    Let's face it auto correct on phones is often a pain and can make fools of us all. Sometimes the "degredation" can be hilarious - Stanley Unwin was truly funny and made a living from it.

    I saw Robb's post as tongue in cheek but there is a good point to it. Social media has facilitated the degredation of the English language more than ever. I just hate when folks use the word of...

    Cover versions were a regular feature in the UK charts back then. Famously Cilla Black ran closely on the charts with The Righteous Bros with her hit version of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling". ...

    Hmm but I think Sonny opted for that Spector wierdness in his production of "Dream Baby" for Cher which has some bongo madness (a brilliant record by the way).

    Great historical notes Gary.


    Worth noting that "I Keep Forgettin' " (my favourite of The Checkmates tracks) was released as a single in the UK backed with "Do You Love Your Baby" on A&M AMS780....

    BTW I understand that Keith Hughes is poorly. Wishing you well Keith.

    The Lewis Sisters were certainly a very talented pair of songwriters and I think back up singers on some Brenda Holloway tracks. I do like their "By Some Chance" and love the sax part. All their...

    That's Valerie as it is on most of the tracks on the "Easy" album with the exception of any Tammi recorded much earlier. There is a difference in Val's interpretation and sound. Val is also partly...

    Great news and a just have to have.

    "Cream Of The Crop" is a great album for me - probably my fave DRATS album. As to the title of "Let The Sunshine In" I assume Motown were trying to ride the crest of what was popular around that time...

    The version I like best by far is the one on the first "This Is Northern Soul" CD which I do think is a little different to the one in the video in the first post. There is at least another version...

    Quiet Guy has my vote too. Spectorwise I'm also partial to The Paris Sisters ILHYLM and Ronettes Is This What I Get ..

    I love "Home Of The Brave" by Bonnie/Treasures and was happy when it was re-released on a UK Spector label years ago. I"m sure I had a single of Florence DeVore "Kiss Me Now" too. I definitely had...

    Yes I'd like a book on this subject but who would really remember such details about each of the tracks at this distance? Just as interesting for me would be how tracks were decided for each album...

    Martha & The Vandellas did of course cover "Then He Kissed Me" (and "Wait Till My Bobby Gets Home" too).

    5.99 plus free mp3 version - not bad at all. That Gold series has some interesting releases.

    Interesting that Percy Faith gets a mention there.

    Puts me in mind of a favourite of mine which seemed to generate an awful lot of interest in soul circles but folks will also deny it's a soul...

    Yeh, you're absolutely right and that's the only Crystals version I have too - I've no idea why I thought there was more than one version - perhaps I was thinking of "All Grown Up" by them but I have...

    The Crystals and The Ronettes shared at least a couple of songs - "I Wonder" and "Woman In Love (I'm A)" are examples that spring to mind. There's not much to choose between the latter but The...

    These are my mini-LPs. Not sure about re-mastering I'll have to listen again. I do know the Checkmates one (and maybe Ike & Tina) was also re-issued by Hip-o-Select so they could well be re-mastered....
