    It seems Martha decided not to do anything with "Vandellas" in it anymore. I'm okay with that... I agree that she's in fine vocal form here.

    I'm reading elsewhere that she's only pregnant with ONE child so it's confusing. Some also claimed the woman is 25 when she's actually 39...

    I took that too. Like they were happy to be there but once money got in, they decided to leave because Motown wasn't offering much to keep them. Both Diana Ross and Teena Marie mentioned how saddened...

    Quick question: wasn't some of the Funk Brothers on the recording of "Midnight Train to Georgia"?

    To quote from Lulu, I used to think it was sad that all that was left of the Jacksons were reality shows but I guess unlike the Gordys and Rosses, they have nothing to really offer to anyone besides...

    I'm often confused about Marvin's timeline. Was he just in the Anna label then? Other bios stated Harvey Records, another was Tri-Phi (and he allegedly performed the drum work on the Spinners'...

    I always felt Gladys Knight and the Pips were a true MOTOWN act... even when they went to Buddah, it didn't feel different at all to me. This wasn't like the Isley Brothers, who weren't established...

    Yep Michael did that. If he didn't have his way, he wasn't going. It could very well be a PR move on Mariah's part but no one's arguing the fact that she is indeed one of the most successful singers...

    I don't deny that Mariah's been successful. I admired her early work. She's the only solo artist that I know that had their first five singles reach #1 (Whitney waited two singles before she finally...

    Aretha performed the song on "The Today Show" and sounded just as good if not better than the Letterman performance. I hope this album brings her some healthy sales. She hasn't had a hit album in 16...

    Most successful? I'm not knocking Mariah but uh, shouldn't that title go to Barbra or Aretha?

    In a way it was definitely his "f you" moment to Motown... "you say I couldn't write a hit without y'all... well... now what?"

    Kinda off topic but wasn't Diana's grandfather a Baptist minister?

    You know how many people still use new jack swing as a musical reference these days? No one. But people still love disco lol

    The Andantes were on the original recording of Still Water... only reason why I think so is because of their harmonies. Of course when they started singing, you start to wonder lol

    I wonder if he was told to say it or did he actually believe it and why didn't Berry correct him? SMH lol

    Right. Plus "Billie Jean" was JUST released as the next single. Sure it was popular but I think it was only after Motown 25 that it hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. And yeah for the first half of...
