Untitled[edit]

Is the 'Philly Soul' label appropriate or adequete for this entry? The band are described as starting off in Houston, and listening to the track 'Tighten Up' suggests much of more of a 'Southern Soul' feel. Can anyone comment on this further? - Objective Hack.

Separate subjects[edit]

The person Archie Bell and the band Archie Bell & the Drells are not the same thing. It should be separate articles. LarRan 13:53, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Tighten Up Lyric[edit]

Is the line really "we dance just as good as we walk" ? It sounds more like "want," not walk. It's hard to tell on the original recording, but it much more clear on a youtube video of a live performance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0n7C1AyU-9Q —Preceding unsigned comment added by 180.183.185.128 (talk) 17:01, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

It is indeed hard to tell exactly what's said, but doesn't "just as good as we walk" make more sense? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.3.38.150 (talk) 20:44, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

despite their incapacitated leader?[edit]

Quoting the entry:

"The success of the single prompted the band to rush out an album, despite their incapacitated leader."

Okay, call me dumb; but whom is this referring to? Kennedy? Archie? I wouldn't think that there are racist weasel words in this entry.

Just want to make sure this is clear in the entry.

Thanks,
