Review by Søren Jensen http://rateyourmusic.com

Penny McLean's debut album followed hot on the heels of Silver Convention's rise to fame with hits such as Save Me and Fly, Robin, Fly / Tiger Baby. "Lady Bump" was the big hit - and absolutely irresistible mid-70s disco. Pure 5 stars! The follow-up singles "1-2-3-4 Fire!" and "Devil Eyes" obviously built on the same formula and are also very catchy songs - however, they didn't fare as well. In short, all the other songs - including a disco cover version of "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" (the second single in the US) - are fun and fresh.
Some trivia:

1. The original Jupiter LP comes with a poster of Penny.
2. The backing vocals were done by the real vocalists of Silver Convention's first album, Gitta Walther, Betsy Allen, Lucy O'Neal and Roberta Kelly. The (in)famous scream on "Lady Bump" was done by Gitta aka Jackie Robinson). Penny, however, screamed live on several TV-appearances.
3. Penny and her Silver Convention colleagues Ramona Wulf and Linda G. Thompson didn't sing on the first Silver Convention album - although they promoted the singles on TV. Jupiter Records therefore issued solo singles by each of the girls to prove they could sing. Penny by far got the best one - neither Ramona's cover of Save The Last Dance For Me nor Linda's Ooh What A Night could match Penny's "Lady Bump" in popularity.
