Two early R&B sides from Detroit's legendary Tamla stable, and two tracks which shed some light on the foundations of the then-undefined "Motown sound." When Barrett Strong recorded "Money" in 1961, it became Tamla's biggest seller to date. Prior to that recording, however, Tamla's output was rather more exploratory, and here we find on "Misery" a beautifully downbeat piece of soulful melancholy with superb instrumentation. Earlier still, 1959's "Let's Rock" is a low-fi, uptempo soul rocker.
