A self-contained soul and funk group out of Alabama, 7th Wonder notched several dance hits in the mid- to late '70s and early '80s, and used the Seven Wonders of the World connection with little subtlety, borrowing the image of the pyramid at Giza as their brand and even wearing traditional Egyptian costumes on-stage. The bandâ€™s first success came with a cover of Kris Kristofferson's â€œFor the Good Times,â€� which was released by Nashvilleâ€™s Abet Records in 1973. The band next signed with Parachute Records in 1978, hitting the R&B charts with â€œWords Donâ€™t Say Enoughâ€� and â€œMy Love Ainâ€™t Never Been This Strong,â€� both of which were recorded at Muscle Shoals Studio. 7th Wonder then moved to Chocolate City Records in 1980, scoring with â€œI Enjoy Yaâ€� and â€œThe Tilt.â€� The bandâ€™s original configuration released three albums, 1978â€™s Words Donâ€™t Say Enough, 1979â€™s Climbing Higher, and 1980â€™s Thunder. ~ Steve Leggett, RoviPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
