Ya know I have listened to Cissy Houston since I was a child her stuff with the Sweets was good!But I thought her stuff in the 70's Especially BE MY BABY,ANY GUY,DARLING TAKE ME BACK,DOWN IN THE BOONEDOCKS,and quite a few other tracks she recorded should have been hits what do you guys think?I know Cissy wasn't part of the Motown Sound but I think she is very underatted and has never really received her just do for her spectacular voice she posesses.Shawn

Well Cissy has always been one of my top 5. Cant get enough of Think It Over -and even Jennifer Holidays's version couldnt beat Cissy's. Love her on Aint No Way.

I also LOVE Cissy singing "Let Me Be Lonely",Everyday Is A Holliday","Fire",Doesn't Only Happen At Night","You Were Always On My Mind","Make It Easy On Yourself" and just abot everything she sings !I wish I could find a whole concert by her especially the Sweet Inspirations reunion concert that was partly in the Documentary done on Cissy.Shawn

Now you are talking.
My mate used to play me a Japanese CD duet album of Cissy with Chuck Jackson....all I will say is that they dont make 'em like that anymore

Does everyone know Cissy won 2 grammys not too long ago?The Sweets have a current dance hit with someone--I assume it Estelle, Sylvia and Myrna only.
