A Love Like Yours - Kim Weston

I recently was listening to my KW Greatest Hits & Rare Classics. There was a song on there that I had forgotten about, A Love Like Yours. I checked and the earlier one was naturally by Martha & the Vandellas and Kim's was released about three years later.

Kim did an outstanding job on A Love Like Yours. It is within striking distance of the Vandellas version. There are some other good characteristics about Kim's version.

What do others think about this selection?

Ironically, I also have her 2-CD set The Motown Anthology consisting of 48 songs, but A Love Like Yours is NOT included in this collection. I guess I did not fully appreciate Kim as I have other artists, but after listening to the Greatest Hits and Rare Classics, I changed my mind and am more and more convinced that they did not fully develop her into the superstar they could.

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.

Kim Weston MGM CD available on eBay

Does anyone have any knowledge whether this CD is a bootleg or an original? It is difficult to determine from the listing. The price is astronomical. Nothing in the listing leads me to believe it is legitimate, but I really do not know.
