Kim Weston - He's Alright

I'm listening to the Motortown Revue Vol. 2 tonight. I'm enjoying He's Alright by Kim Weston and wonder if there was ever a studio version of the song.

I noticed that the song has a Jobete copyright. I also looked at her 2-CD anthology and don't see the song there.

I just thought it curious that such a great song wasn't recorded in the studio, but was performed on the tour.

(come Ďround here) iím 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 canít 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 ď(come Ďround here) iím the one you needĒ 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, iíve 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? iíd love to know! thanks

R.I.P Miss Ray

I'm very surprised nobody on the Forum paid hommage to Miss Ray who passed away on November 11th 2016 ... Her book was a real pleasure to read and full of information on the beginnings of Motown.

Harvey Records recording artists: The Five Quails aka The Quails

I was wondering about the members of the Subject group which appeared on the Harvey Label before many of the artists under contract there went onto the Motown roster.

I believe that the group which only had 3 releases [I have all three] were Woody Woodall, Art Kirkpatrick, Billy Strawbridge, James Williams, and Billy Fulgrum. The group as a group did not go to Motown as other artists, Jr. Walker and the All Stars and Harvey and Ann [Ann having ended up with the Marvelettes].

Their first release on Harvey was Been a Long Time which does not match up to the Elgins release, but it's not a bad selection.

Does anyone recognize any of the names of the members that may have ended up on Motown? I am surprised this group gets little, if any, attention on the forum.
