Product description

Product Description

THE WEATHER GIRLS were Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes. The duo started out in the gospel group NOW (News of the World) before becoming backup singers with Sylvester in the late seventies. They were then named TWO TONS OF FUN and had a run of Disco hits on the Fantasy label. The group then signed with Columbia Records and changed their name to The Weather Girls in 1982. The newly named duo s first single IT'S RAINING MEN was quickly a massive club hit in the US, topping the Dance/Disco chart in 1982. Their debut album SUCCESS featured the hit single and was a US chart hit. Despite only being a minor pop hit at home, IT S RAINING MEN became an international hit and eventually made number 2 in the UK in 1984. Since then it has become a massive anthem. SUCCESS also featured the hit title track and I M GONNA WASH THAT MAN RIGHT OUTA MY HAIR which were also successful dance singles. The album demonstrated how strong the women's voices were and exploited their gospel roots.

"Success" is a great album, but the 2013 reissue from Cherry Pop Records is disappointing. As other reviewers have pointed out, the remastering isn't very good. You can hear clicks on many of the album tracks, and some of the bonus tracks seem to be sourced from vinyl.

I know a lot of work goes into making these reissues possible, and that sometimes, original master tapes can't be found. That's understandable. However, removing clicks and pops is an easy thing to do, so there's no excuse to release a classic album without cleaning it up a little.

It's a shame because many of the Cherry Pop reissues sound great. This just isn't one of them. I expect more from a reissue marketed as "digitally remastered", that's all.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Aug. 2007
Format: Audio CD
This 1983 album was produced by Paul Jabara. It contains two massive Hi-NRG hits in the form of It's Raining Men and I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair.

The album opens with the vibrant track Success where the two contrasting voices of the girls come over most distinctly. Hungry For Love is a funky mid-tempo song, whilst Dear Santa starts out as a slow Christmas ballad with soulful vocals before the fast Hi-NRG beat kicks in.

Hope is an uplifting song with some impressive vocals. The real appeal of the album lies however in the closing tracks It's Raining Men, a camp classic with a pulsating beat and I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair, a festive number with a catchy tune and foot tapping rhythms. Fans of 1980s dance music will love this album.
