Wilson Phillips Hold On Lyrics

Wilson Phillips Band

Having sold their best-selling debut album, Phillips, the trio enlisted the production again of Glen Ballard, who had also produced their debut. The album’s songs had a big contrast with the ones on their debut. While the many of the songs on their debut album featured upbeat songs with positive, lightweight lyrics, Shadows and Light featured darker songwriting from the trio that dealt with personal issues, such as the estrangement with their fathers (“Flesh and Blood”, “All the Way from New York”), or child abuse (“Where Are You?”).

Wilson Phillips Band

The album got mixed reviews and, although was ranked 4th in the USA and being certified Platinum, it was also seen as a commercial failure. Three singles were released from the album, and they had much less success than those featured on their debut. The ballad “You Won’t See Me Cry” peaked was ranked 20th, the uptempo “Give It Up” ranked at 30 and the final single, the ballad “Flesh and Blood” failed to reach the top 100 altogether, peaking being ranked at 115. By the end of the year, Chynna Phillips later left the band and the group disbanded for 12 years.
