The Emotions are an American all female soul, disco, and R&B singing group. The group was formed in their current hometown of Chicago, Illinois in 1968, and originally consisted of the three Hutchinson sisters, all the children of Joseph and Lillian Hutchinson.
Their 1971 Stax LP, Untouched, features the classic break "Blind Alley," sampled hundreds of time, perhaps to best effect by Big Daddy Kane in "Ain't No Half Steppin."
We had this in the bins at Hall of Records for a whole ten minutes before a lucky customer snatched it up.
