Suggestion: Diana Ross & the Supremes Greatest Hits (1967) Vinyl Reissue

Not sure if this would generate enough interest, but considering how much of a huge seller DRATS' Greatest Hits (1967) was, I would love to see a vinyl reissue to celebrate it's 50th anniversary next year...complete with the original gatefold, Motown inner sleeves and of course, the portrait poster.

I have three copies of this set but wanted to put it out there, in case Universal is considering doing any more vinyl reissues, on par with the latest 40th anniversary reissue of Diana Ross '76.

James Burke, Five Stairsteps Singer Who Crooned ‘O-o-h Child,’ Dead at 70

James Burke, a member of the classic Chicago soul group the Five Stairsteps died last Friday, February 19th. He was 70. Burke’s brother and bandmate, Dennis Burke, confirmed James’ death to Rolling Stone, adding that the cause was pneumonia but unrelated to Covid-19 complications.
Formed in the mid-1960s, the Five Stairsteps scored a string of hits, including their 1970 classic “O-o-h Child,” to earn the moniker, “the First Family of Soul.” Burke family patriarch, Clarence Burke, Sr., a former Chicago police detective, formed and managed the group, which consisted of his four sons, Clarence Jr., James, Dennis and Keni, and daughter, Alohe. The band’s name came from their mother, Betty, who said her children resembled a staircase when lined-up by age and height.
Dennis remembered James as “very creative” — a guitarist, songwriter and singer, who, along with Clarence Jr., served as the anchor of the Five Stairsteps. “They really had a focus on the music that helped to bring us all together into the industry,” he said.

Songs with dances in the title

Mickey's Monkey
Twistin' Postman
Come On Do the Jerk
Can You Jerk Like Me?
Shotgun
Hitchhike

All of the above songs were original compositions released on various Motown labels, and all contain the names of dances.

I know there are more. Can you name more songs released by Motown that contain the names of dances that are NOT covers?
