Product Description

CD Description

* Edsel presents the fourth set of re-releases from the Holland-Dozier-Holland catalogue of recordings, originally issued on the Invictus and Hot Wax labels. Set up by the famed songwriting team after they left Motown, this important catalogue features albums by Chairmen Of The Board, Freda Payne, Parliament, Lamont Dozier, Laura Lee, the Honey Cone, Ruth Copeland and many more.
* Although the individual contents of these two Greatest Hits albums have been reissued many times in the ensuing years, they have never been reissued as albums until now. Edsel is delighted to augment the two original track listings with a selection of sides that represent the whole history of the two labels - some of which were actually as big as the hits that featured on the original long playing vinyl albums.
*Stand-out songs amongst the 48 tracks include the # 1 worldwide hit, Freda Payne's "Band Of Gold", Chairmen Of The Board's "Give Me Just A Little More Time" and "Everything's Tuesday", The Honey Cone's US # 1 "Want Ads".
* The booklet is fully annotated by HDH authority Tony Rounce, and features many rare singles labels.

5.0 out of 5 stars MEATY BEATY BIG AND FUNKY 1 Dec 2010
50 (ok 48 then) of priceless soul, funk, psychedelic groovesome belters from the pens of (mainly) Holland Dozier & Holland-the engine room of Motown records before going out on their own. Many of these tunes have permeated popular musics' psyche. Stick this on and prepare to eh 'get down' This music covers all the bases.

3.0 out of 5 stars Invictus/Hotwax -- Not So Hot 16 July 2010
By Eugene Bentley - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
About 20 years ago I found the Hot Wax portion on LP vinyl in a budget I was then thrilled when I saw it released on cd coupled with the Invictus companion album WITH bonus tracks. The Invictus portion was pretty good although they used the mono versions on some of the hits like 8th Day's 'She's Not Just Another Woman'. Freda Payne's are all in stereo as well as Chairmen Of the Board's. I didn't own the Invictus L.P. so I can't judge whether those are the exact versions used.
However, the Hot Wax portion was deeply disappointing. The original LP was entirely in stereo and the cd version is not. While the Honeycone tracks were intact and in stereo they used the mono single edit of 100 Proof Aged In Soul's 'Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed' which cuts it a couple of minutes short. The original Hot Wax album used the expanded stereo version. They also used the mono version of Silent Majority's 'Frightened Girl' (which was a pleasant obscurity I came to love on the original LP).
The bonus tracks are moderate to good but do not make up for the previous transgressions. I was ready to shell out money for more of the Invictus and Hot wax reissues, but since Edsel did the shoddy work herein I'm not so sure. They may have used the single versions even on the "complete" albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars HOT STUFF! 24 Jan 2013
By Jukebox Dave - Published on Amazon.com
INVICTUS GREATEST HITS/HOT WAX GREATEST HITS: After splitting from MOTOWN over a royalty dispute with BERRY GORDY, the prolific songwriting team HOLLAND/DOZIER/HOLLAND, who penned the lion's share of classics for THE SUPREMES and THE FOUR TOPS, formed INVICTUS/HOT WAX for their own sublime series of classics. Sassy female trio HONEY CONE's WANT ADS, the gruffly funky CHAIRMEN OF THE BOARD's GIVE ME JUST A LITTLE MORE TIME, and FREDA PAYNE's sparkling BAND OF GOLD were just the best known of their releases; THE FLAMING EMBER's gritty WESTBOUND #9 was the most soulful hit by a white group since RARE EARTH's GET READY, LAURA LEE's scathing social statement RIP OFF crackled with raw energy, and the anonymous lineups of 100 PROOF (AGED IN SOUL) and 8th DAY pumped out solid soul-burners SOMEBODY'S BEEN SLEEPIN' IN MY BAD and SHE'S NOT JUST ANOTHER WOMAN. Most of these mini-classics were written by CHAIRMEN OF THE BOARD leader GENERAL JOHNSON or H/D/H (under aliases), and while the HOT WAX/INVICTUS reign was criminally brief, this double disc collection is a great way to catch up on some of the early seventies' most sanctifying AM radio moments.

Grew up listening to this music ("CKLW, The Motor Cityyyy") Most people outside the motor city won't know most of the songs. Notably missing: Honey Cone's "One Monkey..." Only negative on this set, not enough to take it down a star.
5.0 out of 5 stars Super-cool forgotten hits that go beyond the original Motown sound 24 Mar 2013
By J. Bunte - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm not a big Motown-type person, but i heard this record being played on the local college radio station by a student (KSPC 88.7 in Claremont, California), and thought, wow, i actually want to buy this! so i did, and i'm glad - it's really a neat collection of mostly forgotten hits created by many of the top talent at Motown who left to found this independent label. The liner notes are great; i learned a lot! and there's a tremendous amount of music on the two-CD set. If you like Motown, definitely add this to your music collection.
