8th Day8th Day ... LP LP format
Invictus, 1971. Very Good ... $29.99
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
(Original pressing. Cover has some moderate wear, clear tape and a bit of splitting on the bottom seam, and some wrinkling and light stains along part of the bottom.)

8th DayI Gotta Get Home (Can't Let My Baby Get Lonely) ... LP LP format
Invictus, 1973. Very Good- ... $24.99
A bit confused at points, but one of the funkiest albums on Invictus! The 8th Day group was a loosely conceived batch of Detroit soul talents designed to cash in on a concept of the Holland-Dozier-Holland team – but fortunately, they also included some wonderful talents that could make some great music when they wanted to. One of these was the vastly under-discovered Detroit organist Lyman Woodard –who contributed the fantastic track "Cheba" to the album, an incredible organ groover that's unlike anything you've ever heard, rolling on with this pinched Hammond sound over congas, all-instrumental, and completely seductive! Another was Melvin Davis, who had recorded the song "Good Book" as a solo artist – but which was released here as if it was by the group. There's also a great guitarist in the group – unnamed due to the lack of liner notes – but who really shines on the funky tracks "Anythang", "Rocks In My Head", and "Heaven Is There To Guide Us", all with a fuzzed-out Detroit 70s groove! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, some stains, pen on the back, a mostly split bottom seam, and some splitting on the other seams, with some pieces of tape along the top.)

Harrison KennedyHypnotic Music ... CD CD format
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. Used ... $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".

New Eloise LawsLove Factory – The Invictus Sessions ... CD CD format
Invictus/Sequel (UK), 1970s. Used ... $14.99
The first-ever compilation of the legendary Invictus work by this great 70s soul diva! Eloise was the lesser-known sister of Ronnie, Hubert, and Debra Laws – and during the mid 70s she recorded her best work at the Invictus label with the Holland-Dozier-Holland team. This CD features 15 great tracks from those years, including her whole Ain't It Good Feeling Good LP, plus bonus tracks. The CD features the northern soul killer "Love Factory", plus nice ones like "Love Goes Deeper Than That" (12 inch mix), "Ain't It Good Feeling Good", "Where Did We Go Wrong", "Touch Me", "Stay With Me", and "Put A Little Love Into It" (12 inch mix).

New Miracles, Martha & The Vandellas, & OthersNothing But A Man – Original Soundtrack ... CD CD format
Motown, 1965. Used ... $6.99
Strange little soundtrack to a film that starred Ivan Dixon and Abbey Lincoln. The music on the album isn't new for the film – but it is a tasty batch of Motown tracks, put together by the producers of the record because the music "had its original public acceptance as the popular recorded music of the period and climate surrounding the scene of the action [of the film]." Titles icnlude "Mickey's Monkey", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "I'll Try Something New", and "That's The Way I Feel" by The Miracles; "Fingertips Part 2" by Stevie Wonder; "Way Over There" by The Marvelettes; "Bye Bye Baby" by Mary Wells, "Come On Home" by Holland & Dozier; and "Love Is Like A Heat Wave" by Martha & The Vandellas.

Paul ParrishForest Of My Mind (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Music Factory/Now Sounds (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
A pretty incredible bit of late 60s psych pop by singer-songwriter Paul Parrish – and with quite a bit of funk in the mix, thanks in no small part to the Detroit session players – with arrangements by Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey! Paul Parrish never became a household name, but he's hugely talented – with a big vocal presence here, and he wrote most of the songs himself – save for a couple nicely chosen covers of Lennon-McCartney and Holland-Dozier-Holland gems. The arrangements are fantastic, with swirling strings, jazz funk flute and other adventurous touches. Titles include "English Sparrows", "Suzanne", the trippy "Walking In The Forrest (Of My Mind)", "Tiny Alice", "Morning Train", "Flowers In The Park", "The White Birds (Return To Warm Seas)", "I Can't Help Myself" and more. 2 bonus tracks on this CD version from Now Sounds UK – mono versions of "Walking In The Forrest (Of My Mind)" and "The White Birds (Return To Warm Seas)".

SupremesI Hear A Symphony ... CD CD format
Motown (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
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".

SupremesMore Hits By The Supremes ... CD CD format
Motown (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer from the early days of The Supremes – and way more than you'd guess from the "hits" in the title! The record's not really a roundup of the hit singles already out on 45 – and is actually just an apt title for what the album was destined to be – a stone hit that really put these Motown legends on the map! Production is by the Holland/Dozier/Holland team – with a marvelous wall of sound-style groove that really pushes the vocals forward tremendously – that brilliant all-in Motown mode of the best early years, where the Detroit studio was working overtime to make things sound amazing. Titles include the massive hit "Stop! In The Name Of Love" – but the whole thing's a solid effort with no filler, and other cuts include "I'm In Love Again", "He Holds His Own", "Whisper You Love Me Boy", "The Only Time I'm Happy", "Nothing But Heartaches", "Honey Boy", and "Back In My Arms Again".

