The Temptations – My Baby – TMG 541

The Temptations third UK Tamla Motown release was another record in the build-up to their own breakthrough to pop stardom. It was another writing and production credit for the talented and prolific Smokey Robinson and his Miracles colleagues.

The title promises much from the people that brought us…

The Miracles – My Girl Has Gone – TMG 540

This is not the best known of the Miracles catalogue and as the follow-up to The Tracks of My Tears, it simply isn’t a very strong song.

The track was lifted from the Miracles album, Going To A Go Go, although I am not sure whether the single or the album actually came first.

It was written…

Tony Martin – The Bigger Your Heart Is – TMG 537

In 1965, Motown was still establishing itself as the “Sound of Young America”, although some of its signings made this slogan sound ironic. In the wake of MOR crooner Billy Eckstine, Tony martin was another artist whose best days had come and gone. Although this was his UK Tamla Motown debut (and only release), he had recorded a truly awful single…

The Lewis Sisters – You Need Me – TMG 536

This echo-laden female vocal was produced by Berry Gordy himself. It sounds a little like the Motown boss was losing touch with the direction that his company’s sound was heading because, even for 1965, this sounds somewhat dated,

The sisters, Helen and Kay, were songwriters and occasional…
