Motown Goes Funky

with 2 comments

A neat duo of reissues is on the way later this month from Funkytown Grooves – two R&B women on Motown Records in the 1980s.

The label is prepping expanded reissues of Stacy Lattisaw’s Take Me All the Way (which spawned the Top 5 R&B and Dance hit “Nail It to the Wall”) and Set My Love in Motion, a 1981 LP by Syreeta Wright (the late ex-wife of Stevie Wonder). Each release will be accompanied by two 12″ single tracks each.
