It doesn’t get any better than The Velvettes’ ‘Lonely, Lonely Girl Am I’. From the glorious string lift to the trio’s evocative vocals, this was perfect for the chasmic Casino, a sound that filled the room and raised the roof. Released in 1965 in the US on VIP and Tamla Motown in Canada, it goes for over £350 and is worth every penny.
Backed with another Motown legend, Gladys Knight & The Pips on the much-bootlegged and magically sassy ‘No One Could Love You More’. Original Motown black label copies go for around £150.
Both remastered for the ultimate vintage Motown vibe.
