Nearly 30 years after his death Shorty Long has his first ever CD released. Most of the tracks are taken from his two albums issued on Motown in the late sixties. Apart from the well known tracks his version of "Your Love's Amazing" and "Don't Mess With My Weekend" are outstanding.  The rare UK single "Out To Get You" is also included. Once again, like other artist, his biggest hit single "Here Comes The Judge" did not do justice to his singing and writing talent at Motown. Issued on Spectrum is on Tamla Motown 544 299-2.
