Album Review

The Whispers had scored a couple Top Ten hits prior to his album, but most of their songs, in spite of their quality, floundered in the latter half of the Top 100. However, Headlights houses two singles that graced the Billboard R&B Top Ten and Top 20. "(Let's Go) All the Way" was the first release. With a modest mid-tempo groove paced by an uncanny bass rhythm and a sprightly horn section, Walter Scott and Wallace "Scotty" Scott inflict their wholesome vocal appeal which is enhanced by the group's harmonious background vocals.

It tipped in at number 13 on the charts after 22 weeks. "(You're A) Very Special Part of My Life" was never a release but a beautiful number it is.

The title track is a funky selection, as is "The Planets of Life."

In 1969, the quintet climbed the soul charts for the first time with "The Time Has Come" on Soul Clock, and they cracked the R&B Top Ten the next year with "Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong." They've...
