DramaticsGreatest Slow Jams ... CD
Stax/Concord, 1970s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
We love The Dramatics in all their modes, but we're especially fond of the group when they're working with mellow tracks and ballads – because a slower pace really seems to open up their harmonies, and have them hitting even greater heights than on their groovers! This package is a dream come true for us – as if someone went through and carefully picked out all the best slower-speed Dramatics tracks from their classic albums for ABC and Stax – then laid them out back to back as a really dreamy late nite set! Titles include "In The Rain", "Hey You Get Off My Mountain", "I Can't Get Over You", "Toast To The Fool", "Just Shopping", "I Dedicate My Life To You", "And I Panicked", "Fall In Love Lady Love", and "I Was The Life Of The Party".

New DramaticsDrama V (with bonus track) ... CD
ABC/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn great work from The Dramatics – a group who never seemed to miss at all during their massive 70s run – and one who really knew how to hold onto an edge in their vocals, and most of their grooves as well! The main maestro here is Don Davis – one of the few late 70s producers who could still balance things this well – really keeping all the strengths of the group's work for Stax/Volt, and avoiding any of the then-current tendencies to go for easy chart or dancefloor play – a mode that results in a rock-solid album that's a joy to behold with each new track! Michael Henderson helps out the group on a few cuts – and Tony Hester wrote a few tracks as well – really giving Ron Banks, LJ Reynolds, and crew some great material to work with – just the right tunes that mix sublime harmonies with a great balance of funky numbers and mellow moments. Tracks include "She's A Rainmaker", "Things Are Changing", "Treat Me Like A Man", "You're Fooling You", "Just Shopping", and "Come Out Of Your Thing". CD features a bonus track – "You're Fooling You (single mix)". CD

New DramaticsJoy Ride (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ABC/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweetly smooth grooving from The Dramatics – tighter than their years at Stax, but still tremendous stuff vocally – with a sound that mixes the rough and the sweet like nobody else! The album features works by a number of different producers – including group members Ron Banks and LJ Reynolds, plus Michael Henderson and Don Davis, whose talents are perhaps most responsible for the strength of any of the group's best records. David Van De Pitte does a bit of arranging on the record too – bringing in some of the fuller, clubbier styles he's known for. The album features a sublime mellow harmony track entitled "I Get Carried Away" – plus the tunes "Be My Girl", "I Can't Get Over You", "Stand Up & Move", "Sundown Is Coming (Hold Back The Night)", "Finger Fever", "After This Dance", and "Say The Word" and more. This expanded edition includes the bonus US single versions of "Be My Girl" and "Sundown Is Coming (Hold Back The Night)". CD

New DramaticsNew Dimension ... CD
Capitol/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Dramatics definitely hit a new dimension here on Capitol Records – a new home for the group in the early 80s – and a label who really helped them find some new energy in their music! The placement's no surprise – given that singer LJ Reynolds was also working for Capitol during the early 80s too – and the sound here's a bit different than before, more in an 80s groove mode at points, but still plenty darn great on the vocals! Ron Banks produced, and did some of the arrangements with Ray Johnson, Tom Tom, and Leon Mitchell – and the best tracks here have wonderfully smooth harmonies – soaring over the top with a deftness that's pure Dramatics all the way through – and perhaps even better than the sound of the group's few previous albums. There's a few more electric moments at points, but these are more than warmed away by the great vocals on the other numbers – and tracks include "She's My Kind Of Girl", "Treat Me Right", "I Can't Stand It", "Night Life", "I Believe In You", "It's Dramatic Music", "I Don't Want To Lose Your Love", and "Live It Up".

New DramaticsShake It Well – Best Of The Dramatics 1974 to 1980 ... CD
MCA, Mid 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent middle period work by the Dramatics – recorded after their years at Stax, with a slightly smoother groove, and featuring some great tunes that really sparkle! By this point, the group were hitting a Detroit modern mode – with less of the rough edges of the Stax work, which meant that the harmonies were even tighter than ever – perfectly placed on the best cuts, with a precision you wouldn't have expected a few years earlier. Songwriting is still great – and this 16 track set features many fine numbers from their ABC LPs of the late 70s when the group were working with Don Davis. Titles include "Be My Girl", "Love Is Missing From Our Lives", "Door To Your Heart", "Stop Your Weeping", "Shake It Well", "You're Foolin You", and "Do What You Want Be What You Are", one of the greatest 70s ballad tracks ever!

