    Thanks for sharing that article Woodward. I didn't know that Nolan Strong & The Diablos were being considered by Motown (and why they turned that deal down) prior to reading that piece.
  2. Happy 81st Birthday to Eddie Holland

    Wishing Eddie Holland a Happy 81st Birthday (and Many More)!

    It's sad but it's the right call to delay the Aretha bio-pic Respect since so many movie theaters are closed due to COVID-19.

    Good question PNH. My choice for favorite Pointer Sisters ballad is "Freedom" from 1985's Contact.

    The only way Motown was going to get more sales by releasing more albums by The Supremes & The Four Tops was if those albums had generated major hits. Only The Magnificent Seven had a hit single...

    I Do! I Love the Music that HDH produced at their own labels after they left Motown. As others have said, they had a distinctive sound and Great Songs that fit early '70s Soul to a tee. However, I...

    Two more things: I would've called The Supremes' 2nd LP of the '70s Stoned Love instead of New Ways But Love Stays. And I would've released it a few months after (or a few months before) The...

    "If I were B.G."; I would've only made one album (not three) with The Supremes & The Four Tops. Also, wouldn't have released The Supremes Produced and Arranged by Jimmy Webb album nor "I Guess I'll...

    Diana's statement could be taken in a number of ways: her Response to the Black Lives Matter Movement, her response to the Pandemic or encouraging people to Vote in the upcoming election.

    Yes, those "Still Waters" between Aretha Franklin & The Four Tops indeed run deep. On a related note, I remember seeing the clip of Aretha & The Tops performing "I Believe In You And Me" in concert...

    That's wonderful news & I look forward to hearing the latest from The Four Tops when it comes out. Thanks Jaybs for the news.

    I say that The Four Tops' "Still Water (Love/Peace)" definitely influenced Aretha Franklin's classic remake of "Bridge Over Troubled Water". The Tops' record came out a few months before Aretha's...

    I just heard about Spencer Davis. I'll always remember The Spencer Davis Group for their hits "Gimme Some Lovin'" & "I'm A Man" and for introducing the music world to Steve Winwood. RIP.

    Wow! Thanks for sharing this interview with Chaka Khan. I can understand why she doesn't have any interest in singing with Women right now but here's a Woman that she did a background vocal for...

    I'd like to to see books about Edwin Starr, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, The Velvelettes & Kim Weston (just to add to the names already mentioned).
  17. Good question! It's never been fully described...

    Good question! It's never been fully described but to me Wilson's "higher love" concept means songs that encourage the listener to funny develop a love of the self and a love for all of mankind. I...

    Yes indeed; Motown Records would indeed do multiple versions of a song until they got it right. Even after the song had already been released. Examples: the 2 remakes of The Miracles' "Shop...

    Good one PNH! The Presidents' "5-10-15-20 (25-30 Years Of Love)" is Early '70s Soft Soul at it's best. And Marvin Gaye recorded a version of the song that was unreleased until The Marvin Gaye...

    Another example of a multi-part song that had different feels from each of the parts is Stevie Wonder's "Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)" from Music Of My Mind. The first half of the 8...

    Here's a Motown Song that had four different versions; "Whisper You Love Me Boy"-
    Recorded by Mary Wells, The Supremes, The Lewis Sisters & Chris Clark.

    Forgot about this one earlier; The Jackson 5's "I Am Love". This song from 1974's Dancing Machine (and an edited 2-part single) begins with a slow & meditative groove and brakes out into an up-tempo...

    Good point! I had forgotten about Little Stevie's first single, "I Call It Pretty Music" from 1962. Parts 1 & 2 were different treatments of the same song.

    While I haven't read any comments from Frank Wilson or Smokey Robinson about the making of "Still Water (Love)"/"Still Water (Peace)", I'm going to take a guess and say that the song was similar to...

    Stevie Wonder has kept a relatively low profile over the last decade, but that quiet period which follows a health scare seems to be ending. On Tuesday, the 70-year-old legend announced the...
