Variety Is The Spice Of Life


The underrated Greg Perry is not a household name, but his behind-the-scenes contributions to soul make him one of the more interesting performers of the 1970s.  The multi-talented North Dakota native began his career as part of the creative team at Invictus Records, the label formed by Holland-Dozier-Holland after they left Motown.  There, he was often paired with Angelo Bond and General Johnson, where they wrote material for the company's stable of artists, which included 100 Proof Aged In Soul, Honey Cone, Chairmen Of The Board, and Freda Payne. Among their successes are "Bring The Boys Back Home," "Somebody's Been Sleeping," and "Men Are Getting Scarce." 

Invictus was out of business by the mid-70s, and Perry stepped to the microphone himself for a couple of albums that showcased his endearing vocal abilities.  Mellow grooves like "Live And Let Live" made him a favorite on the rare groove/modern soul circuit. He also produced the classic Oops! Here I Go Again album by his wife Edna Wright