New DramaticsWhatcha See Is Whatcha Get ... LP
Stax/Volt, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album by The Dramatics – with a harder funkier sound than you'll find on most of their other records of the time – a gritty gem from the group's early years, and a record that really deserves its placement on the Stax label! The record has the group moving into a post-Temptations style of righteous soul – grooving hard with a really heavy bottom on funky numbers like "Get Up and Get Down" and "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get", and even dropping a bit of a drug reference on the cut "Marry Don't Cha Wanna" – one of those messed-up lyric numbers we'd expect from a Latin Soul group! But the album's also got a sweet side too – as it features the amazing ballad cut "In The Rain", which has some of the most amazing production you'll ever find on the Stax label – harmony work that rivals the greatness of the east coast scene of the time. Other tracks include "Gimme Some", "Thank You For Your Love", and "Hot Pants In The Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

Even more amazing – CD features a huge amount of bonus tracks – the entire Dramatic Experience album – an amazing blend of sweet soul harmony vocals, Memphis soul production, and some other-worldly songwriting that far surpasses later work of the group. This album's one of the band's most righteous, with a mixture of Curtom-type message cuts and sweeter love songs – and it includes the cuts "The Devil is Dope", "Beware of the Man (With The Candy In His Hand)", "Jim, What's Wrong With Him?", and "Hey You! Get Off My Mountain". CD also features 2 more bonus tracks – "Stand Up Clap Your Hands" and "Hum A Song". CD

Ron BanksTruly Bad ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the original Dramatics, singer Ron Banks strikes out here on his own – a slept on gem from the early 80s! The set's in a similar modern soul mode to LJ Reynolds, who also worked with him in the group, and was having a bit of a solo career of his own at the time. It's got sort of a D-Train feel to it – with classic male soul vocals over instrumentation that includes some slight electro touches, especially on keyboards and drum programs. Banks keeps the whole thing nice and soulful, thanks to some great vocal work, which you'll hear on the smooth mellow track "Let Love Flow", which has a beautiful down-tempo groove, and a nice two-step beat – plus the other mellow tracks like "Make It Easy On Yourself" and "You and Me". Uptempo club cuts include "Truly Bad", "Zap", and "She's So Good to Me". CD

Bar-KaysYou're The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me/You're Still My Brother ... 7-inch
Volt, 1972. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Two totally excellent cuts by the second version of The Bar-Kays – both with a super-dope vocal soul style that's more fitting of the Dramatics! "You're The Best Thing" isn't the famous female soul song, but a different cut – with great guitar behind some stellar harmonies! "You're Still My Brother" is a strong message of racial unity, set to a stormin full production style! 7-inch, Vinyl record

EnchantmentOnce Upon A Dream (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roadshow/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
Soaring soul from Enchantment – one of the smoothest groups of their generation, and an outfit who could sound equally great on the dancefloor or for more laidback listening! The harmonies here are really great – stepping out strongly, and often breaking with an extra effort that almost seems gospel-inspired, but without the cliches that usually mar work of that orientation. Production and arrangements are by Michael Stokes, and very good throughout – full, but stepping back nicely on the more intimate numbers – so that the voices dominate beautifully, and really send home the tunes – in a way that's almost like that great turn The Dramatics took in their post-Stax years. Titles include "Up Higher", "Angel Of My Life", "Silly Love Song", "You Must Be An Angel", "If You're Ready", "Sunny Shine Feeling", "It's You That I Need", and "You're The One". CD features 2 bonus tracks – single versions of "It's You That I Need" and "If You're Ready". CD

