Sealed 1969 Original, Clean Cut Out Hole. “A Blues Folksinger Born In Durham, England, Ruth Copeland First Came To Attention After Marrying Jeffrey Bowen, A Staff Producer At Motown. When Bowen Followed Songwriters Holland-Dozier-Holland Over To Their Own Invictus Label In 1970, Copeland Was One Of His First Signings As She Joined The Fledgling Vocal Group New Play To Become The Label's First White Performer. Collaborating With Edith Wayne And Future P-Funk Producer Ron Dunbar, Copeland Wrote "Music Box," New Play's Debut Single, And The Second Ever Invictus Release. However, The Group Broke Up Soon After Its Release And Copeland Began Planning For A Solo Career. She Also Struck Up An Unlikely Partnership With George Clinton And Became A Massively Influential Force On Parliament's Debut Album, 1971's Osmium. Not Only Did She Co-Produce The Sessions, She Also Wrote What Remain Two Of The Most Bizarre (And Decidedly Unfunky) Songs In That Band's Entire Repertoire, The Haunting "Little Old Country Boy" And "The Silent Boatman." Two Further Songs, "Come In Out Of The Rain" (Co-Written With Clinton) And "Breakdown" (With Clinton And Clyde Wilson) Appeared As Parliament Singles In 1971 And 1972. Copeland's Partnership With Clinton Naturally Flowed Into Her Solo Career. Viewed Today As A Virtual Twin Of Osmium, Her Self Portrait Debut Featured Contributions From Eddie Hazel, Lucius Ross, Bernie Worrell, Billy "Bass" Nelson, Tiki Fulwood, And Clinton Himself, While The Co-Writes Included A New Version Of The Epic "The Silent Boatman.”” – Amy Hanson, AMG
