Oh Martha!

Two days of rehearsals and her segment was completely cut from Motown 60. And when the Motown stars were asked to stand, no recognition at all?

To be a fly on the wall at her house this evening.....

Motown 60 Sunday Night

Of course the Gordy family would be behind it. This is their legacy, but they'll back anything honoring Motown whether its good or not. This special is geared toward the average viewer, not the dedicated Motown fan. I'm not expecting a Motown 25 or Motown 40.

It's odd. There has been no word or mention of the Motown documentary yet. When this special taped back in February word was the Motown documentary was going to air on Showtime in April, yet here we are entering the last full week of April and not a word has been spoken. In fact, this whole Motown 60 celebration so far has been a huge let down. The Grammy Awards Motown tribute was a joke. I doubt I'll be enthralled with this Motown 60 Grammys special. I'm hoping the documentary will be good (whenever that airs), but that'll have a Gordy slant to it. After that, what else is there since clearly Universal doesn't give a damn nor clear to do anything in terms of music? Their "Motown Did It First" campaign is nothing but Instagram stories, but where's the music?

I said it before and I'll say it again...Motown 60, like Motown 50, is going to be a huge wet fart.

Tears At The End Of A Love Afair

Listening to Tammi's solo version of this great song it sounds to my ears that it was an unfinished duet with the second verse, that Marvin sings on the Unreleased 1968 album, being just instrumental.

Does anyone have any information about this song please and whether it was recorded by Tammi with intentional "gaps" for Marvin to sing "into"?

Thanks.

Good Ratings for Motown 60

Overnight ratings for last night are in and Motown 60 won it's time slot beating out American Idol. Usually this means more such shows will be planned.
