This was the second single that we released by The Contours on the Motorcity label, and considering it was recorded in 1989, I think it's held up remarkably well. The Contours were one of the earliest Motown groups, coming hot on the heels of The Miracles and The Satintones. Founded by Joe Billingslea and joined soon after by Sylvester Potts. Their biggest hit was "Do You Love Me", which was an even bigger hit in 1987 when it was featured in the Patrick Swayze film, "Dirty Dancing". But having said that, it was always for those joyous, stomping, mid Sixties classics, that England, and in particular the Northern Soul scene, hero worshipped the group "Just A Little Misunderstanding", "It's So Hard Being A Loser", and "Baby Hit And Run" in particular. But it was the success of "Dirty Dancing", which gave the Contours an entire new lease of life and made them tremendously in demand. The group recorded two albums "Flashback" and "Revenge", for me, although the latter was not released, though the songs later featured on their compilation. "The Best of The Contours". I was very very proud of my work with this amazing group.
