For the first time in the Whispers 44 years of performing all over the world, this DVD captures The Whispers performing 19 of their most popular classics and current hits. Filmed before a live audience at Texas Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, this masterpiece was created for the pure enjoyment of the Whispersâ€™ fans.
It opens with the crowd on their feet singing along with "It's A Love Thing", then moves along in perfect transition with "All the Way", and breaking out with the funky, foot-stomping "In the Raw'. Beginning with "I Only Meant to Wet My Feet", they take the audience on a historic journey through the 70's, 80's, 90's and the new millennium with cuts from their 2006 CD, "For Your Ears Only, "Butta" and "Get It On". The Whispers' band, the best and funkiest on the tour circuit, brings the house down on the finale, "Rock Steady", leaving the crowd mesmerized.
This rare collectible couldn't have come at a better time in the Whispers' career where the lead vocals of Scotty and Walter Scott still resonate the smooth, silky sounds of the past and dynamic choreography of Nicholas Caldwell and Leaveil Degree is at its best. The street-corner harmony is incomparable to their contemporaries, and today's youth still clamor to imitate their sound.
