    As HDH was planning to leave Motown, Smokey tried to convince Brian Holland to stay and let Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier go. This was a shortsighted effort to salvage...

    Yes,I couldn't agree more. This tends to happen to me when I listen closely to Roger Troutman's productions. He's the master of the talkbox and was one of the greatest guitar players ever.But what's...

    I like this version too. Gladys Horton is the lead vocalist. As far as the background vocals go, I agree that the sound is a little different. Maybe Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier actually used the...

    California Sunset is one of the few great albums that Lamont produced on someone else. Who knows how it would've done commercially had Berry Gordy got behind it. Suzanne DePasse approved of this...

    G.C. Cameron: You're What's Missing In My Life in 1977. The track "Don't Tear Down What Took So Long To Build" is the standout track to me. Great James Carmichael arrangement as well as a shades of...

    Very interesting. Personally I don't think there was a need for a sequel, it's fine as it is. If I learned anything at all from watching this it's how B.G. used certain tactics to make people...

    Never actually listened to the "Duet" version of this tune all the way through. As I stated long ago, the mix in my opinion is less than appealing. Here's my take on events:

    I don't feel we need to fret. After all we're only in the second quarter(I believe) of the music calendar. Tony Rounce more or less governed the Undisputed Truth release. Keith Hughes will more than...

    As much as I appreciate having heard this tune, I can't imagine it being a monster smash. From the sound of the record I think it's safe to call it an L.A. recording. Frank's decision to become a...
