Various : Motown Connoiseurs

Forces the question of whether, 'Rockin' Robin' aside, Motown ever produced a shit track.

Extracted from Berry Gordy’s endless vaults, this collection yet again forces the question of whether, ‘Rockin’ Robin’ aside, Motown ever produced a shit track.

Necessary or evil? Real

obscure stuff, including the brilliant Stevie Wonder-penned Isley Brothers rarity ‘My Love Is Your Love (Forever)’ and one-time Marvin Gaye collaborator Tammi Terrell on her own with ‘Lone, Lonely Town’. Wonder’s ’66 classic ‘Hey Love’ is the crowning glory of a faultless dig through the crates. 7/10
