✨✧ 8th Day8th Day ... LP
Invictus, 1971. Near Mint- ... $16.99
The first album by 8th Day – a record with a bit of a complicated pedigree, but a massive amount of 70s Detroit soul as well! The set was supposedly compiled to cash in on the group's hit single "She's Not Just Another Woman" – reportedly recorded by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, but issued under the name 8th Day, so that it wouldn't compete with the group's other hits on the charts! But after that cut took off, Holland-Dozier-Holland needed a group to back it up, so they assembled some lesser-known, but strong, Detroit soul talents to record this album. Unlike the group's second album, which is a much funkier affair overall, this one sounds a lot like 100 Proof – with a raspy southern-tinged soul approach, filtered through some tighter, more full-on HDH arrangements that really give the whole thing a great sort of punch! A great album if you dig the Invictus/Hot Wax soul sound – and titles include "I'm Worried", "Enny Meeny Miny Mo", "You've Got To Crawl Before You Walk", "Just As Long", and "She's Not Just Another Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing on blue vinyl, with obi & insert.)

Glass HouseInside The Glass House ... LP
Invictus, 1971. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A great album by one of lost groups on the Invictus label! Glass House were a stellar male/female vocal group with a good deep soul sound – very much in the spirit of other Invictus albums of the era, with a tremendous feel for down home, gritty soul but executed with the smooth HDH vibe – a really wonderful blend that's slightly different than other Holland-Dozier-Holland productions of the time – making The Glass House a real standout in 70s soul! Ronald Dunbar handled all of the production for Holland-Dozier-Holland, and he also wrote most of the tracks – and titles include "You Ain't Livin' Unless You're Lovin", "Crumbs Off The Table", "Heaven Is There To Guide Us", and "I Surrendered". LP, Vinyl record album
(Very cool Japanese pressing – with obi, and on blue vinyl!)

✨✧ Jackson 5Moving Violation ... LP
Motown, 1975. Very Good- ... $2.99
The cover's a bit gimmicky, but the album's a stone classic – a wicked later Motown moment from the Jackson 5 – and one that has them working with the super-grooving team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! Brian Holland handles production work for the team, and although his touches only appear on about half the record, he really helps the Jacksons hit that wickedly righteous groove that was the trademark HDH sound over that the Invictus label – a bassy, bottom-heavy Detroit sound with just a bit of psychedelic funk as well! Additional production is by Mel Larson & Jerry Marcellino – and titles include "Forever Came Today", "Moving Violation", "You Were Made Especially For Me", "Honey Love", "Body Language", "All I Do Is Think Of You", and "Breezy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

General JohnsonGenerally Speaking ... LP
Invictus, 1972. Very Good ... $14.99
A great solo album by this member of Chairmen of the Board – done with some wicked Holland Dozier Holland production, at a level that almost makes Johnson sound heavier here than in his work with his more famous group! The vocals have that same sort of crazy pinched sound that he had with The Chairmen, and there's loads of great original tunes here – plus a few Chairmen numbers, thrown into the mix, in the way that things sometimes got repeated on the Invictus label. The grooves are nice and bouncy – and cuts include "God's Gift To Man", "Every Couple's Not A Pair", "I'll Never Get Tired Of You", "Mary Lou Thomas", and "My Credit Didn't Go Through". LP, Vinyl record album
(P-Vine reissue pressing, from 1996.)

The vocals have that same sort of crazy pinched sound that he had with The Chairmen, and there's loads of great original tunes here – plus a few Chairmen numbers, thrown into the mix, in the way that things sometimes got repeated on the Invictus label – but that's OK with us, because the tunes are so great.

CD also features four bonus tracks – "Only Time Will Tell" in vocal and instrumental versions, plus "Savannah Lady", and "I'm In Love Darling". CD

Harrison KennedyHypnotic Music ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
An amazing solo effort from Harrison Kennedy – a record that's quite different than his work with Chairmen Of The Board, and a set that's easily one of the most compelling albums ever issued on the Invictus Records label! The set's nice and funky at times – the heaviest expression of that early 70s Holland Dozier Holland groove – but there's also moments that have kind of a playful, offbeat mode that's almost folksy soul – hard to peg adequately in words, but touched with these acoustic elements that are quite different than Kennedy's work with the Chairmen. The oddity of the record almost puts it in Rodriguez territory – especially given the raspy charm of Harrison's vocals – and titles include "Night Comes Day Goes", "Gimme A Glass Of Water", "Hypnotic Music", "Closet Queen", and "Up The Organization".

