We have some soulful posts comin' up so let me open the
session with this classic tune from 1970. Founded in 1954,
they were also known as the "The Motown Spinners" and
"The Detroit Spinners". Their last song in the top 100 was
back in 1983, but the band is still playing.. The song we
talk about today was written and also produced by Stevie
Wonder. It's about the sometimes complicated relationship
between woman and man. "It's a shame" is a classic BIG
TUNE which was also performed in a smooth reggae style
by the rocksteady legend Alton Ellis inna top-a-top
Studio One style...

It's a shame, by Alton Ellis 

And finally; this is the oldschool hiphop version
performed by Monie Love

I have to quote a Youtube comment for this song because it's
exactly what I think; "Gimme a thumbs up if you wish hip-hop
still sounded like this" ... two thumbs up by dizzlematic
