SoulMusic Records is very proud to present a 97-track, 6-CD box set of the eight full albums (plus bonus tracks and mixes) recorded for Atco, Cotillion and Atlantic by the internationally-renowned family group, Sister Sledge. Unquestionably one of the most successful female teams of the ‘70s and ‘80s, the Philly-born quartet are best known for enduring classics such as ‘He’s The Greatest Dancer’, the anthemic ‘We Are Family’, ‘Got To Love Somebody’, ‘All American Girls’ and the No. 1 UK hit ‘Frankie’: this deluxe box set is a scintillating showcase for the diverse range of R&B, dance and pop material the sisters (Kathy, Debbie, Joni and Kim) cut over a twelve-year period that brought them global fame.

• An outstanding, informative and extensive essay by renowned US writer Justin Kantor chronicles the group’s recording history with direct quotes primarily from Kathy Sledge and additional comments by producer Phil Hurtt, vocalist Alfa Anderson and musician Nick Mundy from interviews conducted specifically for the 10,000-word liner notes. This and the first class mastering by Nick Robbins and stellar artwork by Roger Williams make this a ‘must have’ collection for the group’s many fans worldwide, reflective – as their recording career progressed – of their aptitude as songwriters and burgeoning producers.

• Disc One comprises an expanded edition of the group’s 1975 debut Atco LP, CIRCLE OF LOVE (with production by Bert DeCoteaux & Tony Silvester), with nine bonus tracks (including the UK charted single, ‘Mama Never Told Me’) plus the first two tracks from the 1977 album, TOGETHER produced by Michael Kunze & Sylvester Levay.

• Disc Two features the remaining ten tracks from the TOGETHER album as well as the CD debut of the ‘A’ and ‘B’ side of a rare single (‘I’ve Seen Better Days’/‘Do It To The Max’), produced by Brad Shapiro and the first five tracks of the 1979 platinum-certified WE ARE FAMILY LP. Produced by Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards.

• Disc Three contains the remaining three tracks from WE ARE FAMILY and the entire follow-up LP, 1980’s Rodgers & Edwards’ -produced LOVE SOMEBODY TODAY and the first five tracks from 1981 set ALL AMERICAN GIRLS, produced by Narada Michael Walden in association with Sister Sledge, marking the group’s first production credits.

• Disc Four kicks off with the remaining five tracks from ALL AMERICAN GIRLS plus 1982’s THE SISTERS, the group’s sixth LP, which they arranged and produced (featuring covers of Mary Wells’ classic, ‘My Guy’ and ‘All The Man I Need’, later popularized by Whitney Houston); and the first three tracks from 1983’s BET CHA SAY THAT TO ALL THE GIRLS, produced by George Duke.

• Disc Five is composed of the remaining seven tracks from BET CHA SAY THAT TO ALL THE GIRLS plus the group’s final Atlantic LP, 1985’s WHEN THE BOYS MEET THE GIRLS, produced by Nile Rodgers.

• Disc Six – appropriately titled “Lost In Music” – includes ten different dance mixes of six of Sister Sledge’s most memorable hits ranging from Tom Moulton’s 1976 remix of ‘Mama Never Told Me’ to the 1985 Club Mix of ‘Frankie’, a fitting conclusion for this superb box set with a running time of over seven hours of wonderful music by this pioneering musical family.
