    Mr. June, I may be able to help you there, or, at least, steer you in the right direction.

    I developed a love for B.J.'s music in the late '70s when I discovered his Christian music, especially "Home Where I Belong". Then I started buying his Pop albums on MCA as well. From then on, I...

    Wow! Thanks, Kenny. I couldn't have said it better myself, Buddy!
  4. Thanks for your kind post, Drew. Back in the...

    Thanks for your kind post, Drew. Back in the early 2000's, Simon Cowell had a brainstorm: wouldn't it be neat to take 4 male opera singers and put them together in a pop group. He tried it, and...

    YOU had better! Ha!

    Again, I'm sorry for having repeated Jack's earlier announcement. As I said, I was out of commission for a few months. I found out about IL DIVO's new Motown-tribute CD just last night, thinking it...

    Hey, Jack! I'm sorry to have repeated your earlier thread. I was out of commission for a few months and didn't realize that you had already announced it. I just found out about IL DIVO's new...
  9. Coming In July -- IL DIVO - "For Once In My Life" CD

    After being discovered by Simon Cowell in 2003, IL DIVO went on to sell over 30 million albums and sell out arena tours worldwide. For their 10th studio album, IL DIVO is ready to release their brand...

    Wow! I don't recall ever hearing Valerie Simpson speak before. What a sweetheart! In addition to her [[and Nick's) musical contributions to Motown, it's plain to see why she was so well liked in...

    Wish I could help you, Woodward, but I haven't heard from Cary Mansfield since way back in the late 1980s/early '90s when he was reporting for ICE [[the International CD Exchange newsletter) which...

    Excellent Velvelettes video! Wish it were a lot longer. It's amazing that, having been given the short end of the stick at Motown despite some hot releases, the girls have remained humble and...

    Gotta agree with you, Boogiedown. As much as I love The Andantes, I've never cared for their performance on this track. It's too shrill and annoying. In fact, it never occurred to me before, but I...

    One of my favorite HDH-produced Marvin Gaye tracks from the 1966 "Moods Of Marvin Gaye" LP. I especially love the string passages in the Mono mix. For some strange reason, the Stereo version...

    Reese, I've loved that song since the very first time I heard it played on our local A.M. radio station. In fact, I raced to the record store to buy it! It would have been cool if Smokey had chosen...

    If memory serves correctly, Motown had been wanting to release a newer, updated 2-CD Diana Ross "Anthology" set in the 1990s but Diana wouldn't approve it. This was around the same time that Diana...

    You're right, 144man! I checked out Lamont's "Rose" and its identical theme to "Who's Gonna Take The Blame". I hope we get to hear The Originals' version before it's too late.

    "Who's Gonna Take The Blame" has never moved me to tears, but it's a really pretty tune designed to be sad in which a young girl searching for love ends up resorting to prostitution. I just realized...

    Woodward, back in the '90s, we had a Media Play in Rochester, NY -- right down the street from where I worked. I used to go over there during my lunch break, or sometimes after work, to shop for...

    Thelma's version of "No One's Gonna Be A Fool Forever" transferred from studio recording to live performance beautifully. The orchestra backing her up was indeed impressive! As good as Thelma's...

    Fun thread, Jobucats! A few more off the top of my head are:

    Martha & The Vandellas - "I Tried" [[B-side of "I Can't Dance To That Music Your Playing")

    Stevie Wonder - "Why Don't You Lead Me...

    I've gotta agree with you, arr&bee. The Marvelettes' "You're The One" is one of my all-time favorites of theirs. And it's one of The Marvelettes' sexiest records ever! Written & Produced by...
