Released at the peak of disco fever in 1979, We’re Still Together is a product of its era. Willie Mitchell’s production is slick and overpowering, with dense string arrangements and vocal choruses that flatten everything around them. Although the material, including a cover of Aretha Franklin’s “Baby Baby Baby,” is strong and Wright is in fine voice throughout, it’s tough to consider We’re Still Together anything more than an ambitious failure.
