It’s been busy at work, and with the blustery weather as well the whole week has felt like a bit of a whirl.

I need something to relax me. This one from The Contours fits the bill perfectly.

Most of The Contours output that I am familiar with was in the classic early Motown uptempo mould but this track from late ‘64, the B side to “Can You Jerk Like Me”, is a beautiful ballad. It was written and produced by a certain Mr Robinson. I’m no expert on The Contours so I can’t tell you which member of the group is singing lead here, but he sure sounds like Smokey too.
