What really distinguished The Dramatics from leagues of likeminded vocal groups that thrived in the '70s was their grittiness. The group had roots in Detroit, but the earthy, concrete funk of “Get Up and Get Down” and “Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get” wouldn't have happened if The Dramatics hadn’t hooked up Memphis-based Stax Records, which gave them top-notch musicians and a no-nonsense ethos. “In the Rain” is still The Dramatics' best song—there’s nothing else quite like it in music—but interested fans shouldn't overlook the group’s lesser-known tracks, most of which are would-be hits. “Beware of the Man (With the Candy in His Hand)” and “The Devil Is Dope” reflect the social and political issues of the mid-'70s, but The Dramatics were never better than they were on love songs. Led by masculine vocalist Ron Banks, “Highway to Heaven,” “Toast to the Fool,” and “I Panicked” will put you in a place where all is clouds and warm breeze.
