Release Year


Eddie Holman, one of the most revered deep soul singers of the sixties alongside the likes of James Carr, Percy Sledge, and O.V. Wright, was born in Norfolk, Virginia in 1946. Raised in the church, the influence of black Methodist singers guided his career from early performances on NBC TV’s Children’s Hour to his worldwide million-selling hit ‘Hey There Lonely Girl’.

United showcases the musical elements of the “old” Eddie Holman, using many of the same musicians who played on some of his soul hits. Recorded at Philly’s world-famous Sigma Sound Studio with Norman Harris on guitar, Ronnie Baker on bass, and keyboardist Eugene Curry, the album provides a firm rhythmic bedrock for Eddie’s intricate vocal patterns. The self-penned songs range from the doo-wop flavored title track, featuring some of Eddie’s best vocal ducks and swirls, to the funky ‘Thank You For Saving Me’. The lilting ‘Eternal Love’ contains one of the most spine-tingling five seconds of music ever recorded—the word “Jesus” broken into a 12-syllable falsetto soar.

“Eddie Holman’s voice, an astonishing precision instrument which can leap octaves with the speed of mercury and bend notes into shapes unimagined by lesser singers, has assured its possessor a place in soul history.” — Tony Cummings, 1985
