Editors’ Notes

From 1974 to 1976, the Ohio Players were hotter than a leather jumpsuit in July. Three albums, Skin Tight, Fire, and their 1975 coup de grace Honey proved that few bands could bring da funk the way these Dayton, Ohio bad boys could. Their mad-skill melding of jazz chords, quiet-storm soul, and stupefying funk on hits like "Fopp," "Honey," and "Sweet Sticky Thing" made Honey a must-have R&B album in the mid-'70s. In their prime, the Ohio Players made urban airwaves sizzle, but this album sounds just as good today.

Customer Reviews

Nice cd, just MYTH FALSE

The Ohio Players worked magic here. The songs honey, Alone and Ain't Givin up No Ground are fantastic proof that The Ohio Players make great music. By the way, the reason there's a scream in there is because IT IS A ROLLERCOASTER. It's a rollercoaster, so one of the bandmembers let out an inhale screech. Get your facts right, it is false. Nonetheless, the CD is exceptional. Ohio Players worked well on this CD: 4/5 stars.

creepy, but good

If you listen into 2 minutes and 32 seconds of the song "Love Rollercoaster", you can hear a faint scream in the backgorund. Rumor has it that the model for the cover stormed into the recording studio and threatend to sue to band due to burns she recived when the acrilic goop burned her skin. The song was being recorded at the time and the manager stabbed the model to death.

Here is a quote from one of the members, Jimmy Williams on the scream, "There is a part in the song where there's a breakdown. It's guitars and it's right before the second verse and Billy Beck does one of those inhaling-type screeches like Minnie Ripperton did to reach her high note or Mariah Carey does to go octaves above. The DJ made this crack and it swept the country. People were asking us, 'Did you kill this chick in the studio?' The band took a vow of silence because that makes you sell more records."

With their slinky, horn-powered grooves, impeccable musicianship, and eye-popping album covers, the Ohio Players were among the top funk bands of the mid-'70s. Emerging from the musical hotbed of Dayton in 1959, the group was originally dubbed the Ohio Untouchables, and initially comprised singer/guitarist Robert Ward, bassist Marshall "Rock" Jones, saxophonist/guitarist Clarence "Satch" Satchell, drummer Cornelius Johnson, and trumpeter/trombonist Ralph "Pee Wee" Middlebrooks. In late 1961, a relative...
