Notes

Text on Back cover:
Any experience possessing the power to stir the imagination or in some way stimulate one's emotions is said to be dramatic. Ron Banks, Larry Mayer, Willie Ford, Larry Demps, and L. J. Reynolds combine to form the mellow and melodious bunch we have come to know as The Dramatics. Quite appropriate, isn't it? How? Well, let's stop right here and backtrack momentarily.
Can you recall the first time that "new" record dropped from the spindle to the turntable and you immediatly found yourself "gettin' down" and singing "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get"? Kinda stimulated that boogy emotion didn't it? The what about the dramatic and urgent warning in "Hey You. Get Of My Mountain" and the stirring mockery and satisfaction in a "Toast To The Fool".

Remember when...
there was a time we sensed despair and
did feel so much pain, that made us think
than anywhere else we'd rather be
"In The Rain"?

In your hands you hold the best of the tunes and the times that The Dramatics stirred, stimulated or soothed something within you. You owe yourself a listen. After all, how many times can you recapture a feeling?
