    We are finally free of our obligation to play “every single Motown A-side” from their Detroit era, but that doesn’t mean we’re done with Motown. We intend to carry this a bit further, but without the intense scrutiny that applied to the label’s ‘magical’ era.

    From this point forward, we switch into hyper-drive and cover most of the high points from the next 20 years of Motown’s history. That translates into ‘more hits, less obscurities” for the next few shows, as proved by the following line-up of tracks for this show;

    1) Floy Joy – The Supremes

    2) In and Out of My Life – Martha Reeves & the Vandellas

    3) T.L.C. – P.J.

    4) Good Morning Heartache – Diana Ross

    5) Ben – Michael Jackson

    6) Papa Was a Rolling Stone – The Temptations

    7) Superstition – Stevie Wonder

    8) Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye) - Gladys Knight & the Pips

    9) Keep On Truckin’ - Eddie Kendricks
