Editorial Reviews

That vocal style of Theodore, Vernon, Wendell, Keith and Richard gave these guys an unmistakable sound. This 1975 LP has their R&B hits Three Ring Circus (Top 40 pop, too) and Love Has Found Its Way to Me !

The group known as Blue Magic really made its name on the quality and success of its first album. Like The Spinners' first album for Atlantic Records, or The Stylistics' first lp release, "Blue Magic" was a greatest hits collection all by itself. Eight of its nine tracks can be found here, and that pretty much says it all. Their biggest hits ("Spell," "Stop To Start," and "Sideshow") are the highlights of any Blue Magic collection. Also from that album are well-remembered tracks like "What's Come Over Me," "Welcome To The Club," and "Look Me Up." And you'll also find the group's original version of "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely," which was made into a big hit by both The Main Ingredient and Ronnie Dyson. Gems from the group's later efforts are included (like "Chasing Rainbows" and "Three Ring Circus"), but not too many of them, which is why I only give this collection 4 stars. Also, the one missing song from the "Blue Magic" album, "Answer To My Prayer," deserves to be here, and could have easily been included! It and a lot of other lesser-known but still great cuts can be found on a more extensive compilation titled, "Soulful Spell." When I saw Blue Magic in concert back in 1992, original members Vernon and Wendell Sawyer and Keith Beaton were present, and they were fronted by a gifted singer named Rod Wayne. Wayne's voice is different from that of original lead singer Ted Mills, but he hit the high notes with less strain. However, Mills was the group's leader and chief writer, and he also supplied the creative direction, so it was easy to feel something was missing.Read more ›

Blue Magic's debut album, released in 1974, is still one of my favorite albums of all time. Only one song from that album is missing here, but then you'll get "I Just Don't Want to Be Lonely" and the full-length version of "Spell", both of which are absent from "Soulful Spell: The Best of Blue Magic". That other compilation sure has more tracks and covers a wider scope of their career, not to mention the in-depth liner notes telling the group's story. But the best of their music is on "Greatest Hits", which is the CD to get. Those two tracks do make a difference.

Blue Magic, yet another soulful, innovative, silky group from my youth. Oh heavens! Lead singer Teddy Mills and those high notes would send me to the moon and then bounce me over to Mars.

They don't make groups and songs like these anymore. Teddy Mills hold the note on "Spell and Chasing Rainbows," so long, I feel like I'm going to pass out...phew! There is not one dud on this CD, so it is perfect for the novice and more than acceptable for the die-hards.

Just like The Delfonics, Blue Magic are a part of my childhood, they are embedded in my blood and etched on my soul forever.

If you grew up in the 'hood during the mid 70s, you'll remember just about all of these legendary hits. "Sideshow" was a radio favorite and "Spell" is classic R&B balladeering at its best. Such memories and remembrances for me during the beginning of my life when I was beginning to appreciate the artistry in music. And if you are like me, this stuff will make you sigh and think back to childhood.

This is blue magic at it's best. Some of the best songs on this album never got much radio airplay. Look me up, Welcome to the club are classic disco hits. What's come over me and Sideshow are radio hits. Just don't want to be lonely is a hot sleeper.

The long awaited beginning of reissued original Blue Magic albums, digital onto cd, has arrived, and it's about time! These "Titans Of Sweet Soul" produced numerous sweet soul gems, that prior to now were only accessible on vinyl. Whatever the reasons of delay, finally a deal was cut, and those who like/love the music of Blue Magic are winners too! Most are familiar with the music of their debut release 1974s self-titled "Blue Magic", which has been put on the cds that have been availible on the market for a number of years now, as called "greatest hits". One year after the release of the first lp, Blue Magic had hit their stride! The two 1975 album releases "Thirteen Blue Magic Lane", and "The Magic Of The Blue" hit the market with a double-barrel shot of gems! For Blue Magic fans, not-withstanding their first album (the "Live At The Latin Casino album goes into a different category by itself), "The Magic Of The Blue" arguably is considered their second best album, followed by "Thirteen Blue Magic Lane". These two albums? Too many gems to list. Easy to resolve.. It's buy time! Buy these two and the others, if and when released. One of the writer's favorites..."Looking For A Friend" on "The Magic Of The Blue". The cds are high quality (manufactured by "Rhino"), and have the original artwork on the albums. We trust other Blue Magic albums are already being put onto cds. Two 5 star Blue Magic lps.

I've been a Blue Magic fan for well over twenty-years. During the early 70's my girlfriends and I travelled the entire east coast to see "The Magic of the Blue." During rain, shine or winter blizzards, goupies in a positive sense, we were there. We knew when they were on and nights when there was obviosuly something missing. Their harmony combined with smooth dance steps defined one of the best R&B groups of the 70's. Listening to 'The Best of Blue Magic' brings a broad smile to my face. Great listening music on a rainy Friday night with candles & incence buring and your favorite cocktail. (And of course your significant other).
