The Contours' "Whole Lotta Woman" is a great example of the exciting early soul era, and the trend-setting sounds that were emerging from Detroit's R&B scene of the early '60s. With one foot in the raw, saltier waters of the 1950s, and the other tapping a groovier, less jagged rhythm that was about to take hold of the nation's clubs, this track sits perfectly on the cusp. Appearing here is the song's first incarnation -- and the one which made a lot of noise locally in Detroit -- as well as the reworked, "polished" version which Berry Gordy hoped would ignite nationally.
