They Called Him Crazy Mike

Has it been 'only' fifty years since Michael Edward Campbell, Tom Baird, Bob Babbit, Russ Terrana and Billy Batson, among others, worked on Michael's 1974 self-titled album? Also known as Mike Campbell as a musician in his group, Scorpion, and as Michael Champion in his later career as an actor. He was in superb company in Scorpion, as his bandmates were Bob Babbit, Ray Monette and Andrew Smith - the group that played on many of the Stoney & Meat Loaf debut album tracks. The 'Michael Edward Campbell' album was recorded at the Motown Recording Studios and also at The Record Plant in L.A. Highlights from the album include 'Roxanne [[You Sure Got A Fine Design)' and 'Roll It Over' and it's a very strong rock album with, obviously, some great musicianship. Alas, it joins a host of other white artist albums that Motown just couldn't get over the line: think Severin Browne, Reuben Howell, Stephen Cohn etc. - it's a long list. Still, at least Motown thought he was worthy of an LP release and It's one that I still enjoy. Michael Edward Campbell was crazy talented!

My copy of the LP is the Canadian release, 'Manufactured and distributed by Motown Records Canada Ltd' with its maple leaf logo. Kinda crazy too, eh?

15 best motown songs of all time - do we really need yet another list? ?????

15 Best Motown Songs of All Time

These greatest of and best of lists of Motown songs keep popping up. I could probably list my three favorite Motown songs, but i don't even know what qualities make a song great except how much you like it. To me, its a personal thing.

The composer of this list, Samuel Moore, must like Marvin Gaye's I Heard It Through the Grapevine a lot. He listed it as number one and as number 12. An obvious error. Wonder if he meant to list Gladys and Pips' Grapevine as number 12.

1. I Heard It Through the Grapevine by Marvin Gaye
2. Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
3. My Girl by The Temptations
4. Stop! In the Name of Love by The Supremes
5. You Can’t Hurry Love by The Supremes
6. Dancing in the Street by Martha and the Vandellas
7. I’ll Be There by The Jackson 5
8. Baby Love by The Supremes
9. You Keep Me Hangin’ On by The Supremes
10. I Want You Back by The Jackson 5
11. Reach Out I’ll Be There by Four Tops
12. I Heard It Through the Grapevine by Marvin Gaye
13. Where Did Our Love Go by The Supremes
14. What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye
15. Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours by Stevie Wonder

Link below shows entire list and his opinions of the rankings he gave them
