VariousInvictus Soul Box Set (3CD set) ... CD
Invictus/Sanctuary (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 3CDS ... $14.99
A mighty mighty dip into the legendary Invictus Records catalog – the Detroit soul powerhouse headed up by the Holland-Dozier-Holland team after they departed from Motown! The Invictus groove is a much heavier one than Motown – a righteous approach to soul that uses plenty of bass, plenty of funk, and lots of deeper production styles – all at a level that was perfect for the growing sophistication in Detroit as the 70s loomed large. Like Motown, the label had a number of key acts that used similar studio backing – an approach that made for very unified feel on most numbers, and a cross-label sound that comes through perfectly in this set – no matter what the artist on the record! 3CD set features a total of 68 numbers in all – all packaged into one nicely-priced box, with loads of rare singles from some of the related labels in the Invictus family. Titles include "Bar B Q Ribs" by Raynel Wynglas, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "I Got It" by New York Port Authority, "Cheba" by The 8th Day, "Crumbs Off The Table" by Glass House, "Band Of Gold" by Freda Payne, "VIP" by Scherrie Payne, "Everything Good Is Bad" by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, "Something New About You" by The Silent Majority, "Your Love Controls Me" by The Jones Girls, "The Music Box" by New Play with Ruth Copeland, "Patches" by Chairmen Of The Board, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "That's Love" by The Hi-Lites, "Can't Get Enough Of You" by Tyrone Edwards, "Wanting You" by Earl English, "Rip Off" by Laura Lee, "I'm Not My Brothers Keeper" by Flaming Ember, "New Breed Kinda Woman" by Holland Dozier Holland, "Why Can't We Be Lovers" by Lamont Dozier, "Mama's Little Baby" by Brotherly Love, "Unhooked Generation" by Freda Payne, "Bump Your Lady (parts 1 & 2)" by Natural High, "Sitting On A Time Bomb" by Lee Charles, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, and "Time Gonna Change Everything" by Lucifer.

✨✧ VariousInvictus Greatest Hits/Hot Wax Greatest Hits (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Hot Wax/Demon (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A greatest hits two-fer – made even greater with the addition of 27 bonus tracks! First up is Invictus' Greatest Hits – heavy soul from the house of Holland-Dozier-Holland – some of the best bits from their Invictus powerhouse label of the early 70s – definitely a scene-setting imprint at the time! Invictus had some of the deepest grooves ever recorded by the trio – heavy, rumbling bottom sounds – soaring vocal passages – and production that took the Motown lessons of the late 60s to a whole new level. The package is overflowing with gems – and titles include "Crumbs Off The Table" by The Glass House, "Band Of Gold" and "Bring The Boys Home" by Freda Payne, "Give Me Just A Little More Time" and "Everything's Tuesday" by The Chairmen Of The Board, "You've Got To Crawl" and "She's Not Just Another Woman" by The 8th Day, and "I Had It All" by The Barrino Brothers. Hot Wax Greatest Hits is a great collection of some of the best numbers from the Hot Wax label of the early 70s – second generation Detroit soul that really set the standard for the 70s! The tunes here were massive back in the day – blasting out of juke boxes, car radios, and a fair bit of home stereos too – all for good reason, given the care and balance the Holland-Dozier-Holland team brought to their work in the studio, and their ears for selecting singers to handle the work. Titles include "Want Ads" and "Stick Up" by Honey Cone, "Somebody's Been Sleepin" and "Too Many Cooks" by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, "Westbound #9" and "Mind Body & Soul" by Flaming Ember, "Woman's Love Rights" by Laura Lee "Women's Love Rights", and "Frightened Girl" by Silent Majority. 2CD set also features 27 bonus tracks that include "Somebody's Gonna Hurt You" by Lee Charles, "Colors Of My Love" by The Silent Majority, "Love Machine" by The Politicians, "Touch Me" by Eloise Laws, "Hey There Lonely Girl" by Ty Hunter, "Wanting You" by Earl English, "That's Love" by The Hi-Lites, "Can't Get Enough Of You" by Tyrone Edwards, "I Need It Just As Bad As You" by Laura Lee, "VIP" by Scherrie Payne, "Guess I'm Gonna Cry" by New York Port Authority, "Something New About You" by Silent Majority, and "You Too Me From A World Outside" by Lee Charles.
