    The Beatles' 1962-66 recordings have aged well, anything above that with some exceptions (Hey Jude, Come Together, Something and Let It Be, etc.) hasn't, especially the experimental work.

    But...

    I always look at Teena as a Motown artist, no matter what label she was on. As Smokey would say, "once a Motowner always a Motowner".

    It might've been since I think Tammi recorded her vocal in late '66. Marvin recorded his in early '67. It might've been decided by Berry that Marvin could "help her" and N&A/Tammi agreed but judging...

    Jesus... I'd kick her out too. LOL why do all of that craziness in a duet performance? :D

    Aretha Franklin isn't on this duets album either and she's been talking about trying to sing with Smokey since forever. LOL ;) I know Ree ain't Motown but she IS from Detroit and has known Smoke as...

    BG had no interest in them after the hits dried up, I don't think. His attention was only limited to the ones who kept making money from Motown and for M&V's, that stopped around 1967.

    I think it's because Delphine wasn't a member during the Motown period. Plus the Vandellas ceased to exist from 1972 until 1979, I think. If I have to take a guess, they weren't credited at all? I...

    I thought I read somewhere that Gloria was on "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" (the song)?

    Thanks. I'll view this later and I hope the rest of the "Soulful Detroiters" and "out of town Soulful Detroiters" (like myself :) ) view it. Definitely more interesting than... nah not gonna say it!...

    Awesome is an understatement. Teena Marie, man what can one say that hasn't already been said about the legendary Lady T? Definitely an underrated genius in Motown!!! Miss her terribly... the R&B...

    No. But I'm quite interested in hearing if there is an audio track of this. Brenda Holloway, Barbara Randolph and Carla Thomas also took Tammi's place during concert performances with Marvin.

    I think it went like this in the timeline:

    Martha Reeves has always claimed she was trying to get a solo deal with Motown. Apparently she was "done" with the Vels (the former Del-Phis) so to speak...

    Pedro had no business managing them to begin with. You think someone who had been in a group for over 15 years would've learned how to find better management. You don't mix business with pleasure.

    If management was right, this album would've been a decent success (same with Supremes '75).

    Interesting interview. It's amazing who's been around the block in the music business... especially in Detroit. Detroit was like a mini factory of labels at the time before Motown absorbed them all....

    Lol why are people expecting fellow Motown acts on Smokey's album? Is that a prerequisite? Stevie nor Diana featured Motown acts on their last albums either. ;)

    Anyway, who else but Diana?
