OK, so not a Motown artist. However in the UK Dusty was a huge fan and supporter of Motown culminating in the Ready Steady Go! 1965 special featuring Supremes, Miracles, Temptations and Martha with whom she sang 'Wishin' & Hopin''. She recorded and performed many Motown songs with her favourite being 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough'. In 1966 she asked Val & Nick if she could have it but was refused as they said that they needed it for a Motown artist. Sadly she never did record it. Today 16th April 2019 Dusty would have been 80. She was arguably the best female singer to come out of the UK. Here are just a few of her songs.
