THE 21ST - THE SUN CAME OUT

Mike Terry, the producer and arranger of this record, is one of the lesser known names of Detroit soul, but his work is strongly revered by soul aficionados and his baritone sax work at Motown Records proper is one of the key ingredients to the Motown Sound.

Mike produced, arranged, and wrote dozens of excellent records after he went on his own in the mid 60's, and this lovely side is essentially a one off from this group (the record was released with another flip side but the same catalog number as well). It's one of those records whose greatness is subtle; on the surface it's a simple song and production that isn't really laden with hooks, but it has a very special charm and the message rings through beautifully.

from 1972...
