Album Notes
The Diplomats were good singers and harmonizers, but like so many journeyman soul groups of their time, they never got hold of material that demanded to be a hit, or developed a personality on record that was impossible to ignore. They did make a good number of singles for various labels, however, and this typically well-packaged Ace/Kent compilation brings together 25 tracks they did between 1963 and 1970, a half-dozen of which were previously unreleased. It's something like a skip through the uptown soul styles of the '60s, with some of the earliest cuts still dragging one foot out of the doo wop era, and later ones boasting more polished East Coast soul production on both danceable midtempo numbers and proto-sweet soul ballads. It's all amiable enough, though not remarkable in any way. They did, however, have some associations with interesting larger figures, with Van McCoy involved in some of their early recordings on the writing and production end, as was Charlie Foxx in the late '60s. They also did an early Nickolas Ashford-Valerie Simpson composition, "Love Ain't What It Used to Be," on a 1965 single. Echoes of the Drifters, Sam Cooke, and Marvin Gaye are heard on some other tracks, which was likely part of why the Diplomats didn't get out of the minor leagues, as they didn't create a striking niche of their own. ~ Richie Unterberger

ALBUM INFO
Shortly after copying the tapes into sequence for the production of this CD, I found myself singing what I thought was a great Dells' ballad inside my head (the best place for it). After racking the said cranium for a few days, it suddenly came to me that it was actually the Diplomats' Accept Me that I'd only just committed to shiny plastic. To put singers on a par with the Dells is indeed a great compliment, but this outfit are far from copyists and stand very much in their own name.
 
The CD spans all their recording career from their in demand first single Cards On The Table to the obscure 3rd World release the lovely Sure As The Stars Shine. Always in harmony, the group could deliver big city beat ballads like Van McCoy's I Really Love You, uptown, uptempo stompers like their Minit double header Honest To Goodness / Don't Bug Me and beautiful slow numbers such as So Far Away and I'm So Glad I Found You. 
 
US group harmony fans will be excited by tracks such as the unissued Arock master Forever and the second Minit 45 that never was Our Love Has Changed. Northern Soul fans will simply swoon over the soaring harmonies of Perfect Love which should have been the other side of that Minit single and Honest to Goodness never sounded so clear. It's also great to re-listen to the Wand recordings Can't Get You Off My Mind and Jerkin' Time which were first issued on Kent vinyl in the 80s.
 
Dynamo was the groups most prolific source of released material and it is well represented with I Can Give You Love, I've Got The Kind Of Love and Soul Teacher which was cut as by Sam, Erv and Tom. 
 
Interviews with Sam and Erv have been invaluable in documenting the group's history and Peter Gibbon has constructed a detailed and probably definitive discography.
 
The utilisation of the best of New York's 60s soul writers and producers in conjunction with the Diplomats' own considerable talents has given us a very high quality CD and a great overview of the progress of one of the best vocal groups of that decade. The CD was released to coincide with the group's first visit to these shores since they were here performing in 1968 (sometimes as the Fabulous Isley Brothers).  By Ady Croasdell - ACE RECORDS
