The Supremes - Love Is Here And Now You're Gone

So many "lost love" songs in the Supremes/H-D-H canon: Reflections, this one, Stop in the Name of Love, Where Did Our Love Go, etc. Are torch songs an endangered species in pop music these days?

The bass sound gets intriguing around the 0:36 mark, like there's chorus on it. I'm pretty sure this is because there's a Fender bass and an upright bass playing in more-or-less unison throughout.

Perhaps it was the harpsichord bit at 0:42 that earned Lamont Dozier the hard-earned sobriquet, "Black Bach"?

P.S. This is soooo much better than modern pop music!!!
