    I love this set. I think all the 6 albums are really great examples of just how versatile Jr. Walker & the All Stars were. I really like his covers of the non-Motown material, such as "My Love" and...

    I agree "Floy Joy" is the most cohesive Terrell-led Supremes album, but to me it's so cohesive that it's just dull. So many of the songs seem almost like rewrites of each other. I have a hard time...

    @reese, now I do remember the Sam and Dave version of "I Take" is the one I remember. I'll have to seek out the Five DuTones "Feather" and see if that's the one I've heard also. I think it probably...

    David Ritz is a great writer and really captures his subjects well. I found "Divided Soul" fascinating and felt I understood Marvin much more after reading it. I agree the Ritz co-writer credit...
  6. "Shake a Tail Feather" and "I Take What I Want"...

    "Shake a Tail Feather" and "I Take What I Want" are familiar tunes...did they have the original versions of these? I thought "Tail Feather" was more from the earlier part of the 60s, by someone like...

    Yes, that's correct. Katherine and Ann do appear on one track, I believe, "Uptown," which also appeared in a slightly different mix on the last true Marvelettes LP "In Full Bloom." "That's How...

    Wanda is holding the infant on the cover of "The Season for Miracles," which I think came out not long after "Return of the Marvelettes," but who notices the baby when Wanda is absolutely gorgeous in...

    Mystery solved, I guess! Can't believe the horses were fake...they sure look real on the album. Thanks Reese.

    Well if he was the producer of the album he would have to know what the final art looked like and I would think heíd be somewhat involved with it, though of course at Motown you canít be sure how...

    That has been a rumor for quite a while, but in the liner notes for the Marvelettes deliver the singles box set, Smokey said he didnít know who the girls were. Of course Smokey wouldíve known them if...

    Isn't it strange that no one could really sing a Bacharach & David song badly, yet you only remember Dionne and one or two others who were really the master interpreters of their songs. Yet it would...

    The original was actually "Message to Martha," wasn't it, though I never heard that until a few years ago. It has a different feel when sung by a man. Still a moving and effective lyric.

    You know, you make some good arguments, but it's sad to think that Mary had so little artistic integrity that she resorted to this, especially considering how vocal a critic she has become about...

    I never noticed that Wanda did the chorus on "Keep Off." I'm going to listen to it again. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Yes, @Waiting, what a beautiful critique.

    It is amazing how much alike Gladys and Wanda could sound. Their voices kind of "met in the middle." Wanda could go much higher, even falsetto, and...

    @RanRan79, I think your position is very informed and insightful. I have a little experience with domestic violence situations because of the work I do. It is absolutely true that some women fake...

    @thanxal, thanks for that. Is your system one of the original quad systems from the 70s? What kind of system do you have? Can they even be bought today?

    Without an actual Quadraphonic stereo system, I don't think the differences can really be discerned, can they? The old Quad systems used to come with 4 speakers, kind of like a home theater...

    I actually like the C&W album a lot, and I think it holds up much better than say, the Bit of Liverpool album. But I agree that "Banjo" is a pretty silly song. I also agree the banjo player is...

    @carlo, Thanks for the comment. Then it sounds like it's as Marv had indicated, that early on the pressings were done in the US. Interesting that they all had the Tamla labels as you say.

    And in one of her books, Mary captions a photo of her in her blonde wig days saying something like "I must have seen too many Doris Day movies!"

    I liked many of her movies especially the comedies...
