Keni Burke: Burke's peerage

Paul Sexton, Record Mirror, 7 August 1982

HE'S BEEN around longer than you'd suppose and done things that might surprise you... in other words, he isn't the Burke you think he is. That's Keni Burke we're debating, whose single has been 'Risin' To The Top' in the disco charts. Mr Burke's single comes along as one of several warm cuts on his new RCA album, his second for the label and sequel to last year's You're The Best. That included 'Let Somebody Love You', which smuggled into our pop Top 60 for a fleeting moment last July.
