Comprised of the Hutchinson sisters (Sheila, Wanda and Jeanette), these Chicago ladies released over two dozen singles before crossing over in 1977 with the massive "Best of My Love" (including the excellent 1976 single "Flowers", which was a reprisal of the girl group sound through a 70's filter).

On this track, cut in Memphis with the Stax crew, we find the ladies lending those glorious harmonies to a track so lowdown and funky that it practically HURTS. In the best possible way. If the intro to this song doesn't get your blood pumping straight away, time to visit a new website!

Thanks for the post. I never knew where Big Daddy Kane sampled the beat for "Ain't No Half Steppin". Thanks! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4Bx7R0LKx0
