There Is

The Dells


‘There Is’ from 1968 is probably the Dell’s finest moment and contains joyful soul and deep 50’s-flavoured ballads, reflecting the group’s roots as a doo-wop outfit (the Dells originally formed in 1953). It’s arranged by the great Charles Stepney and the whole album has an elaborate, rich, cinematic sound, with a baroque, sophisticated orchestral backing framing the angelic vocal harmonies. The album also includes a pair of classic uptempo soul stormers, ‘Run For Cover’ and ‘Wear It On Our Face’ that were adopted by the UK’s fanatical Northern Soul scene.
