    "Darling Baby", the B-side of "Put Yourself In My Place", was a much bigger hit in the U.S., going all the way to Number 4 on the Billboard R&B chart. As a result, "Darling Baby" ended up being the...

    RIP, Roy C. Hammond.

    I did not become aware of the stuff he recorded for Mercury Records during the period 1973 to 1978 until twenty years after the fact, but I grew to love it once I heard it. ...

    Pat St. John paid tribute to Edna Wright on his Sirius XM show today. Because he's on the 60s channel, he couldn't play Honey Cone's biggest hits from the 70s, but he did play "While You're Out...

    I like the fact that "James Brown Collected" contains James' 1985 hit record, "Living in America." There are many James Brown collections out there, including the "Star Time" box set, that do not...

    You're right, Robb, the upcoming Barbara Lewis set would have been been better (and more complete) if it included her Enterprise recordings. I'm assuming they were not included because of licensing...

    "Out of Sight" was a bigger hit than probably 75% of the songs included on "James Brown Collected". Personally, I think that there were many other songs that were better candidates to omit for lack...

    I find it curious that "Out of Sight" from 1964 is nowhere to be found on this 3-CD collection. That was a big hit for James that crossed over to the pop top 40. The record also signaled that James...

    Actually, Barbara Lewis did not go directly from Atlantic to Reprise. In between those two labels she had three singles and one LP for the Enterprise label, which was a subsidiary label of Stax. It...

    It's from Stevie's 1967 "I Was Made to Love Her" album, which contains mostly cover versions. Besides the Tempts, Stevie covers Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Bobby Bland, James Brown, Otis...

    "Since I've Lost You"--great lead vocal from Dennis Edwards. Not only my favorite Tempts B-side, but my favorite post-David Ruffin track by the Tempts.

    This song was originally a jump blues written and recorded by B.B. King in 1953. B.B.'s version featured a prominent horn section. The Four Tops' version has a very ingenious arrangement which...

    The full title of Shorty's Ace Records CD is "Here Comes Shorty Long. . .The Complete Motown Stereo Masters". Apparently, "Call On Me" was never mixed to stereo and that's why it wasn't included. ...

    No Sam Cooke? No Jackie Wilson? No Otis Redding? Puh-leeze! That is truly one of the most bogus lists I have ever seen!

    I wouldn't give Ike Turner too much credit for writing "Rocket 88." It's a pretty blatant rip-off of Jimmy Liggins' "Cadillac Boogie" that was released several years earlier.
