Album Review

The Controllers were among the most underrated and overlooked '70s soul groups. They didn't generate nearly as much publicity or have as much crossover success as fellow Alabama performers the Commodores, but their slow songs were far more earthy and explosive. Their reflective "Somebody's Gotta Win," eloquently and passionately delivered by lead singer Reginald McArthur, stands tall amongst the set's more Southern-flavored offerings. This album was a solid hit with R&B and Southern soul audiences, and still retains plenty of power. Collectables later reissued this album as part of their Golden Classics series. ~ Ron Wynn & Andrew Hamilton, Rovi
