 A gem indeed - Motown's quality control department really slipped up by shelving this track for twenty five years. "Suspicion" first came to prominence in the early nineties when a handful of bootleg copies were in circulation
among DJ's on the nothern scene - back in the days when I went regularly
to northern do's it just HAD to be played. Why on earth "Goodnight Irene" got
both a US and UK release when Motown were sitting on this treasure is one
of the great Motown mysteries.

It has been issued on 45 a number of times over the years but there's never been a legitimate 45 - they're all bootlegs. The only legal issues have been on CD.

The Originals must be the most under-rated of all Motown groups, I think their
big problem was that most of their records needed a few plays to be really
appreciated, their singles sort of crept up on you rather than hit you over the head. "I'm Someone Who Cares" is another of their neglected gems.

 For Motown fans, this record is considered a 'gem'. I gather it was brought back to Northern Soul clubs as a 'find', when certain collectors/dealers went to the States looking for unreleased numbers to meet the voracious demand in the late Sixties and early Seventies by Northern club members and Soul fans. Certainly, among Motown-loving friends, this always makes their Top 5.

I had wondered if it was available anywhere as a 7", so it would qualify for 45Cat. And there it was !

The perfect excuse to introduce this fabulous number (I feel sure Davie, for one, will agree) to those who don't know it.
