Notes

Consistent selections from this Los Angeles-based trio led primarily by Jimmy Varner's vigorous, gutsy vocals. This album features the hit single "The Feeling I Get." Elegantly introduced by a piano, Varner and Lynn Roderick share lead on this emotional ballad that is reminiscent of the classic songs Ashford & Simpson penned for Motown during its heyday. However, the single only managed to peak at a disappointing #48 on the Billboard R&B charts after an ample 12 weeks on the charts. The group's rendition of "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing," also penned by Ashford & Simpson, has a soulful feel and swinging beat unlike the original, which is more mainstream.
