    The Whispers "The Definitive Collection 1972-1987" 4CD box set [Robinsongs] 6/18/21

    Robinsongs bring you a career-defining four CD set of one of the greatest Soul harmony groups The Whispers.

    This box set covers their Janus & Solar Records recording career spanning from 1972 through 1987.

    Includes all their biggest hits including their two R&B Number 1’s ‘And The Beat Goes On’ and ‘Rock Steady’, and their Top 10 R&B hits ‘One For The Money’, ‘Make It With You’, ‘[Let’s Go] All The Way’, ‘Lady’, ‘It’s A Love Thing’, ‘In The Raw’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Keep On Lovin’ Me’ and ‘Contagious’.

    The Whispers formed in 1963 in Watts, Los Angeles. The band consisted of twin brothers Walter & Wallace “Scotty” Scott, Gary Harmon, Marcus Hutson & Nicholas Caldwell. Gary Harmon left the band and was replaced by Leavell Degree in 1973.

    The Whispers also secured two Top 10 hits in the U.K. and charted another seven tracks that are all featured in this box set.

    In 2013 they were presented a lifetime achievement award for their 50 years in the industry, and in 2014 The Whispers were inducted into the official R&B Music Hall Of Fame.

    This package includes comprehensive sleeve notes by Lois Wilson.

    The Whispers were, to me, just ''another" nice singing group until ... I saw them live at a Superfest at Madison Square Garden, and they were terrific. 'And The Beat ...' to' it up, but the entire set was excellent.

    I was also very impressed when i caught their live show.
    Very professional guys who knew how to work an audience.

    Nice set. Wonder why "Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong" and "I Only Meant to Wet My Feet" were not included.

    "Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong" came out before 1972 [which is prior to the timeline the producers of this set chose to cover]. "I Only Meant To Wet My Feet could've made the cut [however, the A-side of that single, "You Fill My Life With Music', is on there].

    They are glaring omissions i agree.
    I guess they didn't have room to include them, but i would have included them by hook or by crook.

    I think you are probably correct with your assumption. Such a pity though.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Fortunately I purchased the 2 disc 30th Anniversary Anthology years ago and they're both on that set.
