By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on January 11, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Although there have been many covers of Motown songs, I've not seen as many collections of Motown covers as I might have expected, so that makes this one particularly interesting.

One of a series of themed compilations drawn from the Pye vaults, this collection brings together a diverse range of British sixties covers of Motown songs, famous and obscure. The standout track here is Petula's cover of Dancing in the street - it is exactly the type of song that Petula was having hits with at the time and her version is just as good as the original. Petula also does a fine cover of Tears of a clown, though her equally fine cover of Reach out I'll be there is omitted - Jackie Trent's excellent version is included instead.

As ever, the compilations in this series include recordings by long-forgotten singers. There are three then-teenage girls - Tawny Reed (Needle in a haystack), Jan Panter (Put yourself in my place) and Lorraine Silver (When the Lovelight starts shining through his eyes) and several male groups including Timebox (I'll always love you), the Bystanders (Stubborn kind of fellow ), the Trends (The way you do the things you do), the Undertakers (Money that's what I want) and the New Formula (I want to go back there).

Some names are not as obscure as they might appear. Carl Wayne was lead singer of the Move (who achieved fame with Flowers in the rain, Blackberry way and other major UK hits) but before that he recorded the wonderful cover of My girl that is on this set. Tony Jackson was originally with the Searchers (represented here by I'll be doggone) but later formed another group, the Vibrations, represented here by Bye bye baby (their only UK hit) and You beat me to the punch.
