    Okay, thanks. I got my albums mixed up while reading this thread. After re-reading I realize it referred to the Stoney & Meatloaf albums.

    I bought the Stoney & Meatloaf album along with both Sunday Funnies, Matrix, Wolfe and a couple other Big Pink reissues fairly cheaply.

    I wish both Rustix albums would be released on cd, plus their rumored 3rd album that's in the vaults, also, along with the Messengers.
    Thank you for the website. I just purchased Sunday Funnies - Benediction, Northern Lights - Vancouver Dreaming, Stoney And Meatloaf, Wolfe, Matrix. I found Poor Boys on Amazon before checking out this site and the Amazon price was much more.

    Yeah, thank you very much for the heads up, Motown1050. I just ordered my CD copy of Stoney & Meatloaf -- a dream that I never thought would come true.

    And you're not alone in your wish that Rustix Rare Earth albums would get a CD release. In fact, I thought I was alone on that one. You are the first and only Motown fan, other than me, who admits to loving their first "Bedlam" album. Every track on that album had "pop hit" stamped all over it. Rustix was from Rochester, NY, where I'm from. I couldn't believe that the group didn't succeed with Motown. Friends who I played it for at the time all loved it. All that "Bedlam" needed was a chance to be heard.

    Look What You Made Me Do

    Reading the posts about the Rare Earth label recordings on CD got me interested all over again! I once owned all the LPs on the Rare Earth label, and only retained a few when I got rid of my vinyl collection. I held on to Impact Of Brass, The Cats, The God Squad, The Messengers, Matrix, and, of course, the two XIT albums because I liked them so much. Reading the info about the XIT albums being available on CD triggered an online hunt, and I found and ordered the 'Silent Warrior' CD. Now I will enjoy it even more, since it sounds much, much better than my old LP! Sometimes, reading SoulfulDetroit posts can be an expensive (but enjoyable) exercise!

    Aside from the 3 tracks on TCMS, I believe the only other track by the Impact Of Brass which is available on CD is "What A Friend We Have In Jesus" on the CD album of "The Key To The Kingdom". Does anyone know of others (aside from TCMS and TKTTK)?

    Also, whilst 518 Lost Nation Paradise Lost is on CD, I believe these are of unofficial issue.

    Does anyone have the Impact Of Brass album? Is it any good!? I've heard one or two songs from it and it sounds nice!

    Never heard about this digital compilation issued in 2015 :

    " The Detroit Sessions" by Magic
    https://www.amazon.com/Detroit-Sessi.../dp/B00TQTH1HG

    It contains , to my knowledge , some songs previously unreleased : "Artificial Dream" , "Get Up" , "I'm Singing A Song" and "Light Up Your Window" ( informations about this four tracks on DFTMC )

  19. #119
    Very nice find on that digital release "The Detroit Sessions" by Magic.

    All 16 tracks there are listed on DFTMC but of the 11 songs on the "Magic" album on the Rare Earth label only 9 are included (missing "Keep On Movin' On" and "Don't Use Your Love To Blind Me") - so may still need to buy the Big Pink CD release to have the entire album.

    That, of course, means that 9 of the tracks on the digital release weren't on the album and seemingly unreleased until 2015?. Many of the tracks are quite enjoyable too even on first listen.

    It's a fairly typical Motowny instrumental thing - good for background music. The single release "Never Can Say Goodbye" / "So Far So Good" (available on TCMS) is typical of the feel of the album. It's not a lot like a proper brass band sound really (being a Northern England lad) - the closest they get to that type of sound is actually on another album "The Key To The Kingdom" which is also available on CD and the track I'm referring to is "What a Friend We Have In Jesus" - it's a beauty.

    The Impact of Brass do have a Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/The-Impact-...08452869196895

    Thanks mystery! Yes, if I'm not mistaken, I believe they released a few things after their tenure at Motown, and must still be in existence as of today apparently!

    The link to the new CD of their Motown LP doesn’t work for me though...

    How right you are and the "Enclosed" album is from 1969 - and there's one of the missing tracks "Keep On Movin' On". Now where is "Don't Use Your Love To Blind Me"? You're coming up with some great info. Actually I have seen that cover before but maybe not connected it.

    Still Selling After All These Years

    Name:  Power Of Zeus.jpg

    OK, so sometimes it takes me a while to get round to buying 'new' releases, but the wait was worth it today when I got the Power Of Zeus 'The Gospel According To Zeus' CD. I had the album many years ago and was aware that it had appeared several times officially and unoffically on CD over the years. I purchased the 2019 version on the Mr Bongo label (ASIN: B07NRDPC5J) which is officially licensed by Universal and was half-speed mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road. While it may not be the greatest rock album ever made, it still has great originality and the newly mastered version probably sounds as good as what Russ and Ralph heard through the speakers when they produced this most unusual Motown magnum opus. It's hard to believe that Power Of Zeus was only a four-piece because they created an album full of excellent vocals and instrumentation worthy of a larger group. The most spooky thing to realize is that the twins were working on this a mere 50 YEARS AGO, and I'm sure that neither they nor the group thought that there would still be buyers for this album today! Definitely one of Curtis McNair's more 'out there' album covers, too, but totally appropriate for what's in the grooves. Although it's a bit of an outsider, it's a very welcome addition to my musically open-minded Motown collection and just listening to it makes you appreciate all the work and creativity that went into its making.
