    I don't believe that Motown had an option on taking the Brandy/Diana duet off of Every Day Is A New Day. I believe it was Brandy's record company that refused to let the song be placed on Diana's...

    I have a few of the symphonic recordings that have been done using the vocals of the artists - Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, etc. I always think I'll get a sweeping orchestral background on the...

    I believe this is a re-release of this recording from 2009:

    I really like this version, though the rap in the middle could be better. I'm glad they went with You Keep Me Hanging On for the Walk The Line album. I think she sounds great.

    It was mentioned in other threads a while back that the Greatest Hits packages were reconfigured and retitled or branded so that they would be placed on the shelves of stores as a new release. I...

    The great thing about the Mike Douglas Show is that he always spent time with the guests. I always loved that he would have someone as a guest host for the whole week. This clip shows just how much...

    If they are looking for someone to play Marvin, I would suggest John Clarence Stewart from Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist & Luke Cage. He's only 32 so if it takes them another 10 years he should still...

    Chuck Jackson Rarities

    Just found this as I was scrolling through Amazon. Didn't know it was being released - evidently last month - only as an MP3 download! Were these previously avaiable on the Motown end of the year...

    Jim, I don't think i realized until you wrote this that none of the Motown acts ever appeared on The Carol Burnett Show. I wonder why that was....

    I have to admit that Silk Electric is not one of my favorite Diana albums. I applaud her veering into a more rock area but it was not really what I wanted to hear from her. Also, I don't think the...

    Certainly, What's Going On and the albums that followed cemented Marvin's artistry, but I have such a fondness for all the early tracks. His Super Hits album has always been one of my absolute...

    This is not the story Lamont tells in his book. He says that they wrote the songs for The Marvelettes who didn't think it fit them. Wanting to make sure they didn't get stuck for the recording costs...

    I can't say that I think any of the Bones Howe songs would have worked as a single. They sound better when the 5th Dimension & Barbra Streisand sang them. Diana did a nice job on them but they didn't...

    it occured to me, knowing that a producer who had a hit with an act got to have first dibs on the next single, that this was done so These Things might possibly be the follow-up to Someday. I'm glad...

    Baby, Now That I Found You & Build Me Up Buttercup are the only two songs I am really familiar with here. Build Me Up brings back great memories - when my parents took us out for dinner at the diner,...

    I don't think there is a bad track on Surrender. All The Befores is genius track, the vocal melding perfectly with the setting of the song. I always love when Diana does this type of song...

    For me, I think Chameleon might edge this out by just a fraction of an inch.

    I found the part about negotiations for both of the movies being done about Ms. Franklin rather puzzling. I can't imagine that the movies were filmed without a contract with the estate in place. That...

    I really enjoyed ROSS. I played it quite a bit and still go back to it. There is a lot to love on that CD. The Gary Katz produced tracks are my favorites.

    I think the stories about this recording say more about Michael Masser than they do about Diana Ross. He is the one who had something in his head that he wanted on tape and couldn't relay that to the...

    Although not technically called "Songbook", we have had full album recordings by Michael McDonald & Phil Collins. I'd like to see someone like Kelly Clarkson dip into it. I like the idea above of...

    I don't find the Supremes New Ways version of Come Together dismal at all. They were obviously going for a very specific vibe on that song and it totally works for me. I also love Diana's version,...

    At first I thought I misread the article but it does appear that he is the only one who is up in arms over it. Jennifer is hand picked, and the estate gave the okay, so I can only assume they read a...
