Great for pre/post-game or half-time at Basketball games, or even for concerts, this classic Motown tune is known by all.

The highly-flexible "BcP-Flex" scoring* imitates the classic rock band sound by using only 4 "instruments/voices" - lead, rhythm, bass, and drums:

Lead: Flute, Clarinets, Alto Sax, Trumpets

Rhythm: Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Horn, Trombone, TC Baritone

Bass: Electric Bass, Tuba

Drums: No drum set part is written as it is often easier to get the drummer to "pick-up" the tune by listening to the chart.

Parts are formatted to fit in a flip-folder, but print on letter-sized paper if you prefer to use 3-ring binders.

Easy keys with multiple courtesy accidentals and well-marked rehearsal numbers reduce the amount of time needed in rehearsal and improve performance.
