    Carlo, along with djessie, you can add my name to the seemingly-growing list of Steps fans. A year or two ago, I discovered Stock, Aitken, Waterman [[aka SAW). Being the completist that I am, I...

    Back to ABBA. I'm not a devout fan, but I like them well enough to have invested in the purchase of their 1994 4-CD box set, "Thank You For The Music". On that set is a previously-unreleased,...

    I'm so sorry to hear of Evette Benton's passing. The Sweethearts of Sigma were among my favorite back-up performers -- right up there with the best of the renowned back-up groups like Motown's...

    From my experience over the years, the easiest way to remember it is that the Mono version of "Quicksand" has the hot drum solo in which the drums are echoed. In the Stereo version, the drum solo is...

    Florence, let's not forget that Diana has a whole new legion of young fans -- the same ones who helped to push her Eric Kupper dance remixes to #1 on the Dance charts over the past 3 years. [["Ain't...

    Thanks for clearing that up, Nitro. It's always great to hear that good things are still happening for Diana. Heaven knows, she works her butt off to achieve it. Now, if the U.S. would just wake...

    You're right -- not #1 [[yet!), but #6 and then #3. But, still, the point remains, how did it manage to get so high on the UK charts? Did it get heavy radio play?

    My favorite singer/performer/entertainer has always been -- is now -- and will ALWAYS be Diana Ross. She has stage presence and charisma like no other. Her shows are fueled by an electric charge in...

    Yeah, I hate to admit it, but you may very well be right. I doubt if it will get much airplay here in the U.S. I wonder how "If The World Just Danced" got to #1 in the UK? Did it get heavy...

    Shorty Long had at least mild hits with "Here Coes The Judge" and "Function At The Junction". As a Motown artist, he should have been recognized and included.
