Entertainment, Music
The late 1960s had seen a growing number of 'personal' albums: records written, performed and produced by the artists themselves. By 1970 the trend had yet to infiltrate Motown, which was sticking to the same album pattern it had throughout its existence - a couple of hit singles, filled out with numerous covers of popular songs and stock songs culled from the Jobete archives.
