Includes fantastically rare soul and funk music from Michigan, this is the true underground sound from the Motown era.
Detroit was the epicenter for the soulful revolution the world knows as Motown. However, Detroit and the surrounding cities making up Michigan were also home to an unparalleled underground music scene that supported, propelled and fed off the Motown machine. Included here are absolute rarities from The Black Aces of Soul and the Eyes of Ebony next to now funk classics by The Detroit Sex Machines. Almost all of these records have never been heard on CD, and you’d have to mortgage your house to buy all the originals. Raw breaks and beats from Jake Wade and the Soul Searchers sit next to the melancholic charm of vocalist Dee Edwards, inter galactic big band funk from Wendell Harrison drops down next to freaky synth-driven soul of Aged In Harmony.
Features detailed liner notes illustrated with never-been-seen-before images from the era.
