Hoopla Recommend Album of the Week

Motown Thanksgiving Celebration by Various Artists (Genre: R&B, Rock)

MoTown Thanksgiving

This short LP is not a traditional Thanksgiving themed album; but instead features five terrific songs of thanks; or actually five terrific songs and four of thanks – as I’m not sure that I Heard It Through The Grapevine qualifies as a “thankful” song; but then Marvin Gaye songs are always top-notch!

And here is the five-song playlist: 1. Dancing In The Street (Stereo) by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, 2. Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, 3. I’ll Be There by Jackson, 4. Love Is Like A Heatwave by Martha & The Vandellas & 5. I Heard It Through The Grapevine by Marvin Gaye.

And from the album, a happy and thankful song if ever there was one!

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

Have a great weekend,

Linda Reimer, SSCL
