Their biggest hit, Do You Love Me, was originally intended for The Temptations, but on the very day writer and producer Berry Gordy was looking for the group to record the single, The Tempts were at church listening to a gospel concert. Fortunately, hanging around the Hitsville Studio was another group equally talented and just as desperate for a hit, The Contours. If anything, their vocal style combined with their stage act made Do You Love Me a better fit for them than it would have been for The Temptations, especially with Billy Gordons dynamic lead vocals. The single was a smash (and would become one all over again in 1988 after it was featured in the film Dirty Dancing), prompting an album of much the same kind of material. The very first album released on Berry Gordys eponymous Gordy label, Do You Love Me did good business without ever troubling the chart.

I actually was dumb enough to buy 3 different CD’s hoping one would have the 45 version but no- all have this horrible cut. I ended up recording the 45 version off one of the youtubes onto my computer and then putting it on a CD.
I wanted to warn anyone that is looking for the original Whole Lotta Woman to NOT buy this CD. I’m posting this on each of the CD’s I bought.
What I received from this exact page is a 1981, 1988 CD, MOTD-5415, which has a reissue version of the 'Title song', now at a very overextended 6:33*minute 'Disco-type' lousy DO YOU LOVE ME.
There is also NO ASIN number stated, only 0 50109 -5415 -2 2
If you want the original 1962 Mowtown Hit, do NOT purchase this listed CD item. You WILL be extremely Dis-satisfied as I am. This listed CD is definately NOT for collectors, unless you only want the CD photo 'Cover-ART.' [...]
There are at least 2 CD versions, same title.
The original HIT track is 2:52. On the CD I got via 'seller', aka: mrmusic has an Unlisted 6:33 'discoized' poor version of the hit title song, the rest sound more like Smokey Robinson [Mowtown], who composed many of the original Contours tracks.
The CD MOTD 5415 is not the original Do You Love Me 1962 HIT.
I'd suggest do NOT buy the MOTD 5415.
