    I can't believe we have no live recordings of the Marvelettes from this era! I would love to have heard Wanda live after her voice came into its own. (Some of her screeching on the Gladys era live...

    It was the greatest album...just a revelation to finally see something from the vaults on LP. For me, I think it was the first time I ever found an album like that. I'm sure Motown released some...

    I totally agree with you that "Mary, Scherrie and Susaye" was an excellent LP and seems to have been even more underrated over the years and dismissed as a disco effort and nothing more. I think it...

    It wasn't on "From the Vaults," from what I recall though. I think it first appeared on one of the UK compilations, perhaps "Cellarful of Motown." My recollection is that "Knock on My Door" or "I...

    I think you are spot on. To me, the album is pleasant but somehow lacks any 'X factor'. It's almost instantly forgettable when it's over. It reminds me a little of the Marvelettes' "In Full...

    It's not an original idea, but "The Supremes Sing Smokey" might have worked.

    That was the story line I was referring to, but I couldn't remember the actor's name who played the villain.

    The story arc with Jerry Lewis as a garment industry exec was also excellent. There...

    Of course, "Berserk" was a lot more fun and a classic compared to Crawford's last film - "Trog!"

    @sup_fan, it's very possible it might have had the Supremes' version in the original commercial. Sometimes the licensing for such usage runs out and the seller can't use the same soundtrack they...

    @RanRan79, I'm with you on this...gotta be an old troll under a new name.

    The level of nastiness leveled at this thread - which has an absolutely legitimate purpose and place here - has to really...

    @monicarivers, I knew your moniker was somehow familiar and the other day they were showing that Godawful (though a camp classic) film "Berserk" and now I know where you got it!

    This sounds the same to me as the one on the Stereo Version of "16 Big Hits Vol. 2," though I think it has a longer fade with an additional lyric couplet at the very end.

    @mysterysinger, great...

    Here's the two different versions of "I'll Have to Let Him Go."

    It seems like it was mainly an economic decision. Even though they would still need Diane in the studio recording the leads, the producers saved time and money by having the backgrounds ready to go,...

    @BritishTony, Yes I remember that was the album I also played before going out for the evening. "Wild Night" especially was a great cut and I too wish it had been the first single. I think Richard...

    A great song in Ann Peebles' typically understated style, more like Stax rather than the Motown sound. It's one of those songs I remember hearing for the first time, because I was driving home on...

    In "Dream Girl," Mary says that she was about to embark on a much-needed vacation when Gordy insisted she cancel it and be available to record "Love Child." According to Mary, she felt she needed...

    It is such a great album. One of the great mysteries is why it wasn't more popular. Richard Perry was a great producer who was also responsible for Diana Ross' "Baby It's Me" LP and many other fine...

    Thanks gman.

    I agree "All I Need is Time" is a great performance. A real "tour de force" as they say...almost like she's acting a role or playing in a musical. It always reminded of the same...

    Quite a story! Takes a while to get through it, but well worth it. So this all must've been just before Deke broke out as a member of The Corporation, I guess?

    @blackguy that poster must be one of the old folks lurking anew with a new identity. How could they have it in for Marv so much already?

    I think that Gladys voice is so classic and so warm that she makes almost any song sound like a standard. Even several of her originals such as 的 feel a song or 哲either one of us and even some...