VariousBest Of Invictus/Hotwax Vol 2 – Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic ... CD CD format
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Freaky fuzzy soul from the mighty Invictus/Hot Wax records – home to early work by Parliament and a whole host of other great Detroit soul groups too! The grooves here really go past the ordinary – and show the label's love of a heavy bassline or fuzz-drenched guitar – elements borrowed from other parts of the Motor City scene, then reworked into some headier grooves for the 70s by the team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! Lots of the tunes share the same sort of heavy sound and righteous energy you'd find in late Motown work by Norman Whitfield – and titles include "Gimme Shelter" by Ruth Copeland, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, "Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic" by The Politicians, "I Call My Baby Pussycat" by Parliament, "You've Been My Rock" by Warlock, "Everybody's Tippin" by Danny Woods, "Somebody's Been Sleeping" by 100 Proof, and "I Surrendered" by Glass House.

VariousFree Soul Motor City – Hot Wax & Invictus Treasure ... CD CD format
Hot Wax/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
Some of the most upbeat soul of the 70s – a great run of tracks from the Hot Wax and Invictus label – home to the post-Motown efforts of the team of Holland Dozier Holland! The trio created a whole new sort of Detroit groove at the time – a style that was often at its best when grooving – in styles that would be copped by some of the disco generation a few years later, but which have a lot more bite in these earlier recordings – the kind of joyous, spontaneous fire that we love from some of the other titles in the Free Soul series! As with other Free Soul collections, there's a huge amount of music here – 26 tracks clocking in at over 80 minutes – with tracks that include "You Made Me Over" by Melvin Davis, "Touch Me Jesus" by The Glass House, "All We Need Is Understanding" by Chairmen Of The Board, "I Shall Not Be Moved" by Freda Payne, "Why Can't We Be Lovers" by Lamont Dozier, "Mama's Little Baby" by Brotherly Love, "Ain't It Good Feelin Good" by Eloise Laws, and "Frightened Girl" by Silent Majority.

VariousMusic Merchant – The Complete Singles Collection ... CD CD format
Music Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99
The complete singles of the mighty Music Merchant label – home to some really great work from the larger Holland-Dozier-Holland empire of 70s soul! Like work on their bigger labels Invictus and Hot Wax, the tunes here all have the positive, powerful vibe that we love from HDH – a new 70s reworking of Detroit soul, but with a deeper vibe overall – and one that goes for a progressive style that's really wonderful! Plus, most of the Music Merchant artists are a bit more obscure than those on the other labels – which means that this collection is stuffed with under-discovered 70s soul gems. 2CD set features 29 tracks that include "Let Love Grow" and "Some Quiet Place" by Brenda Holloway, "Tears Ago" and "Slice Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "Come Back" and "You're The Only Bargain I've Got" by The Jones Girls, "Bingo" and "Mama's Little Baby" by Brotherly Love, "You've Been My Rock" by Warlock, "Big Train" by Sweet Rock, "Your Love Controls Me" by Jones Girls, "Tighten Him Up" and "You Made Me An Offer I Can't Refuse" by Eloise Laws, "The Day You Leave" and "I'm Bugging Your Phone (parts 1 & 2)" by Smith Connection, "Bar-B-Q Ribs" by Raynel Wynglass, and "You've Got The Love To Make Me Over" by The Just Brothers.

VariousNorthern Clubbing – Hot Wax & Invictus Dance Floor ... CD CD format
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $21.99
Not Northern Soul of the 60s – but a fresh wave of Detroit soul from the early 70s – all put together by the Holland-Dozier-Holland team who were such a big part of Motown in the decade before! The grooves here all have this rich, upbeat feel that's definitely in the Northern Soul mode – but production is tighter, and backings are often even more powerful – a bold new vibe for the 70s, which packs a hell of a lot of punch into the grooves! Vocals are hip, too – deeper soul than you might hear from the Motown hits – which really brings a meaningful edge to the lyrics. CD features 18 tracks in all – including "Bump Your Lady" by Natural High, "I'm So Glad" by Brian Holland, "That's Love" by The Hi-Lites, "Wanting You" by Earl English, "Sittin On A Time Bomb" by Lee Charles, "You Made Me Over" by Melvin Davis, "Colors Of My Love" by Silent Majority, "Women's Love Rights" by Laura Lee, "Trapped In A Love" by The Barrino Brothers, and "Crumbs Off The Table" by The 8th Day.

