• 86 Track 3-CD set of rare and collectable early Detroit Soul productions, celebrating some of the more obscure recordings from the Motor City.

• Boasts seven previously unissued recordings and over 20 tracks new to CD!

• Coincides with the release of Kathryn Bigelow’s much-anticipated new film, Detroit, inspired by the riots of 1967 within the city’s black community.

• Classic recordings from the vaults of Lu Pine, Sidra, Impact and other highly regarded Detroit labels of the 60s.

• Includes some of the earliest recordings of Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd and Bettye LaVette, as well as future Motown stars The Supremes (as The Primettes), Marv Johnson, The Contours and Brian Holland.

• Deluxe 36 page booklet with fully detailed historical notes, which tell an alternative history of black music out of Detroit to that of the more familiar Motown.

• Includes the most influential early soul single ‘I Found A Love’, as well as a host of Northern Soul classics by the likes of Mr. Flood’s Party, Just Brothers, The Precisions, Gwen Owens, The Falcons and Fork In The Road.
