    It's a nice contrast to the Albert King version. Now that I hear them back to back, they don't really have the same vibe. I remembered Percy's voice as being somewhat rougher [[like on "When a Man...

    I agree with you, and we have so little on these early artists in a live setting that it's just so hard to appreciate what hard work they had on the road. So I'm grateful we have whatever we...

    I have the box set of all of Percy Sledge’s Atlantic recordings and I’ll have to listen to it because I don’t recall hearing him do “Love Me Tender.” I’m not surprised though that this song is very...

    I guess the "!2 Year Old Genius" LP wasn't included. That entire album was [[supposedly) live, wasn't it, or was it just "Fingertips?"

    I wish I had picked up those CDs when they were available. ...

    The editing on those early live albums was too atrocious to be believed. The sudden changes in the tapes when suddenly the crowd noise disappears - or suddenly appears. I was probably in my early...

    Wow, I have to seek those recordings out on YouTube. I had no idea. Thanks Joseph!

    Yikes! While I'm thrilled we have young fans of Ross and Motown on SDF, I sure feel old when I read comments like this! I was 6 decades before that! As one of my all time favorites once sang,...

    @lakedistrictlad1,

    That was really a treat hearing them do some of those songs for the very first time. I really enjoyed it. Also I guess I learned something from the original lyrics that were...

    You know what surprised me, was that she only sang the theme song in three James Bond movies. Based on my memory and her reputation, I assumed it was several more than that! Great to see her...

    @sansradio and Reese,

    I remember back in the day I had recorded both of their Christmas albums back to back onto a cassette. I enjoyed listening to them both, except for that one song, which was...

    Wow, it’s interesting that she had to sue to get him to stop using her name and likeness a few years ago. Isn’t he the kid who is on one of her early Christmas songs and keeps asking for a Mr....

    @sansradio,

    Thank you for clarifying that. If I could stay off topic just for a moment, I’d like your opinion about something else regarding the film. I forget when I first saw the movie, and I...

    @P/M Gary,

    If history is an indication, as usual you and I will completely disagree on the music that we both love…Motown. But I have not bought the album yet. I plan to, but just have not at this...

    It is strange that if this is the group that recorded for RCA and not Motown, that the photo came from the studio of the man who did all the mid-1960s photographs of the various Motown artists. James...

    It definitely appears that the Ross house contained two residences. I always thought of a duplex as a side-by-side home; this one appears to be what I would call flats with a single entrance but then...

    I think to surmise as many people have that Motown entered the deal to “get rid of Mary“ is not really an accurate rendering. Obviously, the album was part of a settlement with Mary so...

    Well I don’t find it odd at all that they all lived on the same street. After all we all know from the “Playboy“ album cover that the Marvelettes even all lived in the same house!
