    And you suceeded beautifully, Ralph! The percussion used throughout is magnificent! I've gotta get out my CD copy and give it a play or two.

    No problem, Ralph. I was a nighthawk back then and still am!

    My favorite Marvin Gaye years are those released in 1966-1970 -- the H-D-H and Norman Whitfield productions. And, of course, Ashford & Simpson's Marvin & Tammi compositions & productions.

    I wish you had, Ralph. If you recall, I love XIT's first two albums on Rare Earth -- especially the first one -"Plight Of The Red Man".

    I saw "The Originals" name on the above list and immediately thought, "Thank you, Sweet Jesus! At long last -- "Naturally Together", "Definitions," "Games People Play", or "Communique" -- all of...

    The first time I ever heard of The Supremes was in September 1964. I was at my grandparent's home, listening to their beautiful table-top Philco radio with push-buttons in the beautiful wooden...

    Reese, to my knowledge, there are only two examples of The Marvelettes performing [[lip-syncing") live, and they're both for "Don't Mess With Bill":

    I agree, Kenny. Wanda took over lead-vocal chores of The Marvelettes in 1965. After hitting big with "Don't Mess With Bill" in 1965, Motown had ample opportunity to catch at least one live set...

    Thanks for sharing that nice write-up, Woodward. I've gotta wonder, why are so.many [[including Motown fans) referring to Wanda as Wanda Young? After marrying Bobby Rogers of The Miracles, she...

    Lately, it seems that every time I log into the Forum, another one of my favorite artists has passed. Really sorry to hear about Joe Simon's passing. Spring Record's Raeford Gerald produced some...

    My friend Kenny [[above) wrote and told me of the sad news about Wanda. My heart is broken. As much as I've loved all of the Motown artists since 1964, Wanda Rogers & The Marvelettes have remained...

    I've always gotten a kick out of your Motown stories, Ralph! I could listen to yours and Russ' Motown tales all day! I'm truly saddened to hear of Gil's passing. He and Pete were always my...

    I've always loved Kim Weston's Motown recordings. To this day, I can't understand for the life of me why "Helpless" wasn't a huge hit. It had 1966 HDH stamped all over it, and it was the perfect...

    Thanks, Carlo! When it comes to SAW, more often than not, I tend to prefer the album version of their hits over the remixed versions.

    Carlo, I had no idea that Steps have a new 3-CD Remix collection. I tried to check it out on Amazon and eBay, but to no avail. What is the official title of the set?

    Thanks, I wasn't aware of that. But it makes perfect sense to protect the relevance. Otherwise, anybody could 'claim' to have a hit record.

    I wonder how many CD sales it would take to launch Diana's "Thank You" CD into the U.S. or UK Top 10.

    Carlo, along with djessie, you can add my name to the seemingly-growing list of Steps fans. A year or two ago, I discovered Stock, Aitken, Waterman [[aka SAW). Being the completist that I am, I...

    Back to ABBA. I'm not a devout fan, but I like them well enough to have invested in the purchase of their 1994 4-CD box set, "Thank You For The Music". On that set is a previously-unreleased,...

    Laura Lee is among my favorite HDH Invictus/Hot Wax artists. Outstanding tracks for me are Since I Fell For You, Crumbs Off The Table, Don't Leave Me Starving For Your Love, [[If You Want To Try...

    I'm so sorry to hear of Evette Benton's passing. The Sweethearts of Sigma were among my favorite back-up performers -- right up there with the best of the renowned back-up groups like Motown's...
