Editorial Reviews

2008 digitally remastered two-fer containing the third and fourth albums from the pioneering Philadelphia sweet Soul trio on one CD. With the collaborative genius of Thom Bell, the Delfonics laid down the ground rules for all of the sweet Soul harmony acts that followed in their wake - most notably the Moments, the Chi-Lites and the Stylistics (who also worked extensively with Bell). In doing so they created some of the finest records of their generation, several of which can be heard here. .20 tracks. Kent.

I can't believe it! For the first time ever is the Delfonics' obscure and hard-to-find "Tell Me This Is A Dream" album from 1972, coupled with their 1970 "The Delfonics" album. These are the trio's best albums during their reign, and what a great idea to offer them both as a "two-fer". William Hart, Wilbert Hart & Randy Cain are the Kings of Philly Soul, and with the help of producer Thom Bell, they recorded some of the best soul music ever.

"The Delfonics" album (Philly Groove #1153) is a true classic all by itself. Nearly every song was released as a single or a "B Side" single that became a hit after receiving significant airplay. Hits such as "Trying To Make A Fool Of Me", "Didn't I", "When You Get Right Down To It", "Over & Over", "I Gave To You" and "Baby I Love You". What pure delight! This stuff brings back a ton of memories from the early '70s. It just doesn't get any better than this.

"Tell Me This Is A Dream" (Philly Groove label, #1154) was produced by Stan Watson, not Bell, but the album doesn't disappoint as the Delfonics maintained their traditional sound and style that fans loved on their previous releases, "La La.." and "The Sound of Sexy Soul". Also, when this album was released, Randy Cain had left the group and was replaced by Major Harris (who three years later went solo and recorded the hit "Love Won't Let Me Wait").

The album contains the hit "Hey Love", the first single from the album which was actually released in 1971 (back in those days, the singles were released 6 months to a year before the album dropped, so fans had a preview of what was to come as they anxiously awaited the LP's release). It features Wilbert on lead vocals, as do most of the other songs on the album. He also wrote most of the songs on this release.

Tell Me This is a Dream is 10 years older than I am, but as a young, passionate fan of the Delfonics, I was frustrated to find this album previously only available on vinyl, and I do not have, nor can I afford a record player. Now, Kent Records releases a two-fer with this album preceded by The Delfonics 1970 self-titled classic. I pre-ordered this cd as soon as I found out (2 months before the Dec. 16th release date), because I have only heard a few singles on a hits comp of the 1972 album. As for the cd quality, 5 star material with nice sound quality and good remastering. The Delfonics (1970) is their 3rd album (4th if you count 1969's Super Hits), and is a wonderful soul album with nice production by Thom Bell. William Hart has that wonderful falsetto that can carry any emotion. "Baby I Love You" is a perfect jam, and I love the "wop bop bop bop's" showing the group's doo-wop influence. "Think About Me" is a nice upbeat jam with nice strings with nice mellow vocals. "Trying to Make a Fool of Me" is one of my favorites. The group analyzes a relationship filled with mind games, and it is time to let go. The beat is nice rolling funk with a nice "sitar," a trademark of early 70's Philly soul (Thom Bell also used the style with The Stylistics). "Funny Feeling" is a cute upbeat joint, a nice groovy jam to dance to originally released in '69 before the album was released. The horns in the jam are mad tight. Overall, a wonderful album. NOW, it's time for the long-awaited 1972 Tell Me This Is A Dream part on CD. Simply and unequivocally stated, this album is another masterpiece in the Delfonics' discog!! They push the envelope and try different styles. And, they do it mostly without Thom Bell, who was working more with The Stylistics and The Spinners at the time.Read more ›

Classic Delfonics with lots of hard to find songs, Cuts 1-10 feature the Hart Brothers and Randy Cain line up with that incredible three part harmony and some songs with William & Wilbert Hart trading off on lead vocals. Cuts 11-20 Feature The Hart Brothers and Major Harris Line up with Wilbert Hart & Major Harris writing and leading more on vocals with William Harts Backing Falsetto vocals, Amazing Vocals and if you ever saw them live in their prime you know they could sing. No studio tricks here Just great love songs and singing.

I'm sure you'll find a lot of "it's about time and finally" regarding the Tell Me This Is A Dream album. I use to have the cassette and I have the vinyl album but it's scratchy. If the sound is as good as the previous two reviews mention then this was worth the wait. This is my favorite Delfonics album because there is not a bad song on it. I like every song. Some of the songs I haven't heard in over 15 years ago. I just placed an order for it at Amazon and can't wait to get it. Now if only Gamble & Huff would release the Intruders stuff that's never been on CD. A box set would even be nicer.
