Awesome, didn't know half of these recordings existed, here in USA, we didn't get a lot of the Motown releases that were popular in the UK...thanks Steve!!!

It was released as a B-side on Motown 1275 in 1973 - it was scheduled for MoWest 5030 in 1972 but shelved, and subsequently issued on The Complete Motown Singles 12B.

I think I actually love CC's version of Head to Toe more than the Miracle's version!

Discovering Motown

It's a great record. Thanks for all the kind words RHM!

Love the Chuck Jackson cut. The Four Tops also do a version that is stunningly beautiful too.

Discovering Motown

You'll get to hear the Tops version again before too long!

For some reason, the station software unexpectedly burped out a bonus helping of Marvin and Tammi's "Keep On Lovin' Me Honey" about 40 minutes in - I've kept it in as a reminder this is live radio! :)
