    For what it's worth, I've been involved in all the Motown Unreleased series except for the last [[I was on sick leave, but did contribute the original list to Universal), and I've heard nothing from...

    Maybe one reason for deciding to issue old tracks on what were strongly intended as B sides arose around the time that both sides of Mary Wells' 45, "You Lost The Sweetest Boy" and "What's Easy For...

    I sympathise, deeply, Robb!

    After losing various posts down the years, I've taken to typing my longer replies into TextPad and copying them here when I'm done. I hope you have the energy to do the...

    Hi Paul

    Here's the list from DFTMC, I hope it's readable. I think the singer notes came from the long-gone and much-missed "Yesterday-Today-Forever" magazine, but can't recall who compiled it. The...

    According to the session logs, the last Studio A session, an instrumental track for Art & Honey, was on 30 August 1973, and the last Studio B session, "voices" probably for Robert Bullock, was held...

    My apologies to all.

    A "Complete" issue of Brenda Holloway Motown studio recordings was planned before the pandemic struck, and I duly marked the tracks as "released" in my database. I never...

    I think you have to bear in mind that Shorty was 18/19 when this single came out, and that his singing would have changed somewhat before he recorded for Tri-Phi in 1962. It's listed at...

    I had a look a few years ago and there didn't seem to be enough Blackberries in the Vaults to fill a CD. We'll have to see what emerges when we dig into forthcoming volumes of "Motown Unreleased".

    I have none, and don't like to ask whether it's at all likely. I think that the deadline for 1970 copyrights has passed, but the time to ask is when the Vaults are open again. I'll post here when/if...

    Having raised some hopes, perhaps, I think I should write and say: "Motown Unreleased 1970" isn't going to happen. At least, not in 2020. Not good news for Christmas Day, I know, but most of you will...

    Ace have a new Motown CD scheduled for March 2021. Dunno yet whether we'll make it.

    Motown Unreleased 1970 is looking dubious at the moment, sad to say.

    Don't give up hope, Snakepit! But getting stuff from the Vaults is a bit of a struggle, given Covid.

    Stepin Fetchit was born May 30 1902, so he beats "Granny" by a few months. He was certainly a signed Motown artist, even if his LP never came out.

    I have brought this problem to the attention of someone at Universal who will know how to deal with it. The track was OK when it left me for mastering, but clearly something has gone wrong since then.
