  1. I really appreciate the input from everyone on...

    I really appreciate the input from everyone on this and your statement is definitely illuminating- I didn't know there was an industry standard regarding recording speeds and such, yet I shouldn't be...
  2. Sigh. I had kinda mentally filed away the whole...

    Sigh. I had kinda mentally filed away the whole "why didn't Motown give Flo more leads" thing. After awhile, I just accepted that's the was it was. But this thread, this song, DAMN! Flo really could...
  3. I was going to say something about that...

    I was going to say something about that watermark... what in the world?

    Yeah, this is extremely fast to the point that at times it almost looks like a parody you'd see on SNL. I'm reminded too of...
  4. The more I learn about the Velvelettes, the more...

    The more I learn about the Velvelettes, the more I admire them. My feeling is the reason why they're still together is that they were always, first and foremost all about putting family first. They...
  5. More than likely, you and Paul are on target with...

    More than likely, you and Paul are on target with this being deliberate.
  6. Funny you should mention this song. For years I...

    Funny you should mention this song. For years I heard both "Can You Love A Poor Boy" and "Oh Be My Love" as "twin songs". They don't necessarily sound alike, but there is something in these two songs...
  7. Hi Paul, I was hoping you'd see this one. Funny...

    Hi Paul, I was hoping you'd see this one. Funny you mention the Stax drumming style because I made that same observation when I wrote the comments on this song for the video. I do appreciate your...
  8. Sound Engineering Question: "The Miracles Oh Be My Love"

    Hopefully, Bradburger will see this as he always seems to pick right up on what I'm going on about. From the Away We A Go-Go album, this has always been one of my favorites. There is something...
  9. I give 'em points for going with "The Hunter Gets...

    I give 'em points for going with "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game." Even among the 20 gazillion and one Motown compilations that ever have been, that's a song that never crops up.
  10. An amazing production, especially for such an...

    An amazing production, especially for such an early Motown recording. It had none of the oddball antics that marred many of Motown's early sixties music. I was very surprised something this beautiful...

    It's a strange song that is strangely enjoyable...

    It's a strange song that is strangely enjoyable for me. Can't explain it really. Ollie9 calls it hypnotic and actually, that puts a name to what attracts me to it. It's got the same pulse and...
  12. Now this is really nice. Why did other countries...

    Now this is really nice. Why did other countries produce better covers than in the U.S.? Not always, but a pretty hefty chunk of them were improvements on the U.S. versions.
  13. Ok you raise a point that has bothered me...

    Ok you raise a point that has bothered me increasingly as I discover more and more of these amazing photo sessions Motown seemed to constantly commission. There are tons of amazing color studio...

    19345619346 I think I like this cover more than the U.S. original. I put this on my waitlist at Discogs.
  15. I believe the "mountain high/valley low" theme...

    I believe the "mountain high/valley low" theme originated with gospel music and spirituals. I'll leave it to others smarter than me to verify that.

    If you're 11 years old and hearing "Lovelight"...

    If you're 11 years old and hearing "Lovelight" and "Run" and scratching your head at why a very old-sounding record came after "Lovelight", maybe that says something. Even more so because I heard...
  17. It can be very awkward though when referencing...

    It can be very awkward though when referencing [[the) Four Tops in conversation or print if you don't put a "the" in front. You can't go around saying "Oh I'm a big fan of Four Tops!" "Do you like...
  18. Wow, that's all really interesting. Definitely...

    Wow, that's all really interesting. Definitely sheds some understanding about the competition theme.
  19. I love this point of comparison, citing the...

    I love this point of comparison, citing the Marvelettes. They were a third priority behind The Supremes and Martha & The Vandellas and still, because Motown was so good at marketing, The Marvelettes...
  20. Golden World-Ric Tic, Wingate has been discussed...

    Golden World-Ric Tic, Wingate has been discussed before, I recall. In fact, I had a lot of curiosity myself about the company when I discovered they existed. Initially, I thought they had some good...
  21. "I'm Living In Shame." I thought it was a...

    "I'm Living In Shame." I thought it was a brilliant song, melodrama and all. It still touches a chord because I know the storyline is quite plausible. Here in the States there was a generation of...
  22. You are really "bringing it home" with this...

    You are really "bringing it home" with this thread, Calvin. I don't know if you're a history buff, educator, writer or all of the above but I'm learning very much here. This thread has taken a very...
  23. You would be an EXCELLENT journalist. For real. I...

    You would be an EXCELLENT journalist. For real. I didn't know about Lord Elgin, The Elgin Marbles or even the town in Scotland. So I wonder if the States "imported" the name and we've been saying it...
  24. "Ain't It A Sad Thing," Sotosound? Wait. Didn't...

    "Ain't It A Sad Thing," Sotosound? Wait. Didn't R. Dean Taylor sing that?
  25. I believe this has been going on for decades, but...

    I believe this has been going on for decades, but it's been a gradual thing. The advent of texting seemed to greatly erode people's ability to spell, use the right word or even master basic syntax....
