In this Blues and Soul chart from August 1977 I included top tracks from both the BBC Radio London and Radio 1 programmes.
The Emotions are number one with Best Of My Love and Flowers. Both tracks powered by EWF production and writing skills as the Emotions (sisters Wanda,Sheila and Pamela Hutchinson) had signed to Maurice Whites Kalimba Production company.
They joined Kalimba when the mighty Stax label folded and like Maurice came from Chicago.
The female vocals on EWF Boogie Wonderland are The Emotions and their hit Best Of My Love featured in legal action involving Mariah Carey. Writer Maurice White said her 1991 hit Emotions had sampled the song without permission. The issue was settled out of court.
Lenny Williams, Jean Carn, Patrice Rushen, Isley Brothers, Whispers, Marlena Shaw and the fabulous Hollywood track from Rufus and Chaka Khan a chart to be proud of.
