    Jean, Mary and Cindy on the Ed Sullivan show doing the medley "Nothing Can Stop Us Now/ If They Could See Me Now.” Fantastic!

    It seems to me that whichever version I listen to, I find the backing singers sounding anonymous and murky; a lost opportunity to have made this a very good recording.

    Even though it is not a photograph, the album cover of “High Energy” has always been a favorite of mine and exudes everything the Supremes were.

    Ashford & Simpson question

    If this question has been asked before I apologize for being redundant.

    Are there Motown recordings in the can of A&S singing any of the Marvin & Tammi duets? Demos perhaps? If so, might they...

    Wanda and Floy Joy would have been a terrific idea!

    I wonder how Martha and the Vandellas would have done on “Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart?” It’s got the power and drive of “Heat Wave” and “Quicksand."

    Thank you Paul!

    I’ve always thought that this recording must have been done in L.A. where Wilson and the producers were based, rather than Detroit. The track doesn’t sound like the Funk Brothers to me. Does anyone...

    Sometimes a B-side can turn into an A-side. Case in point: Mary Wells’ “You Lost The Sweetest Boy” was the A-side which entered the Billboard chart on 9/28/63 and spent nine weeks on, peaking at...

    While “7 Rooms” made it #10 on Billboard R&B and #14 on Billboard Pop, “I’ll Turn” hit #50 and #76 respectively. “I’ll Turn” should have been released as an A-side.

    This was a big R&B hit in ’66 (Billboard #2) and a moderate Pop hit (Billboard #45). The percussion is a throwback to Sam Cooke’s “Chain Gang."
