Product Description

Motown’s legendary songwriting/production team, Holland-Dozier-Holland, left the fold in 1967, to establish their own Invictus/Hot Wax group of labels. They had worldwide hits with their flagship act, Chairmen Of The Board, debuted the first album by Parliament, as well as scoring a UK #1 with Freda Payne’s ‘Band of Gold. Chairmen Of The Board were unusual at the time, with all the group members being featured vocalists in its line-up. This 9CD, 97-track anthology includes Chairmen Of The Board’s four studio albums for Invictus, as well as the Invictus solo albums released by General Johnson, Danny Woods and Harrison Kennedy. The two bonus discs include alternate versions, non-album singles and selected mixes, including two Tom Moulton remixes of their two biggest UK hits ‘Give Me Just A Little More Time’ and ‘(You’ve Got Me) Dangling On A String’, which were first released in 2014. The 36-page booklet includes a 6,500+ word liner note by Dean Rudland.

Chairmen of the Board, HDH's premiere all-male group of their post-Motown era, includes all of their Invictus albums and non-album tracks, PLUS the single mix of "Come on in and Dance" issued on ICA Records (the 12" mix is unfortunately NOT included). This collection also includes the individual singers' (General Johnson, Danny Woods & Harrison Kennedy) solo album releases (Eddie Custis was the only one that did not have a solo album). A superb collection of material for HDH and Chairmen of the Board fans. Highly recommended!

Invictus: the label known for it's stunning soul legends, such as Freda Payne and Chairmen of the Board. General (Norman) Johnson, lead singer, sounds so much like Levi Stubbs of The Four Tops, you begin to wonder where the Motown Sound came from, especially when listening to the tracklist from his album Generally Speaking, one of nine fantastic albums in this collection.

When ordering this, I thought it was a compilation of Invictus artists. Look no further than Amazon for that. I saw it last night as an upcoming release! If you love Old Soul labels, make sure to look it up.

Johnson's Everything Is Tuesday is a long forgotten, and much-loved song I haven't heard played since the 60s, when it was first released for airplay. It's on the Generally Speaking tracklist. There's so much stuff on these 9 albums, I'm so grateful not to have rejected it as a selection when I realised what I'd done. The music is just beautiful.

Harrison Kennedy is featured on his own album, as is Danny Woods. This is the perfect selection for late night listening, when you can get your own mitts on the stereo, after everyone else has crept off to bed!

This is a cracking release that includes the complete albums that the band put out plus solo members albums which make it an exceptional package. My musical taste is quite varied as you will see if you have read my previous reviews. Chairmen were a fabulous band that released strong albums and were successful in Soul's heyday. Great value for money and with 9 cds and an excellent booklet- thanks to the label for a very fan friendly package.

Ridiculously cheap compilation of The Chairmen of the Board's Invictus recordings. It's a decent companion to the "Holland Dozier Holland Complete 45s" if you feel like exploring this particular artist further.
Very pleased with it and, at this price (£17 odd for 9 CDs when I got it), it's virtually being given away

Incredible value for money. Been listening to albums at work, great happy music. If you're into Motown, you can't go wrong with this. Holland and dozier influence shines throughout!
