    I agree about "The Happening". While I would've apparently been wrong about it, I would've vetoed releasing "The Happening" as a single. I just don't hear the appeal outside of the great intro. But...

    At first I thought that the date has to be wrong because I've never seen Flo wear that style so late in the game. Plus her face is much more slimmer here than it was in 1967. But then I noticed the...

    Marv give it a rest. You have a negative chip on your shoulder about a singer you've probably never met, because she didn't support Michael Jackson? Never mind the fact that he apparently didn't feel...

    Loved it when I first heard it, but I've since cooled off of it in recent years. Half the time when I'm listening to the album I skip this song. It's nice but it doesn't do for me what it once did.

    I can hear a twinge of C&W, but I hear more of the California influence. I can't wait to hear the unreleased Funk Bros version. I wonder if my ears will hear a bigger hit or will I hold the opinion...

    You and me both Floy. It's the one negative criticism I have of the song. (While I generally criticize the Sam Cooke album for not utilizing the Funk Bros, "Good News" is one of the tracks that the...

    I'm inclined to agree about "O Holy Night". I have yet to hear a version of the song that wows me like Flo's.

    Flo was definitely her own singer. She had a style that was popular but she also had a voice that I think had she recorded more leads, people would instantly know that's Flo. Even her background...

    I wouldn't say far superior, but Flo's songs would've made the Christmas album even more classic. I still haven't heard Mary's lead on "The Christmas Song" but everyone raved about it. I'm not...

    Right! There's so much stuff he posts that I had no idea about. How he finds all this stuff, I don't know, but I hope he keeps it up.

    Yeah, and there's no reason why Diana couldn't have been doing equally excellent work. She was so concerned with competing with the likes of Madonna and whatever new girl was on the block, while her...

    That makes sense. It's like that sometimes. Glad they didn't end on a negative.

    Lisa aint nobody but Florence. But all three definitely got more of their mom in their face than their father.

    How anyone thought this song was going all the way boggles my mind. I love the song. It would've made an excellent album track or even b side that might have gotten some airplay. But the ride the...

    I always said Flo would've been a great fit for "Mr. Big Stuff". What a pity that after Flo was dropped from ABC she chose to focus on fighting Motown (which she should have fought) and didn't put...

    Particularly if they gave her the uptempo, big band type of stuff. While I was wowed by "People" when it was released on the box set back in 2000, as the years pass I'm less and less impressed with...

    Yes, "O Holy Night" was another fine vocal moment for Florence. I keep both of her versions of it in constant rotation when the Christmas season starts up.

    I'll go with 82 Ollie since in my mind the duet would occur after Marvin has left Motown and Ross has released her RCA debut. I think a reworked version of "Muscles" would've been perfect. Maybe...

    Perhaps, but that can't be used as evidence of those RCA songs being deemed of less quality than her Motown songs. Those songs have been in her act since leaving RCA. When's the last time she did...
