Incredible work from The Whatnauts - easily one of our favorite soul vocal groups ever! The trio work in the same sweet soul modes as more famous early 70s contemporaries on the east coast scene - like The Delfonics or Stylstics - but they've also got a special approach that's quite unique - sometimes more heartbreaking than just about any other group we can think of, but also sometimes a bit more tough, too - almost as if they're able to get in touch with all their emotional spectrum with effortless ease, and serve it up in a way that's completely unfettered from any too-commercial modes! They can blow us away on late nite ballads, then turn around and hit us over the head with deep harmonies on funky cuts too - all produced with a nice raw edge during their important years on the Stang/All-Platinum New Jersey soul label. This set brings together most of their best tracks from that time - including "Just Can't Lose Your Love", "I'll Erase Away Your Pain", "Blues Fly Away", "Try Me", "I Dig Your Act", "Soulwalking", "Let Me Be That Special One", "Why Can't People Be Colors Too", "Message From A Black Man", "Give Him Up", "Just Can't Leave My Baby", "I'm So Glad I Found You", "She's Gone To Another", "Tweedly Dum Dum", and "You Gave Me True Loving".
