Digitally remastered edition of this 1975 album from the Soul sensations. Originally from Texas, Archie Bell & The Drells hit #1 with their first single recorded for Atlantic in 1968, the gold-selling 'Tighten Up'. In 1975, they signed to Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff's Philadelphia International subsidiary label TSOP (The Sound Of Philadelphia) and recorded this R&B Top 10 album. The first two singles taken from it, 'I Could Dance All Night' and 'The Soul City Walk' charted, but the third single, 'Let's Groove', provided them with their biggest hit since 'Tighten Up'. This release is the first time that this classic album has been issued on CD and the booklet features full annotation by PIR authority Tony Rounce. Edsel.

Review by Andrew Hamilton
Seven good songs from the Houston, TX, natives. On, "I Won't Leave You Honey," and a song obviously written for the O'Jays, Archie proves he's a quality soul belter. "I Could Dance All Night" written by Bunny Sigler, Ron Tyson, and Alan Felder, is a pleasant mid-tempo, lilting dance ditty, the melody will have you humming along. Tyson co-wrote the two aforementioned tunes; he later joined the Temptations as the fourth replacement for Eddie Kendricks. Ricky Owens briefly replaced Damon Harris, whom Glenn Leonard replaced. A good party record, "Let's Groove," and "The Soul City Walk" stand tall. The Drells were: Lee Bell (Archies' brother, ) James Wise, and Willie Pernell.
