Berry Gordy Honored at the 1975 American Music Awards!

This is what I call a personal time capsule moment. I remember watching this when it was originally broadcast on Feb 18, 1975 on our big old color console television! LOL! I thought Berry Gordy Jr. was the greatest at the time. Watch this and remember beginning at 12:25 into this video the tribute starts:

Reflections (Pre-Golden World release information)

In Al Kent's book, Custodian of the Hummingbird, he told of a pre-Golden World release by the Reflections. He states, ". . . The Reflections got their start at Kayco Records in Detroit with Barry Kay, the president of the newly formed record label. Their first recording was a song called 'Helpless' and on the flip side was 'You Say Goodbye.' Their first release did well in a number of locales, including Chicago, Cleveland, and Baltimore where it deservingly got tremendous airplay and sent the group out on the road. . . ."

This is the first time I ever heard of this pre-GW release. Keith Rylatt's Groovesville USA does not mention the Kayco label in it's list of Detroit labels.

Has anyone heard this record? If someone has it in their collection, I would appreciate seeing a scan of the label.

Thank you.

The Marvelttes "Destination: Anywhere"

You only get to hear a scant few seconds of it (I'm sure that has to do with liscensing rights) but I've been talking with a guy who was a DJ and he sent me a link to one of his airchecks. The guy PLAYED THE MARVELTTES' "DESTINATION: ANYWHERE" on his show back in the day! So great to hear that this song was getting airplay on the radio back then. P.S. I just heard the Four Tops' "I'm In A Different World" too. The guy has excellent taste!
