Good call, DGQ. No forum is complete without a Motown topic.

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.

Heard this blasting from the radio of a local painter & decorator yesterday. It's very true too:
