Ecstasy, Passion & Pain (often abbreviated EP&P or E.P.&P.) were an 1970s early disco band. Their most successful songs are "Touch and Go" and "Ask Me".

 

History

EP&P was founded by Barbara Roy in New York in 1972. Roy was the only fixed member of the group for as long as they existed and responsible for writing most of the group's songs as well as taking care of finances and business. The group was disbanded in 1977 after the release of "Passion" and "Dance the Night Away" failed to match the success on "Touch and Go".

 

Releases

Their single, "One Beautiful Day", written by Melvin and Mervin Steals, peaked at number 48 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1975.

Their single, "Good Things Don't Last Forever", charted at #93 of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1974 while reaching #14 in the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart.

Later in 1974, their single, "Ask Me" spent two weeks at number two on the American dance charts. The song also hit number nineteen on the soul charts and number fifty-two on the Hot 100.

Their single, "Touch and Go", was the group's first release to feature lead singer, Barbara Roy's name on the label. It peaked at number four on the Billboard Dance chart, crossing over to both the soul and pop charts. "Touch and Go" peaked at number seventy-one on the soul singles chart and number ninety-eight on the Hot 100.
