    The remaster on this was done so beautifully that, similar to the “A Go Go,” remaster, it made me fall in love with an album I thought was only ho-hum the first time around. As for the “Funny Girl,”...

    @milven,

    The drawing on the label and the 12” sleeves, which I always loved, certainly paid homage to the film.

    I completely agree with this assessment. The song is pleasant but to me definitely lacks excitement.


    The only thing I disagree with you about, is that I love the song “one more chance“! Anything...

    I think from the length of the track and the sound of it, it seems like the original version from the first issues of the soundtrack album. Also if the video is to be trusted, the album pictured has...

    @boogie,

    I wouldn’t have been able to pick out a specific Kraftwerk song from memory that influenced the Donna Summer/ Giorgio Moroder track, but this interesting article points to one particular...

    I agree. I think it definitely has a lot of influence from the earlier Donna Summer song. The opening sort of staccato background and the music during the break is very evocative of “I Feel Love.” ...

    @paul_nixon,

    how lucky you were to have known Deke Richards. He certainly seems to be a major player during the latter phase of Motown’s golden age. From buying records, I knew his name well...

    I know! I think it was in a Goldmine article years ago where I read that. Even in the article, they fact checked her. I imagine she was pretty old by then. Maybe she was suffering from Quincy...

    @Peace,


    I never heard that Dionne Warwick had brought BJ Thomas into Specter Records. I would say that if that story was circulated by Florence Greenberg, the head of the company, I think she...

    This really sounds like a great album and many of the songs are now on YouTube. It doesn’t seem that Amazon has a physical release of it yet but there’s a deluxe version of the regular MP3 album so...

    He was one of my all-time favorite singers along with James Brown. I too agree he was underrated and you didn’t realize how great he was because of his understated style. He had so many great songs...

    But not for defamation, Carlo. By definition, you cannot defame the dead. So Quincy Jones or anybody else is safe saying anything they want to about Elvis Presley and his estate can’t take any action...

    I remember listening to that live album quite often, and will never forget that raunchy Interlude during the song “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.” Not to be too specific, but I think in...

    I never knew anything about Billy Preston‘s life. What a sad story that is. Somebody should try to make a film out of that. I think Netflix could do a great job with it with someone like Ryan Murphy...
