  1. Marvin Gaye's "Baby Don't You Do It"

    Marvin Gaye's "Baby Don't You Do It"
  2. Hi Gary. Now that is super interesting that the...

    Hi Gary. Now that is super interesting that the station played pretty much all the hits except of "Keep" and "Danger". Yet others here have commented that there were stations in NY that did play...
  3. Ohhhhh Weeeeeeee Baby! Wanda is TEARING that...

    Ohhhhh Weeeeeeee Baby! Wanda is TEARING that song up one side and down the other. I love her "freeform" way with this song. When Wanda was feeling a song, I love how she seems to sing however and...
  4. When I heard "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers" I...

    When I heard "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers" I honestly thought this was the song that linked The Marvelettes to "Where Did Our Love Go" Not that it sounded like "Where", but it was that...
  5. I've wondered about that lack of an album for...

    I've wondered about that lack of an album for some years and I think Motown felt there was little percentage in drafting an album without a strong single to propel sales. "He's A Good Guy", "You're...
  6. This is what I call a "Bulldozer" song. Just what...

    This is what I call a "Bulldozer" song. Just what you described. A song that more or less repeats the same musical pattern with no deviations, no turns. Like a bulldozer, it just keeps rolling along,...

    "The Stranger" really threw me for a loop when I heard it! I love the rawness of soulfulness of it. Ivy Hunter really did some fantastic work with the group. I think he was always trying to do...

    It puzzles me too why that one would have been left in the can while stuff like "He's A Good Guy" and "As Long As I Know He's Mine" were released. I like both songs, but they only make it because of...
  9. Not a single thing I disagree with, especially...

    Not a single thing I disagree with, especially about the "Return" album. I bought it and was eager to hear what Smokey would do, thinking about "Magician" and "Hunter". I wasn't knocked out at all....
  10. What may help you appreciate that very critical...

    What may help you appreciate that very critical "night and day" difference in sound is to keep in mind the Marvelettes were very, VERY much an amateur group at the beginning. There was absolutely no...
  11. I thought Motown blew a potential hit when the...

    I thought Motown blew a potential hit when the Spinners originally did this. I didn't know The Supremes also did this. Sounds VERY good! The middle break here reminds me of break in the middle of "Up...

    naughty, Naughty, NAUGHTY!
    (Geeze how long has it been since anyone has heard anyone say that!)
  13. Oh, that's priceless! I love that about your...

    Oh, that's priceless! I love that about your Uncle Bill! See, this is where I get jealous. You got to see the group live! I'll bet they put on an amazing show. That clip of them performing "Bill"...
  14. I still remember the day I bought the "Where"...

    I still remember the day I bought the "Where" album and got it home. Couldn't stop staring at the cover, especially Flo. I TORE UP THIS SONG! I still love this song. Maybe it wasn't the right song at...
  15. I love these recollections of these two songs by...

    I love these recollections of these two songs by all of you! Nice to hear that you even recall the stations that were playing these songs.

    I always contend that the Marvelettes career at Motown...

    I can DEFINITELY relate. I was born in '66 so for the most part, I think you and I had pretty much the same experiences. I have VERY distinct memories of lots of Motown being played at our house. I...
  17. The first time I heard The Supremes really...

    The first time I heard The Supremes really harmonize was when I hear the singing some of those standards. I was blown away to say the least. Listening to a great deal of their hit recordings, you'd...
  18. Coming from Etta James, that is like high praise!...

    Coming from Etta James, that is like high praise! If she felt they were capable of doing more soulful material, that's like WOW! Really nice to hear her praising their voices.
  19. Thanks Marv for that insight on peoples' feelings...

    Thanks Marv for that insight on peoples' feelings about these Motown records at the time. I've heard some old WKNR radio broadcasts and it's nice to know they supported Motown so much. Did you...
  20. That's so great to hear! I remember reading one...

    That's so great to hear! I remember reading one on of the older threads here that there were areas where the Marvelettes were really strong- maybe D.C. was one of those spots I read about.
  21. Your recollections are really interesting to me...

    Your recollections are really interesting to me because you mentioned buying the Greatest Hits LP in 1966. So even though the group may not have had some of their latest tunes on Top 40 where you...
  22. Hi Nabob. I love reading your memories about...

    Hi Nabob. I love reading your memories about "I'll Keep Holding On." I think this song is why I have some hearing loss in one ear- and I'm not joking! I heard this on the Anthology album and I...
  23. Thanks Motown Eddie. This is exactly what I'm...

    Thanks Motown Eddie. This is exactly what I'm looking for. You were there on the scene, so to speak, and hearing from people who were there when these songs first came out gives a certain kind of...
  24. For those who were around "Back In The Day": The Marvelettes- "I'll Keep Holding On"

    On the Soulful Detroit Forum I had asked for opinions from members who were record buyers/radio listeners when Major Lance's "Too Hot To Hold" was first released. Another couple of songs I've always...

    "I Promise To Wait My Love" is one of those songs that I really WANT to like but just can't. When you listen to it, it has a lot going for it to be sure, but when I first heard it on the purple...
