The Temps, the Four Tops, The Delphonics. Those and a lot of others seem to garner their fair share of mention when talking great male singing groups. Why not the Mad Lads?? While they may not have been as prolific as a lot of their contemporaries, they certainly had as much talent. This collection underscores that fact with some of the best classic soul singing and harmonizing you'll ever hear. "Seeing Is Believing", "Cry Baby" and "So Nice" are prime examples of a classic soul ballad, a must if a group is to be taken seriously. "Love Is Here Today And Gone Tomorrow" almost rivals any of the Temps uptempos down to the very "Ruffinesque" lead vocals, and no disrespect to Isaac Hayes, the Lads version of "By The Time I get To Phoenix" is the ultimate in my opinion. The only real misstep on the album is their cover of William Bell's classic "I forgot To Be Your Lover". It's almost a totally different song, and I mean that in a bad way. Otherwise a phenomenal collection of tunes here, one no soul afficianado should be without. I even was shocked to hear 2 instances of De La Soul sampling from "Make This Young Lady Mine" and "No Strings Attached", a lil something for diverse music heads like me! Oh, did I mention this was a Stax/Volt release?? Don't hesitate, the Mad Lads are fire!
