Rare Earth

  • 🇺🇸 Detroit, MI
  • Years Active
    1968 - 2021
Rare Earth was an American rock band from Detroit, Michigan. According to Louder, "Rare Earth's music straddles genres and defies categorisation, [sic] slipping seamlessly between the two seemingly disparate worlds of classic rock and R&B." The band was signed to Motown's Rare Earth record label. 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.)
