Motown Soul, New York Girls

It's time to go back to the Motown vaults. Obviously, I've followed my usual pattern of trying to select a few tracks that were not global hits. It's pretty obvious why the Honest Men's “Baby” didn't make it. It's utter shit. I'm amazed that they even got session time for it. I can only imagine that Berry Gordy thought its sub-Beach Boys sound would appeal to white teens. Nah! Not even the most crew-cut, saccharine-up, bible-bashing christian would go for this turkey. In fact there's a few turkey's in the Motown list. C'est la vie. Change is as good as a rest. Short Long's 2 minutes 45 seconds is worth a spin, and there's always 1971.
