Thank you, Detroit

July 18th, 1963

The Beatles spend the day at Abbey Road Studios, laying down some more material for their anticipated and unnamed second album.  They select some covers, including three Motown favorites.
  You Really Got a Hold on Me (Smokey Robinson and the Miracles)
  Money - That's What I Want (Barret Strong)
  Devil in Her Heart (The Donays)
  Til There Was You (from Broadway's The Music Man)

For a Detroit boy, this is a great day!  Do yourself a favor.  Click on those links and listen to that infectious Motown beat.

How odd that exactly 50 years to the day later, Detroit declares bankruptcy.
