Success - Weather Girls (The)

Success
THE WEATHER GIRLS were Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes. The duo started out in the gospel group NOW (News of the World) before becoming backup singers with Sylvester in the late seventies. They were then named TWO TONS OF FUN and had a run of Disco hits on the Fantasy label.
The group then signed with Columbia Records and changed their name to The Weather Girls in 1982. The newly named duo’s first single ‘IT'S RAINING MEN’ was quickly a massive club hit in the US, topping the Dance/Disco chart in 1982. Their debut album SUCCESS featured the hit single and was a US chart hit. Despite only being a minor pop hit at home, ‘IT’S RAINING MEN’ became an international hit and eventually made number 2 in the UK in 1984. Since then it has become a massive anthem.
SUCCESS also featured the hit title track and ‘I’M GONNA WASH THAT MAN RIGHT OUTA MY HAIR’ which were also successful dance singles. The album demonstrated how strong the women's voices were and exploited their gospel roots.
Cherry Pop is very proud to present SUCCESS expertly remastered and complete with liner notes and bonus tracks. It is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Disco and ‘80s Pop fans out there!

Mantle Pieces
Released on 22/03/10. The eighth in our series of Clifford T. Ward releases. Mantle Pieces was originally released on Charisma Records in 1973 and was Clifford's 3rd solo album. The album has not been available on CD for almost 20 years. The album contains one of his best loved singles Scullery. The CD includes two bonus tracks: the single Jayne (from Andromeda Spiral), + its b/side Maybe I'm Right. Clifford's reputation as a singer/songwriter lives on. His very active fan club "The Friends Of Clifford T. Ward" whose patron is Sir Tim Rice, support all attempts to promote the aims and works of Clifford T. Ward. Through their excellent website, they very much keep alive his extensive catalogue of work, spanning his career of 40 plus years. As a testament to his timeless genius, in June 2002, Clifford finished above The Beatles in a BBC Radio 2 poll on the best music released during the Queen's reign. Unfortunately Clifford wasn't around to witness this as he sadly died in December 2001 at the age of 57 Our Price: £9.95
