Home editing of Motown songs

Back in the day, I would try to create the single edits of Motown songs using the mechanical pause control on my cassette deck. It took some doing at times but I really enjoyed creating a usable edit from the album versions.

I remember creating edits of Papa Was A Rollin' Stone, Love Hangover, Stoned Love, Reach Out, I'll Be There [[Diana Ross) and Keep On Trucking [[damn difficult without the "cymbal crash to add).

Did you do something similar with your tape/cassette decks? Which songs did you edit?
