    I checked out the new Spinners' CD. I didn't order it, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good it is. I found myself pleasantly attracted to several of the tracks, my favorite being "Cliche".

    WOW! I just discovered this new CD of remixed Al Green tracks. I've always been a sucker for strings.
    I've gotta say, these new string passages are gorgeous! And, thankfully, they seem to have...

    Almost forgot one of my very favorites -- the late, great VAN McCOY-- ALL albums from Buddah through Avco through MCA labels.

    How about Diana's "Now That There's You" from her first solo album? Or, better yet, Diana's solo version of "When You Tell Me That You Love Me" from her "Force Behind The Power" CD.

    Congrats to your daughter, Rovereab! The first Motown song that comes to mind is Marvin & Tammi's "Sad Wedding", although I wouldn't recommend it! Ha! How about Marvin & Tammi's "You're All I Need...

    You're right, Carlo. I was looking at the hard-cover version. All I saw was the great big $45.99 glaring at me which caused me to panic and run the other way! The soft-cover version is a much more...

    I hear you, Boogie -- loud and clear, and I can appreciate each and every word you say. Such undertakings regarding that which we love are good for the soul. Whether people respond favorably or...

    For me, R&B and Soul Music's downfall was the 1980s, for sure. Instrumentation went from full, soulful orchestras with strings and real instruments [[i.e., Love Unlimited Orchestra and MFSB) to...

    Thanks for the good news, Milven. I was all set to place my pre-order for Freda's book on Amazon until I saw the un-Godly price of $45.99. [[I nearly gave myself whiplash from the double-take!) ...

    Yeah, 144man, I know. 1958-1962. It's just that leaving out Eddie's three best 1963-64 Motown tracks seems such a shame. I agree with Roger [[above) that the 56-track ACE version containing ALL of...

    HaHa! Well, there ya have it! Inhaling spindle hole, "Hi[[gh)" Records, "feeling good". You've hit that proverbial nail right on the head! HaHa!

    Naive me, Boogie. All these years, I thought that HI Records' new blue-fingers logo was signing the "Okay" sign [[like Cindy Birdsong signed with the accompanying wink in that 60's Supremes photo of...

    Boogie, gotta admit the horns are very similar-sounding. Before you pointed it out, the connection had never occurred to me.

    Al Green's "The Belle Album" was his first album NOT produced by Willie Mitchell. I bought it at the time, but, like others, found it lackluster and boring. It was yet another lesson in how...

    The Jasmine set leaves out my two favorite Eddie Holland tracks -- "Just Ain't Enough Love" and "Candy To Me" -- both singles from 1964, as well as "Leaving Here" from 1963.

    Losing America's "Greatest Living Poet" would be sad, indeed. When it comes to Motown, Smokey is like family to me -- right up there with Berry & Diana.
