Formed in Philadelphia, and rising up with the Philadelphia Sound of the 1970’s, The Three Degrees started their career in 1963.. This is the second studio album and the first on Philadelphia International Records, the label of Gamble and Huff (and Thom Bell). Released in 1973, this features the group with the lineup that brought them their biggest hits. This lineup, which formed from 1967- 1976, featured original member Fayette Pinkney along with Valerie Holiday, and Shelia Ferguson. Consequently, a version led by Holiday still performs today.
Anyway, back to the record, it was among one of their most successful and spawned four singles; “Dirty Ol’ Man”, “I Didn’t Know”, “Year of Decision” and ” When Will I See You Again”, which went to #2 in the US and #1 in the UK.
For a sample, I decided to go with “Can’t You See What You Are Doing To Me”.
Pretty good album. Satisfactory.
