Great front-page piece in NYT today on Barrett Strong getting screwed out of massive royalties for co-writing his hit "Money." Later recorded by, uh, The Beatles, Stones, more. As usual thelikely culprit: Berry Gordy. If think he has no claim, keep in mind he wrote a little thing called "I Heard It Through the Grapevine."