David RuffinSo Soon We Change ... LP
Warner, 1979. Sealed ... $2.99
Warm and wonderful soul from David Ruffin – key proof that the singer could keep on going strong, long after his earlier fame at Motown! The record's got a new sense of sophistication that really breaks David into new territory – a style that's nicely different than the backings Ruffin got from Van McCoy in his later Motown years – and which opens up a more mature sound, courtesy of producer Don Davis – who's casting Ruffin in the same blend of rough and smooth that worked so well for The Dramatics! There's a sophistication here that's completely sublime – a sound that's right up there with Leroy Hutson or Leon Ware – and most tunes hit a mellow or midtempo mode that's totally great! Tracks include "Chain On The Brain", "Break My Heart", "Morning Sun Looks Blue", "Let Your Love Rain Down On Me", "So Soon We Change", and "Sexy Dancer". LP, Vinyl record album

Soul ChildrenThere Always (Finders Keepers/Where Is Your Woman Tonight) ... CD
Epic/Shout (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $4.99
The post-Stax, Epic southern soul of the Soul Children – 1976's Finders Keepers and 1977's Where Is Your Woman Tonight back-to-back! Finders Keepers is a strong little album by the group – recorded with a very different sound than the Stax work – but one that's still totally great overall! The grooves are a bit warmer and more modern soul styled – uptempo at times, but never in a throwaway club mode – and in a way, the shift is a bit similar to that taken by The Dramatics at the same point. There's still plenty of nicely rough edges in the vocals – that raspy sense of soul that first made us fall in love with the group – and by this point, the lineup has been reduced to a trio, with more of a focus on male vocals than before. The session's filled with work by great Detroit talents who include Don Davis, Steve Mancha, and Harvey Scales – and tracks include "Finders Keepers", "A Little Understanding", "We Got To Get Our Thing Together", and "I'm Just A Shoulder To Cry On". Where Is Your Woman Tonight is another Epic gem with the group going for a smoother soul sound. Some tracks are a little uptempo, in hopes of a crossover hit – but mostly, just a a solid effort with the group continuing to grow from a raw soul group into a smoother one. This session features production by David Porter at Malaco studios, with the kind of mellow slightly funky vibe that the studio was perfect at for a few years. Titles include "Take Me Make Me", "Head On Collision", "Where Is Your Woman Tonight", "There Always", and "You Don't Need A Ring". CD

VariousFunky Funky Detroit – Rare & Unreleased Motorcity Funk & Soul ... CD
Funky Delicacies/Tuff City, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Detroit finally gets its funky due – stepping out from the shadows cast by endless Motown and Northern Soul compilations, and fixing its funky wagon to a great batch of rare indie groovers! The package brings together some real gems from labels that have barely, if ever, been reissued in the past – Sport, Big Hit, and Northern – and features tunes that run in vintage from the late 60s through the mid 70s. There's a really fierce funky 45 sort of feel going on here – with lots of deep deep bass on the best cuts, plenty of snapping drums, and vocals that have lots of raw and rough southern-styled touches! The set's got 17 tracks in all – with titles that include "Party On 4th Street" and "Mama Didn't Lie" by Black Nasty, "Going To Get It" by Calvin Williams, "Don't Leave Me To Be Lonely" by The Dramatics, "Funky Soul" by Dynamic Walton Brothers, "You Better Get Yourself Together" by Timmy Shaw & Chuck Holiday, "Keep On Stepping" by Black Nasty, "Bit Off More" by Lynn Day, and "Uncle Tom" by Herbie Thompson.

VariousPlanter's Club Vol 4 Selected By DJ Samir – The Believer's Edition ... CD
EmArcy (Austria), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $14.99
The 4th volume in this amazing series – filled with righteous mellow soul all the way through! There's a gentle groove here that we totally love – one that's slower and more laidback than any other collection we can think of, but which has a slyly funky undercurrent that shines through in every single tune. DJ Samir's done an incredible job of going past the obvious – digging hard through a variety of older LPs to pull out tracks that have a slinky, seductive, mellow soul approach – and which fit together perfectly in a collection like this. Titles include "Man Up In The Sky" by Barrett Strong, "Never Let You Go" by The Dramatics, "Somethin Bout Cha" by Latimore, "Pick Yourself Up" by John Whitehead, "Tryin To Love Two" by William Bell, "Stop Steppin On My Dreams" by Jerry Butler, "Let Your Love Rain Down On Me" by David Ruffin, "I Love You More & More" by Tom Brock, "Come Back To Me Lover" by Margie Joseph, "Somebody's Been Enjoying My Home" by Don Covay, and "Tear It On Down" by Marvin Gaye.

