    I guess that's just your opinion regarding the lack of full effort placed into the recordings of the "A Go Go" album which I feel demonstrates lots of effort by the session musicians at Motown/LA and...

    Thanks for the alert and the reminder of the banned left parenthesis. I am even 'forbidden' from accessing it to delete it. Lesson learned!

    Hey, I would have to respectfully disagree that those selections are in 3/4 time [[waltz) time but are in 12/8 time [[possibly even 6/8) in which there is basic feeling of 4 beats with 3 quick...

    "The Composer" is actually one of my favorite DRATS singles. But then again, my tastes are somewhat not like most people [[ex."Ask Any Girl which seems to be a fan favorite is my least favorite on...

    Another forum member, WaitingWatchingLookingForaChance, posted a thread regarding the lovely Carolyn Crawford song, "Lover Boy" which is in 3/4 time [[commonly referred to as 'waltz' time). That...

    I was not familiar with this treasure which is indeed a superb recording. The drawback to this particular song is that it is in 3/4 time [[waltz) time which is a rarity in most popular music. Being...

    I agree regarding "My World is Empty Without You" mostly because of the way it was usually delivered during the live performances...it sounded like a party song rather than an interpretation of the...

    I never liked the Hits medley. Although I sort of understand the reasoning, I felt the songs were rushed as if they were thinking, "Let's hurry up and get this over with so we can get back to...

    I'm bending the rules somewhat; however, wasn't Cindy Birdsong mentioned by Bernice on an episode of Designing Women?

    I'll have to respectfully disagree. Is the purpose for a cover of another artist's work to produce something to excel the original artist's output? There are so many artists and their recordings...

    Thank you for sharing this. Turkessa comes across as a sweet young lady.

    Regarding Diana appearing to be disinterested and not her usual 'in your face' performance of No Matter What Sign You Are, I would attribute this to being that she is more animated and 'alive' when...

    I recall, back in the day, this was my first album I ever had of the Supremes. It was the mono [[remember they were a dollar less than the stereo version). I absolutely loved "Baby, I Need Your...

    Ah, yes! The perfume scent...this was even referred to back in 1967 when they appeared on What's My Line as Tony Randall began his questioning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyera7VYxLw&t=180s

    Great song indeed! Just from my observations, the production is much grittier than many of the other songs on the album, and places Diana's voice much more upfront and devoid of much special vocal...

    Thanks, Reese. Your examples indicate that it actually was't uncommon for this to occur. With the Four Tops "Running Away", I was guessing it was because maybe it was recorded too late for the...

    Singles Not on ‘Regular’ Albums

    As I was listening to the Four Tops “You Keep Running Away,” I was reminded that this is a single that was not on a regular album. By ‘regular’ I mean an album that usually showcased a group or...

    Does "The Composer" also fit that category of singles that, to my knowledge, were not performed live?

    Ah, "It's My Turn" is indeed a powerful production, musically and lyrically. I've always had a special place in my heart the words. At my retirement event several years ago, I made a few closing...

    "Never Say I Don't Love You"

    I don't mean to take the thunder away from the YouTube "Diana Ross Fan Club" or the FB person who posted the link on Facebook; however, I wanted to share what I believe to be a wonderful alternate...

    As several on the forum are stating, it is difficult to grasp that she's not here anymore. Mary was a fixture for both Motown fans [[even those who didn't care for DRATS) and for her Supremes family....

    Although the music score is wonderful to experience, I felt the cinematography suffered. The whole movie, visually, was dark and the coloring filters that were used made it appear cheaply made. I...

    Outstanding Tracks on "Cream of the Crop"
