    Let George Do It - Campaign song written by Berry Gordy

    This link tells a great deal about the promotional record written in 1958 by Berry Gordy and Tyron Carlo and performed by Jackie Wilson. It reportedly exists in both a 45 and also on a 78 rpm.

    Just wondering, has anyone ever heard this song or whether it was ever released in recent time on any recorded source, i. e. CD of a collection of
    Berry Gordy songs or Jackie Wilson performances?

    I'd really love to hear the song. Thanks.

    Thanks a million for locating this. I am certain many other forum members either did not know about it or they have never heard the actual song. Appreciate it.

    From the Motown album "A Bit Of Wigan" a tribute to George Formby (various artists). "Let George Do It" was a 1940 film but in the USA it was called "To Hell With Hitler" (hope that causes no offence to anyone here).

    My fave track is "Leaning On A Lamp Post" by The Temptations.

    Mysterysinger, my favorite tracks on that blinking album are ''When I'm Cleaning Windows'' by the Jackson 5 and ''Bless 'Em All'' by Martha Reeves and The Vandellas.

    They were good tracks too - I remember Diana Ross and The Supremes on "Mother What'll I Do Now" a kind of precursor to "I'm Livin' In Shame".
