    Liner Note Author: Jack Sbarbori.
    Unknown Contributor Roles: Jasper "Jabbo" Phillips; Deljuan Calvin; Harold Scott.
    The three Memphis, TN, natives specialize in tear-jerking, sentimental ballads led by the airy falsetto leads of Jasper (Jabo) Phillips and complemented by Harold "Scotty" Scott and Del "Deljuan" Calvin's heavenly harmony blends. "Love...Can Be So Wonderful" and "I'm for You" are light, sweet romantic excursions. On "Love Maze," a three-hearts-in-a-tangle ballad, a gripping falsetto shares the lead with a buttery tenor on the for-lovers-only selection. "A Thousand Miles Away," originally done by the Heartbeats, is competent but doesn't equal or surpass the original -- then again, no version ever has. The uptempo arrangement of the MOR classic "At Last" leaves one cold. They obviously recorded the toe-tappers to break the monotony of the soft stuff. Too bad Stax/Fantasy Records left "Love Between a Boy and Girl" off this best-of compilation -- that's an unforgivable, downright shame. ~ Andrew Hamilton
