Inspired by my good friend Jo Wallace’s brilliant series of Soul Satisfaction Motown compilation CD’s and spurred on by her exhortations for me to love my records more this year, I decided to fish out My motown LPs and put a podcast together.
Rather than go for a run of well known hits, I’ve decided to include LP only tracks; i.e. those that didn’t see a 45 release but maybe should have done. Quite how “What More Can A Boy Ask For” remained unissued is a mystery to me.
A good few of these have been played out at soul nights so will be familiar to some of you but I hope you enjoy it anyway.
