    The male voices in the background belong to the Love-Tones, according to the review in “Motown Junkies.” (BTW, will we ever hear from the “Nixon Administration” again?)

    What a fascinating documentary. Thanks, soulwally, for posting this!
    P.S. They did a very good job of recreating “the sound."

    Motown missed the boat in not releasing this and not just as an album cut. It could have been big as a single!

    marv2, so few of Brenda’s recordings sound like they were done in the “snake pit.” I’d guess the tracks were by L.A.’s Wrecking Crew rather than the Funk Bros.

    This really is a great track, kenneth! It has a groove similar to their big hit “On And On” from 1974.

    Brenda Holloway

    As we know, Brenda Holloway started her Motown tenure in Los Angeles with producers Hal Davis and Marc Gordon. Listening to her recordings, it sounds as if most them were not cut in Detroit with the...

    Motown Eddie, of the three you mentioned, “Since You’ve Been Gone” may have had the most potential to chart big as a single for the Tops.

    Four Tops Second Album

    This certainly was one the Tops’ strongest albums, with three songs becoming very successful singles: “I Can’t Help Myself,” “It’s The Same Old Song” and “Something About You.” But there are other...

    Thanks, StuBass1, for explaining how the nomination process works. It helps make sense of why some who deserve this honor may never get it.

    That’s a very good question daviddesper. The tune did a little better on Cashbox (#10) and was #1 for eight weeks (!) on the Billboard r&b chart. It should have easily made the top five on Bb’s pop...

    I think you’re right marv2. If you compare the backing vocals on the Supremes’ and Kim Weston’s versions there is a difference. Sounds like Mary, Flo and one or more Andantes.

    Very good vocals by Martha. This recording, however, sounds to me like a Martha solo effort rather than a Martha & The Vandellas or even a Martha & The Andantes work. The instrumentation barely...
