Full details

Come the 70s and Ember was trying to muscle in on both the all-woman group and glam rock markets with Mother Trucker. If the press release is to be believed, the women were variously involved in the road haulage industry before getting together and being spotted at a London club gig and signed to Ember in 1973. At this time, industry veteran John Madara was heading up the US wing of Ember, and sessions for Mother Trucker (NR 5082, 1975) took place in Hollywood. Highlights include Tonight and Propeller Love, coupled for single release ahead of the album’s appearance, and covers of Gamble & Huff’s Explosion In My Soul (also a single) and Hayes & Porter’s Wrap It Up.
