The Whispers: Greatest Hits
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Top Customer Reviews
Highlights include "(Olivia) Lost and Turned Out," a live concert favorite (and possibly the smoothest vocals ever on a song about prostitution), "And The Beat Goes On," a 1980 disco hit sampled by rapper Will Smith in his hit "Miami," the aforementioned "Beat," and the Gary Taylor-penned "Just Gets Better With Time."
Some of the tracks are a little dated ("Contageous," "One For the Money") but all possess the careful craftsmanship and understated but soulful vocals that have made The Whispers popular over the years. If you're a casual fan, buy this without hesitation. If you're a serious fan, this is a good place to start.
Gotta admit "And the Beat Goes On" is one of the all-time best dance songs and I was glad they put the long version on here.
"Rock Steady" and "It's a Love Thing" are also epic grooves. I also enjoyed the slow ballads, particularly "Lady."
Just a great collection.

First let me say I love The Whispers. The CD is in my disc changer. Just saw the group in concert on Saturday. I play the CD just about everyday.
