    That's a good one, as well. Probably all of the songs on Side One of the TMITM album could have been singles.

    But there was too much product being released in 1973. Before the year was out,...

    I can't believe it has really been 40 years.

    This album sort of caught me by surprise. I knew she was recording with Nile and Bernard but I didn't know that the album was out until she mentioned...

    Maybe a West Coast club like the Cocoanut Grove at the Ambassador Hotel might have worked. But it seems like Berry knew to get into the nightclub circuit, he had to go through Jules Podell and then...

    I WILL SURVIVE was a missed opportunity. With its great video, the performances on THE TONIGHT SHOW and THE SUPERBOWL, plus it being used as the end theme in the film IN AND OUT, Motown should have...

    I love them both but I might give the edge to TMH simply because it had more of pop/r&B contemporary sound compared to the adult/MOR sound of FBTP. In a sense, TMH combined the best of WORKIN'...

    Smokey could have been right about the tv show but definitely wrong about the year.

    Often acts are probably the worst when it comes to facts about their own careers. For example, on her 1977 tv...

    I think that photo was actually taken backstage at SHINDIG! in Hollywood in February 1965. I've seen other photos of the girls that seem to be taken at the same time, one of them has them with the...

    I'm sure if she really wanted to do that or any song that required extra musicians, she could have a great arrangement made that didn't need those instruments or have the additional instruments...

    I wondered why Mary looked like she was ready to fight in the casual shot. Nice to find out the fellow was a boxer.

    I think this is just a case of Motown not having to print two different album covers to indicate stereo or mono. Atlantic used to do the same but they would have stereo indication at the top of their...

    One big difference is their LIVE! album.

    Except for I'M READY FOR LOVE, Side One is a completely different performance depending on whether you're listening to mono or stereo.

    I read that there was supposed to be a special called "The Marveleous World of Marvin Gaye" (or something like that) and it was to be sponsored by Kodak. The sponsorship seems to suggest the idea...

    I think if she had stayed with Motown and there wasn't a need to release IT'S MY TURN, they might have pulled at least one more single from "diana" in the US, as it was selling so well.
