    "Who You Gonna Run To" is a great argument on the side of it's the singer, not the song. In the hands of Mickey McCullers, it's a pleasant, if not memorable song. In the clutches of Paul Williams...
  2. With Ivy Jo Hunter and Mickey Stevenson...

    With Ivy Jo Hunter and Mickey Stevenson producing, I definitely could hear The Contours doing an excellent cover of this. But ONLY with Billy Gordon singing lead.

    Billy had the right kind of...

    Paul. Listen very carefully to the drums on the stereo version. I always thought there was something a bit muddy going on there. Turns out they doubled up on the drums, at least the snare.

    That...

    I totally missed this one until I heard it on Chicago DJ Richard Pugee's overnight Saturday dusties show. It grabbed me immediately. The first thing that struck me was how much Motown was...

    This is just the kind of contextual observation I was hoping for. I knew about the releases between "Mickey" and "Jerk" but I was of the feeling that none really ignited the charts.

    The...

    Ahhhhh yes! One of the best showcases ever for sheer Motown Nirvana!

    That was really great of him. Shows he was very equitable and willing to share the glory. Also very practical in that he was trying to pave the way for the guys to continue with or without him.

    Hey Marv, I had just replied to blackguy69 about this book. I didn't get too far with it and in fact threw it out. There was almost an air of desperation for attention in the writing style of this...

    oh no. I actually bought that temptations book and it was the first time I ever threw a recently purchased book into the garbage. Not throwing shade, but it just seemed kinda like Tony was going...
  11. Really great video, great post!

    Really great video, great post!
  12. Ok, now that's interesting!

    Ok, now that's interesting!

    The Jerk seemed to be one of the most popular dances of the 60's outside of The Twist. I definitely remember that anytime we were at a gathering and someone put on a 60s song, all us teenagers would...
  14. I have to wonder if this was one of those times...

    I have to wonder if this was one of those times where, since HDH had the hit with "Mickey", they were pretty much assigned to do the entire album as well. Also, you'll notice this was another one of...

    Now that's a thought! Oddly enough, I NEVER would have guessed that Smokey, Bobby and Pete wrote this, lol!
  16. Hey, this sounds good! Actually sounds like a...

    Hey, this sounds good! Actually sounds like a version you would have heard on Stax records.
  17. I heard the song my senior year of high school in...

    I heard the song my senior year of high school in the 80's on a super local (so local you could only hear it about one town away!) station that played really deep cuts. I called the station to ask...
  18. Really! Aha, I knew I was hearing the...

    Really! Aha, I knew I was hearing the similarities there in the two songs. So it seems that "Come On Do the Jerk" was one of those songs specifically designed to go backwards a few singles and use...
  19. Yes. I remember finding out that these records...

    Yes. I remember finding out that these records had been singles and being surprised. So, as a kid, I'm learning about Motown about a decade after these songs and I knew of "Mickey" but I had never...
  20. That's the shame of it all, this is a really good...

    That's the shame of it all, this is a really good record. GW put out some good stuff, but you don't get the sense that these were mammoth hits or that they had a strong national impact. Even if you...
  21. Actually that's a good point about Gordy's...

    Actually that's a good point about Gordy's purchasing giving him more studio capability. Now that makes a lot more sense to me as being the reason for purchasing GW.
  22. Was that the book on the Temptations?

    Was that the book on the Temptations?
  23. I've never really understood that Berry would be...

    I've never really understood that Berry would be so afraid of Golden World/Ric Tic. I'm sure I'm sticking my neck out on the chopping block, but I've just never heard what made Berry feel there was...

  25. Mickey's Monkey: The Song That Just Wouldn't Die

    Last night I was listening to The Miracles' "Come On Do The Jerk" and it occurred to me, it was a pretty darn good record. Then I thought I had recalled how this record's success may have been...
