    Yes, reese, the early fade out sort of kills the production. I wonder why that wasn’t corrected.

    Just listened to the alternate mix followed by Martha & The Vandellas’ version. While the remix is a great improvement over the anemic original mix, M&TV's is still superior, imo, on almost any...

    Mary Esther Wells was born on May 13, 1943. I first heard her on the radio in early 1961 singing “Bye Bye Baby.” And so my love affair with Motown music began. Mary’s voice and talent were unique....

    One reaction to the late John Perrone’s extended, extra-verse remix was that “clearly" Mary and Cindy were not singing the first line. If so, does anyone have any ideas as to who it was? Andantes? ...

    I’d add “Stop Takin’ Me For Granted” which was the B-side of “Ain’t It The Truth” Mary’s first single on 20th. Both sides made the Hot 100 but, unfortunately, did not go too far up the chart. Also...
