Our Motown Top 60

Hey everyone, keeping with Motown's 60th Anniversary I think it would be great if we post a favorite Motown recording here until we reach 60 of our favorites. If someone post one that you were thinking of posting, pick a different one (God knows there are a lot to choose from).
I will start things off with this one:

Mary Tyler Moore Loves Gladys Knight & The Pips

Not much to get excited over- just watching an episode of the old Mary Tyler Moore Show and there was a gag about her having bought a stereo set but it wasn't working right. Mary tells Murray she can hear Gladys Knight..BUT NONE of the PIPS! I love when someone drops a Motown artist into a show's dialogue!

Quiet Elegance

A group that isn't discussed around here much.
I really enjoy their only album. Lois Reeves was in this
group. I wish they would have given Lois a lead or two.

Earth, Wind & Fire Becomes First R&B Group to Receive Kennedy Center Honors

7/18/2019 by Paul Grein

Earth, Wind & Fire made a little history Thursday (July 18), becoming the first R&B group to receive the Kennedy Center Honors. They'll be just the fourth music group overall to receive this acknowledgement, following three rock groups: The Who (2008), Led Zeppelin (2012) and Eagles (2016).

The Kennedy Center Honors tend to go to individuals. As a result, they have generally chosen to honor lead singers and/or principal songwriters from groups, rather than the groups themselves.

Among the many alumni of famous R&B (or pop/R&B crossover) groups or duos who have been honored individually with Kennedy Center Honors are Smokey Robinson, lead singer and songwriter for The Miracles; Diana Ross, lead singer of The Supremes; Lionel Richie, who fronted Commodores; Mavis Staples of The Staple Singers; and Tina Turner of Ike & Tina Turner.
