Songs of Babyface
It takes an album like "Songs of Babyface" to remind many listeners what a valuable soul institution The Whispers are. The idea behind any 'songbook' collection is to showcase a particular songwriter, as well as the skills of the interpretive artist. Choosing the songs of Babyface, one of the most successful and respected composers of contemporary urban soul, was a savvy move for The Whispers, since it proves that the group is hip enough to know what's what in the urban universe. By focusing on Babyface's songs, the album reveals that he's one of the great soul songwriters of his time, and The Whispers are one of the greatest R&B Groups of their time. This CD features terrific versions of 'You're Making Me High,' 'Two Occasions,' 'For the Cool In You,' 'Whip Appeal,' 'As Soon As I Get Home,' 'My, My, MY' and 'Exhale (Shoop Shoop).
