    The sound quality of Why....... was resolved on The Complete Duets 2 CD album. I always wondered why the LP had a the problem and whether it was resolved for the A-side release of the song in the UK....

    With all of this debate, I need to remind myself that Tammi was reportedly taken to Motown's recording studios in a wheelchair to record YAINTGB. That determination prevailed even later when she was...

    Papa Was A Rollin' Stone on 45 was split over the two sides.

    Are you aware of other songs recorded in that sequence Paul where he mentions Tammi's name?

    For me, a key reason to think it's Tammi on YAINTGB is that Marvin mentions her name, "Tammi listen". I don't think that he would have mentioned her name on a song where Valerie is singing or where...

    Perhaps ITITALT would have had more impact if the final chorus wasn't cut so short. The alternate version on the expanded album had a "fantastic celebratory feel of finding love" with it's longer...

    This sounds interesting as I have always felt that Diana & Marvin sounded lacking in dynamics, with some aspects of the recordings sounding slightly muffled.

    What's Going On should be a contender...

    I hope that Motown finds an opportunity to create a duet of Diana and Marvin's Dark Side Of The World. John Perrone did a great job with his version but when chatting with him once he explained that...

    I bought the album at the time of its release. I was very pleased to hear previously unreleased songs by Marvin and I agree with your view on the best tracks.

    I’m trying to think if all the album...

    I’m pleased to say that my COM5 arrived today. I’m delighted with every aspect of it, packaging, track information, selection of tracks and the sound quality.

    Well done to all involved, especially...

    I have always liked the song but felt that it would have been improved by being a bit more up tempo.

    A great vocal performance by Diana though!

    I suspect that the album mix of WGO might have faired better as a single in the UK. The USA single mix at times uses the "wrong" lead vocal as well as just sounding "odd" at times.

    I bought the...

    It's a great song and review! I always thought that the drums sounded a bit lightweight on the mono 45 mix in comparison with the stereo mix. Perhaps this was to be more aligned with Eddie's...

    I remember, a while back now, someone saying that Kim Weston's Your Wonderful Sweet Sweet Love's backing track was recorded in LA. I was surprised as it has a more "robust Hitsville sound", perhaps...

    LA backing tracks in the golden era

    During the mid 60s there were several backing tracks that were recorded in LA which sounded more like Hitsville recordings as opposed to the usual LA sound. I'm Ready For Love is one example I can...

    The mono mix of Itching on the The Supremes Ultimate Collection is the most vibrant of any version I've heard. It just leaps out of the speakers. Must have been a floor filler in its day.
  21. I wonder if the release of Itching coincided with...

    I wonder if the release of Itching coincided with an increase of Motown's popularity in discos? If this is the case it might have been Motown's way of ensuring that the Supremes were heard in that...

    WOW!

    Are the original master tapes used for these refresh mixes or is it the reprocessing of the stereo mix of the orignal song?

    Very impressed!

    TYK1986, they were very engaging with the audience, everyone was up and dancing. A song that failed to chart, most surprisingly, is If Ever A Love There Was. Aretha is much loved in the UK so I would...

    My view is that the driving HDH/Funks songs had big appeal in the UK. The Four Tops released many songs in that format whereas The Temptations released more of a mix of song types. The Temptations...
