    Mine is somewhere in the 800s. I went ahead and ordered because I’m positive it will sell out immediately. It also appears that it’ll only highlight PIR LPs, which I hope it’s not the case, since...

    It took a while but the DeBarge interview is back up. And in hindsight, Don’s comments about Bunny were definitely uncalled for, especially now that we know about her...

    Would this be Berry’s brother and last remaining sibling or his nephew?

    No offense, but I thought he was already dead. Nevertheless, RIP Al and thank you for the music.

    I agree! This should have been a Quiet Storm staple on radio. That and “I Could Never Stop Loving You” were hidden gems from the Atlantic era.

    Probably not! But it would have been cool if they segued into it following “I Wish It Would Rain”.

    Just saw the news. Thanks for your contributions to the sound of southern soul. I know Aretha is welcoming you into her heavenly backing band.

    50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye getting creative freedom, but it’s the 60th anniversary of his signing with Motown.

    They were comparable to the J5 when they first came out, but they were more like the Temptations when they got older. They even had internal conflicts similar to the ones the tempts had.

    They’re more on par with the Four Tops, who were also quite pigeon toed.

    I think BTS is more comparable to the Beatles than the are the Tempts. But that’s just my opinion.
  12. I agree! I’ve always said that while the...

    I agree! I’ve always said that while the Temptations are the superior group, NE had the better movie.

    “Since I Lost My Baby” which was actually written after Claudette had one of her miscarriages. So while the Temptations were singing about losing a woman, Smokey was writing about losing his unborn...

    Another “what if” scenario. Paul is just asked to stop performing with the Tempts, but is allowed to continue appearing on the recordings. Richard also joins the group, but only for concerts, tv...

    After Dennis joined the group, Paul began to get more leads with the vocal tag team formula Norman Whitfield employed. He even sang lead on live performances of “My Girl”. I’m sure the added...

    Today is officially the anniversary of when Thomasina Montgomery BKA Tammi Terrell got her wings. But the great music that she left us will live forever.

    CP Spencer was supposed to have cut an LP entitled “Goin’ For Myself” scheduled for Motown. It and the single “Still Holding On” was ultimately shelved. Looking forward to hearing it via MU 72-73....

    I find it odd that they would perform that instead of another selection from the “Here To Tempt You” LP. Especially one of the cuts with then new guy Louis Price.

    I would include DeBarge, who had virtually the same lineup until they left Motown. Though they were initially a quartet, with youngest member James joining for the second album.

    While I agree that Ann Bogan should have gotten more leads, that wasn’t an option for “the Return...” album. It was initially produced as a solo album for Wanda Young. But the powers that be thought...

    I think they would have found two girls to accompany Wanda on the road. Ann had joined the New Birth by then and I doubt Kat would have returned otherwise.

    No she did not. You’re thinking of eldest brother Bobby, who didn’t officially join the group until after they left Motown. Bobby, who IMO was the best singer in the clan, and second eldest brother...

    Thank you for the music and the stories. It’s always sad to lose an icon, but to go without warning is the worst [[regardless of who it is).

    I actually was near tears the first time I heard this song on the “Forever More” box set. The story hit home to me personally. And yes, Kat and Ann are assisted by the Andantes on the chorus and they...
