Elemental Music, together with Universal Music Group, present the best selection of 70 s R&B, Soul and Funk out of print titles from the vaults of classic labels such as Tamla-Motown, Cadet and Mercury, among others. Collector's Reissues in gatefold mini-LP sleeve with printed inner sleeve, digitally remastered, limited edition. Elemental Music proudly announces the ultimate edition of one of the most acclaimed records in the history of Soul music: People ... Hold On, the second album by former Temptations vocalist Eddie Kendricks which was originally released in the Spring of 1972 on the Tamla imprint of Motown Records. This sensational release was a concept album dedicated to black America, addressing the truth of African-American life and aspiration in this time of social and personal change. The floor-shaking rhythmic builds and wild, repeated emotional flights of 'Girl, You Need a Change of Mind' are frequently cited as the single ground-breaking model for the breaks and changes of disco.

He signed to Motowns sister label, Tamla, and his first album, All By Myself, was well received, but it wasn’t until his second, People..Hold On, that Kendricks found his new groove, one that still showcased his vocal style but which covered more than just the 3 minute love song (although they are still in evidence). Taken as a whole, the album is quality ‘70’s Soul, with several high points which have stood the test of time, not least “Girl You Need a Change of Mind” which templated Kendrick later success with “Keep on Truckin” and others. The title track’s overtly political message emphasises how far the Motown organisation has come from their initial reluctance to embrace the Civil Rights movement in their music, as does “Someday We’ll Have a Better World” but both feature Kendricks at his vocal best. No Kendricks album would be complete without love songs, though and here, my favourite is “Eddie’s Love” a superb mid tempo number.
Eddie would go on to greater success but this album can be regarded as arguably his best, and also significant as an indicator of the direction of travel for Motown and Soul music in general. This reissue is, I believe the first time this album has been available as a stand alone release - previously it was only as part of the Motown Solo albums sets ( which are still available incidentally) Recommended for lovers of Soul music everywhere
