This is the "..Looking here Looking there Searching for you everywhere version. The other "..Searching here Searching There Looking for you everywhere.." is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAiyOQq8z6Q

Thanks! Mine's from the US 45 (or rather from TCMS 5) - where is that alternate version from? (The album? Greatest Hits? Fourever?) I'm ashamed to say I've never noticed it before. I've been known not to bother ripping/downloading tracks I've already "got", if they're not explicitly marked as alternate versions on DFTMC or wherever.

I've probably heard and or played Baby Love 1000 times and its still a beautiful song - from the music to DR's delivery to the background vocals -its just a perfect song.

It really is, isn't it? I think it's a brilliant record, I don't make any apologies for leading off with it :)

The greatness and strength in depth of the Motown catalogue there, getting to 44 hours before playing "Baby Love".
