How Music Changed

    This is the second Motown show in a row that does not feature very many hits, but that doesn’t mean that the music and its history isn’t interesting. As this show attests, many of Motown’s classic acts were waning, while the newer acts were having a harder time getting established.

    This show tells a significant part of that story, featuring the following;

    I’d Still Love You – Ivy Joe

    In These Changing Times – The Four Tops

    Pass the Plate – The Crusaders

    Dyambo (Weary Day Is Over) – Hugh Masekela & the Union of South Africa

    Uncle Tom – Arthur Adams

    What Is Love – The Stylists

    Crazy About the La La La – Smokey Robinson & the Miracles

    Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology) – Marvin Gaye

    If I Could Give You the Whole World – Hearts of Stone

    The Reverend John B. Daniels – Ken Christie & the Sunday People

    Candy Apple Red – R. Dean Taylor

    I Just Want to Celebrate – Rare Earth
