A Tamla Motown Collection – Part 9

Junior Walker & The All Stars – Shotgun – TMG 509

Despite the commercial failure of its first instrumental release, Earl Van Dyke’s – All for You, EMI persisted with their release schedule and issued this classic saxophone cut on their new Tamla Motown label. A great mod favourite, it’s longevity has made up for its disappointing early sales and, although not as well-known as Junior’s later hit, Roadrunner, it still gets plenty of plays among Motown aficionados.
