Not released, but should of been. It's brilliant.

Impossible to know just how many have Danced to their Music over the years. Seen "Needle In A Haystack" get people of different generations onto the floor at many a Wedding Reception. &#1

My first £1 record. Just a magnificent piece of music and an incredible production by Johnny Bristol. Hairs on the back of the neck stuff, even after 50+ years.

Can`t find a clip, but whats the story behind the alternative take to These things, i have it on a motown lp, was it released on any other format?

Ok i`ll answer my own question then, seeing how ive done some digging, and according to Soulful detroit website, the wrong tapes were sent to the british studio`s for the velvettes track on Motown chartbusters 6 :thumbsup:

Thanks Harry

I was trying to find something out. It's good that different takes were released like this.

Only a few would have heard them otherwise. I wonder how many have yet to surface on CD etc.

When the chart stuff of the day has emptied the very same dancefloor.

hiya H.

There is a clip on youtube-you have to trawl a few, but I've put it on Heywoods facebook page.

However, I have it on Motown Chartbusters 6- don't know if it's on any others, but the same take is on the first Motown Northern Soul CD that Chris King comped.

Maybe it snuck out in Europe- who knows?

And, of course, as common and as well known as it is

" He Was Really Saying Something"

does the very same thing, and remains a great tune.

It was only on the 1st pressing run Harry, no idea how many got through but it was a mistake rectified on the other presses and later on the CD. I have a 1st run with the alt take. Its funny to see the dancers faces as they mime the wrong words.

Only a handful of titles released on 45.

Everyone of them still sound as fresh as the day they were recorded.

Let Love Live was to have been released on their LP but shelved

They should have had continued success with records like this waiting to be released.

Definitely worth a mention - 

 

Their best unreleased track by a country mile originally played at Stafford by guy Hennigan as the Del_phis let this torch burn. Was great to see them sing it live at the cleethorpes weekender a few years ago hairs stood up on back of my neck

It was a privilege to see these songbirds perform at the 2017 Detroit a go go event followed by a visit to the Motown museum.

42 years after first hearing These things...at the youthy, it still sounded fresh.
