I've always wondered why these guys weren't major stars.  

Following their break-up with Motown, Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland formed their own Hot Wax label. One of their first creative moves was to form 100 Proof Aged In Soul. The group featured the talents of Eddie Holiday (aka Eddie Anderson), Steve Mancha (aka Clyde Wilson) and former Contours, Falcons, and Originals alumnist Joe Stubbs.  

Released in 1969, the trio debuted with the single 'Too Many Cooks (Spoil the Soup)' b/w 'Not Enough Love To Satisfy (Hot Wax catalog number HS-6904). A minor hit (top-40 R&B and top-100 pop), the single was followed by nursery rhyme-ish 'Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed' b/w 'I've Come To Save You' (Hot Wax catalog number HS-7004). The second single went top-10 pop and R&B, leading Hot Wax to eventually finance a supporting album.  

Boasting one of the year's oddest cover (see the picture to the left), the cleverly-titled "Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed" showcased the cream of Hot Wax's writing and production staff (Angelo Bond, Ronald Dunbar, General Johnson and Greg Perry) on a first rate selection of highly commercial, Motown-ish soul. Boasting two top-notch lead vocalists in Mancha and Stubbs (the two sounded very similar to my ears), most of the 11 tracks had commercial potential. First rate melodies with entertaining lyrics made tracks such as 'Not Enough Love To Satisfy', 'Age Ain't Nothing But a Number' and the tougher 'She's Not Just Another Woman' a sheer pleasure. In fact the only track that didn't really click with me was Stubbs' extended make out ballad 'Ain't That Lovin' You (For More Reasons Than One)'. The album included all four tracks off of the first two singles. Elsewhere 'One Man's Leftover's (Is Another Man's Feast)' b/w 'If I Could See the Light In the Window' (Hot Wax catalog number HS-7009) was also released as a single.
