The early days of disco saw the birth of a classic song turned into a classic again with the magic touch of disco sound. Even the cover of their debut LP was an enigma not showing the faces of the group members. "Frenesi" and "Peanut Vendor" completed the first side of the record which had a jazzy fair. The B side has "Fascination","Dance with me" and "Pinball" Which although short in lenght were more danceable. "Arabian Nights" portrayed their classic "Best Disco in Town", the rest of the songs were good but never topped the charts. The cover art pictured the group members wearing exotic "carnival" costumes. Cassandra Ann Wooten, Gwendolyn Oliver and Teri Mason Jacks were credited as the group voices. "Life is music" followed in 1977 with a glamo- rous picture cover and a centerfold where the trio were wearing furs. "Long Distance Romance", "Lady luck" and "Liberty" were great songs but again didn't top the charts. By the end of the summer "African Queens" was released. Again the art cover was very exquisite portraying the trio as different African Queens. Only "Quiet Village" topped the charts (not included here). "Summer Dance" was a very danceable tune as well as "Voodoo", unfortunately only the 7" mix of the first one is included. Disco was hot on the trails by 1978: "American Generation" was released with a new line up. The sound was more aggressive as showed in "I feel Disco Good" and of course the title hit. This was their final release on Marlin/TK label. The release of "Bad Reputation" with Casablanca records portraying the new group dressed in leather and surrounded by bodybuilders on the cover was simply hot. The sound was very High Energy: "Bad reputation" "Put your feet to the beat", It's a man's world" and "Where are the men" really will make you put your feet to the beat. By 1980's the group was fading away. They were singing ballads and mellow songs. With RCA records "I'll do my best" and "All night, all right" are presented here. Will be great to see releases of the "disco good" days of this group.
