Creative Source - Creative Source (1973)

Creative Source formed in 1972 when several West Coast session musicians joined up under the management of Ron Townsend, of 5th Dimension fame. Their self-titled debut album was released a year later on Sussex, which also happened to be Bill Withers' label. THE highlight of the album was the drawn out, funky cover of Withers' "Who Is He (And What Is He To You)," which would become a staple track for club DJ's of the time. The song reached #21 on the US R&B singles charts in 1974. Two other singles, "You Can't Hide Love" and "You're Too Good To Be True," also charted, and the album made it to #21 on the R&B album charts in 1974. Four more Creative Source albums followed over the next three years, but none came close to the promise of their debut, and the group disbanded in 1977 after losing their recording contract.
