Inscribed by Joni/Sister Sledge on front artwork. Cd has a few light scratches. Artwork/case are very good. I'll say this, the music isn't half bad. Actually, I'm starting to like the album. It had been a while since Sister Sledge had released anything, atleast in the states, but this new release "African Eyes" is well worth the wait. Sisters Debbie, Joni and Kim Sledge return with a more mature sound that covers every base from jazz to house to pop. From the opening number, the very inspiring "Walking In The Light" (produced by the jazz fusion group Incognito) to the very sweet closing number "Cry for Soweto" the sisters take you on a trip that should be traveled over and over again.

Sister Sledge's next album, Love Somebody Today (1980), was also produced by the Rodgers/Edwards team, and the single "Got to Love Somebody" became a number six R&B hit. In 1981, Sister Sledge switched producers and worked with Narada Michael Walden, who produced 1981's excellent All American Girls. The title song was a number three R&B hit, and in 1982 Sister Sledge had a number 14 R&B hit with a cover of Mary Wells' "My Guy" that appeared on The Sisters. But after that, the foursome's popularity faded, and they never had another Top 20 hit.