Love, Peace, & HappinessHere 'Tis ... LP
RCA, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A tremendous little record from Love Peace & Happiness – a great vocal trio from the early 70s, and one who really shine with this overlooked gem for RCA! The trio were part of the New Birth/Nite Liters universe that producer Harvey Fuqua brought to the label at the time – and they've got a hip sound that's right up there with the other two groups – with whom they were very intimately involved – working here with arrangements from Fuqua that are almost his contribution to post-Motown sounds in the 70s, the way that Holland-Dozier-Holland were working at Invictus. Ann Bogan really soars with righteous leads in the group – and gets equal support from brothers Leslie and Melvin Wilson – who really help underscore some of the bolder elements of the music – especially on the funkier cuts. Titles include "I Don't Want To Do Wrong", "Lonesome Lonely & Alone", "Don't Knock My Love", "If I Owned The World", "You Can't Cheat the Cheater", "Stay", "Mind", and "You've Chosen Me". LP, Vinyl record album

MiraclesMiracles Doin Mickey's Monkey ... LP
Motown, 1963. Very Good ... $29.99
An album of dance-oriented tracks by The Miracles – recorded to cash in on the big early success of their hit "Mickey's Monkey"! The set leaps and jumps with the same sort of energy as that great track – a side of The Miracles' talents that's a bit more upbeat than usual. And while we miss the ballads and mellower cuts that we love from the group in their early years, we really love the full-on Holland & Dozier production – which pushes the tunes along strongly with a real wall of sound! Titles include "Mickey's Monkey", "Dance What You Wanna", "The Wah-Watusi", "Dancin Holiday", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Do You Love Me", and "The Groovey Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 2 globes pressing with deep groove. Cover has a half split seams, with an old price sticker and a torn corner on the back paste-on.)

✨✧ Freda PayneBand Of Gold ... LP
Invictus, Early 70s. Very Good ... $19.99
A landmark album from Freda Payne! Freda had been knocking around a bit as a more jazz-oriented singer, and had cut one album for Impulse and one for MGM before this one – but when she hooked up with the hitmaking Holland-Dozier-Holland team for this record, her career really went over the top! The team take Payne's deep soulful voice away from the sophisticated pop of earlier years, and hook it up with a mix of fuzzy Detroit soul and sweeter southern styles. The album includes loads of great cuts – most notably the sublime crossover hit "Band of Gold", but also plenty of other lesser-known gems, like "The Easiest Way to Fall", "Unhooked Generation", "Deeper and Deeper", and "This Girl Is a Woman Now". Her best by far! LP, Vinyl record album

SupremesI Hear A Symphony ... LP
Motown, 1966. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Symphonic soul from The Supremes – a set that still has the trio working with the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland team, but with a full set of orchestral backings that help them hit even more class and sophistication than before! The ballads have these really lush arrangements – never too pop, but swelling with strings that lift up the young voice of Diana Ross in a really regal way – with a style that helps transform familiar numbers from other singers, and really make them some proud musical statements of her own. These arrangements hang on through most of the record, but are often augmented by these cool vibes that bring in a slight jazzy undercurrent – and titles include the classic "I Hear A Symphony" – plus "Stranger In Paradise", "Unchained Melody", "Without A Song", "A Lover's Concerto", "My World Is Empty Without You", and "He's All I Got". LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove pressing. Cover has discoloration from age on back.)

SyreetaRita Wright Years – Rare Motown 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
Rare early material from one of the hippest singers on 70s Motown – the heavenly Syreeta, best known for her seminal work with Stevie Wonder – heard here in the years before, on a rare single and a huge amount of never-issued tracks! Syreeta first worked for Motown under the name of Rita Wright – but apart from a 1967 single on Gordy, and a handful of compilation tracks in recent years, almost all her work for the label at the time appears here for the first time ever – a massive 18 of the collection's total 24 tracks – offering up a huge look at the early days of this wonderful talent! Even at the start, Syreeta's got a style that's hipper than most – righteous currents that point the way towards the 70s, and set her apart from some of the other female singers on the label – with a vibe that's completely sublime. We're really not sure why these cuts have been hidden for so long – because on any other label, they'd be hit material – especially given that production his handled by giants like Hal Davis, Stevie Wonder, Ashford & Simpson, and the Holland-Dozier-Holland team. One of the coolest sets of female soul you'll buy in a long, long time – with titles that include "Bad Boy", "Ain't I Gonna Win Your Love", "Beware Of A Stranger", "Love Child", "Since You Came Back", "Mind Body & Soul", "May His Love Shine Forever", "Something On My Mind", "That's What He Told Me", "It Don't Mean Nothin To Me", "Give Back The Good Things", "Can You Feel It Babe", "Save The Country", "Hurtin Me", "Love My Lovin Man", and "Where There's A Will There's A Way".

