    I do like that the Wiki also mentions the other Miracles in the "Love Machine" wiki. It was co-written by Pete Moore. One of my pet peeves is reading over and over that Smokey wrote this song or that...

    My understanding, growing up in Detroit and reading various articles was that Motown wasn't too keen on bringing in Nolan Strong and the Diablos because Nolan had "problems" (I heard it was drinking)...

    Hypnotized is a classic because of the vocal interplay between Linda Jones and the Persuaders. The Perusaders sound super smooth, as compared to Linda's very emotional singing. The orchestration...

    I seem to recall in one of my Motown books a story on QC: A worker came to Motown from Columbia records in the late 60's. He said that in a QC meeting they listened to about 50-60 records and he...

    Hi TJ; I don't remember "Would I Love You" being played in Detroit. I do vaguely remember hearing "That's What Love is Made Of" on the radio because of the old rhyme "snakes, snails. puppy dog tails...

    This is a poorly written article, it sounds as if a middle school student who was gossiping on the corner had written it. I also don't believe Lynda would even comment in that manner, she's been in...

    I think that it's the Velvelettes, who I believe have all of their original members still in active rotation (I'm not sure if Betty Kelly was an original member or not)
