“For Your Ears Only” is the first to be produced on the Whispers’ independent label, Satin Tie Productions headed by the Whispers themselves. It’s a heartfelt project and is definitely created for and dedicated to their many fans as a way of saying thanks for all of the years of support”, says Lead singers Scotty and Walter Scott, and a “Labor of Love and a body of work blessed by God”, according to Nicholas Caldwell, singer/songwriter of the Whispers.

The song collection is a mixture of classic soul, rhythm and blues, jazz, and pop, performed in “pure Whisper” tradition from the classic “Don’t Say No” penned by their musical director Grady Wilkins and Road Manager Alonzo Ward, to the smooth, sexy “Butta”, written and arranged by the great Teena Marie. On Valentine’s Day, wives and lovers will be serenaded with the passions of “Diamonds”, “Love Stroking”, “Hold On” and Nicholas Caldwell’s “Love”. On the dating scene, guys looking for a soul mate, can woo them with Ollie Woodson’s “Can I Get Next To You” and “It’s You” (Nicholas Caldwell and the Whispers’ guitarist Emilio Conesa). For the dancers and steppers, “Get It On” and “Love Won’t Let Me Wait” will electrify the party goers and add a touch of soulful, funky class to the local DJ’s night club collection. The “Believers” and “Fans” were not forgotten; “I Sing This Song For You” is dedicated to the Man Upstairs whose gifts of song and songwriting elevated the Whispers to where they are today. As for their longtime fans, the last song on the CD, “The Whispers Love You Too” says it all: “My heart compels me to tell each and every one of you, if it’s the last thing I do, I pray you know it’s true, the Whispers Love You Too!” Whispers’ fans will not be disappointed. A Collector’s Limited edition of the CD will be available at any of the public venues where they will be performing beginning Mid February.

The Whispers have finally achieved their goal of establishing an independent label where they can exercise their creative talents and manage their own musical destiny in the new millennium. Classic World Productions Inc. headed by Darryl Payne, President/CEO has played a significant role in supporting and promoting this project with graphics, manufacturing, distribution, and unlimited access to his facility. Classic World is dedicated to preserving the legacy of some of the world's greatest artists, ranking as one of the most respected and resourceful entertainment companies for back catalogue music.
