Extremely underrated family group from Cape Verde who originally scored with ballads like "Check It Out" and the original "She's Gone" before changing direction under Freddie Perren, who pushed them towards a firmer disco-oriented style. The obvious reference point was the success of acts like Double Exposure on Salsoul, and the result was a top 10 smash in "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel." I personally prefer the followup "Don't Take Away the Music," although "Whodunit" was a bigger hit. They also cut a version of "More Than A Woman" that is definitely more soulful than the Bee Gees. Kashif came on board for "Loveline," their last notable cut. They still tour.
