Perhaps I put too much faith in atmosphere

Oh yes, Smoky Robinson and the Miracles are superb!
Great songs you posted. Other faves for me are "I Second that Emotion" and "The Tears of a Clown."

For Jr. Walker and The All Stars, another favorite is "Shake and Fingerpop." I love the lyric "Put on your wig, woman, we're going out to shake and fingerpop" LOL. And that wailing sax. Fun stuff.

Thanks, E. I bought "Shake And Fingerpop" at the time. What a groove! Bought "Going To A Go Go" as well and played it to death all that first evening! I think those were my only Motown singles...

As for albums, I had three Hitsville USA comps, Jr. Walker's debut with all the good stuff and a stonking instrumental album of Motown covers by Earl Van Dyke that included this one:

"I don't want to go out. I want to stay in. Get things done." (David Bowie)
