(come ‘round here) i’m the one you need question

i know 1966 was an extraordinarily busy year for holland/dozier/holland. they wrote a varietyof hits: reach out & standing in the shadows for the tops, my world is empty and you can’t hurry love for the supremes ... plus hits for the isley bros, jr. walker, the elgins, just to name the tip of the iceberg.
what i want to know is how they came about to write the rocker “(come ‘round here) i’m the one you need” for the miracles. the song sounds tailor made for levi and the tops and it seems as if they would have been screaming to record it! i can even imagine the supremes taking a stab at it. considering how few songs h/d/h wrote for smokey and how prolific smokey was on his own, i’ve always been perplexed how this collaboration came about. it is one damn fine tune and smokey and the miracles sing their hearts out ... but does anyone know the story about how these two powerhous teams got together? i’d love to know! thanks

Trivia Question RE: Neil Diamond and Bobbie Gentry

I was playing a new Neil Diamond collection today (courtesy of that recent Amazon sale) and an interesting trivia question popped into my head. I promise I will not drag it out and if no one guesses, I will reveal the answer in a day or two.

So even though neither is considered a "soul" singer, can you figure out what Neil Diamond and Bobbie Gentry have in common?
