  1. The album releases of Martha & The Vandellas was...

    The album releases of Martha & The Vandellas was as odd as The Marvelettes. Both groups seemed to have hit spells where albums weren't released as one would have thought. Always puzzled me why...
  2. "1-2-3", "My Sweet Lord". I couldn't hear THAT...

    "1-2-3", "My Sweet Lord". I couldn't hear THAT much that suggested either was copied years ago, and I still can't today.

    On the other hand, "I Can't Satisfy" by The Impressions...THAT was a...
  3. OK. Same thing happened to me just now. The video...

    OK. Same thing happened to me just now. The video starts somewhere in the middle. NEVER seen that happen with a video.

    I couldn't watch the whole thing. Bonnie is just too DA.N grating,...

    The book is called "Chicago Soul" by Robert Pruter. It's an incredible, well-written book. I'm not even a fan of Chicago soul, but I bought it because I always wondered why nobody seems to be able to...
  5. Before it gets lost amongst the sales figures and...

    Before it gets lost amongst the sales figures and such, what I'd really like to know is did Motown lose money on non-charting or low-charting albums in the 60's. Or did Motown not really get to...
  6. That's VERY interesting!

    That's VERY interesting!
  7. Jobeterob, I'm reading a book on Chicago soul...

    Jobeterob, I'm reading a book on Chicago soul music and record companies. It deals with the Chicago music scene mainly from the 60s to the early 80's. Your post is yet another detail that...
  8. Edwin Starr's "Soul Master" and "25 Miles" are...

    Edwin Starr's "Soul Master" and "25 Miles" are nearly interchangalbe. Not that it's a bad thing! I love the songs on both albums!
  9. I have not bought the book yet, so I know this is...

    I have not bought the book yet, so I know this is premature, but some of the comments so far struck a chord with me about some of these books. I've bought quite a few books on Motown and the thing...
  10. Motown Album Sales

    Woodward posted some fantastic links to pages detailing Motown/Gordy/Tamla 45s and albums. One thing I found interesting was to see that so many albums either didn't chart or charted fairly low. I've...
  11. Supremes A Go Go "Shake Me, Wake Me"

    When I first bought this album I hated this LA-recorded version. It just sounded so stilted and pale compared to the Detroit-recorded Four Tops' original. But it's so funny how something you hate so...
  12. OK, that makes sense. There must have been some...

    OK, that makes sense. There must have been some specific reason. And yeah, "I Want A Guy"???
  13. That does make sense. I recall reading in the...

    That does make sense. I recall reading in the Peter Benjaminson book on Mary Wells about the Low Rider culture really embracing some of the early 60s R&B music. And also, it seems a lot of people...
  14. Well! I just knew there was something about that...

    Well! I just knew there was something about that picture! It's a pretty good job but the eye will usually tell you something is not quite right.
  15. I'm amazed at just how much recording she did at...

    I'm amazed at just how much recording she did at Motown. She and Brenda Holloway must hold some kind of record for the number of songs they recorded. The wild thing is, there was hardly a bad tune to...
  16. What a joy to see this major network, TCM,...

    What a joy to see this major network, TCM, recognizing Motown in this way. TCM has such a wide-ranging and dedicated film audience and I'm sure it will help a more general audience to see Motown in...

    Wow! This site is really jumpin' lately! LOTS of fantastic links and discoveries. Thank you for sharing this.
  18. Question: I'm noticing some of the Miracles early...

    Question: I'm noticing some of the Miracles early 45s seemed to have had a second release years later "Shop Around" is shown on the "Globes" Tamla label with a date of 1965, then again on the "New...
  19. Such huge thanks for sharing these links! There...

    Such huge thanks for sharing these links! There is another site, I think it's called "Both Sides Now" that does something similar, but this site is much more fun to look through! I'm bookmarking...
  20. I thought I read it somewhere, but it may have...

    I thought I read it somewhere, but it may have just been someone's personal opinion, but I agree; the orange background with blue lettering can do a number on the eyes. The green background with...
  21. Thank you for your perspective on this and giving...

    Thank you for your perspective on this and giving it context by relating it to the Jazz recording field. I love Dave Brubeck (my gateway to jazz) and am espcially fascinated by the Blue Note records...
  22. I hadn't thought of it in that way but you're...

    I hadn't thought of it in that way but you're "Doggone Right". I think nearly any record company would have loved to have even a fraction of Motown's "cast offs". Consider all the acts that Motown...
  23. Motown Unreleased- A Question for Y'all

    This week, I've been revisiting the Cellarful of Motown CDs and honestly, if I live to be 100, I'll never get over the staggering amount of unreleased material Motown had. Not just the amount, but...

    What's more is Berry's unmatched scope of vision to understand the need for experts in marketing. Your songs can be the most amazing in the universe, but it makes no difference if nobody hears it....

    Many thanks for this information! I'll check it out for sure!
