        Absolutely…… I love Let’s Get It On

      All of them were fab, and many performed as session musicians on each others’ recordings anyway because of being tied into Motown contracts. For me, The Temptations were the best. Great music reminiscent of great times 🙂

      A lot of terrific artists out there! Just as I’m reading this, some distant neighbours are having a garden party with a Rod Stewart tribute act playing This Old Heart of Mine. when the disco took over it started with the original Motown version – I like a Rod Stewart tribute but I know which version was better!
