Funk Brothers with James Jamerson: Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart (Instrumental)

The up-tempo Supremes tune “Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart” was a departure from the group’s more typical lighter sound. And while this one didn’t make #1 as many of the Funk Brothers-backed tunes, it did make the top 10 for a week in 1966.

And now, thanks to the power of the interwebs, here’s the full, pre-edit track for tune, anchored by James Jamerson and the rest of the Funk Brothers. You can hear the pre-song chatter, including Diana Ross, as well as the full outro.
