REVIEWS
Average points: 4.67 (Reviews: 30)
*****
Feiner Funk, leider wurde disco music in den USA von 1980-1983 kaum am Radio gespielt (Übersättigung nach der Saturday Night-Ära und vor Billie Jean), daher nur # 28.
*****
▓ Nu ik hem toch wéér net voorbij hoor komen, denk ik toch dat de plaat 5 sterren waard is !!! Deze plaat uit februari 1981 is héél goed !!! Was ook niet voor niets een groot succes voor deze Amerikaanse formatie in Holland !!! (NL Top 40: 10 wk / # 5) !!!

Ihrer 2. Hit in NL und knapp nicht in die Top 10 ( # 11) ende Winter 1981.... klasse Disco !
*****
Funk, wie ich ihn damals besonders mochte. Zündet gut.
******
Cool!
***
...weniger...
****
Vor 20 Jahren hätte ich dieser sehr tanzbaren Nummer mit Sicherheit die volle Punktzahl gegeben. Meine Begeisterung hat inzwischen etwas nachgelassen. Finde den Song zwar immer noch ziemlich gut, aber für 5* reicht's knapp nicht.
*****
Titel von der 1980er LP Imagination,schöner Uptemposoul
*****
disco-funk anfang 80er der in europa von dieser combo etwas bekannt war. noch knappe 5.

eingängig (aber nicht mitreissend)
******
Klasse, um die uhrzeit aufzustehen es zu hören heisst schon was
*****
Guter dance stuff.
******
Ausgezeichneter Disco-Funk. Check out the bassline - wow!
*****
mag zeker een 5
****
Net zoals And the beat goes on, degelijke dansplaat.
****
ganz nett
*****
immer noch für eine 5 gut
****
Weer een gezellig hitje van de Whispers, dit keer hun laatste hit.
Ik vind het gezellig en leuk, maar niet zuper bijzonder.
****
Recht nett, sie klingen wie die schwarze Version der Bee Gees.
*****
Ja, stimmlich kommen hier und da schon die Bee Gees durch, ansonsten aber ein anderer Groove. Ziemlich lässige, coole Disco-Funk-Nummer, einen wichtigen Aspekt beim Erfolg hat southpaw dankenswerterweise schon erwähnt. Auch # 2 R&B und # 4 Disco.
*****
Muy buena.
****
nett servierter Discofunk-Titel – 4*…

im April 1981 3 Wochen auf #9 in UK gestanden…
***
Dafür habe ich nur ein beherztes "Naja" übrig.
*****
ja, das war halt meine Zeit und auch lange Zeit meine bevorzugte Musikrichtung

auch heute mag ich's sehr gern, wenn ein Song schön groovt, so wie hier - natürlich macht ein guter Groove allein noch keinen guten Song aus, aber dieser Song ist auch eingängig und mit dem gewissen Schuss Soul gewürzt, gefällt mir auch heute noch sehr gut!
****
Good song
******
Geiler funky Disco-Sound, kommt auch heute noch gut.
*****
Ik denk dat dit nummer het meest herkenbaar is van The Whispers
Prima
*****
Met dit nummer braken the Whispers pas goed door in Nederland. Wederom een keigoed intro (net zoals "and the beat goes on"). Daarna swingt dit nummer de pan uit. Klinkt nog steeds fris en fruitig.

Jammer dat deze groep, met genoeg hitpotentie, na dit nummer stil viel.
