A Tamla Motown Collection – Part 36

The Lewis Sisters – You Need Me – TMG 536

This echo-laden female vocal was produced by Berry Gordy himself. It sounds a little like the Motown boss was losing touch with the direction that his company’s sound was heading because, even for 1965, this sounds somewhat dated,

The sisters, Helen and Kay, were songwriters and occasional backing vocalists and after a couple of forays into the studio as recording artists, they returned to the backrooms where they had more success.

The UK release is quite a rarity, with this demo pressing valued at £250 and the regular issue being like hen’s teeth.
