Faces “I Wish It Would Rain (With a Trumpet)”
from You Can Make Me Dance, Sing or Anything: 1970-1975 (Rhino 2015) N —Live version of the Temptations hit recorded live at the 1973 Reading Festival. Penned by Barrett Strong, Norman Whitfield, and Roger Penzabene.
Holly Golightly “What You See”
from Slowtown Now! (Damaged Goods 2015) N —Written by Holly Golightly and a throwback to the albums she was releasing before making albums with Lawyer Dave as Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs. Which I think is a great thing. Also, she should always have Bruce Brand play drums on her recordings

from The Motown Sound: The Complete Albums and More (Hip-O Select/Motown Records 2012) —1969 instrumental version of the Gladys Knight & The Pips song written by Norman Whitfield, Janie Bradford, and Barrett Strong. Produced by Norman Whitfield.
The Politicians “Free your Mind”
from Holland-Dozier-Holland: The Complete 45s Collection (Harmless 2014) —Music bed. 1972 instrumental a-side for the Hot Wax label written by Holland, Dozier, and Holland.
Joni Wilson “(Let Hurt Put You In The) Loser's Seat”
from Ian Levine's Solid Stax Sensations (Kent Records 2015) N —This is one cool track. 1971 version of the Parliaments song produced by George Clinton and featuring backing vocals by the Parliaments. Recorded in Detroit and released on the Volt label in 1971.
