Some of these may have been
released but as Motown isnt my no.1 subject any info etc would be grateful.
a superb Eddie Kendricks and Norman Whitfield compostion called
"I Know how to love her"
did this ever get released.
The Soul Brothers
"All the Time"
An early Temptations track
supposedly wrote by
Berry and Robert Gordy called
"come back my love"
Theres an instrumental that all I know about is that
Sandra or is it Saundra Edwards
anyway the lead of the Elgins
was supposedly due to record a vocal track to it but never did and was left in the vaults.
Apparantly it was marked by the producer with comments on the 10 inch acetate with remarks as
8 for arrangement
8 for performance
9 for originality
has a great sax in the background pounding away and in flys the piano etc
a storming inst.
was played on Richard Searlings Show years ago.
Others of interest
Jimmy Ruffin-I Gotta let you go
Marvin Gaye-Hang it on.
Gladys Horton/Marvalettes-on the other side
and a Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland and Freddie Gorman composition sung by
I Know his name.

Could "Marvin Gaye-Hang It On" be "Hanging On" from the Marvin Gaye Lost and Found CD?

Does anyone know how I can hear the songs that are JD 164 - dated 1963?
For reference take a look in Reg Bartlett's book, his serial number S 5202 (page 259).
I'm very interestd in the songs by The Magnetics and The Versatones. Could these be the same groups that recorded for the Magic City and Alrite/Bonnie labels?

The Jimmy Ruffin tunes in question have been released. I Know How To Love Her- A Cellarful of Motown; I Gotta Let You Go- This Is Northern Soul Volume 2. The Marvelettes- On The Other Side- is found on the Essential Collection: The Very Best of The Marvelettes.
Surprisingly, Mr. Lester relinquished a chance to plug I Know His Name by the Velvelettes on their Very Best Of collection. So I'll do him a favor.

Which songs are those then as I dont have the book to which you refer.
I know of Versatones "Dr.J. and Mr.H." and "The Company Song" [I think]. Got first on tape but I thought it was out on some compilation. Also got "Words" by Magnetics although I was told it was by Majestics who were early form of Monitors.
Again track on tape which I lent out recently. I thought Manship had booted that on LP he did years ago.
