A deal with Atlantic subsidiary Atco, in 1967, led to some new material for Darrell.

Mirasound Studio on 47th Street provided the backdrop for vocals while Detroit continued to provide the rhythm tracks. 

The new material included a cover of Gene Chandler's "Here come the tears"; Cosby/Moy's Jobete dancer "Angel Baby"; Derek Martin's classic ballad "You better go"; and a mix of three McCoy/Redd songs co-written with Cleveland Horn, and others.

An album emerged called "Darrell Banks is here". Also making it onto the album were the two Revilot 45's.

Atco also issued two 45's; "Here come the tears"/"I've got that feelin'" and "Angel baby"/"Look into the eyes of a fool", but they failed to chart.

Another branch of Atlantic Records, Cotillion, also issued a 45 in July 1968. "I wanna go home"/"The love of my woman", although competent, suffered a similar fate to the Atco material.
