Continuing our Philadelphia International re-issue programme. The Jones Girls are unquestionably one of the most beloved sister acts in the history of Black American music. The three sisters have always been regarded as R&B royalty and their recordings made for Gamble & Huff’s Philadelphia International imprint, are cherished in a way that many bigger hits and all-time classics could never be.
This mid-price 2-on-1 release contains Shirley, Brenda and Valorie’s first two albums for PIR, from 1979 and 1980. With production from Gamble and Huff, and Dexter Wansel, these chart albums feature the hit tracks “This Feeling’s Killing Me”, perhaps their best-known track although never a single, plus the singles “You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else” and “I Just Love The Man”. Also featured is the bonus track “Eternally”, a non-album b-side.
