The Weather Girls
Success

A Reissue of the Original 1983 Studio Album

The Weather Girls were Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes. The duo started out in the gospel group NOW (News of the World) before becoming backup singers with Sylvester in the late seventies. They were then named Two Tons Of Fun and had a run of Disco hits on the Fantasy label.

The group then signed with Columbia Records and changed their name to The Weather Girls in 1982. The newly named duo’s first single 'It's Raining Men' quickly became a massive club hit in the US, topping the Dance/Disco chart in 1982. Their debut album 'Success' featured the hit single and was an instant US chart topper! Despite only being a minor pop hit at home, ‘It's Raining Men’ became an international smash and eventually made number 2 in the UK in 1984. Since then it has become a massive anthem!

'Success' also featured the hit title track and 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair', which were also successful dance singles. The album demonstrated their strong vocal talents and really paid to tribute to their gospel roots. 

This album is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Disco and ‘80s Pop fans out there!

Please note that this is a Non-Almighty release.
