Lionel Richie Demo - Endless Love

Much as I do love Diana Ross, as far as "Endless Love" is concerned I much prefer to listen to Lionel Richie's demo version than any other.

I love the rawness of it and the tone of Lionel's voice throughout. The demo was released on a CD re-issue of his first Motown solo album as a bonus track.

Just gorgeous to my ears!

Were the Spinners invited to Motown 25?

Gladys said that they declined because they felt that the show should be honoring the artists that built the company and not just the company itself.

Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin were also not invited. Eddie asked and was told that he could buy a ticket sit in the audience. James Jamerson was not invited and had to buy a ticket. Marvin Gaye called Kat of the Marvelettes and asked her why weren't they there. She told him that they were not invited and he was pissed!

Music Modernization Act Signed Into Law

The law has many components, but for classic music fans one component of the bill, the Classics Act, will finally make sure that artists with pre-1972 records will receive master recording performance royalties.

"The Music Modernization Act is now the law of the land, and thousands of songwriters and artists are better for it," RIAA president Mitch Glazier said. "The result is a music market better founded on fair competition and fair pay. The enactment of this law demonstrates what music creators and digital services can do when we work together collaboratively to advance a mutually beneficial agenda. It's a great day for music. We hope fans across the country will join with us in celebration and PLAY IT LOUD."

Thelma Houston 4 album package

I just received my copy of this and thought it was a great concept. Are there any similar products already out there that I might have missed or are any others in the works?

For example, I could see that same idea working nicely for Tata Vega, since I am pretty sure she released four Motown albums. Or how about High Inergy, Edwin Starr, Marvin and Tammi, Undisputed Truth, maybe some others.........
