September 17 street date. The Detroit-based Dramatics (originally formed in 1962) had hit their stride by the time they recorded DRAMA V, their sixth overall album (and second for ABC Records) in 1975, a follow-up to LP, 'The Dramatic Jackpot'. The quintet (which had experienced a number of personnel changes over the preceding years) had established themselves in the premier league of black male vocal groups thanks to early ‘70s hits such as the classics, ‘Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get’ and ‘In The Rain’ for Volt Records. Making its worldwide CD debut, this SoulMusic Records’ reissue includes one bonus track, the Top 10 US R&B single version of ‘You’re Fooling You’ along with liner notes by renowned US writer Quentin Harrison with 2013 quotes from Michael Henderson.
Available now. "The Dramatics release an awesome 1973-74 album Dramatically Yours. The one thing I really love about this one is the sweet ballad type jams on here. The choruses are simply uplifting and beautiful. They really made some deep reaching songs here dealing with the many facets of the game of love like relationship difficulties and heartbreak in "I Made Myself Lonely" and "And I Panicked" (my favorite here), and the uplifting effect of having a mate "Beautiful Feeling." There are less straight funk jams than in 1972's Whatcha See Is What Ya Get, but it also easily recaptures the magic of the classic ballads of that one. What this means is that they dropped another classic soul album with their consistent harmony and deep grooves. Get this one on cd before it becomes rare; I am glad I did. This one and Whatcha See.... are both essential soul albums that should be in every RnB fan's collection." - Soul Groove, Amazon reviewer.
