Don't Go Looking For Love - Faith, Hope & Charity
I absolutely ADORE this incredibly catchy DISCO classic from Van McCoy and Faith, Hope & Charity!!!
Hey Tom, the above thread is one I started awhile back (I was blueskies back then). I assume you have both of their available CD's? I saw Faith, Hope and Charity open for the Supremes when Jean first took lead. They about brought the house down with "So Much Love". I'll never forget that show....FH&C AND The Supremes...how lucky can you get?!
Sadly, Diane has passed and Brenda (what a great singer) was in The Jamaica Girls briefly.
Albert was doing some stage work awhile ago. Can't seem to find much out on him. Sadly, Zulema has passed, too.

The group Brenda Hilliard was in back in the 80's. Can't find anything on her and don't know if she's still with us. Great singer.
Hi lakeside, thanks so much for the links! Faith, Hope & Charity are incredibly underrated in my opinion and there's never enough written about them!! I have downloaded the group's 1975 self-titled LP but not their Life Goes On one... yet.

Thanks lakeside! I did know she was in that group but that's all. Brenda also had one solo single out in 1983 entitled "Give Me All Of Your Love"... it's excellent!

I love 'Don't Go Looking For Love' as well. That whole album is a delight from start to finish.
There are a number of other albums by Faith. Hope and Charity long overdue for CD release which contain the original versions of songs later covered by other artists e.g Heavy Love (David Ruffin), Don't Pity Me (Thelma Houston), Come Back and Finish What You Started (Gladys Knight and the Pips).
Ozmo, I could not agree more! Their entire 1975 album is absolutely fantastic. I think "Don't Go Looking For Love" has to be my favourite track though!!! The LP of course includes the classic "To Each His Own" which is a very close second. And then there's the gems "Mellow Me" and "Let's Go To The Disco"... even the group's disco covers of "Rescue Me" and "Just One Look" are fantastic!
And I believe Faith, Hope & Charity have had but two of their five albums reissued on CD: Faith, Hope & Charity (1975) and Life Goes On (1976), and these were expanded editions. Unhelpfully, three of their five LPs were all called "Faith, Hope & Charity" (1970, 1975, 1978)!!!
I have to say... for some reason the single mix of "Don't Go Looking For Love" is noticably inferior to the one on the album... so enjoy this longer and better version!!
