  1. Dancing With The Stars Nielsen Ratings

    Looks like Mary got some of the best exposure she's had in years. Nielsen says Dancing With The Stars bested every other show on TV during those two hours.

    Congrats to Mary and all involved.

    I had the 8 track of the lp back in the day and yes I noticed the stereo to mono change. I still can't figure out why?

    I think it important to note a couple things here. Tammi was never told her condition was terminal, therefore I doubt that anyone at Motown understood that as well. Going into 1969 as Tammi...

    It's easy to pick out Valerie, she gives a more nasal approach in her imitation of Tammi. Ten of the twelve tracks on Easy are Valerie, only I Can't Believe You Love Me and More, More More are...

    I had the Marvelettes Sophisticated Soul white label mono lp, it was only issued to AM stations. It's not worth having. All non-single tracks simply channeled the stereo mix into mono.

    I interviewed Gladys Horton at length for the Mysteries and Scandals show I did with her. She remembered Eddie Holland playing the WDOLG track and they unanimously voted it down. Eddie wanted Wanda...

    That birth year has been published many times and is wrong. In Nov 1969 when Motown announced that Diana was leaving and Jean was joining they listed her age as 23. Now, Jean also had a birthday...

    After the success of LSTB soundtrack, the TMITM lp and single topped off by the Diana & Marvin lp and singles, Motown got a bit glib on Ross. TMITM was such a lush, exquisite lp and it holds up to...

    [QUOTE=RanRan79;529684]For me Smokey gets no better than "The Agony and the Ecstasy". I wore this out some years back.

    That gets my vote too. Another is a track off the Yes It's You Lady lp, Are...

    It was on his Where There's Smoke... lp. Smokey wanted the first single to be Cruisin' but Motown wanted his disco version of Get Ready to go out first since disco was so hot at that time. Smokey...

    The only standout on this lp for me is hearing Jean Terrell on the opening cut Something Shady. She is credited as Jean Thompson. Her voice is really audible on the first chorus.
