great collection, but not 100% complete,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love And Beauty (Audio CD)
Everyone knows their Motown written and produced tracks (Supremes, Four tops, etc.) and soul lovers will be familiar with their Invictus and Hot wax artists (Freda Payne, Chairmen of the Board). But this is a great collection of some of the tracks Holland Dozier Holland produced and then put out with their own vocals. These items that have been hard to find for many years. "Slippin away" with the sound phasing at the end, and the amazingly soulful "Don't leave me starvin for your love" are my personal favourites.
This CD is better than the single CD album as it includes some B-sides.and instrumental versions. Two things missing for me (hence 4start not 5): The original single mix of "You took me from a world Outside" without the sax, and with a second vocal is this available anywhere on CD or download?) and the instrumental B side of "I'm so glad".
If you like the northern soul, and the HDH invictus recordings, you'll love this.
