    The Supremes are clearly singing on this wonderful piece of UK Motown heritage:

    Motown property songs, just for fun

    I was thinking that Diana Ross has three songs concerning property:

    My Place
    It's My House
    This House

    The Four Tops have:

    7 Rooms Of Gloom
    Macarthur Park

    The Stylistics You Are Everything didn't chart in the UK (as far as I can establish) but Diana and Marvin's version reached no 5 in the UK chart. At the time this was a massively popular song in...

    "Not an obvious Tamla sound" - that's totally wrong! It has all of the classic ingredients, driving bass, tambourine, guitar pluck on the drum beat and to top it all the magnificent performance of...

    Alternate takes question

    Over the years we have been fortunate to have heard many alternate takes on the expanded albums by Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and The Supremes. Also some have also appeared on L&F albums.

    Sotosound, I couldn't have put it any better. However, I'd add that the US mix seemed to remove the mellotron which is a shame as that is a key Moodies ingredient. I might be wrong but didn't Maggie...

    Thinking about it, I cannot recall a period of time when Diana Ross hasn't been popular in the UK :)

    Perhaps from a USA perspective marv2 but the opposite is true in the UK. Fortunately, Diana Ross' popularity isn't USA-centric.

    The drumming on FCT is very lacking in my opinion, albeit the song's intro (bass?) drumming is good. I think the song overall has an overly unattractive lightweight feeling that contrasts sharply...

    When I'm With You - a fantastic song and vocal performances.

    Has that ever been proven? If true then it would suggest that Marvin cut his track first but left a "message" for Tammi. I do recall someone on here, several years back, saying that she was in a...

    Given Tammi's health situation it makes the words sung by Marvin even more heartfelt, especially when he ad-libs "Tammi listen". So much emotion in the singing, lyrics and production. Absolute magic!

    I really like the song. As folk say above, it has a strong Four Tops vibe.

    The intro reminds me of the Velvelettes' A Bird In The Hand which is no bad thing!

    Well done Elton!
