The Motown Connection Vol 2

These Old Shoes co-promoter and DJ Jo Wallace has put together an excellent
collection of less well-known Motown treasures which is due out soon on
Universal. Almost every track is a must have addition to any serious Detroit
fans collection, with many gracing the silver disc format for the first
time. With everything from NS crowd pleasers to rare grooves this collection
has something for everyone.

Jo and fellow Shoes sideick Paul Thomas-Peter came into the soul 24-7 studios
as guests of the Bee Cool show back in March, when the album was due for
imminent release. despite a petulant mimi disc player that seemed to select
tracks in a random fashion, we managed to give many of the cuts an airing and
during the broadcast Jo and Paul did their best to fill the enforced gaps
with informed background information. However, as these things tend to
happen, the release date was pushed back and now looks like the CD will be in
the shops in early August. But rest assured, its well worth the wait.
a guaranteed floor filler, Junior Walkers Good Rockin dates back to 1963
when it first appeared on Harvey Fuquas eponymous label. A no-nonsense
belter. Then theres Gladys Knight&The Pips Who Is She And What Is She To
You which, although later covered by Creative source, is still damned funky.

The 80s rare groove crowd are well catered for with Eddie Kendricks Date
With The Rain from his 72 album People Hold On, and Stevie Wonders Light My
Fire which first appeared on his My Cherie Amour LP. Jo has managed to pull
together some not so obvious contenders such as Billy Eckstine,Earl Van Dyke,

Tammi Terrell, Martha&The Vandellas,The Fantastic Four, and the Monitors AD
truly one for the Tamla connoisseur. With any luck, a more detailed review
will be in the next issue.
