    I'm really curious because Carl Jones (one of the three Love-Tones who sang on the first couple of Mary Wells hits) was killed in a barroom fight in early 1963. The Love-Tones still remained active...

    That's a really good point, RanRan... Maybe "Touch" would've fared better as a love duet--between The Supremes and The Four Tops? It does make sense to either have one (female) voice singing it (to...

    Sup_Fan, I totally get what you're saying about having a feeling (and rightfully so) that you might never see (CDs) again, so just buying all of them when you had the chance. That's basically how...

    Mary's pause and look around that you're faulting is part of the performance (for better or worse). The point they were making between trading leads between Mary and Scherrie was, "he's MY man... no...

    NOW we know for sure that the man in this photo is not (as has been theorized):

    1) Eddie Kendricks
    2) Frank Wilson

    It's clothing designer Bernard "The Beautiful" Johnson!

    I know it’s not the focus here, but since the track has been discussed (vilified?!), I love “You’re My Driving Wheel.” BUT! Yes, its’ biggest problem is the dumb title and often weak lyrics. The...

    David, that version on "Lost & Found" and the Japanese Quad LP from the '70s is a different music track, vocals, etc., to the released version. It was "version 1." It's not an alternate mix of the...

    Really great thought about “Keep An Eye” as a follow-up, RanRan. I wonder if it might’ve needed some musical overdubbing though if released as a single? I feel as though it possibly needed a little...

    How about, “Came the telegram, mama passed away reaching out her hand.”? The clear implication would’ve been that she was reaching out for her estranged daughter. The homemade jam part sounds messy...

    Those are two songs that DO capture the flavor of the Motown Sound. I don't know how popular they were here in the US, but I will say that I would've welcomed them more than the much more popular...

    The waistline almost looks like a “cummerbund” add-on. Maybe the cummerbund was original—and not used...maybe it wasn’t. If you watch the video performance, the dresses DO have that striping pattern,...

    Interesting info about Freda being courted again in 1965 (and the deal fell through). It makes me wonder whether Barbara McNair was sort of “second choice” after Freda? I can see that they both had...
