"LIKE A BOOK WITH A MISSING PAGE - I NEVER KNEW IT UNTIL YOU READ IT"

One of the best cuts from High Energy (1976) and I believe was actually the B-Side to two singles.  I consider "You're What's Missing In My Life" good enough to have been on 'Side A'.  But after hearing the unreleased alternate take with just Scherrie Payne singing lead (instead of Mary Wilson and she alternating leads) from Volume 2 of the 70's Supremes boxed sets, I'd much rather THAT version to have been the one used on the High Energy LP, and the should-have-been-a-single version, too.

THIS is the IMO MUCH better version of "You're What's Missing....." - too bad it stayed hidden in the Motown vaults for over 30 years!
