The Flaming Ember was an American blue-eyed soul band from Detroit, Michigan, who found commercial success starting in the late 1960s.

The group originally formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1964. At that time, they were known as The Flaming Embers, for a local Detroit restaurant. In 1969, they signed with the newly formed Hot Wax Records[citation needed], (the label founded by Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Edward Holland, Jr.), after the band had recorded for a number of smaller Detroit-area labels since 1965. They recorded for Ed Wingate's Ric Tic label in 1967, but when Berry Gordy, Jr.'s Motown Records purchased Golden Records/Ric-Tic from Wingate, the Flaming Ember chose not to sign with Motown.

The band dropped the "s" from its name and scored a pop and rhythm and blues hit with "Mind, Body and Soul" in 1969 (#26 on the US Billboard pop singles chart), their signature song (and heartland rock antecedent) "Westbound #9" (#24 US pop, #15 US Billboard R&B chart), and "I'm Not My Brother's Keeper" (#34 pop, #12 R&B), all released between late 1969 and late 1970.

The group's follow-up efforts such as 1971's "Stop the World and Let Me Off" were not as successful, and after changing their name to Mind, Body and Soul they spent the rest of the 1970s playing the Detroit bar circuit.

The band was inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in 1999.[1]

The Flaming Embers reunited in 2004, played at the Rockabilly Festival in Tennessee and completed a CD.
