Before you do anything rash…
THE MOTOWN DRINKING COMPANION (VOL. 1)
As the dog days of summer drag us through the end of August and into the golden California September the weather lends itself to many simple patio drinking nights. Those sad, soulful nights now have a sad, soulful soundtrack. Ten choice cuts from Motown’s prime. Open a crisp Banquet or pour yourself some whisky and join me under the stained moon (clothing optional, it’s hot out here!):
The Supremes- Where Did Our Love Go?
Smokey Robinson & The Miracles- The Tracks Of My Tears
Marvin Gaye- I Heard It Through The Grapevine
The Four Tops- Baby I Need Your Loving
The Four Tops- Do What You Gotta Do
The Main Ingredient- Everybody Plays The Fool*
Gladys Knight & the Pips- Midnight Train To Georgia
The Chi Lites- Oh Girl
Jimmy Ruffin- What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted?
Percy Sledge- When A Man Loves A Woman

*OK, I cheated, The Main Ingredient wasn’t on Motown, but I still wanted to include it. So bite it.
