A Couple of Songs of Love and Longing

It’s been nearly a couple of weeks since we’ve had any soul posted here, can’t quite believe that I could go that long without a bit of motown or something similar.

Here are two classic songs of lost love and longing which Motown do so well.

First up is Martha Reeves with a single from the early 70’s which did nothing at the time but has been heard regularly at soul nights over the past decade.

Martha Reeves – No One There.

Next we have the Blue Sharks version of a tune made famous by the Velvelettes one of whom Sandra Tille joined Martha Reeves as a Vandella. I prefer this version by a band that I know nothing about and have never even seen a copy of this single.

The Blue Sharks – These Things Will Keep Me Lovin’ You
