 Swept For You Baby

....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 a 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.

 Images of both sides uploaded and play checked. B Side plays "Swept For You Baby" as advertised so attached to this TMG 614. It's therefore not the mis-labelled version as mentioned in Notes here.

 Thanks Davie,

In which case I think we keep this one, but with a note about the mis-labelled B-side.

"Unless, of course, you know different..."

"Thank you, Esther.

 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 I don't think it's a case of it being withdrawn more like the label's being corrected when a second pressing run was done.

 I'm getting conflicting information as to whether this or TMG 614 is the withdrawn version (different B-side). RRPG says this one was withdrawn, but other sources say TMG 614 was. Anyone?
