You know there are times when you here a song or a voice and the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, well this has happened to me on a few occasions I can remember the first and the second times this has happened the first I will mention another time, but the first time was when I was trying to complete my homework( this is sometime back) it was late as I recall and TONY PRINCE of radio Luxemburg was counting down the top 30 r&b soul chart, when this sweet song reached out and grabbed me .The song was entitled NIGHTS OVER EGYPT the year 1981 to this day I cant describe how this song made feel I just loved it ,I guess it wasn’t just the song in a much as the wonderful voices that where singing on it .Ever since then THE JONES GIRLS BRENDA ,VALORIE,&SHIRLEY had me hooked. It was hard to believe that they had been around performing for as long as they did before the big break came approx 10years.Maybe this is why they where so good they had honed there craft working with the likes of LOU RAWLS ,TEDDY PENDEGRAS and more but there upbringing started in church and let me tell you, here is where real talent always seems to come from (GO FIGURE),but it would be working as back up singers to the legendary DIANA ROSS that this trio would get noticed (by k gamble & g huff ) and release what only could be described as some the most cherished songs of the 70,s & 80,S .There first album was releases and the single You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else was what we use to call a smash. The songs and kept coming and there more we heard the more we liked song such as We're A Melody .Gamble and huff were the big hit makers of the day and had established a sound that so much suited this beautiful trio. The second & third albums At Peace With Woman & Get As Much Love As You Can yielded two of my favourites along with Children of the night they are Get as much loving as you can and the club killer song NIGHTS OVER EGYPT. Later the girls would leave PIR for RCA records but they wouldn’t get the same success as they did with there earlier music .On Target (1983) did have a few song that I did however like and you might want to check these out WIN U BACK ,KNOCKIN and my favourite CURIOUS, Keep It coming(1984) contained the hit title of the set , KEEP IT COMING. After these albums two Shirley would branch out on her own to release a stunning set Do you get enough lovin. It would prove to be a master stroke of an album ,The girls reunited in the 1992 to release Coming back much to my delight my girls as I called them where back and every thing in the world was great . After this they would disappear mainly to raise there children and enjoy family life, yet this young brother was eager for more hey occasionally come to Europe and would get my first chance to see them only I fell seriously ill and could not attend .Looking back that for me is still a bitter pill as I never did get o see them live, what a treat that would have been .Sadly VALORIE JONES died 2nd DEC 2001 I still play there music all over house and I still feel they never truly got what they deserved and that was for the world to wake up to what true harmony is, when you here them sing many of today’s artist could still learn a thing or two from them. As I said at the beginning its rare that a song makes the hairs stand up on my neck or a voice yet these three managed to do that to me several times over the years .SO TO BRENDA VALORIE and SHIRLEY I would like to say a big thank you.
