Motown Monday ~ “Stop Her on Sight (S.O.S.)” ~ Edwin Starr

Edwin Starr

This 1966 release was Starr’s third straight chart hit for Ric-Tic behind “Agent OO Soul” and “Backstreets”. With the moonlighting Funk Brothers and Mike Terry’s blazing baritone sax it was all pure Motown sound. Personally I thought his recordings with this label was his best before reaching Motown’s.

Detroit never sounded so sweet.


Written by Edwin Starr, Richard Morris and Al Hamilton.
Sadly nowhere on the internet could give me the backing vocalists.
Instrumentation – The Funk Brothers

C. Hatcher was Starr.
