London Lamont Dozier show now cancelled!

I've just had an email saying that the London Union Chapel show on February 15th by Lamont Dozier has now been cancelled, saying I will be refunded. Really, really sad news. Anyone have any news about what's going on?

Martha and Scherrie question

Motown released solo singles on them in UK right? Suppose they had been hits? Did Motown have any solo plans for them in US? Could Martha have stayed at Motown as a solo or were her bags packed for MCA already? Did Motown want to keep her?

Rare Earth Releases on Culture Factory/LMLR

Glad to see that more Rare Earth albums are being released on CD. Band Together, Back To Earth and Midnight Lady are scheduled between end of November and end of January. I really enjoy these mini-lp styled CDs with the original label design and faux vinyl grooves. I purchased all the previously released early 70s albums. Hope Grand Slam and RareEarth get released as well.

Is “Don’t leave me this Way” and “Love Hangover” a Blurred Line?

With all this talk of Blurred Lines either straight up copying Got to give it up, or Just being inspired by the song, it got me to thinking. Does Don’t leave me this way copy Love Hangover or was it just inspired by it? I know that for many disco Classics, if a song was hugely successful there would usually be another song released afterwords that would have the same exact groove. Sometimes by the same artist. Candi Staton comes to mind. So what’s the story with Don’t leave me this way and Love Hangover?

What Love Has Joined Together (which version y'all rockin' with?)

To my knowledge, four Motown acts covered the legendary Miracles composition, What Love Has Joined Together, but I wonder which version tickles your fancy the most:

Mary Wells (1963)
The Temptations (1965)
The Miracles (1971)
Syreeta Wright (1972)

Let the choosing games begin!!!
