THE EMOTIONS - I CAN'T STAND NO MORE HEART ACHES


I'm a lover of harmony singing to the highest degree, and the Hutchinson sisters (Sheila, Wanda and Jeanette) outta Chicago consistently laid out some of the most divine (and in this case, serious stomp and ass kicking) harmonies ever cut to wax. There is simply NOTHING like the harmony blend of blood relations, and here, on their debut disc as the Emotions, the Hutchinson's completely blow it into the stratosphere.

And the real kicker? These young ladies were between 14-16 years old when they cut this record. Add to that whoever the musicians are playing on this track- these people put in a HEROIC performance.

Already, at this tender age they were BETTER than the majority of "singers" in this day and age that rely on autotune and cut 'n paste to put together a "performance".

Sometimes I think about why I get so excited about these records; the answer is simple. It's the REAL THING. Now pardon me while I listen to this jam for the 8th time in a row this morning.

from 1967...
