    @marv2, but you know what's ironic? Some of the Motown artists like the 4 Tops and Marvin Gaye were almost more comfortable with the standards catalog than they were with the Motown fare they hit...

    That's true. On "Rock-a-Bye," Diane avoids the "Mammy mine" lyric and most definitely changes it to "Mommy mine."

    As skittish as we may be today about such lyrics, some of those songs which this...

    Or on "Jeopardy." Recently, there was an answer and the question was "Who is Diana Ross and the Supremes?" Surprisingly, it went unanswered. I think it was something pretty basic like, "These 3...

    That's funny. The West Coast Johnny Raven is a great guy. He once sold me a copy of the hard to find "This is the Story" 70s Supremes box set at its original price even though it was selling on...

    Lois looks so different than on her Vandellas covers. I'd love to hear this. There's a collection on Amazon but it's listed at $48 or something like that.

    I find Syreeta's version to be kind of a hodgepodge. She seems to rush through the lyrics and to me the verses don't make as much of a throughline as in the Supremes' version. Her voice and...

    I never liked the girls doing the standards when I was young but I've grown to love these songs as well as how the Motown artists interpreted the great American songbook. "There's a Place for Us" is...

    78!!! She can't be!

    Happy birthday, Dr. Reeves! Your "Greatest Hits" was the first album I ever bought!

    That is still my favorite one liner ever from "Golden Girls!"

    That's true, but the clock starts running when the Plaintiff "knew or should have known" about the damages. So if the fact that the masters were destroyed was kept secret until this year, then the...

    Thanks Reese! George Solomon did a great job compiling the material, it looks like. I notice that this CD has a very high sticker price on Amazon, so I'm glad we have the Hip-O set which more or...

    I saw this film last week and thought it well done. I appreciated that the actor did his own singing instead of lip syncing to Elton, which to me always sounds and seems fake, even though the actor...

    I think what these kinds of articles always miss is that you can't really compare then and now based on just the statistics. The stats fail to compare the kind of impact the singers or songs had on...

    I love "You Got What it Takes!" They all sound like they're having so much fun. I think working with Frank Wilson during this period and also not having the pressure of being part of such a highly...

    All honest opinions are honest even if they differ from oneís own. Does that really need to be stated here? Unbelievable.

    I love this set. I think all the 6 albums are really great examples of just how versatile Jr. Walker & the All Stars were. I really like his covers of the non-Motown material, such as "My Love" and...

    I agree "Floy Joy" is the most cohesive Terrell-led Supremes album, but to me it's so cohesive that it's just dull. So many of the songs seem almost like rewrites of each other. I have a hard time...

    @reese, now I do remember the Sam and Dave version of "I Take" is the one I remember. I'll have to seek out the Five DuTones "Feather" and see if that's the one I've heard also. I think it probably...

    David Ritz is a great writer and really captures his subjects well. I found "Divided Soul" fascinating and felt I understood Marvin much more after reading it. I agree the Ritz co-writer credit...

    "Shake a Tail Feather" and "I Take What I Want" are familiar tunes...did they have the original versions of these? I thought "Tail Feather" was more from the earlier part of the 60s, by someone like...
