Frank Wilson “Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)”
from The Complete Motown Singles, Vol. 5: 1965 (Hip-O Select / Motown 2006) —This is one of the rarest Motown records in existence - only two genuine original vinyl copies are know to exist. Luckily, this single can be found on this 6-CD collection of every Motown A & B side that came out in 1965 - Written by Frank Wilson.


The Contours “Danger, Heartbreak Dead Ahead”
