    I bought a copy. I like the pic - it's artsy and eye-catching.

    I seem to recall that it was an oversized publication so it really stood out on the newsstand. I wonder what decades of storage in...

    Just happened to find this clip of Shirley Ellis and The Supremes on youtube. It's from the Hullabaloo broadcast of January 1965. I haven't see it since that night. It was the first time I saw The...

    Perfectly stated, Carlo.

    This is a song celebrating personal empowerment. This is how this song was received in 1980. I don't recall any controversy or confusion.

    Of course, those of us in...

    Not sure I ever noticed this before or if I did I never gave it much thought.

    I think it's probably Florence's arm or dress. If they weren't posed that way and it's an edited photo then it's...

    I got the book when it was released, probably through Amazon. Not sure I ever saw it in a book or music retail store. As I recall there was very little on his Motown years. However, I thoroughly...

    I thought the same thing about 1-2-3 as influencing AAG's inclusion on MH. However, I checked my Billboard books and noticed MH first charted at the end of August and 1-2-3 didn't hit the Hot 100...

    Two albums and three singles that didn't need to be released. The Love Child album was so good that, in hindsight, any song from LC could have been released as a single and charted as well as, or...

    I'm not aware of issues with the Always In My Heart copyright. In any case not sure it would have been a good fit for either the WDOLG or MH albums.

    It's WDOLG for me, always has been, it was my first Supremes and Motown album. I love all the songs except - Ask Any Girl! (I know, go figure.) It has taken me decades to appreciate this song but...

    Not as good as the originals but could have been moderate hits by DRATS:

    Actually, there was a way to have records repeat. Many record players and stereos, unlike today's turntables, had a long spindle. This allowed records to be stacked (maybe up to 6, in some cases)...

    I have both books. It's been a few months since I've read them but here are my initial thoughts. I will have to reread them both to see if I have the same or different reactions to each.

    That certainly would have been an interesting release primarily for the fact that it included "I Can't Dance..." which never appeared on a MR&TV album or hits collection until the CD era.
