Good call, DGQ. No forum is complete without a Motown topic.That Motown Sound Sure Do Gets Around Wink

This is a great favourite of mine, The Miracles' "Going To A-Go Go". Bought it in 'the winter of '65/'66 and played it to death. Still love it.

My other all-time favourite Motown track is this corker by Kim Weston. The instrumental break is about as less-is-more as it gets. That Motown Sound Sure Do Gets Around Rolleyes

Ooh, this is an old topic. I've bumped it since hearing The Supremes' original (and in my view best) version of "You Can't Hurry Love" at the gym this morning, where one of the pieces of equipment awarded me 140/100, my highest score so far. clown

Perhaps my favourite hard-hitting Motown track is The Miracles' "Going To A Go-Go". It has something of a juggernaut flattening everything in its path:

Great song, Dave. What I don't understand is that it's not in the list of their singles:

I see one member (now passed) was Levi Stubbs's brother Joe.
