The Dells

Digging through some old LP's recently made me think are the Dells the greatest soul group ever?

In terms of longevity they are probably unsurpassed and I believe the line up is virtually unchanged since their early days.

"It's all up to you" is one of my all time tracks - simply flawless in my opinion.

are the Dells the greatest soul group ever?

...Unquestionably so.

Soul music just does not get any better than "Does Anbody Know I'm Here", "The Love We Had (Stays On My Mind)", "Please Don't Change Me Now" etc. I sometimes wish that those who just know the Dells tunes that have been played out down the years would dig a little deeper to find that "Make Sure" is not the alpha and omega of the Dells - but if they only know the dancers, they are blessed nonetheless...

TONE :yes:

Huge venue, everybody seemed to leave once the Dells had been on :D I've got a vague recollection of the fire alarm going off in the morning, with about an hour to go, which kind of signalled the end of the night. It happened at Stoke as well, so I could be getting mixed up?

Fantastic group, so many great tunes all that have been mentioned plus ' Bring back the love of yesterday' and the sublime Dells/Dramatics-Love is missing from our lives.
