Most of Ace and Kent’s releases from the Motown
catalogue have been 60s-oriented, but a little over a
year ago we issued a 2CD collection by one of the
company’s most prominent 70s acts. Our collection of
three complete albums (all hitherto unissued on CD)
plus bonus tracks by the Mk I line-up of the Undisputed
Truth was warmly received, and has proven to be one
of the most popular of our Motown releases so far.
? We were immediately asked if we had any plans to
issue the repertoire of the Mk II line-up, consisting of
two albums which had also evaded CD issue. We aim to
please, and so February brings the digital debut of
'Cosmic Truth' and 'Higher Than High', restored to
catalogue after an absence of over 40 years.
? These albums offer a slightly more ‘spaced out’ side of
the Truth, still under the guidance of their mentor and
star Motown producer Norman Whitfield. At the time of
release, they were somewhat submerged in the first
wave of disco, but are now regarded as pristine
examples of psychedelic soul. The hit singles ‘U.F.Os’,
‘Higher Than High’ and a rebuilt version of their earlier
hit, ‘Help Yourself’, are among the many highlights
across the two albums.
? Mastered from fresh transfers of the original album
production masters, with the usual high-quality image-
filled booklet - featuring a sleevenote based on a recent
interview with Vee McDonald from the Mk II group - it’s
another Ace Motown set that no collector of ‘The Sound
Of Young America’ should pass up the opportunity to
