'Ain't No Stopping Us Now'

Risco Connection

This is a great rendering of McFadden and Whitehead's classic. It has a reggae vibe to it and mixes wonderfully with The Clash's 'Magnificent Dance'. Black Rose Music is the name of the label, matrix number JIH1001 by Risco Connection. It is from New York, a Joe Isaacs production with vocals by Otis Gayle Soul. It came out in 1979

PHILADELPHIA -- John Whitehead, a prominent R&B artist best known for the 1979 hit song "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now,"was shot dead Tuesday, police said. Whitehead, 55, and another man were working on a vehicle when they were shot by two gunmen, police said. The assailants fled. Whitehead was shot in the neck and collapsed.

    Gene McFadden and John Whitehead had years of experience as cowriters and -producers of some of Philadelphia International's most indelible hits (the O'Jays' "Back Stabbers" among them) by the time they got their shot as recording artists in 1979. While their career as hit-making performers burned short, the light was bright. This album, their first, contained a propulsive multipurpose anthem in "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now"; while nothing else here is quite as exciting as that, up-tempo Pendergrass-style cuts such as "Just Wanna Love You Baby" and "I Got the Love" are examples of label talent cruising at a peak just before the commercial, er, bottom fell out of disco. --Rickey Wright, Amazon.com
