Faith Hope & Charity – 1972 – Heavy Love
Their 2nd album (on Sussex distributed by Buddah Records) with the original line up. Brenda Hilliard, Zulema Cusseaux and Albert Bailey.
Zulema left the group after the “Heavy Love” album, some sources say 1971 but it may have been in ’72. Her first solo album was issued on Sussex while the label was still issuing FHC singles which had been recorded before she left. Brenda Hilliard and Albert Bailey continued as a duo, Brenda and Albert, with one release on a short-lived Sussex subsidiary label Clarama 1200 (1974) ‘Talking About Loving You / This Has Happened Before’.

Faith Hope & Charity – 1978 – Faith Hope & Charity (20th Century)
Faith Hope & Charity departed with RCA in 1978 and signed with 20th Century. They released their forth and final LP ‘Faith Hope & Charity’ with ‘Don’t Pity Me’ b/w ‘Find What You Need’ (No.20 R&B Sept 1978) and ‘Keep Me Baby’ b/w ‘How Can I Help But Love You’, as their last single releases. Zulema occasionally helped out on background vocals with the reformed group but only in the studio – she was not a member. According to many music lovers, this one was their best recording.
