Product Description

Product Description

Edwin Starr hailed from Nashville, Tennessee and is best remembered for his rasping Vietnam protest song War from 1970. After a stint as vocalist for Bill Doggetts touring band Starr was able to secure a solo recording deal with Detroit's Ric-Tic Records in 1965 and immediately gained chart success with his self- penned hit Agent Double-O-Soul (R&B #8/Pop #21). More Ric-Tic hits followed before Berry Gordy bought out Starr's contract in 1967 and took him and his music to the fabled Motown imprint, making the James Brown and Stax influenced singer the rawest vocalist on the celebrated label. Soul Master was Starr's debut album and was released on Motown's Gordy imprint in 1968. With soul music in the 60's, and especially with Motown, the emphasis was on singles, so the album did not chart but does boast a number of R&B hit singles. These include the aforementioned Agent Double-O-Soul and Starr's other top ten Ric-Tic release, 1966's Stop Her On Sight (S.O.S) (R&B #9/Pop #48/UK #35), as well as Headline News (Pop #84). Two more singles, issued on Gordy, charted in the US during the same year as the album release. These were I Am The Man For You Baby (R&B #45/Pop #112) and Way Over There (Pop #119).

This was Edwin's first album which was released by Motown in 1968. What is truly amazing here though is the complete collection of 17 (!!!) single mixes that make up the bonus tracks that run from 1965-1968. A truly amazing package on one of the soul greats! TOTALLY ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!!!

I've been a fan of England's BBR (Big Break Records) as a quality reissue label for years now - but they've outdone themselves on this 29-track beauty. A rare 1968 Motown album on Gordy Records supplemented by a whopping 17 Bonus Tracks – 16 Mono Single Mixes of Rare US 45s on the Ric-Tic Label released around the album and an "Alternate Mix" of "Agent Double-O-Soul" as an added extra. And the whole Northern Soul Dancing Shoes shebang runs to a generous 78 minutes. Here are the masterful details...

Having been waiting for a comprehensive compilation of Edwin's Ric Tic and earlyish Motown recordings to appear (especially as I put off getting his 'Early Classics' disc till it was out of print) I have to say that this was well worth the wait and the inclusion of the mono single versions as bonus tracks makes it doubly welcome in my view. With almost 30 tracks to its credit one can't reasonably grumble at the price either. Well done bbr!

Re-mastered classic soul master album enhanced with all the Ric-Tic early cuts makes this CD release better than the rare in-demand vinyl edition.
