Good Motown stuff from 1966-67

"This CD was originally one of Motown's occasional collections of its then-recent hits-in this case from around 1966-67. In the early 1990s, thiese were released on CD.
This is a pretty good grab bag here. Most of these are fondly remembered by those who were there, but have been forgotten by oldies radio programmers today. The good stuff includes Gladys Knight's wonderful "Everybody Needs Love," The Temptations' "All I Need" (the Funk Brothers' Band give this tune a Supremes' gloss), Jr. Walker's gritty and soulful version of the Supremes' "Come See About Me" and the Marvelette's underrated masterpiece-the fondly remembered by those who were there, "My baby Must Be a Magician "Cause He's Sure Got the Magic Touch." The bass into by Temptation Melvin Franklin is just one of the many wonderful things about this tune. Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell are represented at their best with "Youe Precious Love" and the original "Aint No Mountain High Enough."
In either case, this is a great sampler of Motown music that has not been done to death by oldies stations."
