What happened to the ashford & simpson thread ?

There was an interesting thread here about A&S leaving the label because Motown did not want them to record an album.

I can't find the thread. Was it moved or deleted? Or do I just need a stronger eyeglass prescription?

Benjamin - Martha and the Vandellas


When Martha was in very fine voice, great song

Are there Vandellas on this or was it too late in the day?

Can’t recall if it was a single but if it was, it didn’t see much chart action

Say hello to Russell Thompkins Jr of the New Stylistics

SDF Family,

Let's keep this thread going. Since Ralph invited me to the Forum a few years ago, I have received invaluable feedback from all of you regarding several different topics. Your questions, comments, and excellent musical knowledge motivates me and TNS to perform at the highest level we can and it has also helped us to become better, more informed human beings. We look forward to the continued dialouge.

We love you!

O'Jay cover songs Tempts would have killed

Hi all
Today I was reading a write-up on one of the O'Jays songs. Eddie Levert had mentioned that he had grown weary of the message songs by that point.

The O'Jays did have some really great message songs along with some great ballads and love songs.

So I'd like to ask you all: what O'Jays' songs would you have liked to have seen the Tempts cover? And does anyone know if the Tempts covered any O'Jays song live in concert?

Here is my list:

1. Back Stabbers - Dennis principle lead
2. Put Your Hands Together - Dennis principle lead
3. For the Love of Money - Richard Principle lead
4. Darlin' Darlin' Baby - Richard principle lead
5. Forever Mine - Richard principle lead
Today 10:34 AM

Michael Jackson - Man In The Mirror 30th Annual Grammy 1988!

I was supposed to be there that night. I am still kicking myself for not going!
