Re: very gifted sisters (Brian)
These ladies were signed by Gamble and Huff after seeing them working as backing vocalists for Diana Ross, they did a lot of sessions with groups such as Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes, the O'jays before they released their first album. If you like stuff about session men the documentary Standing in the Shadow of Motown is superb, its about the Funk Brothers the house band at Motown who were never acknowledged on the releases till the early 1970s but these gentlemen played on more number ones the the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles combined. Also look for the Wrecking Crew Documentary about the West Coast session guys in the USA, again a very good watch. They were both on YouTube but I am not sure if they are still on there. There's some great session guys out there and Big Jim Sullivan was one of the best
