Product Description:

Includes liner notes by Mark Marymont.
Unknown Contributor Role: The Diplomats.
This is a compilation of Diplomats recordings from 1963 to 1970 issued on Arock, Wand, Minit, and Dynamo Records; omitted are tracks from a stint with Fat Back Records as the Four Puzzles (1967), then as the Puzzles (1968) when William Collier left. Their Dynamo debut in 1968 as Sam, Erv & Tom (Price) -- the remaining Diplomats -- is missing as well. So are tracks cut after 1970 as the Skull Snaps (a trio comprising Samuel Culley and Ervan Waters with newbie George Bragg) on GSF Records, and "Come Back," credited to the Fantastic Puzzles (issued on New Moon and Right On Records). The endearing "Here's a Heart" was their second release and biggest recording; they liked it so much they redid it for their final Dynamo single in 1970; it originally came out on Arock Records in 1963. They never equaled its impact, sales-wise or artistically. If you only know them by "Here's a Heart," then this CD will disappoint you; only "I'm So Glad I Found You" and "So Far Away" (both sweet, lilting ballads), "Accept Me," and the gospel-ish "In My Heart" can run with it. But if you enjoy '50s doo wop/R&B, some of the more dated sounds will please your palate. The 18 tracks represent a good but hardly complete overview of the vast recordings of a group that never smelled the pop Top 40 and barely sniffed the R&B charts. ~ Andrew Hamilton
