Honey Cone: Sweet Replies [Hot Wax, 1971]
I know "Want Ads" is pure Jackson 5, but most of this is pure Vandellas. Producer-songwriter Ronald Dunbar must have had lots of advice from label owners Holland-Dozier-Holland--he uses every H-D-H trick and comes up with a few electronic effects of his own on this sturdy LP. Highlights: "Are You Man Enough, Are You Strong Enough" (to raise another man's child), "The Day I Found Myself" (was the day I left you).
