Odd song, great performance

One of the albums I’m reviewing in the Sunday Times this weekend is The Supremes’ 1965 show at The Copa. Motown in a chic Manhattan night spot. It was weird to find them reviving the Jolson-esque “Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody”. Then again, Aretha Franklin sang it too. And how. Her pre-Atlantic phase definitely had its high points.
