The Story Behind this Album

This self-titled debut was released in December 1977. The album features our disco-inflected songs such as ‘Computer Love,’ ‘Wayward Love,’ and ‘Be Yourself’. The band put a remarkable disco spin on the Staple Singers’ classic ‘I’ll Take You There,’ with a surprising arrangement and Wilson’s soulful vocals, as well as the group’s funky rendition of Brass Construction’s ‘Movin’,’ and the classic ‘The Way We Were,’ with an admirable take by Precious Wilson who made the song her own.

The disco-inflected debut single ‘Party Party’, written by keyboard player Gerry Williams would find its way to the top 20 in both Belgium and The Netherlands.

For Eruption’s second Hansa single release, a disco cover version of the Ann Peebles classic ‘I Can’t Stand The Rain’ (backed with ‘Be Yourself’) was selected and issued in November 1977. ‘I Can’t Stand The Rain’ broke big in 1978 and, with Wilson’s powerful vocals, became a huge international hit. As well as making the top ten in most European territories, the single reached #5 in the UK, #18 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and even made #1 in Australia.

My Favourite Review – from Amazon

This is simply a fantastic soul/disco/funk/pop album this should have been released long time ago on cd the brillant disco versions of: i cant stand the rain, party, party,computer love. The funk numbers: Be yourself, movin, ill take you there, Funky lover, The smoth soul numbers :The way we were,i cant carry on and the total standout beautiful ballad :do you know what it feels like simply stunning vokal performance. And at last but not least the big big pop number on the album Wayward love should have been a singel. The debut singel :Let me take you back in time is beautiful motown inspiration the big big epic ballad :Love is a feeling will blow you away i cant recomand this album enough it is so well produced and Precious Wilsons vokal are brillant now you have this 6 stars on real cd and not a bootleg version for god sake BUY IT!
