THE INVITATIONS It Was A Woman
The Invitations came to prominence through their classic 60’s soul recordings, “What’s Wrong With Me Baby” and “Skiing In The Snow” on Dynovoice records. More recently their second release for the MGM label “”Watch Out Little Girl” has grown in popularity within the Northern Soul scene.
After the groups association with MGM finished they then signed with the Diamond label, releasing just one single “Got To Have It Now”. The Diamond label was owned by Joel Diamond who during the early 70’s re-signed the Invitations to his Polydor distributed ,”Silver Blue” label. Where they cut a string of excellent releases with the likes of “Look On The Good Side” and “They Say The Girls Crazy” ensuring the group continued popularity.
A later 70’s release the funky “We Don’t Allow (no sitting In Here)” would appear on the Red Greg label.
During the late 60’s and early 70’s the group were regular visitors to the UK, firstly performing under the stage name of the “American Drifters” before eventually reverting to the Invitations on later tours. They returned to the UK in 2005 to perform at the Assembly Rooms Derby followed by the Hemsby” Motown” Weekender.
In 2009 the group under their own Invite records banner released the” Missing You” album. Although being little more than a vanity project to sound out a potential market with a limited pressing run of only 100 copies the album did contain some excellent songs.
It is from this album that Soul Junction have taken the following songs “It Was A Woman” backed with “Heavenly Love” which incidentally only appears on the album as a instrumental version, for this next Soul Junction 45 release.
