    Yeah, I think that's a safe bet, Stu, that "Otis wasn't their wardrobe guy!" The "stage was all stripes from end to end"....like 5 singing/dancing zebras!

    I guess I'm gettin' old, Stu. I much prefer the earlier, subdued styles! (My tastes are still stuck back in The Tempts' top-hat-and-cane look from their "Gettin' Ready" LP and the tuxes they wore...

    You and me both, Stu! The outfits pictured are some different from The Tempts' dapper stagewear that I fondly remember.

    Really? I guess I don't get out much! I've never seen him dress like that before. In the above video, all the guys standing around Otis are dressed to the nines (like The Temptations used to...

    And his huge white glasses to boot! HaHa!

    Way to go, Tempts! (It's a shame that annoying siren had to ruin Otis' special moment.) BTW, I wonder who dressed Otis for this occasion?!!!
  8. Yeah, I loved that whole "Taylor Made Soul"...

    Yeah, I loved that whole "Taylor Made Soul" album. I think I prefer Bobby's version of "Oh I've Been Blessed" over Levi's for two reasons -- Bobby's is the version I've known and loved since 1969,...

    I love this song, too. Bobby Taylor also recorded it on his "Taylor-Made Soul" album on Gordy. Strangely, the single version was released on VIP (as can be seen on the record label in the attached...

    Love the string passages and back-up vocals on this track! As always, Martha does a great job on lead vocals, as did Edwin Starr & Blinky on their "Just We Two" album. Both versions use the same...

    Luke, I was never particularly crazy about Jean Carne's "Trust Me" LP on Motown (1982). If memory serves correctly, the only tracks I really liked were both cover versions -- Martha's "My Baby Loves...

    I, too, bought the "Girl Groups: The Story Of A Sound" VHS tape as well as the
    companion book and the LP which, strangely, was on Motown. A few years back, I upgraded to the DVD of which copies...

    Your Love Is Wonderful
    I Can't Help Myself
    Something About You

    That happens, but at least it turned out okay. Better open Jr. in honor of your now-belated birthday! You'll be glad you did. He's never sounded so good!
  15. Hey Tom, did you have a happy birthday back on...

    Hey Tom, did you have a happy birthday back on May 23?

    The Marvelettes' "Pink Album" was not only the girls' best album ever, it was one of the best albums that Motown ever released. PERIOD! Its front-cover photography is also among my all-time...

    Boogie, your "Poor Man's" theory has caused me to compare more artists than I care to admit to here! To avoid offending anyone, I think it's safest if I keep the results to myself! HaHa!!!

    Yeah,...

    Thanks for sharing that, Heikki! I sure wasn't expecting to hear that. You wouldn't expect to be double-crossed and humiliated by your own record producer. It surely must have been hard for Syl to...

    A "poor man's Al Green"!!! That's funny! Now I'm gonna think of that every time I play Syl Johnson! LOL!!! I have no idea what the relationship was like between Al Green and Syl Johnson. The only...

    Bluebrock, I'm afraid I misspoke regarding the first "4" albums being Johnny Bristol productions, as the first "3" albums on the set were produced by Johnny Bristol. Jr.'s 4th album, "Peace And...

    Thanks, Reese! I love that! And Martha looked especially attractive in this performance! In her facial close-ups, I don't think I've ever seen her look prettier than she does here.

    When I Googled Mary Wells on Reprise, the two singles I listed (one produced by Rick Hall and the other by Bobby Womack), that was all that came up. Maybe Mary was recalling tracks that she recorded...
