    I think the proper title would be Levi Stubbs and the Andantes. There's no Vandellas on this with the exception of Martha's lead vocal at the end.

    HDH's departure caused a lasting damage to Motown that they never recovered from. It's true Motown had five singles in the top 10 in late 1968, but that doesn't mean the company ever regained what...

    Jukebox musicals never do well at the Tony's. People love them because they recognize the songs, but most of these shows lack creativity and a solid book. The Tony's like originality and shows of...

    “You’re Gonna Come To Me” was recorded, I believe, 5 times. Four versions have been released, one version is still unreleased.

    “Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart” was recorded three times. The...

    I doubt there will be any new information in this and it will have a Gordy narrative slant to it so it won’t be totally factual and will gloss over any negativity regarding Gordy, Ross, Robinson,...

    Scherrie Payne was once told from people inside Motown that the label pressed DJs to stop playing “Walking” and push “Love Hangover” instead. Whether that was Motown not wanting the Supremes to get a...

    It should be noted that High Energy charted on Billboard's Top 200 LP chart at #42 and on the R&B chart at #24. This was their second highest charting album in the 70s behind Right On in 1970. It...

    High Energy is one of my favorite albums by the ladies. Certainly the best album of the Scherrie Payne years and up there with Right On and New Ways. I know a lot of people love The Supremes, but I...

    You’ve got this all wrong. He hated Mary’s work ethic? Where did he ever say that or is that just your personal assessment? I gather it’s the latter.

    She wasn’t allowed to sing lead when Jean was...

    In the same interview Dennis said he was signed to Motown with the plan as being a replacement for a Contour or a Temptation which ever came first. It’s rather interesting that in 1966, Motown had...

    Really? The public wouldn't like it and would prefer to see Mary in blonde wig and gold gown? Please.

    About 9 years ago, I saw Dennis Edwards do an interview about his career and he discussed...

    I didn't realize the addition of two women singing a song they performed every night in the live show since 1966 would cause that much disruption. There was no political undertones in any of this. It...

    I agree. I love this live version. I love watching the string section during this number and the Temptations take it home with that choreography.

    These releases don’t cost an arm and a leg to do. Universal isn’t losing money on a Supremes reissue. And if it’s not a priority to them then why are they withholding from third party labels to...

    Barbara Acklin's version of "You've Been In Love Too Long" is better than the Vandellas original.

    I never bought Motown’s reasoning that it was cheaper to fly in the lead vocalist rather than the whole group. Like what Reese had said, the guys were more likely to cause a stink and protest if they...

    Before the Originals came to Motown in 1966, the Spinners were used quite a lot as the prominent male background vocal group between 1964 and 1966.
