By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
To help you make up your mind to buy this set the photo on Amazon is a bit too small to read the track listings so I've done it fo you.

Still an amazingly cheap set with the neat cardboard sleeves which I actally like. For the price of one CD you get 5,
If you spot any mistakes just add a comment and I will rectify it Toot Sweet

When I realised I only owned one "best of Sister Sledge" album, which I had bought at the age of 13 (15 years ago!), I decided that when I saw it for twenty dollars, I just had to get it. I wasn't sure what to expect with the earlier stuff. I knew the classics: "We Are Family", "He's The Greatest Dancer" etc, but were they good before that? The answer is: mostly yes! So lets start off with the first album "Circle Of Love", released in 1975. The one hit off this is "Love Don't You Go Through No Changes On Me" which is as glorious a mid seventies soul record if ever there was one. Much of this album was written by renowned soul artist Gwen Guthrie. Other songs that connected with me was the opener "Circle Of Love (Caught In The Middle)" which kind of sounds like the Supremes, and "Protect Our Love" I quite like, again, it has that throwback late 60s sound, with a bit of mid seventies thrown in to keep it current. "Give In To Love" is a dirgy ballad, and most of their ballads do little for me, but this one is so syrupy that I do like it quite a lot, full of odd vocal changes and sweeping strings...you'll either love it or hate it.

"Together" was released in 1977 and in my opinion is a much stronger album. "My Favourite Song" is, er, my favourite song from this album, it's so happy and upbeat I can't help but feel optimistic and I had a boogie to it this morning. I also noticed it is written by Michael Kunze, one of the writers of Silver Convention's music, which is brilliant disco music. When dance music was happy..."As" is another song that I like, good melody to it. "Funky Family" is also quite good and lives up to the title, sort of a precursor to their massive family themed song a couple of years later...

4.0 out of 5 stars More Than Just A Chic Thing 15 July 2012
By pjr VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Sister Sledge are one of those groups whose entire career is defined by a couple of songs. For most that's quite enough but a recording career that lasted over a decade this collection shows that on 5 their earliest 5 albums there was quite a lot more to them than just the hits.

The first album "Circle Of Love" made quite an impact, especially in the UK where the single "Love Don't Go Through No Changes On Me" was a cult club classic. Recorded in 1975 it's very much of its time and filled with kind of songs which took Soul music on the route to disco. This is a very soulful album and there's plenty to enjoy here and it's probably one of the main attractions of the box set. "Protect Our Love" sounds like a speeded up "Love Don't..." as does the title track. The album has a hint of popular Philly International & Salsoul labels (which were the sounds of the time) "Pain Reliever" sounding like something the Salsoul Orchestra could have turned out, it's a worthwhile record. Considering this has been impossible to find on CD previously it's good to discover its qualities.

The second offering came 2 years later and could be seen as indicative of the problems Atlantic (associated mainly with soul music) was having adjusting to disco. The writers here include the writer of hits for Silver Convention but the results are, at best, a little lacklustre. Opener "Blockbuster Boy" is pleasant enough piece of disco and "Your My Favourite Song" follows a similar vein later on the album but they don't sound anything special. The rest of the album is a mixture of funk (which really doesn't suit their voices at all) two Stevie Wonder covers neither of which work, and some pleasantly forgettable ballads.
