It’s nice to be able to feature a female group – and this one is certainly here on merit. Hot Ice were a Philly group and if the writer credits on their Turner 45 are anything to go by, the members were Helena M Ray, Eleasha Turner and Wandetta Smith. All Of This Will Slowly Die has a strong melody and some tasty chord changes and the hard lead singer and background harmonies are right on the button. The arrangement is as orchestral as befits a disc from Philly and the whole package gels very well.
Fire / All of this will surely die ~ TURNER 105 (70s)
Loosey goosey / Pt 2 ~ MORNING GLORY 100 (1980?)
