....just to keep Catagna45 on his toes, another little Side B gem from the incomparable Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, out of his 1966 album "Away We A Go-Go".
".......you're like a broom, I'm like dust in the room....." Smokey sings, and we believe him, as he recalls his loved up infatuation with the laydee of his dreams.
There is lovely tinkly bell sound, from a vibraphone I guess, played in unison with Marv Tarplin's (?) guitar, on right channel.
The older, sound of a Motown piano, and melancholy notes from multi tracked trombones, plus strings add to the overall feel of a sad song.
Drums, Bass, and the Miracles in back, with Claudette Robinson providing back up vocals no doubt.
I bought this as a new release - the first copies have the b-side labelled as
"Swept For You Baby" but they play "Come Spy With Me". Later copies
were titled correctly. I don't think it's a case of it being withdrawn more like the label's being corrected when a second pressing run was done.
