Album Review

This 16-track, 69-minute disc surveys the Emotions' five-year, five-album stay on Columbia Records (and the custom label ARC), which was the group's most successful period, featuring the gold number one hit "Best of My Love" and the gold Top Ten hit "Boogie Wonderland" (on which the Emotions backed their mentors, Earth, Wind & Fire), both of which are heard here, along with four other songs that saw action on the pop charts. Surprisingly, the Emotions' five singles that only made the R&B charts are excluded in favor of album tracks. Unlike their earlier period at Stax, at Columbia the Emotions were essentially an adjunct to EW&F and its leader, Maurice White, and since EW&F featured tenor and falsetto vocals, the similarity was often heightened, especially on "Boogie Wonderland." Nevertheless, the sisters sang well over the horns and disco rhythms that characterized the pop/R&B music of the period.

The Emotions Are As Hot Now As They Were Then!

What a GROUP!!! These sisters can SING!!! I love this cd...and I have to tell you, The Emotions sound as good today as they did then. They even have a new song out called, "It's Too Late" by Nikkole feat. The Emotions. You can check it out here at iTunes as well! The Emotions are back and sounding as good as ever on this one. Nikkole's cd is very HOT!!! I also heard that Nikkole and The Emotions might be doing some concerts together. I would love to see that show. I saw some footage from both Nikkole and The Emotions on YouTube and it was OUTSTANDING!!!

Good, but where is the "Flowers" LP?

iTunes could make money off of listing, what many think is their best album, Flowers. I paid $50 for it on eBay and thought it was a bargain. I looked for 5 years to find it. They have two cuts from that recording "Flowers" & "Me for You" on this release. The Flowers album was produced and backed by EW&F who they shared talents with on Boogie Wonderland.

A trio of sisters with a strong gospel base, the Emotions (based in Chicago) were one of the leading female R&B acts of the '70s. Lead singer Sheila Hutchinson and her sisters Wanda and Jeanette were only teenagers when they crashed the soul charts in 1969 with the engaging "So I Can Love You," but they sang gospel as children and enjoyed secular fame locally before signing with Memphis-based Volt and working with producers Isaac Hayes and David Porter. When Stax folded in 1975, the group hooked...
