"Gladys McFadden & The Loving Sisters were with Peacock from their start in 1962 until 1978. They embraced the new sounds early on. Their albums for Peacock are perhaps the most consistent of all of the groups of the time, when it comes to sounding like secular soul records. Gladys was the primary lead singer and wrote almost all of their material, often addressing social matters. She also produced many of their albums. Their 1974 album, The Loving Sisters and Their Sons is one of their finest. Lots of wah-wah guitar and funky grooves at various tempos. Standout tracks include 'Here We Go Again', which would have worked on an Aretha record. 'I Can't Feel At Home' has a lopey feel to it. 'Joy' is a deliciously deep slow groove where Gladys shares the lead with her son, Leonard Givens. 'We're Soldiers' is a nice wah-wah driven groover. 'Forgiving Is Easier' is a driving call and response, with a nice breakdown with just vocals."
