It was the third hit off of the album, "In the Rain," a delicate ballad that was issued separately as a single in early 1972, topping the R&B charts and reaching number five on the pop charts, that solidified the group's reputation and elevated them to the front rank of '70s soul acts

A fantastic album by The Dramatics – with a harder funkier sound than you’ll find on most of their other LPs! The record has the group moving into a post-Temps righteous soul vein – grooving hard on the cuts Get Up and Get Down and Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get, as well as the drug reference cut Marry Don’t Cha Wanna, one of those messed-up lyric numbers we’d expect from a Latin Soul group! . The Afro-Cuban-flavored Get up and Get Down followed it into the R&B Top 20, and the Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get album followed them both. It was the third hit off of the album, In the Rain, a delicate ballad that was issued separately as a single in early 1972, topping the R&B charts and reaching number five on the pop charts, that solidified the group’s reputation and elevated them to the front rank of ’70s soul acts.

What you see is what you get" was a popular catchphrase at the time thanks to comedian Flip Wilson, whose outspoken character Geraldine Jones often said it on The Flip Wilson Show. This was the group's first single through the Stax Records imprint Volt. The Dramatics' version was used in the 1975 action comedy Darktown Strutters, starring Trina Parks and Otis Day. It was also featured on Season 2 of Fargo in the episode "The Gift of the Magi. Public Enemy sampled the "chuck chuck" exclamation in their 1989 hit "Fight The Power" to reference the rap group's Chuck D. More songs from The Dramatics. More songs about liars or people who are fake. More songs used in TV shows.
