    Missed opportunity for sure. I guess one of the "sad" "should've beens" of Aretha's career was that her 70s catalog does not include a duet album. Donny would have been perfect. Apparently Ree and...

    This sucks. "Who Do You Love", I have fond memories attached to this song. Instantly takes me back to my childhood.

    Just re-read your question Lake. Are you asking about other backing groups that worked in the same way as the Andantes, as I understood [[or misunderstood) your post? Or are you asking if the...

    I'm going to go with "no" on the Pointer Sisters and Three Degrees. Having extensively collected both of their works, I can't imagine listening to a song and not recognize their individual voices,...

    Comparing these two is unfair. Two very different artists, although in my opinion, most artists can't be compared to one another anyway, which is the point...art. As a huge fan of both, I'll take a...

    I remember buying the Bad special edition in 2001. My copy of the album had long since been lost and never replaced, so I was excited to pick this one up. Yikes! It did not age well, and that was...

    Will gladly pick this one up. I'm hopeful that the unreleased stuff contains something I don't have, as I already have a bunch of the Thriller demos. But still, to have the demos cleaned up and mixed...

    Great post! I have to disagree, though, about luck. I don't believe people make their own luck. I think all the right things have to come together to create a space where a person can succeed in the...

    I was always under the impression that Jean signed to Motown as a solo from the beginning, but in an interview she said this wasn't true. I think Jean would've been happier as a solo artist. She...

    I wonder if for Mary "falling in love" was a cover for "afraid to try something new and unproven".
  11. Blue I can't answer your question, but I have to...

    Blue I can't answer your question, but I have to say the Supremes performing the song on TV is news to me, unless I've forgotten it. Is there footage of this floating around? I always cross my...

    I agree that it's a great song. Diana's lead, coupled with the lyrics and the track make for a beautifully somber cut. Horrible fit on the album though. While there are other songs on HDH that I...
  13. Yeah. Prior to the name change, Diana was the...

    Yeah. Prior to the name change, Diana was the something extra in an exciting singing group. Once the name changed, and there was a clear plan on the table, Diana started to ramp up the extra, which...

    The song had been in the act too long at this point. I don't find the arrangement to be too particularly Vegasy until the "Quiet Nights" part, but at this point I think the group could've used some...

    I imagine there are always people who complain about any one singer's way of doing things, but it seems like this idea of "sing the song straight" with little to no deviation from a standard way of...

    GC still sounds good, as of this performance. Such a great cut.

    Right! Oh man, I can't wait for this. It's just a snippet, but if it's any indication of how the rest of the song sounds, this is going to be fire!

    Diana would've fallen on her face, and so would the other Supremes. There's a reason why Diana left when she did and not a minute before: she wasn't ready. If Gordy had thought Diana was ready for...

    I used to hate their "Up, Up and Away", but it's grown on me over the years. I'm with you on "World", which is one of the worst, most uninspired, lackluster vocal performances from the original...

    Of course we have to take online reports of record sales with a grain of salt.

    Not just Rossland, any major artist that is holding steady in the top 10 consecutively will see anything that fails...

    I'm a huge 3 Degrees fan and have remarked in the forum previously my thoughts on their lack of success here in the States. The 70s Supremes' failures have been beaten to death. I was merely pointing...

    I don't know how much more money HDH deserved, considering they had to be making an enviable sum off of the massive hits they wrote and produced, but I think it was a bit stingy of Gordy not to...

    I like "Love" also, and I love "Bah", an excellent deep cut that should be more popular. Diana's "Ode" is cool, it's listenable, but I wish she had been allowed to use her lower register. She sounds...

    I'd say this is their best performance of this song up to this point, but still nowhere near as good as the version on the Japan album. Mary was on fire for that one. This one, she has her moments,...
