His first solo recording, B-side of Blues Get Off My Shoulder. Rightfully questions Berry Gordy's credit on the Marv Johnson hit version, while any cover since kept crediting Gordy & co.
Marv Johnson [n°2 R&B and crediting Berry Gordy Jr.; too big a hit for young Tamla to handle; UA handled the national distribution]
Lana Sisters [with Dusty Springfield as You've Got What It Takes]
Dave Clark Five [top 10 US]
Spooky & Sue [as You've Got What It Takes]
Showaddywaddy [n°2 UK]
Not to be confused with Baby, You've Got What It Takes, a big hit in '60 for Brook Benton & Dinah Washington (see there).
