Description

The Babys were a British rock/pop group that broke through in the U.S. in the fall of 1977 with their hit, "Isn't it Time", followed by Everytime I Think of You", both of which reached #13 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The 1976-1978 Babys line-up consisted of vocalist/bassist John Waite, drummer Tony Brock, Keyboard player/guitarist Michael Corby, and guitarist Wally Stocker. From 1979-1981, the Babys line-up consisted of vocalist Waite, drummer Brock, bassist Ricky Phillips, guitarist Stocker and keyboardist Jonathan Cain.

Isn't it Time is a song that was performed by the English group The Babys in 1977 and was released on their album "Broken Heart."


It was not written by members of the group but by a bass guitarist Jack Conrad along with Ray Kennedy and was presented to the public as a song with a distinctive piano introduction by Michael Corby which moves into an opening vocal performance by lead singer John Waite.

The strong vocals of the three Babettes, a specially selected group of singers, balance the tone of the song which moves through the decisions a lover has to make "I just can't find the answers to the questions that keep going through my mind" and "losing this love could be your mistake." The lyrics are motivated by Ray Kennedy's love for a French woman that he knew during the writing of the song.

The lyrics alone would have a wide appeal and matched with well established musicianship the song still enjoys popularity and numerous recordings can be seen on YouTube.

The drum work of Tony Brock heralds the chorus featuring the Babettes and the slowhand guitar of Walt Stocker brings the song to a close with the Babettes chorus heard alternatively in the left and right channels "isn't it time", "don't have to wait" a result of the production work of Ron Nevison.

The song enjoyed a peak position of #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as #9 on Cashbox and the number one position in Australia in late March 1978.
