5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE THIS ALBUM, YOU WILL TOO!!!! September 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you love good music, order this album. Ruby and the Romantics are known mainly for the hit "Our Day Will Come" but believe me they were no ONE HIT WONDERS. Rubys sweet melodic voice and the impeccable harmonies of the Romantics will set the mood for a wonderful candle light dinner, background for a low-key cocktail party or an intimate evening in front of a crackling fire.
There are songs on here you have not heard in probably 30 years.
This REALLY is a great album and would make a wonderful gift during the holidays or any time.

5.0 out of 5 stars a GREAT ALBUM from A FANTASTIC BUT NEARLY FORGOTTEN GROUP September 15, 2006
By willgee
Format:Audio CD
RUBY and THE ROMANTICS are one of the great FORGOTTEN groups of POP/R&B HISTORY .FORGOTTEN , BUT NOT DESERVEDLY SO. THESE GUYS (AND GIRL } COULD S I N G !! Fantastic harmonies... great stage presence...LUSH instrumental backgrounds ...beautiful lead vocals by RUBY NASH....THIS GROUP HAD IT ALL ! Most people today only remember THE ROMANTICS as the group that recorded the number 1 smash " OUR DAY WILL COME " ...But,they were much,much more.They were , quite simply, one of the most INFLUENTIAL GROUPS EVER !! Many of their songs were actually re- recorded years later by OTHER artists...who sadly , had MUCH BIGGER HITS with them...which was a tribute to the TALENTED , FINE group they actually were. Examples : Their hit "WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG AND IN LOVE " became a much bigger hit for Motown's MARVELETTES. Their song " HURTING EACH OTHER " became a big one years later for THE CARPENTERS. Their hit " HEY THERE LONELY BOY" became a smash for EDDIE HOLMAN AS " HEY THERE LONELY GIRL " , their BIGGEST HIT..." OUR DAY WILL COME " became a disco smash for THE 4 Seasons' FRANKIE VALLI .Even their name "THE ROMANTICS" was eventually STOLEN by a rock group,the members of which probably weren't EVEN BORN when they had their first hits. Why did all these other artists have much bigger hits with the ROMANTICS' songs than they did ? It certainly wasn't due to lack of talent since , in many cases, their originals sounded much better than the REMAKES. Part of the reason, in my opinion,had to do with the fact their record label, KAPP RECORDS ,part of what is today known as the (MCA} UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, had almost zero experience with the marketing and promotion of R&B artists. This was , after all, the label responsible for such MOR ARTISTS as ROGER WILLIAMS,BURT BACHARACH,AND LOUIS ARMSTRONG. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars great listening February 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I thought the only way Ruby and the Romantics would ever be heard again would be on the pop stations of radio. But thanks for comming out with a cd of their best hits. They are always a pleasure to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, underrated Soul from the 60's. December 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD
**** and 1/2
Ruby & the Romantics have been poorly served by best-of collections, which are too brief and skimpy.
This two-CD, 42-song set goes too far in the other direction, and not everything on here is exciting or worthy of multiple listens by any means. Still, too much is better than too little, and this does thoroughly cover the prime era of the original lineup at Kapp from 1963-1967.
On the plus side, this convincingly demonstrates that there was more depth and quality than is commonly acknowledged to a group that is often remembered only for one song ("Our Day Will Come") or regarded as a lightweight pop-soul group.
There are numerous good blends of girl group Brill Building pop and smooth soul (and, often, light to heavy touches of bossa nova) on disc one in particular.
Star tracks include the soaring Van McCoy composition "When You're Young and in Love", the doo wop-indebted "Moonlight and Music" (penned by the Romantics' Leroy Fann), the obscure Bacharach/David ballad, the delicate bossa nova of "Our Everlasting Love", and, above all, the delicious "Hey There Lonely Boy", eventually reworked into a number two hit in 1969 by Eddie Holman as "Hey There Lonely Girl". Unfortunately, much of disc two is stuffed with dull covers of pop standards that filled out their early LPs. If the standards were omitted, this would be a highly credible and varied anthology, staking a fair claim for the band as an underrated outfit in the poppiest segment of early soul.
For the record, all but one of these tracks date from their stint with Kapp; oddly, one post-Kapp cut, the 1968 ABC single "No More," is thrown in too. R. Unterberger

3.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizingly Pleasant October 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This review is for: Our Day Will Come: Very Best of Ruby and the Romantics (Audio CD)

This is a 2-disc album of "the very best" of the Ruby and the Romantics's collected works. Surprisingly, the entire album holds up as a contemporary pleasure, despite the nostalgic pull of the early 1960s where some arrangements remind one of songs sung by Dusty Springfield, Brenda Lee, Little Eva, or Dionne Warwick.

The first disc contains the more popular, more upbeat songs; the second disc contains the soulful ballads, and it's impossible to choose which disc is the best, except to say I didn't like the Christmas-like flavor of "Every Day Is a Holiday" on the first disc whereas on the second disc, I found all the ballads impossible not to enjoy thoroughly again and again. Then again, on the first disc there's the heartbreaking song, "By the Way," which is unmatched by any ballad on the second disc.

So it's all good, as the saying goes, and each disc satisfies according to one's mood.

The listener is especially rewarded by the wholly unforgettable "Our Day Will Come," but there are other musical pleasures here as well that one will come to treasure. Listening to Ruby and the Romantics keeps one young at heart.

Besides the 4 hits the cd is loaded with filler. Would have been a more effective as a single cd.
