CD Reviews

THE DUBS-MORE THAN JUST "MAGIC."
Raymond Lindstrom | Laughlin, NV | 11/26/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We all remember "Could This Be Magic," a doo wop classic. But, the Dubs did a great job on all their cuts. Unlike some groups that just sound good on their few hits and the rest are forgettable, the Dubs have a CD filled with great sounds. There's not a bad one in the bunch. Listen to this and be pleasantly surprised. They take a back seat to no other groups."
Fantastic Doo Wop and all original recordings.
Suzette M Atzel | Wauconda, Illinois United States | 10/29/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love the Dubs Doo Wop and I love all the songs on the CD. If the recordings or artists are not the original they are terrible. I have this on an album and never thought I would be able to get it on a tape as it is pretty old. I really love the sound of the Dubs."
The Mystery Group
Jeannette M. Bennett | 08/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The wonderful "Could This Be Magic?" is today acknowledged by many as one of the all-time best R&B ballads of the late 1950s. And yet, despite being recorded by an acknowledged R&B group [lead Richard Blandon, Cleveland Still, Bill Carlyle, Tommy Grate, and Jim Miller], it made no impact whatsoever on the R&B charts. It did, however, hit # 23 Billboard Top 100 in November 1957 b/w Such Lovin'.

The same thing applied to their only other charters (Don't Ask Me (To Be Lonely) - # 72 Hot 100 in July 1957 b/w Darling, and Chapel Of Dreams - # 74 Hot 100 in September 1959 b/w Is There A Love For Me?). That has to be THE puzzle of chart history because, listening to them even some 50 years later, this is one of the best group sounds to emerge in that era, bar none.

Perhaps, as another reviewer points out, their overall lack of chart success may be attributable to their label. Certainly, no one will ever confuse Gone with Columbia.

In any event, this is an enjoyable album which features, in addition to their three charters and their flipsides, true stereo versions of Your Very First Love and Blue Velvet, and includes one of my favourite songs, You're Free To Go. Don't miss out on this one."
