This 1996 reissue coincides with the reemergence from a decade of inactivity of one of the most successful female soul vocal groups of all time. Key to the Emotions' huge appeal has been their unique family harmony style, a rich, high-end blend that is as sweet and fluffy as cotton candy without being saccharine, simultaneously evoking the innocence of youth and the sensuality of womanhood. Contained in this CD pairing of the Chicago trio's first two albums, from 1969 and 1971 respectively, are the hits "So I Can Love You," "The Best Part of a Love Affair," and "Show Me How" (all bearing the distinctive stamp of producers Isaac Hayes and David Porter), along with such treasures as the blues-drenched "Somebody Wants What I Got" and the decidedly funky "Blind Alley" (sampled years later by Big Daddy Kane and most recently by Mariah Carey in her smash #1 record "Dream Lover").
Wanda, Sheila, and Jeanette Hutchinson, Theresa Davis
