    Mysterysinger,
    I applaud your efforts to breath life into the Motown forum.

    Regarding Shorty Long...a wonderful ballad , as you say , tucked away.

    Just checked on DFTMC
    Original version cut on Bruce Channel , then Four Tops and later recorded on Shorty Long.

    Wonder why this wasn't on Shorty's ACE RECORDS cd.

    I wondered that too...

  6. Excellent post! Shorty did some wonderful things with Holland-Dozier-Holland. This one, "Function At The Junction" and a remake of "Your Love's Amazing" which is another lost, brilliant treasure.

    Truly, Shorty Long was a multi-faceted artist during all too brief run at Motown. His range ran from the comedy tinged dance music of "Function At The Junction" & "Here Comes The Judge", the sly blues of "Devil With The Blue Dress", to the sentimental "Call On Me" and the moving "I Had A Dream".

    The full title of Shorty's Ace Records CD is "Here Comes Shorty Long. . .The Complete Motown Stereo Masters". Apparently, "Call On Me" was never mixed to stereo and that's why it wasn't included. I'm guessing the same holds true for "Your Love's Amazing."

    Thank you for the info. Surprised they weren't tossed there as bonus tracks or something.
