Musical palate cleanser, bring back that sunny day edition

Another earworm got stuck in my brain this weekend, so I thought I’d share.  This one will take you back.

Recorded in 1968, but inexplicably not released at the time (you can find it in a 2000 boxed set retrospective), it’s The Supremes’ cover of Dennis Yost & The Classics IV “Stormy”.

That patented Funk Brothers rhythm section action propelling things along nicely and Diana Ross’ incomparable vocals (the first time she kicks her voice up an octave is just electric) – ahhh.  Enjoy.

    Some of the best Motown songs were album cuts that were never promoted as singles. This is a perfect example.
