    Ouch!

    I remember when everyone went out and bought CD copies of albums that they already owned on vinyl, and then gave the vinyl editions away to charity shops, where guys like me bought them for...

    For me, the thing that defined Motown was its seminal output. It truly set musical trends from around 1963 until the early 70s, starting with people like Smokey, Mickey Stevenson, and H-D-H, and...

    Now, that's a fresh perspective showing the bigger picture.

    It suggests that Motown in Detroit would have died a death from a thousand little bites had it stayed.

    Having listened to the single and album mixes, I think that it is both Uriel and Pistol.

    Uriel's heavy-hitting style on the snare and toms is there right up front, along with his "Rat-tat-a-tat"...

    Actually, all anyone is doing is sharing their opinion of a 1981 single by Diana Ross.

    Lol. Agreed.

    There's a great old Bo Diddley song called "Who Do You Love?" but, happily, I've not come across one called "Who Do You Hate?", which is a sentiment that I can't empathise with.

    This certainly wasn't what I expected after the Chic album or any of the Michael Masser ballads that came out sounding like old, previously unreleased recordings.

    I say old chap, it's a jolly good song, what?

    Valerie Simpson's left hand is definitely working very hard, and doing much more than just tickling the old ivories.

    For me, the big difference between '[[You're My) Soul And Inspiration' and genuine Phil Spector productions is the sound of the drums.

    On Spector productions, they're thunderingly deep-sounding...
