Album Review

Singer Brenda Payton and keyboardist Maurice Coates were the creative spark behind Philadelphia's Brenda & the Tabulations, and the pair wrote several impressive songs for the group, including the debut single "Dry Your Eyes," which was released by Gilda Woods' fledgling Dionn Records imprint at the end of 1966 and went Top Ten on the R&B charts and Top 20 on the pop charts early in 1967. This set collects "Dry Your Eyes" and the rest of the singles the Tabulations released for Dionn between 1966 and 1969, including a trio of sides produced by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff in 1969 just before Dionn Records ceased to exist. Some of these sides feel a bit like filler material, but the high points (and "Dry Your Eyes" is obviously the highest) are a lot of fun.


Formed: 1966 in Philadelphia, PA

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '60s, '70s

Among the better Philadelphia soul groups of the '60s and '70s, Brenda & the Tabulations made some fine heartache ballads, particularly "Dry Your Eyes" and "Right on the Tip of My Tongue." The original lineup was lead singer Brenda Payton, Jerry Jones, Eddie Jackson, and Maurice Coates. Bernard Murphy joined in 1969. They became a trio in 1970, featuring Payton, Pat Mercer, and Deborah Martin. "Dry Your Eyes" was their biggest hit, reaching number eight on the R&B chart and number 20 pop in 1967....
