Sister Sledge is an American group formed in 1971 in Philadelphia and composed of sisters Debbie, Joni, Kathy and Kim Sledge. Quator who will have won the trifle of a hundred or so Awards.
Their first single "Time will tell" was released in 1971 but it was not until 1973 and the single "Mama never told me" to see them land their first success.
The first album "Circle of love" was released in 1975 and enjoyed great success in Europe. 1977 followed by the album "Together" which produced a single hit with "Blockbuster boy".
Everything accelerates when they meet in 1979 Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of the group Chic, who will produce for them the album "We are family" Album from which will be extracted the enormous "He's the greatest dancer" which becomes at this time there the biggest success of their career.
Followed by few other mega-hits namely "We are family". The band's notoriety exploded and the album was a real hit.
A year later in 1980, the album "Love somebody today" was released which produced the single of the same name. Album which will unfortunately be unable to compete with the previous one.
The hole was quickly overcome with the 1981 release of the album "All American Girls" which produced the mega-hit of the same name. Followed by few of another rather reggae influenced hit "He’s just a runaway".
New success in 1982 with the release of the album "The sisters" which saw the title "My guy" make a good run in the charts. Then it was the turn of the album "Bet chasay that to all the girls" in 1983 to experience equivalent success.
In 1984, it was the track "Lost in music", one of the very first tracks of the group, specially reworked for the occasion, which this time enjoyed the favor of the public.
The "Sisters" had a last major success in 1985 with the single "Frankie", taken from the album "When the boys meet the girls". Last success which will thus end the grandiose epic of this extraordinary family and which will have left in history certain Dance songs of anthology.

Dancing on the jagged edge 1985
1974 ... the Jackson 5 girls version. And my faith, that starts off very well all that. It's sparkling and Dance at will. It promises !
1976 ... we could have imagined a sequel just as Dance, the 70s oblige. Oh no, they immediately show their versatility. Complete the little ones !
1979 ... finished the extras, the girls move up a gear. And what speed ! First global hit, just that. They surely sign here one of the biggest dance hits of the 70s
1979 ... but that's without counting on this HUGE title which will remain as the biggest success of all their discography. All Dancefloor around the world still remember it !
1979 ... an exceptional year 1979 which definitively consecrates them as one of the very best groups of the decade and of the end of the twentieth period. Hats off girls !
1979 ... a 4th hit to end the year in style. 4th hit for 4 girls at the top of their possibilities. A group that will undeniably remain as one of the most talented 'family' groups
1980 ... little slump at the start of the 1980s. After an incredible 1979, it is normal for the girls to give up a little ballast ...
1981 ... but they shouldn't be underestimated. A resounding comeback with this HUGE title which once again sets all Dancefloor on fire. A title that doesn't remind you of something ...?
1999 ... and yes, Sex Bomb is actually a rearranged cover of "All american girls". One mega tube that calls for another. Like what, when the base is good ...
1981 ... a year of ups and downs. Of the 4 singles released, only 2 will come out with honors. Including this one ...
1982 ... a 'small' year with this title as the only notable landmark. We will be satisfied !
1983 ... the deceleration is accentuated from year to year. Girls always have the level, that's clear. But without the spark of genius that makes all the difference ...
1984 ... which does not prevent them from continuing to produce titles of very high caliber. What talent !
1985 ... the last notorious hit. And not the least ! But this time, the end is really fast approaching ...
1985 ... almost 15 years after their debut, the great adventure of the 4 girls is coming to an end. An incredible adventure which allowed them to leave musical treasures of which they can be proud in the musical history of the 80s, that's for sure !
