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.


Soul Master was Starr's debut album and was released on Motown's
Gordy imprint in 1968. With soul music in the 60's, and especially with
Motown, the emphasis was on singles, so the album did not chart but
does boast a number of R&B hit singles.

These include the
aforementioned Agent Double-O-Soul and Starr's other top ten Ric-Tic
release, 1966's Stop Her On Sight (S.O.S) (R&B #9/Pop #48/UK #35), as
well as Headline News (Pop #84).

Two more singles, issued on Gordy,
charted in the US during the same year as the album release. These
were I Am The Man For You Baby (R&B #45/Pop #112) and Way Over
There (Pop #119).
