Edward D. Turner | United States | 06/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"LaLa Means I love you is the greatest love song ever recorded! Of course that is my opinion, but if not the greatest, one of the greatest. Thank God this classic lp is now on cd for our pleasure. The cd also contains a sleeper song: 'can you remember' Check that one out! You want to impress your R&B friends, own everything you can by the Delfonics."
Roots of Sweet Philly Soul
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 03/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album from 1968 marked the beginnings of the Sweet "Philly Soul" sound of the 70s, with lovely vocal harmonies set to lush orchestral backgrounds."Beak Your Promise," as well as the remakes, are well done. But it's realy interesting to listen to "Can You Remember." Most people today associate this song with the Jackson 5's lovely version, but this is the original and is just as fine."
'Can You Remember' When Music Was This Good?
G-Funk 4ever | Listenin' to the Delfonics | 06/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The legendary Philly soul group, The Delfonics had been in the game for at least a decade before dropping this 1968 major debut; Thom Bell's production genius, the group's impeccable harmony, and William Hart's beautiful falsetto were all ingredients for a sweet, classic debut, and 6 years straight with hit albums and singles. Albums like this one helped Philly soul bloom in the 70's. "Can You Remember" is one unbelievable jam. The song is a heartbreaker about a boy and a girl growing up together as best friends; the girl grows up and moves on, but the man is still painfully in love with her, and he reminisces vividly about their history. I dare you not to well-up or get goosebumps while listening to this one. When the bridge harmonizes "Baby I Still Love You" leading into the chorus, it gets me everytime. This is what perfect soul is: emotional and deep with great melody. "I'm Sorry" is where a man begs for foregiveness for mistakes made in a relationship. I love the cool concept and wonderful harmony of the title track. The cleverness of lines like "I don't wear a diamond ring;/ I don't even know what song you sing;/all I know is lalalalalalalalala means..I Love You" really make this joint a class act. Speaking of class, this group has soul, and a lotta class. This ain't kiddy pop; this is grown folk music, what real soul is. "Hurt So Bad" and "You're Gone" are sad, but with a more upbeat tempo a la Motown style (like Four Tops, etc), and they are just as wonderful. I like the strings in the chorus of "You're Gone." The Delfonics make some great breakup music that will definitely help you process your emotions after heartbreak. There are some cover songs that the Delfonics brought new life to. "A Lover's Concerto" is upbeat and melody driven, and sweetly romantic, and "The Look Of Love" is a slower mid-tempo Burt Bacharach cover, a "love found" joint. "The Shadow of Your Smile" is a real slow jam cover song (I do not know who did the original) for you and your honey. Next year (1969), they would follow up with the classic The Sound Of Sexy Soul with jams like "Ready Or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide From Love)" and "Somebody Loves You," and 1970's third straight self-titled classic with "Trying To Make a Fool of Me" and "Baby, I Love You." Music like this is timeless. The Defonics are my favorite soul group, shortly followed by The Stylistics (another Thom Bell-produced group full of talent)."
