I Touched a Dream/Whatever Turns You On reissues two Dells LPs from 1980 and 1981, respectively, together on one CD. I Touched a Dream was the last great Dells album, and one of 1980's big surprises. The Dells were on another new label, working with Carl Davis and Eugene Record (also of the Chi-Lites). The pair simply restored the Dells' strengths; each production made sure Marvin Jr.'s roaring leads and Johnny Carter's wavery falsetto were at the forefront. They also got a superb ballad in the title track, a good message song in "It's All About the Paper," and other fine cuts. Whatever Turns You On featured less consistent material, but was still a workmanlike effort. ~ Steve Huey
