Maxine Powell. On Tammii Terrell

Was doing a little online research on my girl Tammi and found an article on Maxine Powell. In the article she stated that Tammi lived in a "fantasy" world. I take that to mean that maybe Mrs Powell thought maybe that Tammi's goals & dreams were fantasy's? She didn't elaborate...I don't know how to cut & paste the article here

Don't R&B chart placements mean anything?

So, lately, I've been playing my Motown Complete Singles sets and reading the essays of each song. I was reminded of something that's always bothered me; there are many Motown records that, while they didn't score high on the Pop charts, they did exceptionally well on the R&B Charts. In some cases hitting #1. Yet it seems none of that matters.

O.K. I understand it- the Pay Day is to be found in Pop sales, so of course, you want to nail it there. But are R&B sales really so negligible that nobody ever celebrates a Number 1 R&B hit? Many Motown artists who didn't rack up huge Pop sales did very well on the R&B side but those accomplishments seem to mean nothing if the Rock press doesn't acknowledge that success.

It's like the scene in "The Five Heartbeats": " are we always crossing over to them why don't they cross over to us sometimes!"
