Four Tops Second Album

I'm just listening to this outstanding album and the following thought occurred to me.....

Is there any track on the album that isn't up to the standard of being a single release?

HDH really produced the goods on this album!

One of my favorite's by these fine fillies from Philly. Released February 2, 1981 this project turned up the energy from their previous work with The Chic Organization. This writer gives a great retrospective on a great recording. https://www.albumism.com/features/si...-retrospective

Paul Riser tribute

Did anyone beside me join this presentation today, wow it was remarkable. Had Ray Parker Jr., Paul Riser, Jack Ashford . Even had cameos from Bob Olhsson , Ed Wolfrum, Stevie Wonder and Richie Sambora and many more. Three plus hours of Motown history- remarkable, a once in a life time.

My Guy - Miss Ray Pressing

Is anyone able to identify/confirm the bootleg copies of Mary Wells "My Guy" that were pressed up by Miss Ray?

There's a strong case for the white label copy below that has no promotional/demo/audition/sample copy text, weird catalog number formatting and typeface, slightly lower sound quality, and although it looks like an ARP press, no ARP stamp is present in the runout.

Songs with dances in the title

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

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?
