huge success and made it to #5 on Billboard's R&B albums chart and sold more than one million copies in the United States alone.

An early-'80s trio, Fredi Grace & Rhinestone never relinquished material of any great consequence, but their members showed considerable musicianship on this debut effort. Grace is particularly engaging on the single "Help (Save This Frantic Heart of Mine)" and the driving "Go, Get on Your Mark," while Keith "Keecho" Rawls plays Fender Rhodes, piano, and synthesizer bass. Ros Sweeper adds fine harmonies throughout the set. Notably, Peabo Bryson wrote, produced, and drummed on the quiet storm entry "Tell Me What's on Your Mind." It's an emotive number more soulful than many of Bryson's own commercially successful recordings.
