The Sweet Inspirations

IMG_4420

The Sweet Inspirations   Atlantic Records (1967)   Includes “Why (Am I Treated So Bad),” a song previously recorded by The Staple Singers and a soulful version of “Let It Be Me”, a French song which had been a pop and R&B hit for Betty Everett & Jerry Butler.

The Sweet Inspirations was founded by Cissy Houston, mother of Whitney Houston and sister of Lee Warrick, (herself the mother of well-known sisters Dee Dee and Dionne Warwick).   The group at the time of this first Atlantic recording session also included Myra Smith and Estelle Brown

In a recording session in 1967, The Sweet Inspirations provided the back up vocals for Van Morrison on his classic hit “Brown Eyed Girl”   In 1968, the group did studio work on Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland album, performing backing vocals for the track “Burning of the Midnight Lamp.” They also backed Dusty Springfield on her album “Dusty in Memphis”

In 1969,   The Sweet Inspirations began working with Elvis Presley as both background singers and his warm-up act, as well as doing occasional ‘live’ dates with Aretha Franklin.
