Kent's second collection of this group s material from the Motown vaults follows 2011's Dance With The Contours (CDTOP 350) Just A Little Misunderstanding features material that the group cut between early 1965 and their demise in early 1968, along with all the known solo material cut by their final lead singer, Dennis Edwards, before he was enlisted by the Temptations as a replacement for David Ruffin in 1968. (Other featured singers include Joe Stubbs, Jerry Green and the group's original lead, Billy Gordon). 14 of the 26 featured tracks have never been heard before in this form 12 of the 14 have never been heard in ANY form prior to this release. All these tracks feature the great and probably definitive Motown sound of the mid-60s. We are sure many will find a home on the Northern Soul scene, which has supported the group's dance tracks since its earliest days. The booklet features copious annotation by renowned Motown authority Keith Hughes and many rare and previously unseen photos of the mid 60s incarnations of the Contours.

There are also several tracks from Dennis Edwards who led The Contours for a period before leaving in high dudgeon (explained in the functional liner notes) and moving onto The Temptations.Read more ›
This period was at the time an amazing current 'soul scene' and the UK's underground soul club DJ's were trying to find the best sounds for the rapidly discerning dancers. At the time 'First I Look At The Purse' was amongst the top ten plays. This established the group's sound for many collectors at the time, so to get a collection of rare and unheard songs and arrangements from this period is a sheer delight for those of us who clamoured for such music at the time.(and since) That it has taken so long for it to surface is to Motown/UM's disgrace whilst this (ACE)/KENT release is to their credit, and is recognition that not only will 'older' collectors relish this but that young soul fans will discover what we got hooked on back then.
Whilst some reviewers may see the group's lowly label reputation and success as a limiting factor in this set others will glory at the sheer quality of most of the performances. The group had faded as their novelty style between 1963 and 1965 had no longevity and Berry Gordy understandably didn't see they had any future. This selection with a substantial number of unreleased tracks shows that the writers, producers and the group members didn't think so and it was also the birth of the magnificent Dennis Edwards career which would reach it's full potential with the Temptations. His emerging vocal prowess is evident throughout this set. The group and Dennis were able to develop some mature and highly competent tracks and this set very much enhances their historical reputation.
