95 Songs of Summer, #64 - "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (1970)

It's a testament to the greatness of this song that there were two equally great, but stylistically diverse, versions to assault the charts.  This is the first one I heard - Diana Ross turns the tight Marvin & Tammi version into a 6-minute epic.  This kind of thing doesn't always work, but it does here.

"Ain't No Mountain High Enough," Diana Ross & the Supremes, from the summer of 1970.

Good one, Jeff. Earlier this month, I ran into the Diva Diana at the store near work.
