Martha and Scherrie question

Motown released solo singles on them in UK right? Suppose they had been hits? Did Motown have any solo plans for them in US? Could Martha have stayed at Motown as a solo or were her bags packed for MCA already? Did Motown want to keep her?

London Lamont Dozier show now cancelled!

I've just had an email saying that the London Union Chapel show on February 15th by Lamont Dozier has now been cancelled, saying I will be refunded. Really, really sad news. Anyone have any news about what's going on?

What Love Has Joined Together (which version y'all rockin' with?)

To my knowledge, four Motown acts covered the legendary Miracles composition, What Love Has Joined Together, but I wonder which version tickles your fancy the most:

Mary Wells (1963)
The Temptations (1965)
The Miracles (1971)
Syreeta Wright (1972)

Let the choosing games begin!!!
