The first two albums by the Detroit Emeralds - one of Detroit's finest and most unheralded vocal groups - are here burned on one CD. Thank you technology. These 22 tracks contain just the right mixture of uptown cool and Southern soul to please most everybody. Their hits "Do Me Right," "You Want It You Got It," and "Baby Let Me Take You (In My Arms)" are the cream, but "Wear This Ring (With Love)," "Feel the Need in Me," "I Bet You Get the One You Love" (also done by the Floaters), John Lennon/Paul McCartney's "And I Love Her," and others also work.
Review by Andrew Hamilton
Review by disco75:
These albums from 1971 and 1972 represent Detroit Emeralds' peak work. The group created in these albums a sound that was both uptown and down-home: they combined an urban sheen with southern soul. The tracks have pulsing rhythms; great harmonies; clean, layered but not over-produced arrangements that included brass, and occasionally string, flourishes. If a listener is unfamiliar with the sound of the Detroit Emeralds, it might be said that they were less glossy than the Philly sound of the day, less pop-oriented than Motown, less ethereal than early 70s Marvin Gaye. The Detroit Emeralds had a grittier, bluesier, soulful sound more akin to the work of the Dramatics or Al Green.
The group had four Top 10 hits on the R&B singles charts, most from these two albums. The albums are very strong and consistent - I recommend them over the greatest-hits collections that draw heavily on these two releases anyway. By way of background, the Detroit Emeralds started out as a group of four brothers; by 1970, they were down to two brothers - Abram and Ivory Tilman were joined by James Mitchell. Their backing band was Chapter 8. In 1977 Abram Tilman was the sole original member, and James Mitchell departed to form the Floaters. The new line-up released a 1977 album that was far weaker than the two albums reviewed here, and in fact it contained a reworked, unnecessary version of their best track, "Feel The Need In Me." Another album in 1978 was equally forgettable, with the exception of the storming dance number "Let's Get Together." By far, their best line-up of singers and songs is contained in the two albums on this disc.
