"The Definitive Whatnauts CD include the entire three albums recorded by the group on Stang Records in the seventies plus a handful of unrelease tracks. In a nutshell the Whatnauts sound consisted of a skyscraping falsetto and a David Ruffin like tenor. They excelled on slowies; but message songs were their forte too."
Help is on the way

"I was hit by "Help is on the way" back in 1981 when it was new. Not until 20 years later I was downloading old school soul/funk and came across the song by chance. I had never heard of the Whatnauts but the recording was released by Harlem Records, 1981. It is a great song with a newer sound than some of the samples on this site. Same style as Fat Larry's Band's 'Act like you know'. Great message: 'Mama never said life would be easy... Help is on the way. All you've got to do is pray." Soulful lyrics but funky enough to make you shake."
