Good, Tommy

** This is just a short biographical summary – for the full story, check out this artist’s reviews! **

Blue-eyed soul singer Tommy Good only had one Motown single release, but he recorded a couple of dozen tracks during his short time at Hitsville, some of them exceptional.

A Detroit native, Good came to Motown in 1963; nowadays, he is best-known for the “astroturf” fake grassroots campaign Motown mounted to promote his one and only single, the label organising a “protest march” ostensibly made up of Tommy’s fans on Hitsville demanding they release his record, after which Motown “acquiesced to public demand”. It was all nonsense, but Tommy played along gamely; the record, sadly, was a flop, and there were no further releases for him at Motown, Tommy leaving the label in 1965 to concentrate on his day job at Chrysler.
