Old Motown soul will stand the test of time now that real music no auto tune sound at all

in my day, the civil rights era, frankly, all us white guys wanted to be black. they were beyond cool. anything smokey sang, or aretha, or the four tops, was just so cool. a special syncopation that no white guy could ever quite duplicate. they called it the Motown sound. but as duke ellington who once said about jazz, the motown music from his era, the precursor of the actual Motown sound 30 years before Motown, if it ain't got that swing, it ain't got a thing.
