Oh, What a Night! The Great Ballads is a wonderful collection of 15 ballads the Dells recorded for Chess Records between 1967 and 1974. Among the songs included are the hits "Stay in My Corner," "Oh, What a Night!," "Always Together," "The Love We Had (Stays on My Mind)" and "Open Up My Heart," which is available for the first time on CD in its original long version; "Since I Fell for You" and "Soul Strollin'" also make their CD debut on this disc. Since it concentrates on ballads, Oh, What a Night! can't be considered a definitive retrospective, but anyone looking for a fine selection of the group's romantic material will find this the perfect choice.
