HIGH INERGY were an R&B and Soul girl group from Pasadena, Ca. who signed with Berry Gordy’s legendary Motown Records on his self-named Gordy subsidiary in 1977 and went on to have a strong career chalking up nine R&B hits and recording eight albums.
Discovered by Berry Gordy’s sister Gwen Gordy Fuqua the group consisted of singing sisters Vernessa and Barbara Mitchell, both blessed with stunning soul voices, alongside Linda Howard and Michelle Martin who were primarily dancers. Modelled on Motown’s successful girl groups they were named after The Supremes 1976 album “High Energy.
TURNIN’ ON was the groups debut album released in 1977 and they hit the ground running with immediate chart success reaching #6 R&B and #28 Pop. The album was bolstered by the success of the first single You Can’t Turn Me Off (In The Middle Of Turning Me On), a lush, mid-tempo, beautifully sung and orchestrated, sensual groove which ticks all the boxes of classic mid-seventies smooth soul, peaked at #2 R&B and #12 Pop. Follow up single and opening track Love Is All You Need, a dynamic funky work out which adds arresting harmonies and chopping clavinet to the groups soundscape, returned them to the R&B Top 20. Stand out album cuts on this impressive debut are the feel good dance floor numbers Some Kinda Magic and Could This Be Love, tougher R&B cuts like Searchin’ (I’ve Got To Find My Love) and High School, and the breezy ballad Let Me Get Close To You.
