Kim Weston – Helpless (1968) #13 R&B, #56 Billboard Top 100

From the very first tambourine shake, any Motown fan will tell you that this song is pure HDH (Lamont Dozier/Eddie Holland/Brian Holland).  I loved it then and I love it now.

This was Kim’s second solo hit during here short tenure at Motown. So you see she wasn’t just another Marvin Gaye Duet Partner — although she did that very, very well as “Take Two Plus” proves.

The Motown label had so many talented artists that never became superstars like Lady Ross and this post is just my small way to  remind the world about these wonderful ladies that should never be forgotten.

Looking forward to sharing some of my favorite songs this month by some more of Motown’s great and often overlooked female artists so stay tuned.

Musically Yours.
