By this time Motown was trying to turn Reeves into a Diana Ross clone, with sometimes disastrous results (case in point: "The Hurt Is Over"). Even so, there is the curiousity item that arouses some interest, like the bluesy stroll ballad "Love, Guess Who" and the anti-Vietnam War soap opera "I Should Be Proud." Unfortunately, their inclusion in Live Wire! The Singles 1962-1972 renders its value redundant.
