Description

Edwin Starr hailed from Nashville, Tennessee and is best remembered for
his rasping Vietnam protest song War from 1970. After a stint as vocalist
for Bill Doggetts touring band Starr was able to secure a solo recording deal
with Detroit's Ric-Tic Records in 1965 and immediately gained chart success
with his self-penned hit Agent Double-O-Soul (R&B #8/Pop #21).

More Ric-
Tic hits followed before Berry Gordy bought out Starr's contract in 1967 and
took him and his music to the fabled Motown imprint, making the James
Brown and Stax influenced singer the rawest vocalist on the celebrated
label.
Involved was Starr's fifth LP for the Gordy imprint on Motown Records and
was released in 1971.

Reaching #45 R&B and a respectable #178
Involved was guided by legendary Motown producer Norman Whitfield
who, along with song writing partner Barrett Strong, contributed the
majority of the cuts on this album.

Whitfield has both Starr and the session
musicians playing as hard and explosive as he can, marking this album out as
one of the rawest recordings ever released under the Motown banner.
