In 1976, Thelma Houston released a cover of Don’t Leave Me This Way. The original song was recorded in 1975 by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes as an album track. However, it did reach the charts in the US, number 3 on the disco chart. Motown had thought of Diana Ross covering the song, but eventually gave it to Thelma Houston. It made it to number 1 in the US soul, club and normal chart. In the UK, it made it to number 13. In the eighties, the Communards also recorded the song, reaching number 1 in the UK. Enjoy

Song of the day: The Supremes- Stop! In The Name Of Love

Oh yes, Diana Ross! And of course the Supremes! Is that not something nice which Motown brought forth? I must confess I like Motown a lot, but this group is absolutely one of the best parts of Motown. Of course it’s an oldie from the sixties, but does that matter? No, because the record is still the same. Still great! And well, live they were also good, so I chose a live performance as video for today. What I especially like in the video is the start. The presentator says something about their long hair, and that’s good, because they are girls. Absolutely a reaction on the Beatles!
