8th Day8th Day ... LP
Invictus, 1971. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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

Four TopsFour Tops ... LP
Motown, 1964. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Glass HouseInside The Glass House (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD features three bonus tracks too – "Bad Bill Of Goods", "He's In My Life", and "I Can't Be You". CD

Glass HouseThanks I Needed That (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
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

General JohnsonGenerally Speaking (Japanese pressing with bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
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 – but that's OK with us, because the tunes are so great. 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". 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 ... $13.99
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".

MiraclesMiracles Doin Mickey's Monkey ... LP
Motown, 1963. Very Good ... $49.99
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.)

New Play with Ruth CopelandA Gift Of Me/Music Box ... 7-inch
Invictus, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $3.99
Not as hard and funky as some of Ruth Copeland's other work for Invictus – more in a sweet rock mode that has some touches of soul. Still, Holland-Dozier-Holland produced – so overall, the tracks are pretty nice. 7-inch, Vinyl record

SupremesI Hear A Symphony ... LP
Motown, 1966. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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".

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".

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 ... $29.99 32.98
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".

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!

The tunes here go past the obvious hits, and includes some great album tracks and singles from the label – plus good notes on the HDH sound and its artists. Titles include "Too Many Cooks" and "Rocks In My Head" by 8th Day, "Guess Who I Saw Today" and "I Need It Just As Bad As You" by Laura Lee, "Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed" by 100 Proof, "Love On Borrowed time" by Freda Payne, "I Shall Not Be Moved" by Barrino Brothers, "Stealing Moments" by Glass House, "Everybody's Tippin" by Danny Woods, and "Why Don't You Stay" by Flaming Ember.

✨✧ Chairmen Of The BoardIn Session ... LP
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

✨✧ Ronn MatlockLove City ... LP
Cotillion, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The one and only album from Detroit underground legend Ronn Matlock – but a modern soul classic through and through! By the time of this late 70s set, Matlock had spent nearly a decade working under Motor Town legends like Norman Whitfield and the Holland-Dozier-Holland team – and he emerges here fully formed as a wonderful soul songwriter with a really mature approach to his music! The album's more mellow soul than the uptempo disco you might expect for the time – and Matlock's very much in the spirit of Leroy Hutson or Leon Ware here – hitting gentle grooves that are never too sleepy, and which come off with a really mature, sophisticated feel. Production and arrangements are by Michael Stokes, but we're guessing that it's Matlock's talents that are still the main guiding light on the set – and titles include the sublime stepper "I Can't Forget About You", plus "Take Me to the Top (Of Your Mountain)", ""Back Street", and "You Got the Best of Me".

✨✧ Jackson 5ABC ... LP
Motown, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A seminal step forward for this legendary group – easily one of the greatest albums they ever cut! With ABC, the Jacksons are expanding their sound with the club-oriented grooves of the time – using Holland, Dozier, and Holland on many cuts, trying for a similar soaring groove as some of the trio's work on their own Invictus label. The move's actually a great one – as the maturing group has a strong adult harmony sound, the one that they would lean on more heavily during their years as The Jacksons, and which calls for much smoother arrangements than before. The record's got a surprisingly righteous, joyous sort of sound – and titles include "The Love You Save", "ABC", "One More Chance", "Never Had A Dream Come True", "I'll Bet You", "I Found That Girl", "La-La Means I Love You", "2-4-6-8", and "The You Folks".

Backbeats (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky cuts that have gotten plenty of spins in recent years – the kind of great grooves that were first dug up by the sampling crowd, but which have also gone onto have a rich new life in the hands of DJs around the globe! Some of the tracks here were hits back in the day, then fell into obscurity – others were almost-rans that have probably gotten even more attention in the past decade or two than they did back in the 70s – and together, all the work here sounds totally great – an overflowing bounty of rare funky numbers, all served up at one mighty nice price! Titles include "Seeing You Through The Eyes Of A Blindman" by Satisfaction Unlimited, "Ain't No Time Fa Nothing" by The Futures, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Jean Carn, "Work To Do" by Average White Band, "Ali Shuffle" by Alvin Cash, "Shake A Leg" by Jackie Wilson, "Sittin On A Time Bomb" by Honey cone, "You Can't Have My Love" by The Jones Girls, "Picnic In The Park" by MFSB, "Don't Leave Me (inst)" by Holland Dozier Holland, and "That's All A Part Of Loving" by Strutt.

✨✧ 8th DayI Gotta Get Home (Can't Let My Baby Get Lonely) (Japanese pressing with bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nicely complicated little record – and one of the funkiest albums on the legendary Invictus label! 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 – and they weren't just a studio project, as they included some wonderful talents that could make some great music when they wanted to! One of these was the amazing 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! CD features the bonus tracks "Just As Long (single)", "I'm Worried (single)", "It's Instrumental To Be Free", and "You Made Me Over". CD

✨✧ Freda PayneReaching Out ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... 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".
