    Stepin Fetchit was born May 30 1902, so he beats "Granny" by a few months. He was certainly a signed Motown artist, even if his LP never came out.

    As for living - Joe Messina's still with us, I...

    I have brought this problem to the attention of someone at Universal who will know how to deal with it. The track was OK when it left me for mastering, but clearly something has gone wrong since then.

    This release was not intended to be a "Complete", only an "Expanded", version of the album. Stereo versions of "Sparrow" and "He" had appeared on the 2007 reissue of "In Loving Memory", so it was...

    Thanks for all the positive replies on the San Remo Strings. I'd better dig around and see what there is, and find out whether there might be a slot for them in the Motown 60 schedule. Doubtful at...

    Somehow this one just grabbed me during the prep phase and wouldn't let go. What do people think of these guys? Why are there no legit, mastered from tape, digital compilations of their work? Would...

    The Utopians

    Anyone know anything about the Utopians? You may have heard their "Whole lot of shakin' in my heart" on Cellarful of Motown Volume 4. All I know is they cut four tracks for Motown, and recorded all...

    The criterion is, it's tracks that were COMPLETED in 1968. Bradsupremes, you're right: some of these were indeed started in 66/67, and three are overdubs on 1965 tracks.

    We're moving forward...

    Thanks for this, Ralph. I'd wondered about "The Pharmacy"! Seems unlikely they would have had the equipment "permanently installed" in a van back in the Graystone days.

    Why would Motown NOT received fees for licensing "Heat Wave"? Their legal people were very hot in the sixties, "re-claiming" such songs as Len Barry's "1-2-3" and Dee Dee Sharp's "Mashed Potato Time"...
