The album was in fact recorded by session singers. It peaked at 22 on the US R&B chart and 48 on the Billboard Albums chart. The title track, Uptown Festival, was recorded at Ike & Tina Turner's Bolic Sound studio. It's a medley of ten Motown classics sung over a 1970s disco beat.

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.
