6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mr. M. D. Tiller on 19 Mar. 2010
Format: Audio CD
The Glass House is now chiefly remembered as the training ground for the singing and writng talents of the last lead singer of The Supremes, Scherrie Payne. They were one of the first groups produced by Holland-Dozier-Holland on their own label, Invictus, after their litigous parting with Motown in the late 60s as hitmakers for The Supremes. This is the third Glass House compilation to come out and has the most tracks, with the addition of two tracks missing from the last compilation (1999's "Crumbs Off The Table: The Invictus Sessions"): "It Ain't The World" a B side used as Scherrie's first single and the single version of the track used as Ty Hunter's solo single "Let It Flow" (both are by the group). However it misses a track included in the first compilation (1992's "The Best Of The Glass House"): the Scherrie Payne penned "The Fox" which was previously unreleased. And what about Scherrie's unreleased version of "Want Ads"? The usurping of which by Edna Wright's "Honey Cone" is related in the liner notes of all three collections. Yet does anybody bother to try and unearth it while they're there? No!

Remastered by PETER RYNSTEN at TALL ORDER, the sound quality is blisteringly good - alive and jumping out of your speakers with no real compression. The 20-page booklet has very detailed liner notes by soul expert TONY ROUNCE who also provides photos of those rare 7" singles - it's brilliantly informative and researched with both affection and care (his top class work features on most of Edsel's soul releases).

The Glass House had two uniquely great lead singers, Tyrone "Ty" Hunter and Scherrie Payne (sister of Freda Payne and later a member of The Supremes) who often shared duet vocals. The music is catchy H-D-H soul, bright, poppy and aimed squarely at the charts and your feet. Highlights are many as one infectious tune follows another - the lovely "If It Ain't Love (It Don't Matter)" is typical - misery in an upbeat way (lyrics above). Even the religious message songs are excellent especially "Heaven Is There To Guide Us" which sounds not unlike The Chi-Lites at their best.

It's an embarrassment of soul riches really - and Edsel are to be praised for releasing it and presenting it in such a top way. Ace stuff and heartily recommended (even as a pricey import).

nice, good, late 'sixties and early 'seventies detroit soul 18 Sept. 2010
By dino's takes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
for me, a stroll down memory lane. a serendipitously organized singing group, including sherrie payne, sister of freda payne. the tune, "look what we,ve done to love", a truly beautiful tune. also, "playing games", oh yeah. very good "thoroughbred" soulful singing.

High Energy Transfer! 28 Sept. 2013
By rayalen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Glass House delivers these songs with intensity and emotion that reaches out from the discs and grabs me. They have the ability to make me feel involved in each song as though it was a live presentation. Glass House had enough versatility to move from soul, funk, pop, and r&b effortlessly. Due to the excellent production and arranging throughout this two disc set, I can find no fault at all. The rhythm section is solid with the addition of a horn section or string section on selected tracks. I was only familiar with "Look What We've Done To Love" and "If It Ain't Love (It Don't Matter), so the rest of the selections are new to me. This is another group that fell beneath my Motown radar. I am pleased that Edsel Records reissued "Inside The Glass House" and I say to them "Thanks I Needed That".

Glass House HDH Fans 6 May 2013
By Reginald Tisdale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I been collecting the HDH Invictus/Hot Wax label releases for years. This contains Freda Payne's little sister Scherrie's better work than what I can find on her later work at Motown with the Supremes.
THE GLASS HOUSE 2 CD SET IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF SEVENTIES SOUL!!! 23 July 2014
By Mr. Music - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Scherrie Payne, Ty Hunter, and Darlene Love and the Blossoms are all found at their best on this CD. The song variety is super. The production works very well. All of the vocals and the instrumentals shine with excellent sound quality. This is a must have for all serious collectors. It is absolutely fantastic!!!
