Claps! Fingerclicks! Tambourines! Tight-ass drumming! Motown provides. A few surprises this time round: Smokey's rather mature and strikingly accurate relationship songs. Also, sound-wise Motown is the preview to Spector methinks.

Because there's something fatiguing about listening to the Motown label non-stop, I selected Accuradio's subchannel Sixties: SubSoul for a bit more variety. Some faves:

Ball of Confusion (That's What the World Is Today)
The Temptations (great count-in)

Uptight (Everything's Alright)
Stevie Wonder

Ooo Baby Baby
The Miracles

I Was Made to Love Her
Stevie Wonder (right, note great guitar-work, backing vox, musical tension/drama)

Money (That's What I Want)
Barrett Strong

Land of 1000 Dances
Wilson Pickett (rock out! The drummer can almost not keep up)

I Only Have Eyes For You
The Flamingos (such sweetness and feel, deep backing vocals, it's crying out for a Lynch film all its own. I love this song.) (lo fi mp3)

Shop Around
The Miracles (amazing advice for 1961, listen to yo momma! Try and get a bargain, son!)
