Sound Engineering Question: "The Miracles Oh Be My Love"

Hopefully, Bradburger will see this as he always seems to pick right up on what I'm going on about. From the Away We A Go-Go album, this has always been one of my favorites. There is something ethereal, otherworldly and sinuously, seriously slinky about "Oh Be My Love." The tempo is at such a relaxed, slow-as-molasses pace, this had to have been an ultimate make out tune. [[And that bass line though- there is some serious finger work going on with this one.)

One thing in particular about this song; I always felt the drums sounded as if they were hitting the beat just a millisecond off, a very casual playing technique very different than Motown's usual right-on-the-beat style. So recently, I was listening to this when it hit me- was this thing recorded at one speed and then slowed down a tone or two? There is something in the drum sound that made me wonder if that's what is going on here. I'd love to hear others' opinions on this.

So sad to post this news. I was lucky enough to see two concerts during the Labelle reunion as well as one of her solo gigs at Joe's Pub in NYC.

Just a few days ago, someone posted a clip from a recent Patti concert where she and Sarah sang ISN'T IT A SHAME.

R.I.P. Sarah.

Can't you believe all of the [[original) Velevettes are still with us?

The original lineup of the Velevettes are still with us, and I am shocked as I type this :eek:

How'd they survive tragic moments, the Motown system, and more?

Best Opening Line of a Motown Song That's NOT the Song's Title:

Any particularly strong lines stand out that set up the record, but are not the song's title?
The line gets used and then the song moves on ...
For instance I'm thinking:

People say I'm the life of the party, 'cause I tell a joke or two ....



It's just a great lead in that rolls off Smokey's tongue ....

When do you think rhythm and blues/soul went downhill?

I'm going with the 1980s, I felt that was the beginning of the end of good soul music.

What about you guys?
