8th Day was an American R&B group from Detroit, Michigan.
The Holland–Dozier–Holland (HDH) songwriting team had scored hits in 1970 with the group 100 Proof (Aged in Soul). When the latter's song "Somebody's Been Sleeping in My Bed" became a hit, radio stations also began playing the tune "She's Not Just Another Woman". HDH wanted to release the song as another single, but did not want to hurt the sales of "Somebody's Been Sleeping in My Bed", so they released "She's Not Just Another Woman" on Invictus Records under the name 8th Day in 1971. The song, written by HDH under the pseudonyms C. Wilson and Ronald Dunbar, became a hit, peaking at #11 in the U.S. chart. The record sold over a million copies and received a gold disc from the Recording Industry Association of America on September 15, 1971.
A second song released under the 8th Day name, "You've Got to Crawl (Before You Walk)", also hit the charts laterЧитать далее в Википедии...
