    Maybe Taylor's inability to get what he thought was a "fair deal" from Wingate is what gave him the idea to start his own production company (Solid Hitbound Productions)(leasing product to Mercury,...

    15703
    I live in the past and don't care about much that happened after 1965. I agree that Jamerson was the best, and far, far, far above McCartney. But, I can't think of an athlete I'd put above...

    I like "Helpless" better, but both songs are good. Barry Kay's Kay-Ko Records 1002 was "Two Time Loser", by The Darlings, an African American Girls Group. It sold a lot better than The...

    According to Roz and Annette, their group couldn't come up with a name, so Mickey Stevenson gave them the name, "Vandellas".

    Motown also used The Love-Tones as their main male background singing group from 1961-early 1964. They backed up Mary Wells on several of her songs, and Marv Johnson, and Linda Griner, and...

    What is Roz's and Annette's story of how the name was chosen? Martha's story sounds reasonable. Did they say the two of them each came up with one element of the 2 part name (Van and Della)?...

    Gloria Williamson had two leads, which were released on Mel-O-dy 103, as The Vels in 1962. I don't think that the group called themselves that. I guess they still called themselves, "The Del...

    Did Al Green, Little Richard, and Duane Eddy actually record for Motown, or did motown just require old masters of their recordings?

    Oars are very expensive these days, 2nd highest after hockey sticks. I played hockey in Manitoba through Midget, into Junior A. If I were to go that far today, I'd have had to sell drugs to...

    Addresses before they started street numbers were "directions" quoted about where the house, building or tent was in relations to large boulders, trees, wells, or other landmarks.
