The dreamy, almost silly ballad "Float On" was everywhere on the radio in 1977, and it was both a blessing and a curse for the Floaters, the Detroit quintet that recorded it, because try as they might, they never replicated its success, even though the follow-up single, a wonderful version of "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me," was truly a romantic gem. This set includes both of those singles (as well as the 11-plus-minute LP version of "Float On," which got almost as much airplay as the four-minute single did) and key tracks from the group's LPs to make both an introduction and a succinct career history of the Floaters, who almost single-handedly invented the urban chill soul sound. ~ Steve Leggett
