    Sorry Boogiedown, but that was indeed pretty much the reality of the industry in those times. Coincidentally, a friend of mine sent me this video today. Here is an interview from 1983, where David...

    Thank you, Guy, for understanding my point.

    Not to take away from Phyllis, but I also love Jully Black. Outside of Seven Day Fool, she has a great song called Running, from several years ago. It's...

    I noticed that they accidentally showed a photo of Jennifer Lewis at one point, during Jennifer Holliday's Unsung episode. Wrong Jennifer. smh.

    The sad truth is that the music industry at large has generally always put more value on artists who are male and white. Phyllis was fortunate to release the body of work that she has, but does it...

    That's a solid and very true assessment, Boogiedown. The industry was especially tough on women, and even tougher on black women. As someone who was equally known for being extremely beautiful and...

    I will be remembering Phyllis today by playing her music. I recommend for everyone to check out her Unsung doc, as well as Jason A. Michael's book, "Strength of a Woman: The Phyllis Hyman Story".

    Thank you Roberta for sharing the rest of that article. Safe to say that most of us here are glad that she made a full recovery. We celebrate her and the fact that she is happy and that she continues...

    I remember watching and taping this special when it aired. I watched it with my parents on Mother's Day and my Mom cried, hearing the touching song that Rhonda lovingly wrote and sang for her mother....

    Just finished watching this. Thanks for sharing. She's had a very sad life full of struggles, but at least it ended on a happy note. I remember when Jennifer Hudson won her Golden Globe and Jennifer...

    Thanks for sharing! I haven't seen this and intend to watch :)

    Agreed! Shipping costs have gotten out of hand. I remember in the early 2000's, it was common for the shipping cost of one CD to be $5 or less, to/from anywhere in the world. Not anymore!
  13. Right?! Especially for a CD, I mean c'mon!

    Right?! Especially for a CD, I mean c'mon!

    This seller originally wanted $30 just for the shipping alone to Canada, as they claimed too many Canadian customers' orders were being lost, so they would only mail via an expensive expedited...

    I enjoyed this clip and had not seen it before. Thank you for mentioning that the Carol Burnett Show is on Amazon Prime, as I had no idea. I just logged on and was very happy to see that the complete...

    sansradio, thank you for the tip! I've seen this compilation online in the past but haven't gotten around to getting it. I shall do that asap! :)

    The first red album had come out quite a few years ago on the BBR reissue label (part of Cherry Red), and I think they had planned to release the purple one eventually. However, the label seemed to...

    It was interesting reading some quotes from Bonnie this week in Anita's new book. She discussed the initial idea behind the two albums she did with Motown. She wanted her albums to go beyond being...

    I do love the Greatest Hits Vol. 2 release, just based on the cover alone. Sandra Tilley was especially servin' it up! Stunning. However, the 2 CD Gold set is a nice collection.

    I've always loved Mary's live cover of "Coming Out of the Dark". I think she sounded great whenever she sang this song, including here in this video.

    Thanks for sharing this duet. I love Phyllis and have all of her albums, but have also not heard this duet before.
  22. Mary Wells' Easy Touch LP (1982) available digitally

    Perhaps this was already discussed here some years back...but this one totally flew under the radar for me. Mary Wells' Easy Touch album from '82 is available on digital/streaming platforms,...

    Thanks mysterysinger. Interesting but extremely doubtful that their release was sourced from the original masters. Too bad the shipping is over $30 for a single cd. Outrageous. I have at least one of...

    Thanks! Can't wait to watch this one tomorrow on the tv :)

    During the last couple of days, I've been spinning Bonnie's albums in remembrance of her. I played the purple album today and it prompted a question from my partner regarding why did Motown decide to...
