Tell Me This Is a Dream is the fourth album by American soul group The Delfonics, released in 1972 on the Philly Groove label. This album introduced singer Major Harris to the lineup replacing founding member Randy Cain. Lead single "Hey Love", with its innovative and distinctive use of harmony, is often singled out as one of the group's greatest recordings, but the overall album has tended to divide opinion. While some consider it a worthy successor to the group's previous albums, others see a decline (Allmusic for example, which rates the group's first three albums very highly, awards Tell Me This Is a Dream only a two-star rating).
