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.

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 ›

I was a kid in the early sixties and though I bought singles, albums were generally out if reach , so those artists who only had a hit or two have existed mostly on singles' anthologies for me. Lately I've been listening to lots of early sixties music and picking out performers who seem worth checking out. Ruby and the Romantics, with their smooth sound on Our Day Will Come seemed like a natural and I wasn't surprised to find a really good group.

They came from Akron, Ohio and played local dances and clubs and managed to get an audition with Alan Stanton at Kapp Records in New York. He liked their sound but wanted to feature Ruby Nash as the lead singer and gave them the new group name. Kapp had connections with many of New York's Brill Building songwriters and they were given a song by Mort Garson and Bob Hilliard which they had slated for Kapp star Jack Jones, in other words very A-List material. Our Day Will Come was Number 1 in the country by the early spring of '63. Their follow up, My Summer Love was top twenty by June but after that their career stalled and listening to them I can't say why.

They could handle just about any material, though their style was basically smooth and mellow, often with a slightly bossa nova beat like their big hit. Ruby's voice is deep and sensuous and was especially effective on love songs. Her version of Hey There Lonely Boy, the group's third single is really lovely, and I prefer it to Eddie Holman's Stylistics-like falsetto in his bigger hit version in early 1970. She also did standards well, including Irving Berlin (How Deep Is the Ocean), Sammy Cahn (Time After Time), and early sixties hits like The End of the World (Skeeter Davis) and I'm Sorry (Brenda Lee).

**** 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
