Comments


As Far As Male R&B Vocal Groups From Detroit Go, The Originals Were Never Considered Heavyweights. They Weren't In A Class With The Temptations, The Dramatics Or The Four Tops, But They Were A Decent Group And Had Their Moments. Released In 1974, Game Called Love Is A Competent, If Unremarkable, Effort That Falls Into Two Categories: The Funky "Supernatural Voodoo Woman" And The Romantic Ballads And Slow Jams That Comprise The Rest Of The LP. Fans Of 1970s Blaxploitation Flicks Will Know Supernatural Voodoo Woman As The Theme From Sugar Hill, A Bloodfest That Starred Marki Bey As A Woman Who Hires Zombies To Avenge The Death Of Her Murdered Lover. Like 1972's Blacula, Sugar Hill Is A Cult Classic That Merged The Horror And Blaxploitation Genres With Campy But Highly Entertaining Results. The Infectious Supernatural Voodoo Woman Should Have Been A Hit Single, But It Wasn't And None Of The Romantic Items Became Hits Either. Motown, It Seemed, Didn't Really Get Behind This Album It Didn't Make "Supernatural Voodoo Woman" The Hit It Deserved To Be, And It Didn't Get Behind Romantic Cuts Like Be My Love, Ooh You (Put A Crush On Me) And The Originals' Cover Of Charlie Rich's Pop-country Smash Behind Closed Doors
