and trust me. I love 'what's going on' but I see what Gordy saw.

Those songs are not NEARLY as well-written as most of the motown catalogue. They're meandering. But that was what Marvin wanted....to focus more on the groove and less focus on the composition. Let the musicians stretch out a bit and take the catchy hooks out. Less pop and more blues.

Of course Gordy gonna be nervous about that.
