As part of Stax's Very Best series the Dramatics are spotlighted on 18 tracks recorded between 1969 and 1974 for the Memphis based label. This set is aimed at the casual listener and includes the group's first Top Five hit from 1971, "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get," followed by the original Top Ten versions of "In the Rain," "Hey You! Get off My Mountain" and "Shake It Well." This 2007 compilation is slightly superior than the 1976 version Best of the Dramatics, also on Stax, due to overall improved sound quality and the addition of the tracks "Your Love Was Strange" from 1969 and their last R&B charted single "Bridge Over Troubled Water" from the late '80s. ~ Al Campbell
