This heartfelt collection of soulful girl group singing is one of Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles' best efforts before the quartet downsized into the trio LaBelle. The quality songs and singing, along with the slick (often too polished) arrangements and orchestrations, put it over the top. Legendary Southern soul writers Spooner Oldham and Dan Penn wrote the title track, "Dreamer"; Curtis Mayfield composed the wet-eyed "I'm Still Waiting"; Trade Martin chipped in on "Take Me for a Little While"; and Hall-of-Famers Burt Bacharach and Hal David put together "Always Something to Remind Me." Not a dog on the disc. Originally released in 1965, Dreamer also features unforgettables like "That's How Heartaches Are Made," "One More Phone Call," and the forgotten wedding song"Down the Aisle." ~ Andrew Hamilton
