Review by Craig Lytle
Joy Ride featured three singles, the first being the dance track "Finger Fever." Ron Banks and L.J. Reynolds co-lead this gritty number with its multi-directional arrangement. The single peaked at number 23 on the R&B charts. The second release was the classic "Be My Girl." Simultaneously released with Michael Henderson's version, the Detroit quintet is in superior form on this soulful number. In addition to being the author of the song, Henderson also produced the Dramatics' version, which peaked at number three on the R&B charts. The final release was the grieving ballad "I Can't Get Over." Reynolds gives a breathtaking performance with his explosive baritone. This single also made the Billboard R&B Top Ten at number nine. While side one is more dance-oriented with moderately paced compositions, side two is more ballad-seasoned with mellow numbers. The group's sleek lead and background vocals remain consistent on every track, and not having any obvious album fillers is also a plus.
