Title: Best of the Superbs
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

One R&B hit with 'Baby, Baby All the Time' is a poor return for the 25 singles The Superbs released on the Dore label between 1964 and 1987. It does not reflect the importance the group had on the West Coast Soul harmony scene. They had their very own sound that is instantly recognizable, a feature only a handful of soul groups can claim. Their ballad work appeals to soul harmony collectors and though their sound can be very sweet, the subtle early Gene Page arrangements and clever song selection makes the music appealing to all soul fans. The group were also capable of fine up-tempo performances. Inevitably they had tracks suited to the Northern Soul scene in the mid-60s. There are two solo tracks by group members and associates Ronnie Cook and Frances Lark with the grouping backing up the leads as usual. An extensive discography is included, though with Dore's random release policy and reworking of titles, it can never be claimed as a definitive document. Interviews with several of the group members tell the long and intricate Superbs' story in detail.
