Shalamar's debut album Uptown Festival is a dated set of shamelessly pandering disco that became a hit on the basis of the title track, a clever medley of old Motown hits. Uptown Festival" - and its less-successful followup, a cover of Smokey Robinson's "Ooh Baby Baby" - were hits simply because they grafted a familiar melody to a disco beat, not because they represented any innovation. The remainder of Uptown Festival suffers from a similar fate.

Using session singers to get the album out quickly, Festival is a naked cash grab posing as a fully-formed concept. Save for the title track-a medley of familiar Motown standards laid over a disco beat-the record is completely forgettable unless used as a marketing case study and doesn’t have a ton of replayability. However, just because the album wasn’t good doesn’t mean that album wasn’t successful.
