Album Review

Andrew Hamilton []

Two strong tracks propelled Ecology up the pop charts: the swaggering, bravado-laden ''Born to Wander,'' written by Tom Baird, and a hard-hitting, rocking rendition of the Temptations' ''I Know I'm Losing You,'' written by Cornelius Grant, Eddie Holland, and Norman Whitfield; the epic remake of the latter is almost eleven minutes of pure funk-rock. Lead singer Pete Riviera had a powerful voice, similar to Dennis Edwards, that could sell a song; the percussion and echo vocals accentuate the classic. The guys do a nice job on John Lennon and Paul McCartney's ''Eleanor Rigby,'' and bass player John Persh's ''Nice Place to Visit'' adds a different twist to Rare Earth's legacy.

Rare Earth's Biography

Rare Earth is an American rock band affiliated with Motown's Rare Earth record label (named after the band), which prospered from 19701972. 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.) []
