Album review

Edwin Starr

WAR & PEACE/INVOLVED

BOTH MOTOWN

For diehard Northern Soulsters, the crowd-pleasing Edwin Starr remains the true essence of the Motown sound. Though perhaps now best known for the Norman Whitfieldproduced "War" (which he later performed with Bruce Springsteen), it's the four-to-the-floor Starr-man of "S.O.S. [Stop Her On Sight]", "Agent 00 Soul", "Headline News" and "25 Miles" that sustains his cult following. Of these two-albums-on-one-CD packages, Soul Master/25 Miles will enthral '60s purists while War & Peace/Involved is for those who prefer their soul psychedelic.
