    Michael Jackson was probably a better younger singer, up until 1973-74. His work in the mid to late '70s to the early '80s was only a bit less than "great" but at this point he still could be an...

    That's true, that's the culture in the music business. To be honest, it sickens me when people act like it doesn't happen or it's a "rarity" yeah right. And it's supposedly a big deal to people that...

    I've got those Billy Eckstine albums on file. They are ok. I don't think it's "great" though.

    I don't think Eckstine would have been great shakes at Philadelphia International. Eckstine was past...

    I don't think Robin Thicke is more misogynist than anyone else. I think the complainers in the media are too cowardly to go after real targets in different genres so they go after Robin Thicke.

    Yep. There was maybe one really good song on that album, the rest? I won't even get into "Tippy Toes." Yeah not cool to do that do Pharrell, very foolish. To be honest though, I never did get why...

    Robin's failing. This is something. The idea that Thicke thinks being "high" in the studio is any excuse is laughable.

    I'll agree with that. I think I just didn't like the sounds and styles as much after a certain point, but I still did like R&B, but I moved more towards commercial jazz of the day. Let me know if...

    Totally agree. Solar was pretty much the epitome of R&B for a time--and then it wasn't. In a way I think they should have concentrated on pure R&B product but I guess singing w/ Elektra/Asylum had...

    A lot of whites seemed to stop listening to R&B music in the early '80s. I don't know what happened. They were the ones talking about Rick James and had their Peaches and Herb 8 track, but as soon as...
