Rita Ross defeated for Detroit 5th District Representative

I wonder what the result MIGHT have been if Miss Ross came to Detroit and campaign for her younger sister. This was really surprising; I expected to see her be victorious.

In the 5th House District, state Rep. Cynthia Johnson, D-Detroit, defeated her main challenger, Rita Ross of Detroit, the youngest sister of Motown great Diana Ross, 65% to 28%, in a three-candidate race, with all precincts reporting.

Berry Gordy Family Tree

I found this very interesting however the picture of Thelma is actually Raynoma. I do not know if there are other inaccuracies but I am sure fellow forum members will point them out if they exist.

Higher And Higher

This Jackie Wilson classic is the most 'non-Motown' Motown record ever and still gets regular radio play here in the UK. It is well known that a lot of Motown session players featured on the recording but is there a definitive list of who actually contributed to the session. Sorry if this has been asked before.

J5s THE LOVE YOU SAVE Was A Doubled-Sided Hit? (& why isn't 'STOP!' in the title)

After The Jackson Five's THE LOVE YOU SAVE had peaked (#1 for two weeks June 27 to July 4, 1970 ) , but while still in the Top Ten , Billboard started posting the record as a two sided hit: THE LOVE YOU SAVE /I FOUND THAT GIRL.

Curious that the song is in its fade stage that the b-side seems to get discovered ??? I don't recall ever hearing it on the radio, but apparently in some regions, on some stations .....



I remember I FOUND THAT GIRL from buying their GREATEST HITS package, makes more sense now that it was placed on there .
