The Whispers is the ninth studio album by American R&B/soul vocal group The Whispers, released on October 20, 1979 by SOLAR Records. It was the first hit album for the veteran group, peaking at number one on the Billboard Top Soul LPs chart, as well as number six on the Billboard Top LPs chart
The Whispers was their first big album effort. This starts off with "A Song for Donny," a song written by Carrie Lucas that serves as elegy to Donny Hathaway. The ballad, set to the melody of Hathaway's "This Christmas," is touching, apt, and believable. The Leon Sylvers-produced "Out The Box" is almost as good. Although the group is known for its dance tracks, they had equal success with ballads. The neoclassic "Lady," written by group member Nicholas Caldwell, features a smooth vocal from Wallace "Scotty" Scott. The last track, "Welcome Into My Dream," with its romantic arrangement, stays this side of smarmy and acquitted by the sedulous guitar fills and the well-intended vocals. The Whispers isn't a great album but it more than set the standard for their subsequent work.
