03. Christine Cooper – Heartaches Away My Boy

by standardliss

A delightfully cheese ball version (rip off?) of the Supremes “Stop In The Name Of Love.” The similarities probably aren’t a coincidence as Bernie Lowe, the head of Cameo-Parkway, was “insanely jealous” of Berry Gordy and Motown’s massive success. He essentially tried to create his own version of Motown in Philly, whatever he did it might not have been the most original but this song is a beloved Northern Soul anthem, some consider it the epitome of the style, an absolute belter!
