Good to see what people like so what do you rate Motown wise, what's your favorite?

Mine would be

"No One Could Love You More" ~~~~~~ GLADYS KNIGHT & The PIPS

The Marvelettes "Poor Little Rich Girl"

Four Tops "Red Hot Love" is a real grower.

Monitors "Share A little Love", or Kim Weston "I'm Still Loving You" definitely do it for me.

4 Tops: Baby I Need Your Loving is still the greatest for me although one that's doing the business on the dancefloor over here in Dublin is

Supremes: You've Been So Wonderful to Me.

it's the flip of Some Things You Never Get Used to.......well worth checking out

I quite like the following,

Barbara Randolph - I Got A Feeling

Marv Johnson - You Got The Love I Love

Frank Wilson - Do I Love You (sentimental reasons, had it played at my wedding)

But of course anything by Edwin Starr does it for me!

Wonder if Jo Wallace is reading this.

BTW she is on All singing all dancing next week. Expect some ballsy soul, and maybe the odd motown gem.

Glad this topic came up.

One of my faves is the unreleased Tommy Good - I've got to get away

Was this unearthed on a master tape or acetate? Anyone? And how out of order would I be if I put it on (and consequently played it from) a dub plate.

I love Jack Hammer's "Swim" ......... funky, with great bongos..... sounds a little like Tom Jones!

and I've always had a soft spot for 25 miles and nowhere to run

also playing out barbara randolph version of can i get a witness which is nice and funky too.
