Headlights

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Craig Lytle
The Whispers had scored a couple Top Ten hits prior to his album, but most of their songs, in spite of their quality, floundered in the latter half of the Top 100. However, Headlights houses two singles that graced the Billboard R&B Top Ten and Top 20. "Let's Go All the Way" was the first release. With a modest mid-tempo groove paced by an uncanny bass rhythm and a sprightly horn section, Walter Scott and Wallace "Scotty" Scott inflict their wholesome vocal appeal which is enhanced by the group's harmonious background vocals. The beat was too funky for disco, and not funky enough for funk. Notwithstanding, it is a solid number. It sealed the Billboard R&B Top Ten. ...

However, Headlights houses two singles that graced the Billboard R&B Top Ten and Top 20. "Let's Go All the Way" was the first release. With a modest mid-tempo groove paced by an uncanny bass rhythm and a sprightly horn section, Walter Scott and Wallace "Scotty" Scott inflict their wholesome vocal appeal which is enhanced by the group's harmonious background vocals. The beat was too funky for disco, and not funky enough for funk. Notwithstanding, it is a solid number. It sealed the Billboard R&B Top Ten. On a slower yet moderate note, "Olivia Lost and Turned Out" illuminates with sensuality in spite of the song's message, which laments a young lady's life on the streets. It tipped in at number 13 on the charts after 22 weeks. "You're A Very Special Part of My Life" was never a release but a beautiful number it is. From Walt and Scotty's unwavering delivery to the song's soulful flow, it is reminiscent of the Natural Four's "Can This Be Real." It has become a standard on the quiet storm format. The title track is a funky selection, as is "The Planets of Life."
