"All killer, no filler -- an incredible soul album from The Metros -- a Detroit group who rivaled the best that Motown had to offer in the '60s! These guys are amazing -- incredible harmonies, razorsharp timing, and a depth of soul that really raises the bar for the Motor City scene. This album's their one and only full length effort, and it's a doozy all the way through -- filled with original tunes and a few key covers -- all produced to perfection by the legendary Pied Piper team, who were also known for their work with The Hesitations and Freddy Butler. The grooves are fantastic -- played by a lineup that includes Jack Ashford on vibes and percussion, Joe Hunter on piano, and Dave Hamilton on guitar -- all Detroit studio legends, making wonderful music for this set! The album's a legendary Northern Soul set -- and original copies of the singles fetch hundreds on Ebay. First time on CD, and first reissue anywhere in the world -- remastered from original tapes, presented with full liner notes and vintage photos too."
