The album release notes can be read in full via the Ace website (link below) by Soul Source member @ady croasdell and a preview follows below...

Detroit’s black music scene 1961-64 – about to spread soul music across the world.

Detroit gave the world soul music through the success of Motown, which was scoring big hits from 1959. The Motown sound would be studied and aped by hundreds of acts and dozens of labels around the city. “Birth Of Soul – Special Detroit Edition” features several Motown connections, including a previously unheard Martha Reeves song and an unissued number from Berry Gordy’s first wife, Thelma. Graham Finch’s 8,000 words in the booklet are exemplary and tell the tale of Detroit’s long-neglected soul roots with authority and style.
