    According to the timeline, Diana recorded LH first in 1975 but Motown initially decided it was an "album cut". Upon hearing the song themselves, 5D decided to record it and release it as a single....

    I'm sure about everyone knows this, but when it gets to the bridges, you can actually hear Marvin going, "come on baby!" and "come on Tammi!"

    I loved their partnership. You can tell they cared for...

    I think George is right. They only changed it (overseas only, I think) to ANMHE so it would distinguish from the one that had Love Hangover on it.

    That had to have been Ron Tyson, who is the second longest-serving Temptation (37 years).

    Her recording of "Betcha..." was in 1976 and she always considered herself a jazz artist so that's how this version was delivered, it's expected to sound like that. Which is why I love it (it's...

    And mind you, this was after Michael Jackson, Prince and Donna Summer had made a breakthrough on MTV. Their successes didn't quite make the case for black inclusion. In fact, when Arista signed...

    People misinterpret Phyllis' anger at the other female artists as her being mad at them. No, she was mad at Clive for not promoting her as she was. Clive wanted her to be more of a pop singer (hence...

    I know it's ironic, but Florence Ballard was born on this day and then 52 years later, another legendary, beautiful and tragic singer, Phyllis Hyman, died on that day. I know there's no connection...

    Crazy thing about this era is Mary looks-wise was ON POINT. Her face was always beat (meaning the makeup was just right), the hair was on point, the outfits, her attitude throughout it. I loved her...

    The more I read on her story, the sadder I get but also I admire her free spirited attitude. Imagine if she had lived longer... but I guess you can't tempt fate. :(

    Martha never said anything about Ivy. She only credits Marvin & Mickey. I think Ivy is too humble to accept bigger credit than some think he deserves for this. That's why teamwork is used over "who...

    Marvin, Mickey and Ivy had no idea what impact this song would lead when they wrote it. :)

    I always felt Diana could've been a better artist if Motown hadn't released album after album the way they did. They nearly worked that poor skinny girl to death! SMH

    Motown was trying too hard with Diana, I think. Instead of building on singles from the 1970 album, they moved quickly to a second album that came out in the end of the year and then another album...

    Motown was a singles label, it rarely sold many albums. Back in the '60s, the only constant album selling act there were the Supremes, but I believe of those albums:

    The Bluebelles were a girl group.
    Labelle was an all-female band.

    Therein lies the difference.
