Motown's Great Interpretations
1977 Compilation Still In Shrink. “A Fake Concept Album Featuring Motown Artists Singing The Hits Of Others -- Fake Because All The Songs Were Recorded Years Earlier And Were Album Cuts For The Artists. Motown Simply Assembled Them On One LP And Called Them "Great Interpretations." Smokey Robinson And The Miracles' "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" Is Flaccid And Uninspiring. Diana Ross' "I Love You (Call Me)" Doesn't Compare To Aretha Franklin's, And The Dynamic Superiors' "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" Is Overblown And Campy. The Best Remakes Include "Hello Stranger" By The Supremes And The Four Tops; "My Whole Ended (The Moment You Left Me)" By The Spinners; "Wichita Lineman" By The Originals; Thelma Houston's "Me And Bobby Mcgee" And "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" By Jimmy And David Ruffin.” – Andrew Hamilton, All Music Guide
