Huey Remixed 1972: Eddie Kendricks People… Hold On

In May, 1972, a photograph of Eddie Kendricks seated in (what appears to be) an African chair holding a spear in his right hand made by Weldon Arthur McDougal III, was published on the cover of the album ‘People … Hold On’.

People … Hold On is the second album by former Temptations vocalist Eddie Kendricks. Released in the Spring of 1972 on the Tamla imprint of Motown Records, it was arranged by David Leacraft, David Van De Pitte and Leroy Fleming. The cover photography was by Weldon Arthur McDougal III.
