Kim Weston MGM CD available on eBay

Does anyone have any knowledge whether this CD is a bootleg or an original? It is difficult to determine from the listing. The price is astronomical. Nothing in the listing leads me to believe it is legitimate, but I really do not know.

Kim Weston - He's Alright

I'm listening to the Motortown Revue Vol. 2 tonight. I'm enjoying He's Alright by Kim Weston and wonder if there was ever a studio version of the song.

I noticed that the song has a Jobete copyright. I also looked at her 2-CD anthology and don't see the song there.

I just thought it curious that such a great song wasn't recorded in the studio, but was performed on the tour.

Bobby Taylor and The Vancouvers

There have been numerous discussions regarding Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers etc on the forum. I haven't yet seen one which addresses my query. When I listen to the album ( first time on release in the 60s, ) it didn't sound like the normal well produced Motown album. It was rougher and less embellished, maybe rawer. Initially I was disappointed because it didn't have the Motown production values. My query: was this because Motoen allowed the group to record their own sessions as opposed to Motown bringing in their own musicians etc? I love this album but it is the rawness which appeals. Does this resonate with anybody else out there ? Mike
