"After seeing Mother's Finest, back in the day, I was a fan from the very first note, I have not seen another band that was hotter, badder, tighter, or funkier than Mother's Finest. Their blend of Funk/R&B/Rock is something to behold, If you never seen them "LIVE" you missed a truly remarkable band....."
The most interesting album of MF

"This one is the most interesting album of MF. Ambitious arrangements, perfect harmony vocals, true black feeling. Along with the LIVE'79 album this one is the best of MF. I do appreciate the hohner clavinet on this CD. It takes me back in the 70ies. And don't forget the best Joyce Kennedy's song - I CAN'T BELIEVE. Yes, I can't believe that this song was written by a lady. So perfect! Incredible voice. Highly recommended!!!"
Their R&B Album lacks the hard rock funk sound

"After delivering hard rock funk on their first 3 albums, especially on MOTHER'S FINEST [ 1976 ] and ANOTHER MOTHER FURTHER, this album MOTHER FACTOR is more R&B oriented. It does not have the frenzied rocked up pace of those classics, but instead more emphasis on a softer sound and lighter funk. The group said that their record label made them make a more R&B slanted album. So, in place of Moses Mo's hard rock guitar solos, there is more use of keyboards and bass. Certainly not bad, as the Mother's were far too diverse and multi-talented to be stuck in one direction. LOVE CHANGES is a beautiful ballad sung so soulfully by Joyce Kennedy that was an R&B hit . She certainly gives Tina Turner or Patti LaBelle tough competition for gutsy powerful singing. DON'T WANNA COME BACK is the other most well known song on here - great uptempo funk sung by both Joyce & Glenn Murdock. Nothing catches fire as hot as their blend of rock and soul on those other albums, which is the REAL sound of the band without any of constraints of being held back."
