    Connie Haines' version sounds like an early track by Duffy [of "Mercy" and "Rockferry" fame]. The vocal style and inflections are strikingly similar.

    Probably just one of many Motown, Soul and 60s...

    It also includes a couple of bad edits if you listen closely.

    I used to assume that many of Bobby's vocals were by Philippe.

    It's necessary to listen very carefully to tell them apart in a verse.

    Philippe had more power and a greater range than Bobby,...

    It's a great track that places the Tops in a different but very effective musical context.

    "I Don't Know Why" by Stevie Wonder from his For Once In My Life album was retitled "Don't Know Why I Love You" for single release, plus it was given a killer mono mix. :)

    'Twas the other way around.

    'Sad Tomorrows' was an early version of what eventually became "Flying High [[In The Friendly Sky)".

    When the WGO single was released, everything else was just a...

    Sadly, I think that some of the things that gave Marvin his magic are the same things that led to his premature passing.

    Make a derogatory comment and disappear?

    I'm curious. In what way is it awful?

    Also, what kinds of Marvin music do you like, and why?

    Sheesh!

    Not for me.

    I like my Motown to be Motown.

    If most of it is stripped away and replaced with a British orchestra, combined with some older British singers looking to scratch a living,...
  13. Many thanks

    I've always liked 'Touch Me In The Morning", "Good Morning Heartache" and, more recently discovered, "Stormy".

    Not a good career move. Shows that Marvin was a guy with serious issues.

    Is that the way for a lot of great artists, however?

    A personal perspective.....

    For me, Marvin’s greatest strengths are in what he did with material rather than as a songwriter per se. This is what brought him success in the 60s, and a lot of his...

    My 13 year-old granddaughter and eight year-old grandson use th-fronting because it's widely present in their peer groups, plus their father and their paternal grandmother use it.

    And we all did. :)

    Language does evolve, but I will probably never accept Vee Undispu'ed Troof, or "You're Ver First, Ver Last, My Everyfing", or "Fink" by Areefa Franklin.

    Great fred, viss!
