First Landing is a superb debut album by one of Detroit's most under-appreciated groups. The Dynamics cut these tracks in Memphis, TN, giving the album a deep soul sound. "The Ice Cream Song," written by former member Zerben R. Hicks, raced up the R&B charts and remains their most popular recording. A killer version of the Motown classic "Since I Lost You," punctuates these soulful selections; the gorgeous Ronnie Shannon ballad "What Would I Do" is impeccably done.