Stax/Soul Temple, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 3LP ... $21.99
The funkiest side of Stax Records – a treasure trove of funky nuggets, all hand-picked by RZA! As the title implies, these are some of the grooves that became the building blocks of the Wu-Tang sound – but even without that pedigree, these tracks are more than great enough on their own – a wonderful mix of album cuts and rare singles – some you'll recognize from famous hip hop samples, some you'll discover here for the first time ever! The triple-length package is overflowing with greatness – and titles include "I Could Never Be Happy" and "I Like It" by The Emotions, "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" by The Mad Lads and another "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" by William Bell, "Children Don't Get Weary" by Judy Clay, "All It Takes Is You & Me" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Poverty's Paradise" by 24 Carat Black, "I'll Play The Blues For You" by Albert King, "Why Marry" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Steal Away" by Johnnie Taylor, "Hang On Sloopy" by David Porter, "Ike's Mood 1" by Isaac Hayes, "In The Rain" by The Dramatics, "Don't Take My Kindness For Weakness" by The Soul Children, "Packed & Took My Mind" by Little Milton, "Sing A Simple Song" by Booker T & The MGs, "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" by David Porter, "LA Jazz Song" by Booker T & The MGs, "Walk On By" by Isaac Hayes, and "Keep The Faith" by Mel & Tim.

Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A great little set that focuses on the group soul recordings from the Stax/Volt label – a format that wasn't explored that strongly in the early years of the company, but really grew to prominence as the years went on! Despite the title, not all the work here is in the southern soul mode you might expect – and the collection features plenty of numbers that rival the greatness of east coast harmony soul of the time, plus some other rare bits that are beyond description! Many numbers here are relatively obscure – and the 13 track collection features singles that include "Since I've Been In Love" by The Dramatics, "The Echo" by The Epsilons , "All Because Of You" by The Limitations , "Since I Fell For You" by The Lords , "Mannish Boy" and "Too Much Going On To Say Goodbye" by The Newcomers, "Which Way" and "Anyone Can" by The Leaders, "I Love You, You Love Me" by The Temprees, "Let Me Repair Your Heart" by The Mad Lads, "Peaceful Journey" by Fat Larry's Band, and "I'll Be Your Anything" by Ollie & The Nightingales.

Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 70s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data – an overall package put together by liner note giant Bill Dahl! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. 25 tracks that include "Starting All Over Again" by Mel & Tim, "I Gotcha" by Joe Tex, "Hearsay" by The Soul Children, "I'll Take You There" by The Staple Singers, "Rip Off" by Laura Lee, "Outa Space" by Billy Preston, "In The Rain" by The Dramatics, "Gimme Some More" by The JBs, "Think" by Lyn Collins, "Too Late To Turn Back Now" by Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose, "Trying To Live My Life Without You" by Otis Clay, "Use Me" by Bill Withers, "Baby Sitter" by Betty Wright, "Power Of Lover" by Joe Simon, "Still In Love With You" by Al Green, and "Woman's Gotta Have It" by Bobby Womack.

You know RZA isn't compromising or messing around when he's including Isaac Hayes' 15+ minute "Joy" in the set list – and the whole thing is great – really a top-shelf compilation from the Stax vaults! Nearly 2 1/2 hours of music on 2CDs! Includes "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" by The Mad Lads, "I Could Never Be Happy" by The Emotions, "All It Takes Is You And Me" by Sweet Inspirations, "Move Over" by Soul Children, "Steal Away" by Johnny Taylor, "Keep The Faith" by Mel & Tim, "Sing A Simple Song" and "LA Jazz Song" by Booker T & The MGs, "Poverty's Paradise" by 24-Carat Black and more.
