    Was never crazy about the two Vancouvers' tracks you mentioned, but I like Chris' "Soul Sounds" LP version of "Got To Get You Into My Life". Since she was performing live in the U.K., I guess she...

    Relegated to a B-side! That's really surprising, Jerry. It should have been saved for an A-side single. In fact, if I had heard this record on the radio back in 1971, I would have sworn it was a...

    Interesting, 144man. Funny, the Motown grapevine never revealed any kind of merger between Chris Clark and Bobby Taylor with The Vancouvers. Apparently, it didn't last long because Bobby Taylor...

    Wow, Jerry, that's beautiful! I had never heard that before.

    Oops! Must have been reading an older post, thinking it was current. (Those pesky senior moments!) Well, I still hope you had a good one!

    Belated Happy Birthday, Marv! Hope it was a good one!

    Happy Birthday, Denise! You sure made some great records in your day like "Man-Size Job", "Now Run And Tell That", and "Married But Not To Each Other". Sweet soul music at its finest!
  8. Great Kim performance. Great record! Should...

    Great Kim performance. Great record! Should have been released. Motown had a wealth of top-notch material sitting in the vaults. I think they just got bigger than they could handle. So many...

    Pretty song -- typical Dean & Weatherspoon. I just love those guys! They write the sweetest melodies.
  10. You know, Marv, in all these years (other than...

    You know, Marv, in all these years (other than the Motortown Revue Vol. 2 album in which Kim Weston introduces The Andantes live on stage with her before performing "Just Loving You"), I've never...
  11. Ah, now THAT's exactly what I wanted to know!...

    Ah, now THAT's exactly what I wanted to know! Funny that we never heard about any of the association with Chris Clark and Johnny Bristol over the years. It's interesting to learn that Bobby...
  12. Yeah, I figured they had split up, Marv, and I...

    Yeah, I figured they had split up, Marv, and I knew Tommy Chong had gone the comedy route with Cheech Marin. I was just hoping for some specifics as to why they left and Bobby Taylor stayed, i.e.,...
  13. I like Bobby Taylor & The Vacouvers, and I love...

    I like Bobby Taylor & The Vacouvers, and I love Bobby Taylor's "Taylor-Made Soul" solo album, but I remember being shocked at the time to see Bobby going solo so soon after only one group LP. To...
  14. I've always liked The Four Tops' "Loving You Is...

    I've always liked The Four Tops' "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever", but I've gotta say I much prefer the previously-unreleased version with strings. Motown was hotter than Hades in 1966. The public...

    Chances are good that Martha's steaks will be tender and juicy. But if they should over-cook, they'll taste like a "Shoe-Leather Expressway"! 😎

    We all know that Martha made some of Motown's best records, but the question is -- can she cook? I guess we'll just have to "Leave It In The Hands Of Love"!
  17. You know, Boogie, we can't discuss Meco, Tony...

    You know, Boogie, we can't discuss Meco, Tony Bongiovi, and Harold Wheeler without mentioning their wonderful Marlena Shaw album, "Take A Bite"! With tracks like "Love Dancin' ", "I Thank You,", and...
  18. Stu, I couldn't have said it any better myself,...

    Stu, I couldn't have said it any better myself, Sir. Each and every point you just made in this post is, spot-on, the gospel truth.
    Motown maintained the highest of musical standards and, lucky...

    I, too, never liked the live version of "Love Child". The tempo is always taken at breakneck speed. It's a wonder that Diana, Mary, or Cindy could ever keep up vocally at that horrendous pace.
  20. Once again, we agree, John! I don't like that...

    Once again, we agree, John! I don't like that Showdown song at all. Doesn't sound at all like Meco. And, you're right again, I like Andrea True's "More, More, More" album much better than that...
  21. Hey John! "Matching ears"! Yeah, that sounds...

    Hey John! "Matching ears"! Yeah, that sounds about right! We seem to have matching taste in just about everything.

    Showdown! I bought their LP back in the day. They're tracks are also present...
  22. You know what, John? I knew that title sounded...

    You know what, John? I knew that title sounded familiar. I used to own the 12" Single of Simon Said's "You Got The Power" but my copy was on the orange and black Roulette label. As usual, I bought...
  23. No, John, I didn't mention Ava Cherry; although...

    No, John, I didn't mention Ava Cherry; although Vivian Cherry is one of Meco's back-up girls. (Sisters, I'm wondering?)

    You know, I think you may have stumbled onto something. Despite the...
  24. Nope! You dreamt it!

    Nope! You dreamt it!
  25. Thanks, John. "Disco Baby", of course! How could...

    Thanks, John. "Disco Baby", of course! How could I forget that? I don't recall there ever being any fallout about James Brown stealing songwriter's credit for Van's composition. In fact, come to...
