Where was "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Jean Carn recorded?

I’ve recently been wondering where “Don’t Let It Go To Your Head” by Jean Carn was recorded.

When I first heard it in the late 70s as a new US import single on Philadelphia International I was surprised that it didn’t have the expected Philly sound. Instead of the normal lush strings there was what sounded like a very small string section with double tracking and a piercing cheap sound. On listening to it more recently on CD, however, much of the sound apart from those strings is really high quality, and I can hear little Philly-type elements such as the crash cymbal and guitar. The overall mix itself sounds most un-Philly like, however.

Does anyone know the story behind the recording of this classic track?

Motown & The Grammys

How in the world did Motown not get a Grammy award until the Temptations’ Cloud Nine?

If you took what most people would agree are the top 100 or 200 songs Motown ever put out I’d bet my bottom dollar the majority of them are pre Cloud Nine

Anyone know what the deal was?

Anyone know how many pre Cloud Nine Motown nominations there were? And what songs were nominated?

Temptations Promo release Gordy G-71-B

I recently acquired this promo copy of the Temptations "Impossible Dream" b/w "Born To Love You". It does not appear on the market too often. Mine was the second copy I've seen for sale, and Popsike.com only lists 4 copies selling since 2012.

It seems like an odd pairing to me, of songs recorded essentially 3 years apart with somewhat opposing genres, IMO "easy listening" vs. a more gritty soulful track. Are any members here on the forum able to enlighten me on possibly why this promo was released?
Thank you,
