The following statement appeared on the Dells' LP, "They said it couldn't be done but we did it", by WDAS radio personality Carl Helm in Philadelphia, 1977

"People wondered why this album is entitled...."They said it couldn't be done but we did it" so let me try to explain..... The year was 1956, The Dells at that time had hit after hit. I know you, like me, will never forget the classic sound of The Dells doing "Oh What A Night" and then there were the lean years and other groups had passed them by. People are still wondering what has happened to The Dells. Has the 20th century lost a great great group? Are there any producers, writers, and arrangers, who could bring back the good sound of the mighty mighty Dells? Seeing that this was a big challenge "The Harris Machine" decided to record the Dells' next album. Everyone said the Dells could not make it again, but believe me,"The Harris Machine" and the Dells have done it. When you listen to "They said it couldn't be done but we did it", you'll hear for yourself that it has been done".
