Can Motown artifacts ever be more desirable than this February 13th. 1965 7" acetate - an unissued take of the Four Tops at their very best - does it get any better than this? we think not!

Before you is, I am assured a different take, tweaked after the initial AY-LL-113207 Motown release. But this readjustment of "levels" of sound and pitch re-mix AY-LL-117114 has such tiny differences, I find them far too subtle to detect. So for all purposes it will to most everyone sound identical to the Motown release. But does no detract in the slightest to sheer attractiveness of this historical Motown studio work.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - dedicated Motown pupils will, like me be drooling at the thought of having this iconic Motown studio-cut be part of their collection of treasures.

stop, look and listen - resist its gorgeousness...if you can
