    eagerly anticipating hehehe

    I've listened to the tracks quite a bit and added some to playlists. I think Penny Pincher and Send Me No Flowers are among the strongest tracks on disc 2. Don't take...

    the sound of the andantes changes quite a bit. and it might be that the vocalists are changing so not really the andantes. the BG sound on Love Child to me is too husky and anonymous. now the high...

    i think this is a fair assessment. I like the Velvelettes but agree that there just really isn't much spark. and IMO their lead single was talented but uninspiring

    the andantes did have an...

    Bobby Taylor did the sessions for It's Too Late and i think it's one of the stronger "promises kept" tracks. it's a beautiful song and jean is (typically) wonderful on it. and the backing track and...

    i'd love to hear MJC work with Carole King and sing I feel the earth move. the whole Tapestry album would have worked great for the girls. i think that would have been an amazing match for an...

    it's a great one. i was familiar with it from my WDOLG album but had sort of forgotten it until i bought one of those budget cassette tapes in the 80s that had a hit or two plus various random album...

    the chart rankings might have gone down but sales went up

    Grapevine - for both Marvin and Gladys

    well said! motown was in the business of making money. like ALL businesses. but fans attach a huge sentimental element to this product because it's essentially a soundtrack of our lives and...

    ^i think if Deke had had the proper time to construct his material and songs, it might have been ok. after Surrender i think it would have been time to try something else. and they would have...

    but would they have been able to retain their reign in 68 and 69? black music was changing rapidly. frankly all of music was. everything has it's time and place. it's quite possible that the...

    ^i have a box of old bootleg cassette tapes from the 80s and 90s and I need to see which might contain alt versions of material that we've been recently receiving in the EEs. didn't they also do...

    but Diana was 10 years younger when she did the cover of diana 80. and it's not that she has to be in sequin regalia on all albums. diana has been known for making her own look and not following...

    I think Surrender should have been the follow up single. Remember me is lovely and great but Surrender has more drama. yet it's different enough from Mountain to not be a copy cat.

    then they...

    Obviously the split was bad for specific artists like the Four Tops. MRATV struggled too but Martha's mental breakdowns and drugs surely played some part in that too.

    These are the five shows officially released and once they hit it big. There are bootlegs and many shorter shows from earlier days

    ^exactly. Trying to hard is the perfect description. she just looks out of place. now certainly no one would deny that she was beautiful and young looking. for her age!

    always fun to compare fan notes. see i'm just the opposite of what you wrote. IMO Johnny's vocals on Someday are brief ad libs and don't really distract from the supreme's sound (regardless that...

    it's fun to take the live songs that they did multiple times and listen to each version. like Somewhere or Make Someone Happy. it's really an interesting progression as they became more seasoned...

    my problem with the cover is that she just looks tacky. This is a woman who had built a significant amount of her career on looks and image and IMO this was just the wrong image to convey the music....

    Floy Joy
    High Energy
    Sup 75
    Jimmy Webb

    i do agree that WDFFIL was, while IMO fine enough as an album, was a bit lackluster for the big debut at RCA. Interesting to think if she'd crafted the album more around the sound from Mirror Mirror...

    i don't disagree with Ross' immense talent. But like a wonderful symphony orchestra, it's important to have equally talented people to play/sing with. M and F (and later C) also were incredibly...

    exactly - at least get this stuff digitized and in a cloud storage. then they can release from that. but so sad to think of the creative and artistic loss
