Special Preview of the Tammi Terrell Complete Solo Collection "Come On and See Me" with compilation producer Harry Weinger LIVE...on the heels of the Tammi Terrell episode of "Unsung" on TVone!

Folks....hello! Tonight...I am more than excited to have the privilege of airing some of the remarkable and rare tracks from the new Tammi Terrell Collection of Hip-O Select. And if that's not enough, I am equally excited and pleased to have on "Nightflight...live...2 time Grammy Award winner and Vice President of A&R for Universal Music Enterprises...Harry Weinger. Harry is the producer of this Tammi compilation and it's clearly been a labor of love for him. So rather than go on and on...let me just say...
join me tonight for a chat with Harry Weinger about the new Tammi Terrell collection and a show filled with Tammi tracks (rare and loved)...on "Nightflight" ...on WOMR 92.1 FM Provincetown and streaming live worldwide in digital stereo at www.womr.org (http://www.womr.org)
And tonight....please...no calls.
Thanks!
John

Last night's "Unsung" episode on Tammi Terrell was very well done. The approach was no-holds-barred but respectful. I learned a lot and got a better understanding of why some of the myths of Tammi's life persist. So much triumph and so much tragedy in such a short life. She had the potential to be an enduring superstar, but sadly that was not to be. But she did leave us a legacy of music that (has and) will endure.
I'm very happy that we well be celebrating that legacy tonight in anticipation (it's killing me! LOL) of the release of this fitting and deserved tribute to Tammi Terrell. Looking forward to the show, John, and especially to your interview with Harry Weinger. Thanks to Harry and everyone else who made this important release happen.

What a coup!!!

Can you sneak in a question about the Scherrie Payne years while discussing Tammi?

Hope you are well.

Excellent John. HERO HERO...............I'm very impressed.

I dont think I'm going to be home early enough to hear this. Is any of it archived yet or can we find it later??

Well done; I can see some jealous people over this, can't you!

Hi John, is the time difference with the UK 5 hrs behind?

I'm most appreciative to Harry spending time with us chatting about the Tammi collection. It means so very much to be a small part of this great thing that Harry and Universal are doing to give Tammi the recognition and honor that she deserves.
Tammi has meant so much to me, as a Tammi AND a Motown fan, the way I know she has meant a lot to you all. I hope you will listen in tonight to hear what Harry has chosen to share with us, and to hear him talk about this very special collection.

The show is 5 hours difference from the U.K.....9PM-12M ET is 2AM-5AM U.K. TIME (I think).

Tonight, I think we're going to talk mostly about Tammi and the collection...but maybe Harry will come back and talk about some of the other very special UME and Hip-O Motown collections that have been and are going to be released. ANd at that time maybe he'll do a question and answer session. I'll beg him. There is no way at this time to archive the show (through WOMR), sadly.

Thanks, guys for your interest....(and thanks Harry)!
See ya later I hope!

Also, may I add that this is a real treat for me. While I have always admired Tammi's talents, I didn't know much about her beyond the Marvin duets; so, this is a real treat for me to get to know her better. I am already in love with the first song you are playing. Thank you, Johnny; Thank you, Mr. Weinger!

Nice dodge, Mr. Weinger; however, Miss Lish strongly suspects that the answer to the question about getting sick of Motown, could very well be a resounding, "Yes!" LOL!

Midnight Johnny. I've got a question for HW. Could you ask him if there are any plans to release the other live recordings from the Motown Mondays? Either by traditional cd or thru i-tunes. A cool box set would be intersting or a "Live from Detroit" collection would be interesting and include other one-off live performance from lesser known artists. And if there are plans to utilize i-tunes more to do more releases. (ie. Workshop Jazz)

Discovering Tammi this evening, while I have always heard similarities in her's and Miss Ross's voices, i.e., sexy cooing quality and similar textures on certain notes; what is indisputable is that both she and Miss Ross always brought their A game to whatever endeavor they took on. I am very impressed.

Sounds just like the voices on the released studio version- likely The Spinners.

Forgot to say that the reason we got energized and produced the set this year: Tammi would have been 65 this past April and it is the 40th anniversary of her passing. Much love to her family, and thanks JP. (P.S. Come on, that was Ivy Jo peeking in at the end of the unreleased song.)

John Perrone; Thank you so much for having HW on the show. I believe that Harry may be the best comentator ever that has graced your program, I could be a little prejudiced. Not only was he articulate he broke every track down so that you could understand the mechanics of how the tracks were remastered. Harry kudos and much love!

Ross...it seems that the "Motown Mondays" plan is something up the road...such an exciting idea. But if this Tammi collection can be released...I'm very optimistic that ANYTHING can happen!

Do we know who's singing background on Tammi's live set?

Ross...when I asked Harry...he said he thought Spinners or Originals...or a combination of a number of members from both groups. I was amazed that the sound for Tammi's live show, particularly with "I Can't Believe you Love Me" and "Come On and See Me" was so much like the studio track...including the male background vocals. I didn't get a chance to play "Come On and See Me"...the live version is longer than the studio track...and just breathetaking. In a month...when Harry returns to "Nightflight"...on the day of the Tammi release...I'll get to play that and more.

Hi Johnny!

I asked the Spinners boys - Bobbie, I think - about that a few years ago and he answered that they never did any background for Tammi.
