New (and Final) CD Coming from Dame Shirley!!!

Just saw the news on Amazon, although the details are sketchy. Dame Shirley Bassey will be releasing a CD of new material in November. It is being touted as her "final" release and will come out just a couple months shy of her 84th birthday. Talk about your lifetime achievement!!!

The CD will be released in two versions, and the expanded one will apparently have a booklet and additional material. I would think any true fan would want the expanded edition.

For me personally, this is WONDERFUL news, being a long-time Shirley fan, but also because it does indicate that the CD era (alright all you whippersnappers out there, don't make fun of me!) will be with us at least a little while longer.

For those of you who are in the know, pass along any further information the minute it becomes available about this exciting new release.

Geno Washington "Hand Clappin'/Tail Feather/Hipsters/Running Wild" 3CD Set-9/4/2020

The US soul man's four albums for Pye/Piccadilly Records, dating from 1966, 1967 and 1968, plus A and B sides, E.P. tracks and Geno's solo singles. Like Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band were an extremely popular ballroom and club act, packing out venues wherever they went. They broke up in 1969, with Geno commencing a solo career before departing for the States. Since 2005, Geno has started gigging again. Digitally remastered, slipcased and with extensive new notes.

Martha & The Vandellas:

Dance Party
Watch Out

The Four Tops:

Second Album
Reach Out

Marvin Gaye:

Moods Of
In The Groove

The Temptations:

Gettin' Ready
With A Lot O Soul

Gladys Knight & The Pips:

Everybody Needs Love
Feelin' Blusey

The Miracles:

Going To A Go-Go

Terry Johnson & TNT

Not sure how long it might be to Motown Unreleased 1970 but I'm hoping for some tracks by Terry Johnson.

I was a bit puzzled on the 1968 Unreleased set by the tracks credited to TNT which it turned out was Terry along with Theresa Botial.

My assumption is that it is Terry Johnson's long time musical partner who also appears on The Flamingos revival shows and known as Theresa Trigg (or just Trigg). They have a new venture Hot Fun Records and a YouTube channel.

Here they are performing live in a classic clip - turns out he's a mean saxophonist too.

«Martha Reeves and The Vandellas Produced by Richard Morris» - A playlist

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.
