    Is the link dodgy?

    I used it and it sent Safari on my iPad into a loop. Not sure whether or not it left a little something extra on my iPad, either.

    Rumer had a Top 3 million-selling album in the UK with her 2010 album "Seasons Of My Soul". It's a great pop album and worth checking out.

    She's been around the UK scene ever since.

    I thought that he left Motown when he turned 21 and headed off to New York to record the self-funded “Music Of My Mind”.

    Musically, Stevie left Motown when he turned 21 and never went back.

    And when the Hitsville studios closed and The Funk Brothers were dropped, Motown left Motown.

    Is this really a jukebox record?

    Three tracks per side would probably make it too quiet for a jukebox, and a small centre hole would stop it from being loaded into most jukeboxes.

    This looks...

    Motown hasn't really existed as an active force in music and culture for decades.

    Instead, it's now just another label owned by a multi-national that happens to have a glorious back catalogue and...

    Great track.

    I heard the version by the Isley Brothers first, however, when it was released as a single in the U.K. in 1969.

    Often, the first version that one hears becomes the personal...

    Agreed about the album mix. Starting the single off with the party chat would have given Tony Blackburn something to spark off. He'd have probably asked "Hey guys, what do you think about this...

    I bought "What's Going On" after "Save The Children" was released as a single in the UK and received airplay on Tony Blackburn's Radio 1 breakfast show. My musician mother heard it playing and made a...

    There's most likely a generational changing of the guard going on here, and older albums are probably being viewed through a rather different lens.

    For instance, Sgt Pepper holds great...

    Many thanks for sharing this. I'm not quite sure what to make of it at all.

    The drumming's too busy in places, too indistinct in a number of places, and a bit of a mess at the end of the...

    To be a British Motown they really need to set up in Derby or Coventry or somewhere else where they make cars.

    They also need for some of their roster of artists to be made up from people who've...

    I love the drumming on this track. Pistol, innit? It’s fast and exciting with great fills, but I’ve always found it to be too far back in the mix for maximum impact in both mono and stereo.

    Maybe the drummer was sat in Detroit while the other musicians were in LA. That would explain why he sounds so distant. :)

    LA tracks seemed to have a different, softer piano style and the drummer often sounded as though he was outside the studio and down the hall as per "More Love", especially in stereo.

    I feel that...

    Limmie was male and Jimmie was female, but a lot of people mistakenly thought that it was the other way round.

    Jimmie was the lead vocalist on this track.

    Quite possibly. It goes off in a different direction to their prior and subsequent hits, with a hard, driving beat that shouts very simply “Get Up And Dance”. In that way it has its own kind of...

    I find your comment about not being innovative enough interesting. What else was there around that sounded like it?

    Best heard in mono for side A tracks 1 and 2 - “Reach” and “Renee” - at the very least.

    ”I’ll Turn To Stone” and “Wonderful Baby” are also (IMHO) best heard in mono. “Bernadette” is also more...
