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!

Take Me To God (Deluxe Edition)
Bass player, dub fan, author, documentary maker, world music explorer, modal jazz obsessive, old punk: the man born John Wardle is all these things and more.

Jah Wobble made his name after founding PiL with John Lydon in 1978. The first line-up of The Invaders Of The Heart emerged in 1983 after Wobble was inspired by music from around the globe. During the late 80s and 1990s, Wobble enjoyed a creative and commercial peak, recording for Oval and Island Records.

In the late 1990s, he began a prolific new chapter with his own label 30 Hertz, a period which is still creating such peaks as the acclaimed Chinese Dub album (2008).

Issued by Island Records in 1994, Take Me To God is Jah Wobble’s most commercially successful LP to date, peaking at No. 13 and yielding the hits Becoming More Like God and The Sun Does Rise . Take Me To God was inspired by myriad styles of world music, pre-empting an explosion of interest in the genre.
Among the many guests included Baaba Maal, The Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan, Natacha Atlas, Gavin Friday and reggae star Chaka Demus.

Press:-

"Driven along by Robert Johnson's funky drumming, a bunch of bobbling basslines, some joyously riffing horns and a succession of hooky chants dressed up as chorus, the idea was to put feet on dancefloors and a smile or two on some faces. Their best stuff - That's The Way I Like It, Get Down Tonight, I Get Lifted, and Boogie Shoes are all on this 1975 album". 3/5* (Chris Wells / Echoes - August 2012)
