Junior Walker & the All Stars song was one of the Motown signature acts in the 1960's. Originally "The Rhythm Rockers," they became "The All Stars", & in 1961 they were recommended to Harvey Fuqua who signed them to his label Harvey .

When Fuqua's labels were taken over by Motown's Berry Gordy, Jr. Walker & The All Stars became members of the Motown Records, recording for their Soul label in 1964. While 1965 saw the release of their signature hit "Shotgun," they remained active on the charts through to 1972, disbanding in 1979.