Hot Wax/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $21.99
Smooth grooves from the Hot Wax and Invictus labels – part of the Holland Dozier Holland imprint that was really making some new Detroit magic in early 70s soul! The collection here focuses on some of the overlooked gems in the labels' catalogs – midtempo numbers that were sometimes overlooked next to the bigger HDH hits, but which are some of our favorite tracks from the imprints – often as forward-thinking and sophisticated as the best modern soul coming from Chicago or Philly at the time! The CD's overflowing with obscure gems – including "I'm Worried" by Melvin Davis, "VIP" by Scherrie Payne, "Cheba" by The 8th Day, "Deeper & Deeper" by Freda Payne, "Don't Leave Me Starvin For Your Love" by Brian Holland, "Something New About You" by Silent Majority, "Ain't It Good Feelin Good" by Eloise Laws, "Hey There Lonely Girl" by The Glass House, and "A Song For You" by The Politicians.

New Chairmen Of The BoardIn Session ... LP LP format
Invictus, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer album by the Chairmen of the Board! The record's their second – and although the "In Session" title, photos on the front, and liner notes all make it appear to be a live album, it's actually a studio session, with the same great Holland-Dozier-Holland production as the first! The album includes an amazing track called "All We Need Is Understanding", a jaunty groover with this funky organ at the beginning, and some killer vocals by General Johnson. It's one of the group's best tracks ever – and the record has plenty of other nice ones – like "Pay To The Piper", "Hanging On To A Memory", "When Will She Tell Me She Needs Me", and "Chairmen Of The Board". Plus, the record includes their great version of "Patches", which they wrote for Clarence Carter – already on their first album, but featured here again for some strange reason! Who cares, though – because we love the track! LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first full album from The Four Tops – and a tremendous showcase for their wonderful harmony vocals! The group has an organic quality that's wonderful enough on its own – one of the tightest, most fully-formed of all the Motown groups – but they get pushed strongly over the top here with some sublime Holland/Dozier production – stepping rhythms, swirling strings, and just the right sort of instrumentation to set fire to the legendary lead vocals of Levi Stubbs! There's a few hits on the record, and some great lesser-known gems too – and titles include the classic "Baby I Need Your Loving", plus "Without The One You Love", "Call On Me", "Sad Souvenirs", "Where Did You Go", "Tea House In China Town", "Left With A Broken Heart", "Your Love Is Amazing", and "Ask The Lonely".

Hot Wax, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A standout set from the great Laura Lee – a deep soul singer with power to rival the greatness of Aretha Franklin, but one who's also got a funkier punch to her music too! The album's a great blend of late 60s female southern and tight 70s bad sister funk – a style that's a bit like that of Gwen McCrae at her early best, but handled here with a fuller vibe that's right in keeping with the best modes of the Invictus/Hot Wax scene from the Holland Dozier Holland team! Vocals are wonderful throughout – and the album features the breakbeat classic "Crumbs Off The Table" – plus "Guess Who I Saw Today", "If I'm Good Enough To Love (I'm Good Enough To Marry)", "Rip Off", "You've Got To Save Me", and "Workin & Lovin Together".

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

New Freda PayneContact ... LP LP format
Invictus, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally great album from Freda Payne – a set that moves strongly past her initial early hits for the Holland Dozier Holland team, into a realm that's even more sophisticated overall! There's a full approach here that's really wonderful – almost a higher-concept version of soul music, yet still with all the punch that Payne packed on her key singles from the first album! Strings and larger arrangements really round out the sound in a very unique way – but the whole thing's still plenty soulful all the way through, with a righteous undercurrent that definitely lives up to the HDH legacy – thanks to arrangements from McKinley Jackson and HB Barnum. Freda's vocals are wonderful – even more powerful than before – and titles include "I'm Not Getting Any Better", "The Road We Didn't Take", "Odds & Ends", "I Shall Not Be Moved", "Mama's Gone", "Suddenly It's Yesterday", "You Brought The Joy", and "You've Got To Love Somebody (Let It Be Me)".

New Jimmy RuffinRuff 'N Ready ... CD CD format
SOUL/Motown, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous little album from Jimmy Ruffin – as "ruff" as the title implies, with a much deeper groove than you might find from other Motown releases at the time! The style here is really wonderful – rich, heartfelt vocals from Jimmy that easily match the best of the Detroit underground of the time – a style that's a bit like Darrell Banks or JJ Barnes, with echoes of the southern sound of the 60s – but produced to perfection with all the best that Motown could muster! Jimmy gets lots of heavy help from Norman Whitfield – who produced about half the tracks on the set, and gives Ruffin a sound that's somewhere between his righteous soul with the Temptations, and the best Motown grooves of his earlier work for the label. Other production is by Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier, William Weatherspoon & James Dean, and Richard Morris – all of whom follow Whitfield's lead nicely – and although the album's got few runaway hits, it's a rock-solid effort throughout – just the kind of album that makes us love the Motown full-length scene even more than the label's singles! Titles include "Lonely Lonely Man Am I", "It's Wonderful (To Be Loved By You)", "Don't Let Him Take Your Love From Me", "Everybody Needs Love", "Sad & Lonesome Feeling", "Love Gives Love Takes Away", and "Farewell Is A Lonely Sound".
