Every Single Motown 'A-Side': Beyond The Magical Era
Episode date - October 2, 2009
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;
Floy Joy – The Supremes
In and Out of My Life – Martha Reeves & the Vandellas
T.L.C. – P.J.
Good Morning Heartache – Diana Ross
Ben – Michael Jackson
Papa Was a Rolling Stone – The Temptations
Superstition – Stevie Wonder
Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye) - Gladys Knight & the Pips
Keep On Truckin’ - Eddie Kendricks
