More than just Rock the boat
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 02/28/2005

"They named themselves after the business empire of Howard Hues and they recorded some excellent easy listening disco music in the mid-seventies, but they are remembered as a one-hit wonder. Although it's not strictly true, nearly all acts eventually get reduced to one hit in the public mind. Bing Crosby had over 300 hits in America, but how many people could name more than one?

Rock the boat is one of my favorite disco songs from the seventies. Anybody who was around at the time, or younger people who have listened to a lot of seventies music, will be familiar with it, because it regularly appears on various artists compilations and it gets its share of radio airplay. If, for whatever reason, you are not already familiar with this song, I recommend you seek out a various artists compilation on which it is included before worrying about this.

Formed in 1969, the Hues Corporation got plenty of practice working the LA nightclub scene before they got their break in 1973 via an appearance in the movie Blacula. Freedom for the stallion, their first single, was a minor American hit. Rock the boat followed, going to number one in America and number six in Britain, as well as being a huge hit in many other countries. Only one more significant hit followed. Rockin' soul went top 20 in the USA and top 30 in the UK.

All three hits are included in this collection of a group who may not have been among the most important disco groups, but whose music is definitely worth a listen."

"I bought this cd, because there is no other with all their hits. I especially bought for the 12" versions. But to my surprise only "love corporation" is about 10 seconds longer than the original on vinyl. The rest isn't."

"The group that named themselves after a famous billionaire, one Mr. Howard Hughes...and scrambled the name a bit. The nuggets on this album of course are their biggest hits including "Freedom For The Stallion" ( also covered by Three Dog Night) and "Rock the Boat". There are quite a few above average tunes in this collection such as "Love Corporation" and "Rockin' Soul". Worth a listen."
