Rare Earth - 1970 - Ecology

Rare Earth is an American rock band affiliated with Motown's Rare Earth record label (which was named after the band), who prospered in 1970-1972. The group formed in 1960 as "The Sunliners" and changed their name to "Rare Earth" in 1968. After recording an unsuccessful debut album "Dream/Answers" on the Verve label in 1968, they were signed to Motown in 1969. 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. (The Rustix were signed before them and were an all white act, but did not have any hits). Ecology is the 3rd studio album by Rare Earth, which was released in 1970. It includes a cover of "Eleanor Rigby" from The Beatles. The single, another cover of The Temptations "(I Know) I'm Losing You" would eventually hit the Top 10 and be certified Gold. The album, "Ecology" would garner a 2nd Top 10 single with the popular, "Born to Wander". The album would become the 2nd platinum album in a row for the band. The success of the first two Rare Earth albums gave Motown gravitas in yet another genre, pop/rock. The band would be the flagship group on the label, though R. Dean Taylor would also hit the Top 10 with a Gold single, "Indiana Wants Me".
