Shorty Long...

was a singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer for Motown's Soul Records division. His first release, Devil  with the Blue Dress  (1964), was the first recording issued on Motown's Soul label and is my first song to kick off this weeks music set. Shorty's biggest hit was Here Comes The Judge in 1968. Big in talent and inspiration, it was unfortunate that Shorty drowned in a boating accident in 1969. So, let's get down with Shorty Long.
