Product Description

* The latest in Ace / Kent's series of Motown collections is a 2CD set comprising the complete recordings of Eddie Holland, which joins the recent Satintones, Contours, Patrice Holloway and Marv Johnson compilations.

* As a member of the celebrated Holland-Dozier-Holland team, Eddie Holland is best-known as one of the top songwriters of the 1960s. No mean vocalist either, he was a recording artist in his own right, before withdrawing from the spotlight to concentrate on penning hits for the Supremes, Four Tops and many of the other leading lights of Motown.

* Disc One comprises the A and B-sides of each of the 15 singles he released on the Mercury, Kudo, Tamla, United Artists and Motown labels between 1958 and 1964. Of the 25 tracks on Disc Two, 18 are previously unissued masters from the Motown vaults, among them titles written by Berry Gordy, Smokey Robinson, Norman Whitfield and, of course, Holland-Dozier-Holland.

* Compiled and annotated by noted Motown archivist Keith Hughes, and fully authorised by Motown HQ in the USA, the set comes with an impressive booklet featuring an exclusive interview with Eddie Holland and a plethora of rare illustrations.

At last, the complete recordings of Eddie Holland are available on a double CD. Eddie recorded some astounding singles on Motown and all of them are present in this set. Many of the songs were recorded later by other Motown artists, so some of the tracks will be more familiar by The Isley Brothers, Martha & The Vandellas, Kim Weston, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, and others.

The booklet is stuffed with the most amazing illustrations. I've lost count of the number of old trade advertisements, many of which I was unaware of. It's a huge 28 pages long booklet, with track by track notes and an amazing essay. The essay is built around fresh interviews with Eddie. I don't recall reading much about Eddie's solo career before, so we gain a wealth of Motown history with many details which will be new to Motown fans.

The second disc, the "rare and unreleased" tracks, has been a revelation. The most important thing is that Eddie Holland is a very good singer indeed. He may have started sounding a little like Jackie Wilson, but he soon developed an impressive sound and style of his own.

It's interesting to note that the famed team of HDH are the sole composers of just five tracks on each disc (that's just 9 tracks in total, as LEAVING HERE is on both in mono and stereo versions). The "new" HDH tracks are TOO LATE TO CRY, PRETTY LITTLE ANGEL FACE, and I LIKE EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU ( re-tread of TOO LATE TO CRY, recorded 15 months later). A good deal of the songs on the second disc are unfinished recordings, rough demos, or even polished demos (which sound like official recordings to me). Fortunately, this doesn't mean the tracks are poor or uninteresting.

I knew only one 'Eddie Holland' track before buying this compilation and what a great two disc compilation it is. It comes with a 28 page colour booklet which is packed with label scans, pics and track information.

Disc 1: The Singles - A & B sides (Mercury/Kudo/UA/Motown) 1958-64. There's alot of great tracks on this disc mostly uptempo and midtempo sides (some sounding very Jackie Wilson(esque) and on one or two songs like Sam Cooke). Barring the first four tentative sides the quality never drops below 7 or 8/10. Some are fantastic - 'Magic Mirror', 'Jamie', 'I'm on the outside looking in' and 'I couldn't cry if I wanted'. There is no real filler here only a couple of tracks that aren't to my taste. Fantastic. (78.16 mins).

Disc 2: Rare & Unissued (Mercury/Motown). My, my, my, how wasn't 'Day dreamer' released at all by Motown (I've played it 7 times in a row whilst writing this review - it's outstanding) it should have been a huge hit. There are others that catch the ear 'Love is what you make it', 'Twin bother' (2nd version), 'Happy go lucky' and the great 'Too late to cry'. . This disc is more patchy than the first disc but overall still good. (66.06 mins).

Overall, a great compilation. Although i've given it 5 stars, its more like 4.5 stars. Treat yourself and buy it.

This has to be the best compilation of 2012 even tho' it's only early February. If you're a fan of early Motown, then it's the best compilation for a long, long time. A Jackie Wilson(esque)singer that deserves more recognition than he has done, up to now anyway. Always revered as part of the great songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland, surely when people hear this CD, the word will spread about Eddie Holland as a wonderful singer as well. Some of the unreleased stuff is amazing and is testament to how strong the songs Motown were putting out at the time really must've been. Please treat yourself. Go out and buy this CD. Let's add Eddie Holland's name to the oft lauded genius singers associated with the wonderous Tamla Motown label.
