Lamont Dozier 'Why Can't We Be Lovers'. Tony Blackburn on radio 1 always played it at 8.15 in an attempt to make me late for school. Used to play it at Parkers.

Not "Dancefloor Destroyers" but I would go fro Ty Hunter / Glass House - I Don't See Me In Your Eyes Anymore on the Invictus label and perhaps Silent Majority - Frightened Girl on Hot Wax. From the Music Merchant label how about The Jones Girls - You're The Only Bargain I've Got which is dance floor friemdly.

Yep, that was it. Nude night was the one with very cheap drinks before 11. Bar staff used to see us beer monsters coming and run.

As primarily a Detroit collector, I have tended to "accrue" certain titles through certain "blind faith", if indeed, that is the right phrase to use? Hence picking up a few previous unknowns from a personal perspective, and  whilst my favourite musical "tipple" mainly  originates from the 1960's, my ear is keen for the arousal factor, irrespective of era!

The Invictus / Hot Wax labels in particular, a major part of the HDH output,and undeniably "contrived" to prolong their post Motown portfolio, with many classy 45 releases, which need no introduction ,however possibly a "left fielder" from my own usual selections includes  a title that sounds better with each hearing...... Earl English-Wanting you-Invictus 1275 (from 1974), maybe a "marmite track" to some, but strikes the right note to me personally....It's on youtube..... alas I'm a Luddite....

Chairmen Of The Board - Give Me Just A Little More Time  

For me one of HDH's finest productions particularly the genius idea to mix the breakdown in mono and then " punch " back into stereo. Pretty uncommon studio technique then and still sounds wonderful today. Not forgetting General Johnson's fantastic Brrrrrddd! A total winner!

the album version of You've Got to Crawl is slightly longer and a different mix well worth a listen.

Lee Charles Get Your House in Order is the instrumental to it.

The Silent Majority track to have is the Something New About You which appears on the rarer issues of Colours of my Love

One Mans Leftovers is an old Wigan favourite from 100% proof a stormer

Something New About You was a release in it's own right and is available as a "same sided" promo.  Colors Of My Love was the B side.

Honey Cone - "Somebody Is Always Messing Up A Good Thing" / "The truth will come out" - Hot Wax

Satisfaction Unlimited - "Let's Change The Subject" - Hot Wax

Just Brothers - "You've got the love to make me over" - Music Merchant

Melvin Davis - "You made me over" / "I'm worried" / "Just as long" - Invictus

Freda Payne - "We've got to find a way back to love" / "Two wrongs don't make a right" - Invictus
