Whispers Unsung episode -- excellent

I learned a lot about the group, especially in the pre-SOLAR records days. I started buying their stuff when they were on SOLAR. Very interesting episode of one of my favorite groups. They packed a lot of info into 36 minutes.

I like the loyalty of the group members. If guys had to leave the group for awhile, they still paid them.

Class act. Saw them a couple of years ago live ... damn! Brought the house down.

Collection of 16 Big Hits - Were These Ever Issued on CD?

I am not sure if this has been asked on past threads (I am new to the site) but were the various volumes of the Motown "A COLLECTION OF 16 BIG HITS" series (including the first volume known as "A PACKAGE OF....") from the 1960s (primarily) ever issued on CD? It would be nice to have a box set of these with the mono/stereo versions of the earlier volumes. I think some volumes have different takes of the same song on mono vs. stereo.

Fifth Dimension's 1975 Earthbound Album finally set for CD re-issue!

The Fifth Dimension sang their way to success with great hits including their first big hit with Jimmy Webb's Up Up And Away. In 1975, the original lineup teamed once again with Webb to record 1975's Earthbound for ABC Records. That vinyl album has finally cleared all legal hurdles and Real Gone Music will issue it on CD come April 29. It was also the final album with the original group. Real Gone will include two bonus tracks including the original version of Love Hangover. Webb produced and arranged the record and wrote half of its songs. The CD is remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision, with liner notes by Joe Marchese of The Second Disc.

Tracee Ellis Ross - The High Note

Tracee Ellis Ross has a new movie coming out on May 8th. They have released the Official Trailer. It's about the troubles of singers over the age of 40. Echoes the lives of many our true divas. Looks like it could be pretty good.

Eddie & brian holland on the view tomorrow wed feb 26th

The Holland Brothers are scheduled to be on THE VIEW tomorrow, Feb 26th. They are listed as authors and I presume that they will be discussing the book that was released last fall.

Brian Holland, Edward Holland, and Lamont Dozier, known as Holland-Dozier-Holland or H-D-H, were the greatest songwriting team in American pop music history. Seventy of the songs they wrote reached the Billboard Top 40, with 15 of these reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart. No other songwriting team or individual has come close to equaling, let alone surpassing, this record. They’ve been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. As tunesmiths for the legendary Motown Record Corporation, and for their own corporations, Invictus Records and Hot Wax Records, they wrote and produced hits for Diana Ross and the Supremes, including “Baby Love,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “Where Did Our Love Go,” “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” “You Can’t Hurry Love,” “I Hear a Symphony,” “Come See About Me,” “Back in My Arms Again” and “Reflections.” Now the legendary composers are ready to reveal the inspirations and stories behind their chart-topping hits, providing millions of fans with the first complete history of their songwriting process, and detail the real-life experiences that led them to write each of their most famous tunes. They will also reveal their creative and intimate relationships with Motown’s biggest stars.

I have my DVR set.
