Spanning their biggest singles from the '70s and '80s, the Dramatics' Ultimate Collection includes staples like "In the Rain," "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get," and "Be My Girl." "You're Fooling You," "Welcome Back Home," "I'm Going By the Stars in Your Eyes," and "Me and Mrs. Jones" are some of the other notable tracks from this retrospective, which covers the group's years with Stax, ABC, and Volt. Though it doesn't go into as much depth as some previous Dramatics collections, Ultimate Collection does a good job of presenting highlights from the majority of the group's career. ~ Heather Phares
