Best known for their work with Chic in the late '70s, siblings Debbie, Kim, Joni, and Kathy Sledge -- collectively Sister Sledge -- reached the height of their popularity during the disco era but had been recording since the early '70s and were still active in the late '90s.

Editorial Reviews

Sister Sledge were an R&B vocal group from Philadelphia consisting of sisters Debra, Joni, Kim & Kathy Sledge. They issued numerous albums throughout the1970's & 1980's. They are best known for their big hit "We Are Family". Even though that album has been issued on CD, most of their other albums have not. We now rectify that situation with the release of seven of their albums, all but one making their worldwide CD debuts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves! April 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The year is 1982 and after being produced by Chic then Narada Michael Walden the Sledge's decide to give a stab at the production themselves. The result is this very soulful album that,for the date is very strong based in late 70's funk-pop and even makes a go of the gestating hip-hop movement with the super funky "Super Bad Sisters" featuring the sisters rapping very much in the Sugarhill style!"My Guy" is pleasant enough but doesn't add much that Mary Wells didn't to the original. Much more unique are the original and somewhat experimental funk grooves of "Lighttfootin'","Get You In Our Love" and "Il Macquillage Lady",all of which showcase the Sisters desire to make a detour from their patented disco-pop sound that made them stars and show they too could give up the funk with the best of them. There are a few great ballads here too,one of which is the midtempo "Grandma",very much in their tradition of celebrating family and how sometimes there is no school like the old school."Everybody's Friend" is very reflective and features the creamy voiced Debbie Sledge singing lead. The album closes with the peppy "Jackie's Theme:There's No Stopping Us",a great possible hit-that-never-was. This album will make you wonder why the Sledge's didn't produce themselves more often;they'd obviously absorbed everything they'd seen Nile Rodgers and Narada do in the past and found a style the they could work well with. This tends to be one of their more forgotton albums but it showed they did have a lot more talent then just their voices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Super Bad Indeed! September 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I like this album. I bought it when it first came out way back in '82. Sounds sort of dated now, but jams like "Lightfootin", "Il Macquiage Lady", "Get You Into Our Love" and "There's No Stopping Us" are upbeat and danceable and could have been good singles back in the day, given a chance. It's a shame they had to score a hit with a Motown cover, and a near hit with a safe ballad "All The Man I Need". Lot's of good stuff to be found here.
