    An amazing production, especially for such an early Motown recording. It had none of the oddball antics that marred many of Motown's early sixties music. I was very surprised something this beautiful...

    It's a strange song that is strangely enjoyable for me. Can't explain it really. Ollie9 calls it hypnotic and actually, that puts a name to what attracts me to it. It's got the same pulse and...
  3. Now this is really nice. Why did other countries...

    Now this is really nice. Why did other countries produce better covers than in the U.S.? Not always, but a pretty hefty chunk of them were improvements on the U.S. versions.
  4. Ok you raise a point that has bothered me...

    Ok you raise a point that has bothered me increasingly as I discover more and more of these amazing photo sessions Motown seemed to constantly commission. There are tons of amazing color studio...

    19345619346 I think I like this cover more than the U.S. original. I put this on my waitlist at Discogs.

    I believe the "mountain high/valley low" theme originated with gospel music and spirituals. I'll leave it to others smarter than me to verify that.

    If you're 11 years old and hearing "Lovelight"...

    If you're 11 years old and hearing "Lovelight" and "Run" and scratching your head at why a very old-sounding record came after "Lovelight", maybe that says something. Even more so because I heard...

    It can be very awkward though when referencing [[the) Four Tops in conversation or print if you don't put a "the" in front. You can't go around saying "Oh I'm a big fan of Four Tops!" "Do you like...
  9. Wow, that's all really interesting. Definitely...

    Wow, that's all really interesting. Definitely sheds some understanding about the competition theme.
  10. I love this point of comparison, citing the...

    I love this point of comparison, citing the Marvelettes. They were a third priority behind The Supremes and Martha & The Vandellas and still, because Motown was so good at marketing, The Marvelettes...
  11. Golden World-Ric Tic, Wingate has been discussed...

    Golden World-Ric Tic, Wingate has been discussed before, I recall. In fact, I had a lot of curiosity myself about the company when I discovered they existed. Initially, I thought they had some good...
  12. "I'm Living In Shame." I thought it was a...

    "I'm Living In Shame." I thought it was a brilliant song, melodrama and all. It still touches a chord because I know the storyline is quite plausible. Here in the States there was a generation of...
  13. You are really "bringing it home" with this...

    You are really "bringing it home" with this thread, Calvin. I don't know if you're a history buff, educator, writer or all of the above but I'm learning very much here. This thread has taken a very...
  14. You would be an EXCELLENT journalist. For real. I...

    You would be an EXCELLENT journalist. For real. I didn't know about Lord Elgin, The Elgin Marbles or even the town in Scotland. So I wonder if the States "imported" the name and we've been saying it...

    "Ain't It A Sad Thing," Sotosound? Wait. Didn't R. Dean Taylor sing that?
  16. I believe this has been going on for decades, but...

    I believe this has been going on for decades, but it's been a gradual thing. The advent of texting seemed to greatly erode people's ability to spell, use the right word or even master basic syntax....
  17. All of which to say, there IS a correct...

    All of which to say, there IS a correct pronunciation for Elgins, be it the city, the watch maker or the group.
  18. I just realized I repeated a lot of what you said...

    I just realized I repeated a lot of what you said about the watch company. At any rate, the fact of being named after the watch company alone would dictate the correct pronunciation. It's not an...
  19. It's been brought up a lot of times here and from...

    It's been brought up a lot of times here and from what I understand, it boils down to this: in the U.S. we have a city, a suburb of Chicago, named Elgin- pronounced EL-Jin. I live about an hour away...
  20. At first, I felt the same way. I like the older...

    Um what happened there? "It's The Same Old Song" sounded like a rush job in every sense. The production sounds like a cut-rate, budget LP track recorded in one quick take. The sax solo sounds as if...
  21. Wow! Yours is a particularly interesting response...

    Wow! Yours is a particularly interesting response because the first part is a great take on the sound of the song while that last part juzt had me howling in unexpected laughter!
  22. After replying to others here, I did start...

    After replying to others here, I did start thinking it was definitely a way to drive traffic to his channel and now I think you just confirmed it. So, I can see the strategy there. It really is all...
  23. It was bone chilling when I first heard it as a...

    It was bone chilling when I first heard it as a 15 year old. It was odd and astonishingly plodding, sounding like a funeral dirge. The rest of the album played but I could not get that dratted thing...
  24. You know, I'm getting it though. If you want to...

    You know, I'm getting it though. If you want to get those views up, you gotta drive traffic to your channel. How? The shrewd figure out the key words that show up in search engines. "Motown" is pure...

    Don't mind me splanky- and my apologies for the sniping. I used to get crabby at my sci- fi friends who would get VERY snippy if you misused any of the sci-fi terms or confused this show with that...
