Performer Notes
  • Liner Note Author: Jim Stewart .
  • A lot of Contours, including three tracks by Dennis Edwards: "Your Love Grows More Precious Everyday," "It's So Hard Being a Loser," and "Baby Hit and Run." Joe Stubbs explodes on "Just a Little Misunderstanding," and gravel-voiced Billy Gordon, the voice most associated with the Contours, handles the rest. Critics of Motown's homogenized sound forget about "Do You Love Me," "Shake Sherrie," "First I Look at the Purse," "Don't Let Her Be Your Baby," "Can You Do It," and "Can You Jerk Like Me." The instructional "You Better Get in Line" is a solid, but often omitted recording. Contours fans will relish three early tunes: "Whole Lotta Woman," "I'm Grateful," and "The Stretch." Two gripes: The inclusion of "You Get Ugly," a bad novelty song, and the omission of "That Day When She Needed Me." ~ Andrew Hamilton
