Money (That’s What I Want) – 1960
Born 5th February 1941, Westpoint, MS
Money was the first record performed by Barrett Strong – it is consequently very rare.
First released on Anna Records in the USA, then later re-released on Tamla Motown and gave Berry Gordy a much needed cash injection – Money!
Barret collaborated on many songs for Motown artists including I Heard It Through The Grapvine for Glady’s Knight, made into a monster hit by Marvin Gaye. Others included War for Edwin Starr and Papa Was A Rolling Stone for The Temptations.
