    Not trying to throw shade but I was thinking when I read it, why would you want to tell every last detail about it? As my folks would say "Don't you go running to tell all our business!"
  3. On the left is his story, on the right is his...

    On the left is his story, on the right is his story and somewhere in the middle is the truth. In an episode of the old "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" there was an auto accident that had been viewed by...

    I only bought the first book -I kept saying I was going to buy the 2nd book, but I think I was afraid that the first one was a hard act to follow!- but I did really enjoy it. The writing felt...
  5. I really appreciate that boyfromxtown. I've...

    I really appreciate that boyfromxtown. I've always been a little cloudy on the timeline of when Mildred, Norma and Bertha had stopped recording and Sandra/Annette joined. I've been playing my...

    Yeah, I had to study that one but the smile, the lips give it away. Mildred had a very identifiable smile; in particular, it's the upper lip that I notice; her smile is similar to a girl I had a huge...

    You got the "Bat Signal" I was hoping you would chime in on this. And as near as I can tell it seems Norma and Mildred may have been performing at different times once they went to a trio. In...
  8. Identifying The Velvelettes

    Ok, so I think I finally got this. When it comes to girl groups, one thing I've noticed as that women can drastically change their appearance from photo to photo making it difficult to identify...

    Ok, wow, that's a great set list! Wanda tore it up on the album version of Barefootin' and I'll bet she brought the house down, doing it live.

    Do you remember what songs they sang? Oh how I would have loved seeing them live back in the day!
  11. Wow. This is the kind of talk I find absolutely...

    Wow. This is the kind of talk I find absolutely fascinating. I had an idea of what you were talking about, and then again, I didn't. When speaking of inversions and passing chords, I had some inkling...

    It seems Norman Whitfield really had faith in this song, having recorded it with The Velvelettes and The Marvelettes, twice (and then finally getting a release with Gladys Knight.) Hard to choose, I...

    This version always gets me revved up to warp drive. Everything about this is good. You can hear Gladys is maturing as a vocalist, becoming more stylized. Hearing the combined talents of The...
  14. I often thought about this too and out of all the...

    I often thought about this too and out of all the Supremes albums, "More Hits" is just about the most cohesive. There is an alchemy there (much the same as the Four Tops Second Album.) This also...

    How is this guy getting these? Most have been released but that mix of The Marvelettes hit "When You're Young And In Love" is a new one on me. That isn't the single mix the public heard on their 45s....
  16. My thing is, if Carol played on the Supremes' A...

    My thing is, if Carol played on the Supremes' A Go Go L.A. sessions, then the bass lines there in no way even approach the busy bass line of I Was Made To Love Her. Listening to the bassbline on The...
  17. For whatever my 2 cents are worth, "Misery Makes...

    For whatever my 2 cents are worth, "Misery Makes Its Home In My Heart" was the song that made finding the mono album worth it. It has a much more classic Motown mono sound- big, booming, lots of...
  18. Only thing is, I can see they're charging you...

    Only thing is, I can see they're charging you more for the one album at nearly 35.00 vs. getting it for 30.00 if you bought the 5-album set (30.00 x 5) Still, I totally get what you mean!
  19. That's the unfortunate thing about graphic arts...

    That's the unfortunate thing about graphic arts in recent years; if you don't do it right, it ends up making your product look like it's from Bootleg City. I get the direction aimed for with the...

    Yes, I do like that those anthologies have been made available! Having those is like going above and beyond my wildest Motown dream!
  21. I was really disappointed by this. I bought the...

    I was really disappointed by this. I bought the CD release of Vol 5 and was expecting to finally get a clean version of the stereo mixes of The Marvelettes' "I'll Keep Holding On" and Kim Weston's...
  22. Like lightning to read those words. Forever, I'd...

    Like lightning to read those words. Forever, I'd hear and read that the reason so many at Motown failed to be promoted was because of The Supremes. I bought into that because it made sense. The...

    "Who You Gonna Run To" is a great argument on the side of it's the singer, not the song. In the hands of Mickey McCullers, it's a pleasant, if not memorable song. In the clutches of Paul Williams...

    With Ivy Jo Hunter and Mickey Stevenson producing, I definitely could hear The Contours doing an excellent cover of this. But ONLY with Billy Gordon singing lead.

    Billy had the right kind of...
