The Three Degrees - Giving Up, Giving In

The Three Degrees scored a No 12 UK chart position in 1978 with this particular disco stompa entitled “Giving Up Giving In”

The group has simply consisted of three female vocalists at any given time, however there have been twelve different ladies that formed the three women line up from 1963 onwards

The groups biggest success came in 1973 after being signed to Philadelphia International, they recorded with session band MSFB to produce the theme tune to Soul Train (USA) entitled TSOP (The Sound Of Philadelphia)

However it was Helen Scott, Valerie Holiday and the formidable and somewhat sassy Shelia Ferguson that appear on this particular release with Scott replacing long serving member Fayette Pinkney within the groups line up in 1978

The Three Degrees - Giving Up, Giving In (Slack Edit #7)

The edit came about after listening to this tune after it had been posted on a popular social internet site by fellow Brightonian Phil Love Disco who regularly shares footage of various classic disco numbers on his profile page should you wish to check him out

Audacity was used to cut, splice and repeat the sections chosen for this edit which is again another slack affair with a fair degree of trail and error attached to it if you listen closely enough

There’s 100 downloads available so if the limit is reached then feel free to ask for a copy and we’ll send one out

Many thanks to all three ladies for letting rip on the harmonies and of course Phil for sharing the track in the first place

Hope you enjoy it and find some good use for the download
