In 1967, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell recorded the original version of Ain't No Mountain High Enough. The song had been written in 1966 by husband and wife songwriting duo Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson. British soul singer Dusty Springfield wanted to record the song, but Ashford and Simpson were determined to use this song to move from the Scepter/Wand label to Motown Records. The Detroit-based label paired the songwriting duo with Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, and they wrote and/or produced most of the late-1960's recordings by the popular duo including You're All I Need To Get By, Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing and Your Precious Love.
In 1970, former Supremes frontwoman Diana Ross had her first solo number one hit with a cover of Ain't No Mountain High Enough. Ross had previously recorded the song in 1968 with The Supremes as a duet with The Temptations. The original recording of the song by Gaye and Terrell is considered to be one of Motown Records most important recordings.
