ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Known for their timeless hits, "Rock Steady", "And the Beat Goes On" and "It Just Gets Better With Time", One of the most respected and enduring vocal groups in the music industry, The Whispers, with a stellar career that spans over four decades, has released their latest CD entitled, "For Your Ears Only”. It charted on Billboard's Top 100 R&B/Hip Hop at number 94 on September 2. It’s been 9 years since their last CD (Songbook, Volume 1, Songs of Babyface, released in 1997), and fans have been clamoring for a new collection of songs perfected by their smooth, harmonious voices.

The musical community continues to let its voice be heard in support of this nostalgic, classic, soul sound with a contemporary ambiance that has virtually disappeared under the overwhelming dominance of Rap and Hip Hop. But Dee Bellington, a fan in San Francisco says it best, “You Guys Are One Of The Few Artists That Have Not Forgotten That There Are Still Millions Of Us Out Here That Want And Need To Hear Some Compositions Of Depth And Weight. Butta, Hold On, Don't Say No, You Name It! This Whole Disc Nearly Made Me Weep Because Of The Nostalgic Aura Released Into The Air. The Atmosphere Just Changed!!!

“For Your Ears Only” is the first to be produced on the Whispers’ independent label, Satin Tie Entertainment, which is headed by the Whispers themselves. It’s a heartfelt project and is definitely created for and dedicated to their many fans as a way of saying thanks for all of the years of support”, says Nicolas Caldwell, singer/ songwriter of the Whispers.

The song collection is a mixture of classic soul, rhythm and blues, jazz, and pop, performed in “pure Whisper” tradition from the classic “Don’t Say No” penned by their musical director Grady Wilkins and Road Manager Alonzo Ward, to the smooth, sexy “Butta”, written and arranged by the great Teena Marie. On Valentine’s Day, wives and lovers will be serenaded with the passions of “Diamonds”, “Love Stroking”, “Hold On” and Nicholas Caldwell’s “Love”. On the dating scene, guys looking for a soul mate can woo them with Ollie Woodson’s “Can I Get Next To You” and “It’s You” (Nicholas Caldwell and the Whispers’ guitarist Emilio Conesa). For the dancers and steppers, “Get It On” and “Love Won’t Let Me Wait” will electrify the party goers and add a touch of soulful, funky class to the local DJ’s night club collection. The “Believers” and “Fans” were not forgotten; “I Sing This Song For You” is dedicated to the Man Upstairs whose gifts of song and songwriting elevated the Whispers to where they are today. As for their longtime fans, the last song on the CD, “The Whispers Love You Too” says it all: “My heart compels me to tell each and every one of you, if it’s the last thing I do, I pray you know it’s true, the Whispers Love You Too!” Whispers’ fans will not be disappointed. A Collector’s Limited edition of the CD will be available at any of the public venues where they will be performing beginning Mid February.

The Whispers have finally achieved their goal of establishing an independent label where they can exercise their creative talents and manage their own musical destiny in the new millennium.

An engaging performance that should delight their fan base.
It's tough to believe that it has been a quarter century since the Whispers topped the charts with "And the Beat Goes On." It's even tougher to believe that in 2006 they still sound this good. For Your Ears Only, the Whispers' first self-released disc, is also their first album in nearly a decade, and I must admit I didn't know what to expect. Well, what they deliver is an engaging performance that should be a delight to their sizeable fan base.

Starvin Marvin

Hold On was the best track of them all
I love the whispers and everything they do....This track Hold On was the best I've heard in a long time....Can't wait to get a copy of this CD.....

Ralph White

Hold On, the Whispers have outdone themselves this time!
Whispers, this one exceeds even your high standards!! Well worth the wait, and the track, Hold On is off the chain. Smooth, stylish, sexy... continue the tradition of old style R&B crooning.

can't say enough people, this remarkable collection of songs makes this the must have CD of 2006. Hold On is the jam. I've been waiting for a winner like this for too long. Thank you Whispers!

My Whispers
Whispers--you all did it again! I love the CD, but desperately want the song that was featured on the FANCLUB website March 17th 2008 entitled: "If only you for me" Is this new--where can I buy it? I apologize for not knowing if this is new, but understand that I have always loved your music, but after seeing you in concert and on the DVD, I am in love. I plan to buy every CD available. I will use CD Baby as they are the sweetest distributor--so up close and personble. Keep harmonizing like you as you warm my heart.

Breathless, Speechless
Yes I received my CD ok and it was perfectly expedited, than you. But it takes more than a minute to express how we feel about the Whispers; they are a gift sent by and from God, a blessing for our ears only, very talented, entertaining, sharp dressed gentlemen. I purchased two CD's one for myself and one for my mother who also loves the Whispers. I took her to see them in concert some odd years ago and we were both in awe! So professional, and they sound great in concert I cannot wait until their visit to Cleveland, OH (May 05, 2006). I also love your website, please ware every suit on the website in concert. Mom loves on the CD Love Won't Let Me Wait, but my favorite is Butta, I love that song. I enjoy the entire CD but Butta, em, em good boo! Now let me go get some butta popcorn or dip something in butta. Mom and I love you guy's keep up the great work and beautiful music. Bernita and Madolyn
