Press Release :
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. Raw breaks and beats from Jake Wade and The Soul Searchers sit next to the melancholic charm of vocalist Dee Edwards, while intergalactic big band funk from Wendell Harrison drops down next to the freaky synth-driven soul of Aged In Harmony. Almost all these records have never been heard on CD. This is volume one in a comprehensive series, and it features detailed liner notes illustrated with never before seen images from the era.
