✨✧ Marvin GayeI Heard It Through The Grapevine (aka In The Groove) (180 gram purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Tamla, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Marvin's definitely in the groove on this set – cooking on all burners with a host of late 60s Motown hits – bad-stepping his way towards some of the more mature moments to come in the 70s! The album's probably best remembered for the cut "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype!

Eddie KendricksHit Man ... LP
Tamla, 1975. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Eddie certainly was the "hit man" on this one – a tight album of hard stepping soul tracks, mostly cut in Eddie's famous "boogie" mode of the mid 70s!

Smooth mellow grooves, in the style that Eddie pioneered, and which he still did better than most.

Sophisticated soul is right – as The Marvelettes were one of the groups who really helped give Motown a sense of class in the 60s – but who could also balance their sense of poise with some nice depth on their vocals!

Tamla, 1982. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A slightly more-grooving record than some of Smokey's others from the time – done in a style that rolls around in a mostly-midtempo mode.

A great one by The Miracles!
