Van Dykes Discography of CDs


Tellin' It Like It Is: The Mala Sessions Tellin' It Like It Is: The Mala Sessions CD 5 stars
CD Check Availability  Details
Van Dykes CD discography This reissue includes four previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded during the TELLIN' IT LIKE IT IS sessions. Digitally remastered by Bob Irwin and Jayme Pieruzzi (Sundazed Studios, Coxsackie, New York). The 1960s were a great era for soul/R&B vocal groups: The Impressions from Chicago, The Temptations from Detroit and, though they're lesser-known, the Van Dykes from Texas. The Van Dykes based their sound on the falsetto-led, gospel-inspired harmonies of Curtis Mayfield's Impressions, but with echoes of 1950s doo-wop (especially on "Never Let Me Go" and "You're Shakin' Me Up"). They approach the positive-themed, uplifting majesty of the Impressions with the swelling, dignified "You Need Confidence," and even dabble in bossa nova with the gently pleading "I'm For Real, Baby." While not as innovative as some of the period's acts, the Van Dykes combination of uptown strut and down-home harmony keep things real by not coming off too slick or show-biz. There's restrained, soulful guitar playing not too far removed from the blues, organ not far from the church, and sweet, earnest harmonies that fill the room. TELLIN' IT LIKE IT IS is recommended for devotees of '60s sweet soul groups. Re-Issue Plus 4 Bonus Tracks Recorded at Sound City Recording Studios, Fort Worth, Texas between 1965 & 1967. Originally released on Bell (6004). Includes original liner notes by Enoch Gregory and reissue liner notes by Bill Dahl. The Van Dykes: Rondalls Tandy, James Mays, Wenzon Mosley (vocals). Producer: Charles Stewart. Reissue producers: Efram Turchick, Bill Dahl. Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl. Recording information: Sound City Recording Studio, Fort Worth, TX (1965-1967).

Van Dykes albums This odd and somewhat revealing 25-track collection of doo wop and early rock & roll obscurities includes cuts from such forgotten groups as the Bandaleers, the Laurels, the Van Dykes, the Indigos, and the Underbeats, among others, all of which have titles that end in the words "of love," as in "The Ten Commandments of Love," "Words of Love," "Flame of Love," etc., a scheme that seems a little silly, even as it does a commendable service by giving some absolute rarities a digital airing. Let this collection of Doo Wop Valentine's classics pull on your heart strings - reminding us that love is much more ...
