Rare Earth

Rare Earth is an American Rhythm and blues/blues rock band affiliated with Motown's Rare Earth record label (which was named after the band), which prospered in 1970–1972. 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 previously signed all-white acts The Rustix, The Dalton Boys, or The Underdogs had any hits.)


Rare Earth is an American rock band, who were particularly famous in the late 1960s and the 1970s.
The group formed in 1961 as The Sunliners, and changed their name to "Rare Earth" in 1967.
Their 1973 album Ma, written and produced by Norman Whitfield, is considered their best overall work, and features their version of "Hum Along and Dance".
