The musical community continues to let its voice be heard in support of the nostalgic, classic, soul sound with a contemporary ambiance that has virtually disappeared under the overwhelming dominance of Rap and Hip Hop. But Dee Bellington, a fan in San Francisco says it best, "You Guys Are One Of The Few Artists That Have Not Forgotten That There Are Still Millions Of Us Out Here That Want And Need To Hear Some Compositions Of Depth And Weight. Butta, Hold On, Don't Say No, You Name It! This Whole Disc Nearly Made Me Weep Because Of The Nostalgic Aura Released Into The Air. The Atmosphere Just Changed!!!

It's been 9 years since their last CD, "Songbook Volume One: Songs of Babyface". With a long list of Billboard hits over the past 30 years and rigid touring schedule, the Whispers continue to win new fans, both young and old. Their popularity stems from a consistent sound, love and respect for women, meticulous choreography on stage, and staying true to themselves. Says Randy Mahon of Eagle Entertainment, "This CD is sheer genius from the sound quality to the song quality! It's classic Whispers as I know them to be, and only want to know them as. From the ballads to the up tempo songs, this is one of the few CD's I've heard where I did NOT have to song skip, I'd be cheating myself if I did." Houston, Washington DC and Chicago DJs are reporting that dance crowds are stepping all over the country to the #1 and #4 cuts. Anthony Minter sums it up, "The vintage Whispers love songs are outstanding. When I need to step up my love game, I put this CD on and the fireworks begin. These brothers sound as good if not better than they did 9 years ago."

Billboard's charting is based on sales data from Nielsen Soundscan. "For Your Ears Only" has been consistent on Soul Tracks.com Top 10, CDBaby's Top 20, and Jet Magazine's Top 20 since May while continuing to sell out in stores across the country. One store owner quotes, "As soon as I put those CD's out on the rack they grow legs and run out of here!" The songwriting team of Teena Marie, Ali Ollie Woodson, Robert Brookins, Grady Wilkins, and the Whispers' own Nicholas Caldwell, created a recipe for success focusing on love, life, spirituality and enduring relationships. As one record executive stated, "You can't stop a hit record." This album is fulfilling its own destiny.
