Format: Audio CD
What this 2011 CD doesn't advertise too well is that it contains 'two' Stax albums and not just one - and then for good measure - throws in two more bonus tracks as well (and it's pitched at mid-price too). Here are the details...

Released Monday 12 September 2011 in the UK, Concord Music Group, Inc 0888072331761 breaks down as follows (59:03 minutes):

Tracks 1 to 8 are their debut album "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" - released January 1972 in the USA on Volt Records VOS-6018 and April 1972 in the UK on Stax Records 2362 025

Tracks 9 to 16 are their 2nd album "A Dramatic Experience" - released October 1973 in the USA on Volt Records VOS-6019 and April 1974 in the UK on Stax Records STX 1021

Tracks 17 and 18 are "Stand Up Clap Your Hands" and "Hum A Song (From Your Heart)" - two previously unreleased tracks which first appeared on the 1991 CD reissue of "A Dramatic Sensation"

The new 12-page booklet has very knowledgeable and affectionate liner notes by ROB BOWMAN (author of "Soulsville, U.S.A.: The Story Of Stax Records"). You also get the original artwork on the front and rear of the booklet, musician and session details, a collage of 2 photos on the inlay beneath the see-through tray and the disc itself pictures the original LP sleeve (front and rear). But it's a shame the booklet doesn't go any further - there's no new photos, no memorabilia - not even a picture of the title track - their most famous and beloved tune. Surely a promo 45 could have been procured? It makes the inlay feel workmanlike at best - even a little dull - when it should have spread its wings a little. But the big news is the SOUND...

The title of this album is my theme song. Every time I walk into the room this song is played...actually, it isn't...but in my mind, it is. I love this album. If the only song on this recording was, Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get, I still would've bought it because that's an R&B/Soul classic right there...

What does a crazy white boy know about soul?

Baby, I got soul coming outta my soul.

I love this album. I listen to it all the way through at least twice aweek and I listen to the title track at least once a day. Don't believe me? Ask my wife. One time I put this thang on the CD player and just hit the repeat button. I played it continously for an hour. She came into the study and said very sweetly, "John, sweetie, if you don't play another song in the next few minutes, I'm gonna take the CD out of the player and huck it across the street..."

So, keep it "real" and buy this...you'll be so glad you did...

Well, I gotta go across the street and retrieve my CD. I hope it didn't get hurt any...

The Detroit-based Dramatics first full-length album, Watcha See is Whatcha Get, was also their ticket to the national soul scene. The group had been kicking around in a variety of forms since the mid-60s, but made only light impressions on the charts. They hooked up with Stax in the late `60s, but it wasn't until they returned to Detroit and cut "Whatcha See is Whatcha Get" with producer/songwriter Tony Hester that they really broke through. The single's chugging Latin beat, tight strings and horns, and a lead vocal that flowed between the group members proved irresistible, and the single rose into the national Top 10. The funky follow-up "Get Up and Get Down" momentarily stalled the group's commercial momentum, but the album's next single, "In the Rain" rose to #5 Pop and topped the R&B chart. The album version of the latter hit stretches out the single's 3:29 to an even more inviting 5:11.

The group continued to score on the R&B chart, but never again found the same level of cross-over success. Additional personnel changes altered the group's vocal balance, with lead singer William Howard replaced by Larry Reynolds in 1973. You can hear the transition in this disc's bonus tracks. Concord's reissue includes the group's entire second album, A Dramatic Experience (including the superb anti-drug "The Devil is Dope"), as well as the funky bonus tracks "Stand Up Clap Your Hands" and "Hum a Song (From Your Heart)." The entire disc has been remastered in 24-bit audio by Joe Tarantino, and given the low quality of vinyl sold in the early `70s, this is very likely the best these discs have ever sounded outside the studio.

I was 14 years old on Christmas Day in 1972 when I received this LP from my sister. I knew the two main hits, "In The Rain" & the title track, but I also heard the songs "Hot Pants in the Summertime" & "Fall in Love Lady Love", on our local soul radio station, KDIA. 7 of the 8 tracks included on this Soul Masterpiece are "10's" in my book. All but the quirky "Gimme Some (Good Soul Music)" get's my highest score. Then again, there is something with the Dramatics that made them a bit "Different" from other soul groups at the time. I can't put my finger on it, but they almost had a "Garage" sound. But, that's my opinion.

If you're a fan of 70's soul music, this is a must have to add to or start your collection.

Also, at the Visitacion Valley Jr. High School talent show in 1973, a band made up of students (the only one that I really knew from the band was Jerome Hawkins) played the song, "Hot Pants in the Summertime" to a roaring crowd of teenagers. What great times those were.
