    Some singers aren't as fond as others of their songs being covered at all. But I imagine that most artists would be annoyed by any other artist covering their current single, and that would extend to...

    I said the same thing in a previous thread about the song. There was too much energy put into it. If the story about Ross needing loosening up and being provided liquor to do so prior to recording...

    What Aretha did was "theft" with a whole other meaning. "Respect" was already synonymous with Otis. He had a top 10 and top 40 hit with it almost two years before Ree's version was released. When she...

    I think the use of the word "stole" is unnecessarily inflammatory for the case of "Love Hangover". What happened in the 50s to folks like Little Richard is probably the best case for the use of the...

    Really Sans? I thought we was cool. Why would you show my budget this? I'm ready to go into debt looking through this shit. Thanks a lot good buddy.*said with all the sarcasm and sneer I can muster*

    While I much prefer EIE to DR70, I'd be good if it ended up vaulted, and the follow up album had been Surrender. I think Surrender would've done better released when "Remember Me" had peaked and then...

    If those figures are correct Midnight, that's an excellent point.

    I always thought she was trying to cover up for Cindy's different vocal ability. They did achieve a really nice blend in the studio and sometimes live. The Farewell album is not one of those examples...

    That was a separate incident. That supposedly took place after Dreamgirl had been out for a couple years. Personally, I think Diana should've sent someone out to pull Mary aside and tell her that...

    That's from "Call Her Miss Ross". It's interesting that for someone who is supposedly so disinterested in Diana Ross that you can quote a passage from a book about her. Marv either you're a closet...

    You keep trying to paint this picture of a big, tough Mary Wilson. How come you're the only person who has ever seen this side of Mary? Well, you and Brenda Holloway.

    Mary does write that she had close friends before meeting Flo or Diana. It's interesting because you basically hit on something that I once opined in a thread a couple years ago. Friendships at that...

    Admittedly, because I'm such a huge Jean fan, I couldn't care less who's singing backup when she's singing lead. Just a personal opinion.

    Not too many artist had the know how or the financial capability to undertake such a task during that time. I wish wherever she landed that the person(s) in charge took great care to handle Jean...

    That stuff wasn't taking off in America because it sucked. I do think Ian's heart was in the right place. Unfortunately he took these incredibly talented folks, most of whom Motown never bothered to...

    Oh good, we're back to disagreeing.:cool:

    I think Mary and Lynda as backing were the exciting shot in the arm that the Supremes sound needed. For my taste, it gets no better than Flo and Mary....

    I forgot about David's suit! Duh! Yeah, that didn't do him any favors nor endear him to the top spots at Motown. However, I think David was allowed to hang around all those years because, as I said...

    Keep in mind that when the album was released, "Reach Out" was the only single. It was another month before "Mountain" was released and still a couple months before it hit #1. I wonder how much of...

    Ha! Yeah, blame Motown.:p

    Okay, I have to come back for a producer session of Sunshine/Cream. Don't have the time at the moment.
