Remember The Time: The Three Degrees Let Their 'Star' Power Shine Bright

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Oh, they don't have girl groups like this anymore. The glamor. The poise. The synchronized hand motions. The matching dresses. All that and more is featured in this performance from The Three Degrees. The trio are most known for the saccharine sweet grocery store intercom staple 1974's "When Can I See You Again". Not that that's a bad thing, since the song is a Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff classic, but there is always more music to be found than just a singular smash hit. This is the case with "Starlight", a smoldering slow jam off of the ladies 1979 album, 3D. The album featured production by Giorgio Moroder, who we all know worked disco magic with Donna Summer, and he does the same for the Degrees. This music arrangement reminds me of something Earth, Wind and Fire could've produced (it's the horn arrangement in this that is very "Can't Hide Love"-esque), but it's the voices of these three ladies make it special. A lost classic that is found again.
