Product Description

These guys took Philly soul to the next level in the '60s and '70s. This 18-song collection includes La-La Means I Love You; Ready or Not Here I Come; Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time); You Got Yours and I'll Get Mine; Trying to Make a Fool of Me; Over and Over; Delfonics Theme , and more.

Amazon.com

Among the originators of the Philly soul sound of the late '60s and pre-disco '70s, the Delfonics fashioned hit after hit with the same basic formula of ultra-romantic crooning, three-part harmonies, and a supremely mellow accompaniment that came with a pillow of lush string orchestrations. The 20 Delfonics hits collected on La-La Means I Love You--including their best-known songs, "La-La Means I Love You" and "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)"--amount to R&B easy-listening, often soothing to the degree they become aural wallpaper. At times, though, this stuff can transcend its own schmaltz. --Roni Sarig

When it comes to love and romance, you can't hide, and you can't hide from The Delfonics. They took their sound from the doo-wop tradition. Lead singer and chief songwriter William Hart was heavily influenced by Frankie Lymon and Eddie Kendricks. But he went on to himself influence other high tenors like Russell Thompkins (of the Stylistics) and Ted Mills (of Blue Magic), and dozens of teen-age groups of the 70s (Black Ivory, Jimmy Briscoe and The Little Beavers). Their major hits ("La La Means I Love You" "I'm Sorry" "Break Your Promise" "Didn't I") are all here, as are their lesser successes and significant album tracks. This really is a great collection! Even non-lp singles like "I Told You So" and "Lying To Myself" are here. The one brilliant b-side they did not include was "Baby I Love You." With that one, the collection would have been perfect. "Baby I Love You" will soon see the light of day again, as the studio album "Delfonics" is being released next month. For completists, pick up either "The Professionals" or "More Of The Best" and you'll find other songs the group recorded that were part of an unreleased album, or were otherwise never previously released. But in this album, you have the cream of The Delfonics output, so relax and enjoy. But if you're singing along, try not to strain your voice on those high notes!

The Delfonics are my absolute favorite group of all time. Their music seems to speak to me. I swear I think William Hart wrote,"I'm Sorry", especially for ME! The words say exactly what I was feeling at a particular time in my life. My heart cries everytime I hear it. My other favorites are, "Loving Him", "Hey Love", and of course their Grammy winning song, "Didn't I(Blow your mind)" Why The Delfonic haven't been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, is appalling! I saw them live here in Atlanta last year and let me tell ya'll, the boy's still have it! Groups today just don't compare to their talent, and the just plain feel good music of the late 60's and early 70's. This Delfonics CD was the very first CD I ever bought.(late bloomer) I absolutely LOVE IT! The Delfonics will always be and remain number "ONE" in my Heart, FOREVER!!!

Rhythm & blues music listeners were not necessarily Doo-Wop listeners, who did not necessarily move to the new sound of the sixties, Motown etc., and those not necessarily to the sweet soul sound of the early 70s, or on to the disco sound of the later 70s and on......... Point being, music has always had a tendency of impacting (especially teenagers) the listener as tied in to the era released. That does not mean old school music cannot be enjoyed by non era listeners, good music, as Lou Rawls so eloquently put it.... "will last forever" but, as an example if the question is raised "where was you at" when you first heard the 45 "My New Love" by the Delfonics (so often played on urban radio stations in '68 (also on the "Sounds Of Sexy Soul" lp) and an overlooked song on "hits" cds (do the cd song compilers even know?), what is one's reply? Beginning with their debut single, 1966 "He Don't Really Love You" on the obscure "Moon Shot" record label, followed in 1967 by the 45 "You've Been Untrue"- Cameo-Parkway label, through the last album release in 1974 on Philly Groove Records, the Delfonics music has been sought by those who know and love, "East Coast Sweet Soul" and the Philly Sound". It is a type of music! The writer is taken aback when reading, "This stuff can transcend it's own schmaltz"? "Stuff"? Whoa-a! This is music of an era, late 60s - mid 70s. "Where was we at...., when these songs and albums were released? Fifties "Doo-Wop" or 90s "House" music may be far from everyone's taste but, for those impacted by the music of, at the time, just as relevant to them as the various types and era of music listened to and enjoyed by others, are to them.Read more ›

Getting to the good stuff! This is what they are referring to! The Mighty Delfonics! The soothing, harmonic, soul stirring crooners!

Classic, classic tunes! Listening to them sing on such great songs as, "Break Your Promise," "Somebody Loves You," "Trying to Make a Fool of Me," as well as their other popular songs, will remind you of a time, when hanging beads hung in open doorways, plastic covered furniture, console stereos were all the rage, burning incense was in and that darn "Zodiac" poster hung on many a bedroom wall!

Listening to these stellar fellas croon will transport you back to a time when we didn't "slow dance," we "Slow Dragged." In the basement, at an all night block party, or simply at a "my parents are away for the weekend, so throw on some silky soul" and let's do this," party.

This is music from the past that still breathes now and will continue to do so. Great music never dies, nor does it go stale, and the Delfonics are one of the best from the silky,innovative, soulful period of the late 60's and 70's!

This sound offered an alternative to the Motown Sound. Didn't try to out do it, or out fox it, or surpass it! It's main purpose was to give us something else spectacular to listen to...and it succeeded in spades!
