Read the book "Once in a Great City". Fascinating story about the modern history of Detroit and Motown Records.
A few years ago? 52 years to be exact.
I remember this version. Didn’t know it was a cover of an older song til just now 😳
I was in Detroit for work one time. At a stop light, the passenger in the car next to me open his door and dumps a bag of McDonalds onto the street. I looked at him, he looked at me, and seemed bothered lol.
At one time Detroit had one of the largest per capita incomes of any city in the US. That was due to the auto industry and related manufacturing jobs. Those jobs will likely not ever return. There is no reason for Detroit to become gentrified and turned into a series of nice neighborhoods with remodeled older homes, especially since the current population has destroyed much of those neighborhoods.
