Product Description:

Detroit's Contours had a huge hit in 1962 with "Do You Love Me," a fiery blast of rough-edged R&B (featuring lead singer Billy Gordon), but the group quickly became an anomaly at Motown, where carefully crafted pop-soul was the order of the day. They managed hits with "Shake Sherry" and the Smokey Robinson tune "First I Look at the Purse," but numerous lineup changes (future Temptations singer Dennis Edwards was a member for a while) and a sound that moved against the grain at Motown soon idled them on the back burner. The Contours enjoyed a revival in the late '80s when the movie Dirty Dancing prominently featured the original "Do You Love Me" on the soundtrack, which led to the group re-recording several of their hits for a new market. Unfortunately the magic was long gone, and the 1980s versions on this collection have none of the raw power and emotion of the originals. ~ Steve Leggett
