Best known and most successful in the UK, The Three Degrees had a one hit wonder in the US in 1974 with When Will I See You Again. The song was a real soft rock gem that fit perfectly into the scene of its day. With beautiful harmonies, a look and a style patterned undeniably after The Supremes, and a big following for their biggest hit, the group continued in the spotlight throughout the 1970’s, only making one more major chart appearance, the Soul Train theme, recorded with MFSB, called TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia.)
Many ladies have graced The Three Degrees’ line up over the last forty years. Originally formed in the 60’s, they underwent personnel comings and goings before they broke big in the mainstream. The trio has continued to evolve with new singers replacing old ones, and some original members returning all along as well. Still, they remain popular in England and When Will I See You Again remains a radio favorite in the US too.
