The cover is ironic because upon glance one might think this to be psyche-rock, or something similar. But The 8th Day is nourishing soulness. Here's some info I found on them:
"Three Singers From Detroit Formed By The Holland-Dozier-Holand Writing Team After Leaving Motown. Prior To This Mega-Rare Release The Group Was Known As 100 Proof Aged In Soul And Released Two Albums On The Hot Wax Label."

They definitely had all of the mastery and sound that any Motown group is expected to possess. Just listen to 'Just As Long'....You gotta have it if you love soul music. So, don't forget the 8th day of the week!
