A mighty mighty dip into the legendary Invictus Records catalog – the Detroit soul powerhouse headed up by the 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
