(come Ďround here) iím the one you need question

i know 1966 was an extraordinarily busy year for holland/dozier/holland. they wrote a varietyof hits: reach out & standing in the shadows for the tops, my world is empty and you canít hurry love for the supremes ... plus hits for the isley bros, jr. walker, the elgins, just to name the tip of the iceberg.
what i want to know is how they came about to write the rocker ď(come Ďround here) iím the one you needĒ for the miracles. the song sounds tailor made for levi and the tops and it seems as if they would have been screaming to record it! i can even imagine the supremes taking a stab at it. considering how few songs h/d/h wrote for smokey and how prolific smokey was on his own, iíve always been perplexed how this collaboration came about. it is one damn fine tune and smokey and the miracles sing their hearts out ... but does anyone know the story about how these two powerhous teams got together? iíd love to know! thanks

Trivia Question RE: Neil Diamond and Bobbie Gentry

I was playing a new Neil Diamond collection today (courtesy of that recent Amazon sale) and an interesting trivia question popped into my head. I promise I will not drag it out and if no one guesses, I will reveal the answer in a day or two.

So even though neither is considered a "soul" singer, can you figure out what Neil Diamond and Bobbie Gentry have in common?

Kim Weston - He's Alright

I'm listening to the Motortown Revue Vol. 2 tonight. I'm enjoying He's Alright by Kim Weston and wonder if there was ever a studio version of the song.

I noticed that the song has a Jobete copyright. I also looked at her 2-CD anthology and don't see the song there.

I just thought it curious that such a great song wasn't recorded in the studio, but was performed on the tour.

Motown Corporate Christmas Greeting Cards

Does anyone have any corporate Motown Christmas cards in their possession? I am trying to determine exactly how many were issued over the years.

I have 2 in my possession. The first is from 1977 and it has a brick fireplace on the front with a 33-1/3 record with an M going down the chimney/fireplace and 8 flying records coming towards the fireplace. It is blue in color.

The second is a gem. It is from 1981 and it has a head on shot of the Motown Museum with gold records in the snow and santa leaving on a sled. It is simply beautiful.

Anyone have any others? Thanks.
