Quite possibly the funkiest and nastiest thing to come out of Motown, Poontang most probably shocked Berry Gordy Jr. right out of his million-dollar 10-bedroom mansion!
“Earthquake Shake” is a song that is both brilliant and mental in equal measure. A psychedelic-disco-funk mash-up with delightfully crazy lyrics, it’s a wonderful insight into the mind of Norman Whitfield. It never even saw single release in the US or UK and never got the recognition it deserves!

Despite the brief hard rock interval mid-way through the track, “I’m A Fool For You” is an endlessly enjoyable and delightfully funky listening experience I would recommend to anyone!

This is the lost Motown gem. A masterpiece in my opinion, one of my favourite songs of all time – and the inspiration for creating this very website. It’s funky (really funky), it’s sassy, it’s soulful, it’s smooth – it’s everything; AMAZING lyrics, BRILLIANT performances from everyone involved, CRACKING backing instrumentation – the LOT. Marvellous!
