Question for Washington, DC or Baltimore forum members.

There were two great record stores that I frequented in the past and obtained some great Motown 45s; the prize one I got was Tears of Sorrow by the Primettes and several Jimmy Ruffin 45s.

The stores were Roadhouse Oldies in Silver Spring, MD and
Roadhouse Oldies in Baltimore, MD.

Does anyone know if these two businesses are still operating?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

Hello, I have created a new playlist for the Vandellas and Richard Morris on YouTube.
I suppose that Rosalind Ashford and Lois Reeves are not featured in all the songs, I hope they're singing in some of them, but I have added their names, because they were the Vandellas in 1967-69. I hope you enjoy it.

The Scientist of Soul - You Can't Help But Fall In Love

I'm pretty sure that is the groups name and the song came out in the late 60's. The lyrics start out this way:

The evening summer breeze comes and takes your breath away
And the one you love sits beside you and you know he's here to stay yeah

You can'thelp but fall in love, talking about L-O-V-E love

I'm also pretty sure that this was a local release in Chicago. Anyone know anything about the group?

John Manship Acetate Tapes

Apologies if this has been discussed here before, but about 25 years ago I acquired some tapes of motown acetates from John Manship; unfortunately the tapes are long gone, but I do recall these including "Purple Snowflakes" by Marvin Gaye, (a few takes), the Four Tops "Break-in' Through" Workshop Jazz album and many others.... So my question is whether anyone else happened upon these tapes at the time (4+ hours in total), and what (if any of these tracks) haven't been included in various motown releases. (Of course the Four Tops tracks came out on lost & found).

Furthermore, there was also a private pressing of a whole album of Temptations outtakes, "Angel Doll"? Again this appeared on the Emperors boxset, but any info on this greatly appreciated. (As I sold this when I moved away from vinyl)....
