Why Am I Treated So Bad
I’ve Been Loving You Too Long
Lead singer of Sweet Inspirations
at one time was Dee Dee Warwick
and the group also included her sister Cissy Houston
(mother of Whitney).
They did lots of back up vocals individually or together for the Drifters, Wilson Pickett
, Solomon Burke
, Garnett Mimms, Aretha Franklin
and even Van Morrison.
Over the years they had many line-up changes – they started out as the Drinkard Si
ngers and ended up in the late 70’s as a disco act!
In 1967 they released Touch Me Hold Me Kiss Me
1967- (Black Perl USA) POLYDOR in the UK, and this song was played at the Wheel & Blue Note.
Maybe they changed thier name to Sweet due to the fact that there was an existing male group already called The Inspirations
