    I've been playing this the last few days and even after some 20+ years, that part gives me chills. Just Tammi, a couple guitar licks and James's bass. I keep wondering how they came up with that;...

    Thanks Ollie. I do the same thing a lot- I would have done this and that differently- but then I have to catch myself and realize my reasoning is divorced from whatever was in fashion back then. I...

    Yes. I feel strongly that this is what's being missed when folks look back. Berry knew what he was doing with these specialty albums. It was right for the times. For some reason, it also is forever...

    Totally get it. But we say these things from a 2000s sensibility. What's easily missed is that a 1960s sensibility may have been FAR different. So what seems questionable or even obvious today was...

    Wow! Yes I remember those Jet magazine Soul Brothers charts. Can't recall if the name was changed slightly in the 70s, but you reminded me I did look at those too as a kid.

    And it really was...

    I think it was my obsessive reading about all things Motown as a kid made me more aware of the charts. Then I bought The Rolling Stone Illustrated Encyclopedia of Rock and Roll and REALLY learned...

    And somehow as I was typing all that, the answer became clearer. As they say, to ask a question is to answer it. Your reply pretty much summed it up well!
  9. Don't R&B chart placements mean anything?

    So, lately, I've been playing my Motown Complete Singles sets and reading the essays of each song. I was reminded of something that's always bothered me; there are many Motown records that, while...

    I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. If anything, it certainly gave lots of opportunities to determine the old question, "is it the singer or the song?" In listening to some of the...

    I'd definitely love to have "That's The Way It Goes" as a candidate as well

    Some of the pre '66 Motown songs with killer James Jamerson bass lines have to include Hattie Littles' "Love, Trouble, Heartaches and Misery" ('64). James does mind-bending things on that one....

    Thanks for the inclusion of "Windmills of Your Mind." I just saw that movie recently and enjoyed the theme song. So it's incredible hearing a Motown version and sung so well by Chuck Jackson.

    you guys need to listen more closely to those albums. If anything, at least with the Marvelettes, there were producers who were still opting to use a blend of the Andantes and the Marvelettes on...

    I think I like Carol. I want to like Carol. I certainly respect her as a musician. So I want to believe she is just confusing herself about what tracks she's played on. The Easy way to verify her...
  16. I like that!!!!!!

    I like that!!!!!!

    Looking backwards at their career, we wonder why the Four Tops and other Motown groups did all these covers. This is where knowing the context of the times helps to understand some of this stuff. I...

    Yes she does. And the sound of the Motown studio was at its best. I love how sharp and crisp everything sounds.

    I have to thank you. This brought such a great smile to my face just now and a nice laugh. I love the Bible and maybe that's why it hit me just right! Absolutely love it! Should be canonized in The...

    Just as one of those trivia things to give some context to the Elgins' name, here in the States there is a town called Elgin (ELL-jin). It's somewhat northwest of Chicago. The city was known in part...

    That's why I took my album back for a refund. I didn't like the overdubs at all. But a couple of the tunes stuck in my mind, especially the song in the video above. So I went back and bought it.
  23. That would be great!

    That would be great!

    The song I posted, "That's The Way It Goes" has not, to my knowledge, been released in its original mix. I keep hoping it will turn up one day.
  25. Motown Remembers Marvin Gaye Never Before Released Masters

    This was a very interesting album, "Motown Remembers Marvin Gaye Never Before Released Masters." Vaulted material from the 60's (and maybe a couple from 1970?) What was interesting was that there...
