Musical palate cleanser, one for the old folks edition

Actually, it’s a two-fer today.

Here’s Smokey Robinson and the Miracles with “The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game”, from their 1971 album One Dozen Roses.

The vocals are stunning — it’s Smokey, after all — but I never liked this version of the song nearly as much as the original released five years earlier by the Marvelettes as the B-side of a single.

Never thought I’d swoon over a clavinet solo, but the one in the middle here is perfect.  There’s a tinge of sadness to their version that’s missing from Smokey’s remake that really gets me.
