8th Day

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, October 1971

WITHIN EVERY Invictus and Hot Wax group there is a winner. General Johnson showed up with the Chairmen, Steve Mancha turned up singing lead for 100 Proof and we've now found out that the lead voice with 8th Day on their million selling 'She's Not Just Another Woman' is none other than Melvin Davis, whose fame goes back to my Action days when both 'Save It' and 'Love Bug Got A Bear Hug' were released on the label. Furthermore, we can now safely dispel rumours that 8th Day is 100 Proof.
