  1. Sorry, Boogie. I didn't see your Wiki post until...

    Sorry, Boogie. I didn't see your Wiki post until now. I don't know... it's been said that Wiki can be edited and revised by pretty much anyone. Since learning that, I've learned to take Wiki with...
  2. Boogie, once again, where did you come up with...

    Boogie, once again, where did you come up with the notion that it took 3 years to complete the "Diana & Marvin" LP project? I've never read nor heard of such a thing.

    Yeah, Ollie, Russ' Berry Gordy immitation was a hoot, although I've never thought that Berry's voice sounded at all feminine. If Diana resented Marvin, I'm sure it was only temporary at that one...
  4. Good point, Boogie. I think that's Larry Payton...

    Good point, Boogie. I think that's Larry Payton on Four Tops' lead vocal. Without Levi's familiar baritone, and The Supremes not getting a solo spot until the end of the track, I would have never...

    You bet, lucky! Diana sounded sexy as all get-out on The Supremes' & The Tempts' "Try It Baby" from The Supremes Join The Temptations album, which is a dotted-eighth's shuffle beat, as is...

    Where did you hear that the album took 3 years to complete, Boogie? Thinking that I might have missed something, I went back and listened to that part of the video. Again, I didn't hear Ralph nor...

    Thanks, Boogie! I know! HaHa!!! I had forgotten about that part! It's even funnier than I remembered!!!
  8. Your "oohs" are right on, Ollie! Diana's "Ooh,...

    Your "oohs" are right on, Ollie! Diana's "Ooh, nothin's changed" is indeed from "Just Say, Just Say", not from "You Are Everything". Like they say, I was in the "right church, wrong pew!" I don't...
  9. I agree with nearly everything you say, Lucky. ...

    I agree with nearly everything you say, Lucky. The only issue I have is that the album needs an uptempo track to replace "Don't Knock My Love" [[which, IMO, was way too fast). "I've Come To Love...

    I've always loved most of Side 1 of the "Diana & Marvin" duet LP -- especially "You Are Everything". The part where Diana sings, "Ooh, nothin's changed" gets me every time! I agree with Ollie -- it...

    I've never heard Martha's "You'll Feel The Magic In Me" before. Not bad; in fact, I like it!

    I agree with you, Michael. I much prefer Marvin's '60s Motown material over his '70s self-produced albums [[although I do love his "What's Going On" album). I also prefer Stevie's 60s output over...

    I'm sorry that I can't answer your question...

    I'm sorry that I can't answer your question regarding a 1972 Originals' UK tour, mem1320, but I attended an Originals college performance at SUNYGeneseo, NY, in the early '70s. Actually, we went to...

    Well, Al, I've gotta admit you've certainly sweetened the pot -- especially when considering the fact that 8-Track tapes would interrupt the middle of a song to change tracks! Decisions, decisions! ...

    Me, too, thanxal! I don't know about an 8-Track version, but I'll sure take a CD release!

    I've loved the DRATS "Funny Girl" album from the first time I played it, and I love it even more today. Diana's voice matured greatly with this recording, and her phrasing was absolutely top-notch. ...

    My copy of the "Love Factory" book arrived a few days ago. I started reading in the middle of the book covering HDH's Invictus/Hot Wax years. As expected, it's a very interesting read. I'm now in...

    That vocal performance was stunning! However, it's a shame that The Pips were dressed like Robin Hood, and their choreography routine was horrible. It didn't go with this song at all. "If I Were...

    Gary, I would say they used Martha & The Vandellas' "Dance Party" LP because Motown is timeless. And that LP has some of Motown's hottest dance tracks -- "Dancing In The Street", "Wild One",...

    And, also, Motown4Ever, can't forget that "A Lovers Concerto", also from the "I Hear A Symphony" album, is taken from Bach's "Minuet In G Major". HDH truly were in a Classical mind-set.

    Ditto, Boogie! Your enthusiasm freshly sparks my enthusiasm for it, too! Like you, when I first bought the LP, I couldn't stop playing it for myself as well as for others. And others who heard it...

    Now, Boogie, let's play nice with my buddy Kenny!

    God, I love Meco's "A Disco Symphony"! Even after all these years, I still love it more and more every time I hear it!

    I would have to say that my favorite solo effort by former members of The Temptations would be David Ruffin's three Van McCoy-produced albums --"Who I Am", "Everything's Coming Up Love", and "In My...

    You're welcome, Motown4Ever. Glad to hear that your Uber customers enjoyed it! I agree, "I Hear A Symphony" and "Remove This Doubt" are indeed classical-sounding/symphony-ish. I would also add...

    You're right, Motown4ever -- "Mickey's Monkey" and "I've Gotta Dance...." were indeed HDH productions, too. I had forgotten to include those. BTW, you say you're a Berlioz fan? Me, too! I love...
