    As far as a copa album is concerned there may be some shows committed to tape. Motown made a practice of documenting such events for preservation purposes in some cases. But when it comes to studio...

    "Bless You" is a nice song and a great example of Detroit Soul. However, I don't hear any hit potential in it. Had I worked alongside QC and felt that maybe it could be something,I'd suggest B side...

    The reason he's never watched it is because seeing everything that transpired with the group will make him emotional. As he told Smokey when they discussed it one day: "Smokey, I just don't feel like...

    Yes. Great Smokey composition. I laugh like crazy when I hear this track out of nowhere due to the memory attached. I remember when Burger King used this song as a promotional tune in the late 90's...

    That's what I thought too. Unfortunately Smokey left very little on the cutting room floor. He seemed to record only the songs he was most passionate about. That's why when we get unissued Miracles...

    As far as Tommy Good is concerned I was told there were just some live tracks left. They utilized all the studio recordings including "Honey Lane" which clearly isn't mixed. Then they omitted one...

    I attempt to the best of my ability to not be so judgemental, but I agree wholeheartedly. In addition to music being the worst it's ever been,we don't realize that this is being done on purpose. The...

    Yes,it is worth acquiring. It gives the reader a closer look into what made them the legends that they are. Of course I'm not done with the book, but I've bursted out in laughter many times since I...

    Hate to be the one who goes against the grain,but I hear absolutely no hit potential in this song. As much of as a genius Smokey Robinson is,if I heard this on an album or even on the radio I...

    A QC book is a juicy idea, though I can't see it being that many pages. Motown certainly didn't want The Marvelettes to mature with their fanbase and Smokey was the only producer to see what the real...
