Super Score at the Record Store
Scotty Karate picked up this used gem at the record store over the weekend. The Motown Story features 5 albums filled with the greatest hits born in the Motor City. Each song includes a mini intro from a famous song writer and/or producer - think Stevie Wonder, Martha Reeves, and Marvin Gaye. It's really fantastic to hear such famous voices casually detailing how each classic was born.
The best part? When Scotty told me about this find, I responded with a comment on how underrated the song Shotgun by Jr. Walker and the All Stars is. He opened his phone to show me a text that he sent to his dad the previous day that detailed the same thought. Out of all of the hits, we both praised the same jam. I guess great minds really do think alike.
