Rare Earth is an American rock band affiliated with Motown's Rare Earth record label (named after the band), which prospered from 1970–1972. Although not the first white band signed to Motown, Rare Earth was the first big hit-making act signed by Motown that consisted only of white members. None of the previously signed all-white acts - The Rustix, The Dalton Boys, or The Underdogs - had any hits.

Blue-Eyed Soul Motown Soul. The sound of the material varies from time to time. At best, the band could be seen as a soulful and hard rocking outfit that really knew how to merge sounds of soul music with hard rock and jazz. At worst they come across as bubble gummy ‘60's pop. The album includes several previously unreleased tracks. Of course their biggest hit, "I Just Want To Celebrate" is present, as are many other originals and covers by artists such as Smokey Robinson and Ray Charles.

I like this cd of Rare Earth, I am not a big fan of this band due to only a few good songs I like from Rare earth.

Rare Earth Album Discography by David Edwards, Mike Callahan and Patrice Eyries Last update: October 3, 2015. Rare Earth was active from 1969 until 1976 and was intended to release Motown's psychedelic and underground rock bands. It was run by Barney Ales. The best selling act for the label was the group Rare Earth, a Detroit band who had started in 1961 as the Sunliners. Drummer Pete Rivera and sax player Gil Bridges were originals, and were joined over the next five years by John Parrish (bass), Rod Richards (guitar), and Kenny James (keyboards). By 1968, they changed their name to Rare.

Rare Earth’s music straddles genres and defies categorisation, slipping seamlessly between the two seemingly disparate worlds of classic rock and R&B. This careful balancing act is a rarity even now, and was a near impossibility in the colour-segregated 60s when Rare Earth began their journey. Groundbreakers and pioneers, this post-racial band should have been the first of many. The album flopped, but Rare Earth’s reputation as one Detroit’s preeminent live bands continued to grow. We always played headlining shows back then, Bridges says. Bands like Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers would open for us.

Ecology Rare Earth’s sophomore effort hit the album chart on 11 July 1970, topping at and hanging on for 49 weeks. The band settled into guitar driven, percussion supplemented grooves that worked well. Edward Guzman (congas and percussion) became the band’s sixth member and the album yielded not one, but two hit singles. First (I Know) I’m Losing You written by the Motown team of Norman Whitfield, Edward Holland, Jr. & Cornelius Grant. Whitfield was brought in to produce the sessions, obviously a great choice  . Anthology: The Best Of Rare Earth (Motown, 1995) 2 CD Set. Rare Earth In Concert (Lake Erie Records, 2005). Fill Your Head: The Studio Albums 1969-1974 (Hip-O Select/Motown, 2009) 3 CD Set.
