Temptations TV Movie

Anyone know why this has not made it to blu ray yet? I haven't seen it in a long time and if I watch it again, I'd like to see it in 1080P with loss less sound.

Motown CDs with the original Motown design

Hi guys, I'm putting together a CD display, and I was looking for some of the nicest looking CDs to put in it (the actual CDs, not the covers). However, I couldn't find any CDs with the classic Motown design (1963) on them, that is, the one with the blue bottom half and the Detroit map at the top with the multicoloured Motown logo over it. Are there any?

I have some with the Tamla Motown design on them, but none with Tamla, Gordy, Soul, etc. Some BBR and SoulMusic CDs (like the recent Thelma Houston one) have done great jobs recreating the original design of the album, albeit with the BBR/SoulMusic logo on them instead, like so:

but still no CDs with the original Motown design, my most favouritest of all label designs... :rolleyes:

This Song Made Me Remember...........

As we all know, music has a unique way of making us remember moments in our lives good or bad. Just hearing the record takes you back to places and times in the past. What song(s) sparked a specific memory for you?

This one always makes me remember sitting on our front porch that summer (1964) as a little kid and the music from my Mom's radio coming out through the window and sound just made me try to sing along to it:

That "Feel Good Factor" songs

There are some Motown songs that give me that "Feel Good Factor". Whilst there are many Motown masterpieces and big hits, these songs have just that little something.

Off the top of my head, these have that certain something for me:

My Baby Loves Me - Martha & The Vandellas
Love Is In Our Hearts - The Supremes
Two Can Have A Party - Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

Do you have a similar view on some Motown songs? If you do, what songs are they?
