A Cellarful Of Motown Vol 5

FINALLY ten years on from the last volume and coming in the first two weeks of September the much awaited latest volume of Cellarful Of Motown. I make no excuses for the fact that unusually it has tracks that have been released previously. Most of these have appeared in downloads or on other compilations but luckily in most of those cases I am bringing you new mixes. This is being released by Caroline Records part of the Universal Group and all I can ask (for it is looking unlikely) that if you want to see more releases like this that you support it and if possible drop the record company a line telling them how much you appreciate it - I should be able to supply a track list later this morning.Attachment 18038

Player Man – The D.E.E.P.

I just came across this track by a group called The D.E.E.P. which samples Smokey Robinson's "Virgin Man" and does a pretty good job with it in my opinion :cool:



Can you love...... a player man? :p

(come ‘round here) i’m the one you need question

i know 1966 was an extraordinarily busy year for holland/dozier/holland. they wrote a varietyof hits: reach out & standing in the shadows for the tops, my world is empty and you can’t hurry love for the supremes ... plus hits for the isley bros, jr. walker, the elgins, just to name the tip of the iceberg.
what i want to know is how they came about to write the rocker “(come ‘round here) i’m the one you need” for the miracles. the song sounds tailor made for levi and the tops and it seems as if they would have been screaming to record it! i can even imagine the supremes taking a stab at it. considering how few songs h/d/h wrote for smokey and how prolific smokey was on his own, i’ve always been perplexed how this collaboration came about. it is one damn fine tune and smokey and the miracles sing their hearts out ... but does anyone know the story about how these two powerhous teams got together? i’d love to know! thanks

Teddy Pendergrass - If-You-Dont-Know-Me documentary 2019

https://www.sho.com/titles/3464418/t...-dont-know-me\

Anyone saw this? Saw it last night. Very interesting. In it was said that the car accident could have happened because the brakes had been cut. That had happened in several of the other cars that Teddy had owned.
Also quite mysterous was the killing of his first female manager who took a large percentage of his earnings.
One of the people interviewed is Shep Gordon who became Teddy's manager and who later managed Luther Vandross about who he talks in his own documentary
Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.
