Every Single Motown 'A-Side': Almost History
Episode date - October 16, 2009
This is our 68th episode dedicated to Motown Records and all of its subsidiary labels.
Our story remains chronological,but we have reached a point in the mid-70s where the label’s relevancy began to take a significant hit. For that reason, our coverage is more of a gloss-over for this period, rather than the microscopic analysis we utilized up until now.
Since we are ‘panning back’, so to speak, we can cover the remainder of the decade in one show. Next show, we’ll complete our coverage of Motown entirely.
Here’s a list of songs covered in this show;
Sir Duke – Stevie Wonder
Easy/Three Times a Lady/Sail On/Still – The Commodores
With You I’m Born Again – Billy Preston & Syreeta
Endless Love – Diana Ross & Lionel Richie
One Day in Your Life – Michael Jackson
Truly/All Night Long/Hello/Say You Say Me - Lionel Richie
Cruisin’ – Smokey Robinson
Being With You – Smokey Robinson
Give It to Me Baby – Rick James
Square Biz – Teena Marie
