The Three Degrees were hugely successful
internationally throughout the seventies, particularly in the UK where they
enjoyed ten top forty hits including Year Of Decision, Take Good Care Of Yourself
and the anthemic ballad When Will I See You Again.
They are also the longest running girl group in
the world and MAYBE was their debut album in 1970, it put them on the musical
map after a couple of years without major success. After later hits on Philadelphia
International Records, Roulette put together an album of mainly unreleased
material – the result was SO MUCH LOVE, which is reproduced in it’s entirety on
the second disc in this deluxe reissue.
MAYBE, a cover of the Chantels,, was the Three Degrees
first hit reaching R&B #4 and Pop
#29. It was sampled by J Dilla in 2006. They achieved further R&B hits with I DO TAKE YOU, YOU’RE THE ONE, THERE’S
SO MUCH LOVE ALL AROUND ME and TRADE WINDS.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with 22 bonus tracks, MAYBE is a must for all Soul
and Pop fans out there!

The Three Degrees were hugely successful internationally throughout the
seventies, particularly in the UK where they enjoyed ten top forty hits
including Year Of Decision, Take Good Care Of Yourself and the anthemic ballad When Will I See You Again,
all on Philadelphia International Records. New Dimensions was the trio's first
album for Ariola Records where they were teamed with hotter than hot producer
Giorgio Moroder, who was riding high on his work with Donna Summer.
The top forty album spent thirteen weeks on the UK album chart in 1979
and spun off three hugely successful megahits in the shape of the discofied Giving Up, Giving In and The Runner as well as the top three
ballad Woman In Love.
