HURTBOX008 Holland-Dozier-Holland: Rare 45s Vinyl Box - Released 08/12/14

 

 

 

Amazon Link:- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Holland-Dozier-Rare-Vinyl-VINYL/dp/B00N86M7M2/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1414591545&sr=1-1&keywords=holland+dozier+holland+rare+45s

 

Following the success of the recent Harmless release, ‘Holland —Dozier-Holland: The Complete 45s Collection’, we’ve been inundated with requests to make some of the previously unreleased acetates, test-pressings and remixes available on a 7” vinyl format. So here it is! Welcome to the ‘Holland-Dozier-Holland: Rare 45s Box Set’ due to popular demand!

 

This will be 10 x 7” vinyl records all in bespoke Invictus, Hot Wax and Music Merchant Sleeves together with a 20 7” x 7” page booklet courtesy of Robert Moss which contains recent interviews with Eddie Holland, Ralph Terrana, Frank Bryant of the Just Brothers, Dennis Coffey, Angelo Bond, Ed Wolfrum and Ron Dunbar plus many additional photographs and scans, all housed in a heavyweight secure box.

 

This is the first time-ever that any of these records, versions or remixes have been released on vinyl and all have been signed off by Holland-Dozier-Holland. For collectors of Detroit and Motown rarities this will be a ‘must-purchase’ item and will sit beautifully alongside the recent Motown Rare 7” Box Sets.

 

Also, please note that the 3 x Tom Moulton remixes of the Vocal and Instrumental remixes of the Chairmen Of The Board’s “Give Me Just A Little More Time”/“You’ve Got Me Dangling On A String” and Freda Payne’s “Unhooked Generation” will only be available on vinyl via this package.

 

There will be also be some heightened interest in this release following the recent TV show - “The Nation’s Favourite Motown Song” plus the various TV programs and the Top 10 Box Office success of "Northern Soul: The Film”.

And cheap as chips as well!  :thumbsup:

 

I have to fight battles and do volumes of paperwork to hit these Dealer Prices. :thumbsup:

 

Works out at £5.00 a disc with a free box and 20 page booklet. Also it's doubtful that this will be re-pressed, so I strongly suggest people order a.s.a.p.!

Is it limited release Ian ? 

 

Well, at this point limited to 1000 only. Experience in this area makes us think that this will probably sell up to 1000 units internationally quite quickly and then recede equally quickly. So the chances of a potential re-press wouldn't kick in unless we had a guaranteed further 500 orders. So, yep, I reckon we'll press 1000 and sell 'em quickly but as for a re-press.......who knows......?

 

This stuff is difficult to call and the market is constantly churning so most companies hedge their bets quite carefully and caution is the name of the game.

You're not doing anything wrong Gogs. I'm a 'lil bit shaky on the Soundcloud link thingy - I need to check that the links are set to public and what quality they'll be blah blah blah. All time-consuming headache-inducing stuff and I haven't quite got around to it yet. I'll try and do it today...

Worth pointing out that Amazon have done one of their unpredictable price-drops on the Holland-Dozier-Holland Rare 45s Vinyl Box. Now available @ a staggering £41.79 including postage. That works out @ £4.00 per unreleased 7" single and there are only 1000.

Anyone wanting this should get in now whilst the stock is there 'cos it won't be there long at this price!

Mine arrived on Tuesday - just playing them through now. Really good package, discs look flawless, excellent sleeves and labels and the booklet is very well presented and makes a good read.

The first 5 of the 10 singles have tracks by the same artist(s) on both sides with matching labels, then when you reach disc 6 you get different groups on each side: Satisfaction Unlimited "Why" with the Hot Wax label on the A side and The Jones Girls "Don't be sorry be careful" with the Music Merchant label on the flip.

Similar pairing on disc 7 with 100 Proof Aged in Soul "Since you've been gone" on the Hot Wax label, and Barrino Brothers "I want to give you all the love you've been giving me" on Invictus.

The set ends with the last 3 records back to the matched style of same artist and label on both sides.

 

I think the 100 Proof track is probably the strongest, but all of them are interesting and good to have them out to enjoy.

Hmm, preordered on Amazon ages ago, still no sign of my copy arriving.

According to the latest from Amazon "unforeseen problems have caused a delay" whatever that means. Anyone else not had theirs? Ian, any idea what's going on? Run out of copies?

Got them from Amazon on the day of release after pre-ordering.  Nice looking box set.  I'll give them a spin over the weekend.
