A. Little Stevie Woinder - Contract On LoveB. Bob Kayli - Tie Me Tight
LITTLE STEVIE WONDER cut six singles for Tamla before losing the “Little” moniker. “Contract On Love” was his first serious Hitsville production following the novelty flop “Little Water Boy” in December 1962. The distinctive handclap beat that announces the dance track would be recycled to great effect on The Supremes’ 1964 hit “Where Did Our Love Go”.
BOB KAYLI, aka Robert Gordy, is the younger brother of Motown boss Berry Gordy. “Tie Me Tight” was written by Robert and marked his first recording for the company, which also features The Supremes on backing vocals.
