    I say that Jean Terrell could've sang both The Supremes' "You're My Driving Wheel" & "He's My Man" (as well as their other mid/late '70s songs) and made them her own if she had stayed with the group...

    While The Supremes' "Take Me Where You Go" is a pleasant song, I don't think that it would've been a hit for them (just as others on this thread have already said). However, I do think that "Take...

    I say that Motown should've reissued both "Ich-I-Bon #1" & "Mis-Beat" in the early '60s when surf music instrumentals were riding high on the charts. Both songs predate (and sound good alongside)...

    It was hard to find anyone in the entertainment business from the '50s & '60s who didn't smoke. It wasn't until the '70s that it was general knowledge that smoking was bad for your health. And the...

    So sorry to hear about Manu Dibango. I'll always remember his classic "Soul Makossa". The song was so hot when it first came out in spring 1973 (in the US) that there was an inferior cover version...

    One thing about that; while he had the vocal chops for that, it's often been mentioned in interviews that Jimmy Ruffin didn't have the ability to do The Temptations tightly choreographed dance steps...

    I never considered that before because that scene is so powerful thanks to Christian Payton's performance as Paul Williams. And as others have pointed out, people usually did not create "mob...
