A two-man, two-woman vocal group with a penchant for recording soap-opera ballads dealing with adultery, the Soul Children were signed to Stax Records in the late '60s and first clicked on the soul charts with the multi-part single "The Sweeter He Is." Their biggest hit came in late 1974 with "I'll Be the Other Woman," which dented the pop Top 40.
After Stax closed its doors in 1975, the Soul Children recorded for Epic and later issued several up-tempo dance singles for Fantasy's reactivated Stax label. The group temporarily stopped issuing new music by the decade's end; however, they reconvened nearly 30 years later for the release of 2008's Still Standing. ~ John Lowe, Rovi
