Sister Sledge Biography
Best known for their work with Chic in the late '70s, siblings
Debbie, Kim, Joni, and Kathy Sledge -- collectively Sister Sledge --
reached the height of their popularity during the disco era but had
been recording since the early '70s and were still active in the late
'90s. The group was formed in Philadelphia in 1971, when the sisters'
ages ranged from 12 to 16, and they recorded their first single, Time
Will Tell, for the Philly-based Money Back label. (For the first few
years, the group called itself Sisters Sledge.) In 1972, Sister Sledge
signed with Atco and recorded its second single, Weatherman, which
was followed by the Jackson 5-like Mama Never Told Me in 1973.
Sister Sledge's first national hit came in 1974, when Love, Don't You
Go Through No Changes on Me reached number 31 on the R&B charts
and the Philadelphians recorded their debut album, Circle of Love.
Their second album, Together, was released in 1977 and contained the
number 61 R&B hit Blockbuster Boy. It wasn't until 1979, when
Chic leaders Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards produced We Are Family,
that Sister Sledge really exploded commercially. He's the Greatest
Dancer and We Are Family's title song both soared to number one on the
R&B charts, and the latter (a number two pop smash) was adopted as
a theme by the World Series-winning Pittsburgh Pirates.
Sister Sledge's next album, Love Somebody Today (1980), was also
produced by the Rodgers/Edwards team, and the single Got to Love
Somebody became a number six R&B hit. In 1981, Sister Sledge
switched producers and worked with Narada Michael Walden, who produced
1981's excellent All American Girls. The title song was a number three
R&B hit, and in 1982, Sister Sledge had a number 14 R&B hit
with a cover of Mary Wells' My Guy that appeared on The Sisters. But
after that, the foursome's popularity faded, and it never had another
Top 20 hit in the U.S. -- although 1985's Frankie (a number 32
R&B hit in the States) became a pop number one hit in England.
Sister Sledge left Atlantic for good in 1985, but its members kept busy
in the 1990s. Epic released Kathy's debut solo album, Heart, in 1992,
and 1997 found the sisters recording a risk-taking date, African Eyes,
arguably one of the finest albums they ever recorded. ~ Alex Henderson,