VariousInvictus Club Classics Vol 1 ... CD
Sequel (UK), 1970s. Used ... $5.99
A sparkling collection of funky soul classics from the legendary Invictus family of labels! The titles on here were issued on Invictus, Hot Wax, HDH, and other labels associated with the Holland-Dozier-Holland team – and they're a great mix of uptempo soul, funky vocal numbers, and a few early proto-club tracks! There's a whopping 23 cuts in all – and tracks include "Bar B Q Ribs" by Raynel Wynglas, "Sittin On A Time Bomb" by Lee Charles, "Taster Of The Honey" by The Jones Girls, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, "Can't Get Enough Of You" by Tyrone Edwards, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Jones Brothers, "Crumbs Off The Table" by Laura Lee, "I'm Bugging Your Phone" by The Smith Connection, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "Something New About You" by Silent Majority, and "The Music Box" by Ruth Copeland.

✨✧ Isley BrothersThis Old Heart Of Mine ... LP
Tamla, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Isley Brothers on Motown – a really key step forward for the group, who find a whole new level of soul with help from the Holland Dozier Holland team! There's a warmth here missing from previous Isleys material – that rough edge that was more part of their rocking years, softened a bit to let the vocals really take off with straightforward power – that mix of raw energy and sublime precision they'd explore later on the T-Neck years – helped strongly here by the Motown influence. Titles include the massive hit "This Old Heart Of Mine", plus "Take Some Time Out for Love", "Baby Don't You Do It", "Nowhere To Run", "Put Yourself In My Place", "Seek & You Shall Find", and "Who Could Ever Doubt My Love".

✨✧ Freda PayneReaching Out ... LP
Invictus, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
It's a few years after Freda's big hit "Band of Gold", and she's recording here in a very different mode! The record is produced by Holland-Dozier-Holland, with arrangements by a number of different talents, like McKinley Jackson, Tony Camillo, and Michael Smith – and the overall sound is much more sophisticated than on some of Freda's earlier work. The vocals are especially sharp – quite mature, and almost in a mode that points towards later work by singers like Jean Carn or Marlena Shaw during the late 70s. Includes the nice midtempo groover "We've Gotta Find A Way Back To Love", worth the price of the album alone – plus "Mood For Love", "Reaching Out", "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right", "Mother Misery's Favorite Child", and "Right Back Where I Started From".

✨✧ Glass HouseThanks I Needed That (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The sublime second album from The Glass House – even rarer than the group's first, and an overlooked gem in the Holland-Dozier-Holland treasure box of the early 70s! There's a sweetness here that you don't always find on other H-D-H projects – a touch of harmony soul that really makes the album come off with a great deal of charm, even though there's plenty of Invictus Records force in the grooves – that great post-Motown sound that the label pioneered as the second generation of Detroit soul. Arrangements are by McKinley Jackson and HB Barnum – and the album's filled with great titles that include "Horse & Rider", "House Is Not A Home", "VIP", "Thanks I Needed That", "Don't Let It Rain On Me", and "Giving Up The Ring". CD features three bonus tracks – "Playing Games", "Let It Flow (single)", and the Scherrie Payne solo track "It Ain't The World". CD

✨✧ Dionne WarwickWarner Brothers Recordings (The Complete Warner Brothers Singles/We Need To Go Back – The Unissued Warner Brothers Masters) ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great double-pack – featuring two sweet collections of work from Dionne Warwick! First up is The Complete Warner Brothers Singles – a long-overdue anthology of Dionne Warwick's 70s Warner Bros singles – really great music that doesn't always get its proper due! This is a terrific snapshot of a somewhat overlooked era for Dionne – working in a number of stylistic modes – and by pulling together the singles, this set has some of her most immediately appealing work of the decade. The highlights include some of the best of her later collaborations with Bacharach and David – and her surprising and rewarding turns into more soul-centric productions with Thom Bell and Holland-Dozier-Holland – that shift into bolder 70s soul that really made the Warner years a nice change from her early days! Titles include "If We Only Had Love", "Close To You", "I Think You Need Love", "(I'm Just) Being Myself", "Gonna Need Me", "Sure Thing", "Once You Hit The Road", "His House And Me", "Ronnie Lee", "I Didn't Mean To Love You", "He's Not For You", "Do I Have To Cry", and "Don't Ever Take Your Love Away". Next is We Need To Go Back – wonderful work from Dionne Warwick's years at Warner Brothers records – an amazing batch of unissued tracks that are every bit as great as any of the full albums or singles that Dionne issued with the label! The quality here is all completely top-shelf – no novelty numbers, studio filler, or other sort of junk – just really great material that has Dionne singing at her 70s best – really moving past the familiar sounds of the Scepter years, yet losing none of her poise, grace, and soulful sense of class – thanks to work from producers who include Holland Dozier Holland, Ashford & Simpson, Thom Bell, Jerry Ragavoy, and even Burt Bacharach too. The set's more like a "lost" Dionne Warwick album than anything else – of the sort that makes it an instant standout in her catalog – and titles include "It Hurts Me So", "We Need To Go Back", "Too Far Out Of Reach", "I Found Someone Else", "Am I Too Late", "Keep Me Warm", "Room Enough", "Plastic City", "Meant To Be", "One Last Memory", and "You Are The Sunlight I Am The Moon".
