Album Review

This spotlights only the second incarnation of Peaches & Herb, as the disco and early urban contemporary hitmakers of the late '70s and early '80s, not the soul duo of the late '60s. In fact this is virtually identical to the 1996 Polydor CD simply titled The Best of Peaches & Herb, though that disc had four tracks not on this one, and 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Peaches & Herb does contain one song not on the earlier comp, "We're Still Together" (which scraped the very bottom of the charts in 1977, and was written and co-produced by Van McCoy). It's all a bit baffling to the business outsider why exactly a nearly identical anthology should be issued only five years or so later, marking in fact a slight downgrade from the earlier edition. There's not all that much difference, though, and ultimately it does have what most fans would want to hear on a best-of covering this time period, including ten chart hits. And it's still not-too-exciting period R&B, from out-and-out disco ("Shake Your Groove Thing," "Freeway," "We've Got Love") to lush ballads ("Reunited," "I Pledge My Love").

Shake your groove thing BEST SONG EVER

I'm not familiar with the other songs on the album, but "Shake" is an absolutely fantastic song. The beats, rythims and bass create powerful feelings that I've never experienced before. Amazing

reminds me about the early 80' rollerskating rinks and strobe lights...

Though soul/pop Peaches and Herb was billed as a duo, their group member rotation is more similar to a group's. The original Peaches, Francine Hurd Barker, a Washington, D.C., native, earned the childhood nickname "Peaches" because of her genteel manner. She sang in neighborhood groups and in her teens she became the lead singer for a group named the Keynotes. Starting her own group, the Darlettes, they auditioned for and were signed to D.C.-area label Date Records, where their name was changed to...
