Daivd Ruffin’s first solo record after his stint with the Temptations yielded this great track, “My Whole World Ended (The Moment You Left Me)”.
Despite being a sad lyrical theme, the music is very upbeat and really puts you in a good mood. I love the guitar licks throughout the song, they really drive along the rhythm with some funky flare.

You’ve Really Got A Hold On Me was one of three Motown hits that The Beatles covered. The others were ‘Money (That’s What I Want)’ and ‘Please Mr. Postman’. All three feature John on lead vocals. While Motown, under the direction of Berry Gordy (above) was well underway to becoming a huge success, a business collaboration with the The Beatles proved to help everyone involved.
