  1. I like it! I like it!

    I like it! I like it!
  2. O.K. Thanks for that and asking Cal about it!

    O.K. Thanks for that and asking Cal about it!

    That's what it would seem to me...or something for fan clubs...
  4. Hmmmmm. Sounds good but it would make for a...

    Hmmmmm. Sounds good but it would make for a pretty long commercial, unless it was edited into several shorter spots?
  5. The Velvelettes Ain't No Place Like Motown

    Was always curious about this. Was this ever intended for release or was this tied in with some kind of company-related event?
  6. Even the covers work here. The Monkees' "I'm A...

    Even the covers work here. The Monkees' "I'm A Believer" and "Last Train To Clarksville" as well as "Cherish", "Renee" and "Carpenter" are fun to listen to because they aren't overblown productions....

    I could easily become a hermit purely because of this blog. So many great things to read and ponder.

    One of the tunes that struck me was the Velvelettes "Let Love Live A Little Bit Longer" We...

    I just recently subscribed as well. What a great site and I love the writing style. I do appreciate Marv's directing attention to these things that otherwise may be lost in the avalanche of...
  9. I agree. The group was actually much more...

    I agree. The group was actually much more versatile than most realized. They could equally pull off a pop persona like the Sups but with much more grit and soul like Martha & The Vandellas. I...
  10. I know it's been said the Marvelettes inventory...

    I know it's been said the Marvelettes inventory has been pretty much exhausted but maybe there's another cut or two from 1970...would be interesting to hear!
  11. Wow! I have this box set and it slipped by me...

    Wow! I have this box set and it slipped by me too. Generally I go for the stuff from '64 and after but this does sound really good. Gladys had such an instinct for delivery and Kat, Wanda and...
  12. This is so good! I liked this material on the...

    This is so good! I liked this material on the "Something New" album, but I had no idea they did more. This is really amazing for such a young group.
  13. Exactly. That's why it stuck in my mind that I...

    Exactly. That's why it stuck in my mind that I had read it somewhere because it was so odd. The Four Tops were MADE for that type of venue. Hopefully, someone will have some old magazine article that...
  14. Thank you for that! I really would have thought...

    Thank you for that! I really would have thought the Four Tops would have done especially well at such a place. After reading what you wrote, I did start to recall Smokey not liking the...
  15. Makes you realize just how thoroughly the Tops...

    Makes you realize just how thoroughly the Tops harmonies were obscured on a lot of their studio recordings. What I'm hearing here is mesmerizing!
  16. A bit off subject but it seems I recall reading...

    A bit off subject but it seems I recall reading about how various Motown acts did at the Copa. What stood out in my mind is that the Miracles and Four Tops didn't do so well there (that the Tops...
  17. I can always count on you Paul! I thought...

    I can always count on you Paul! I thought something had been mentioned before about Uriel's trademark was that he really hit those drum hears HARD and that's the thought I had listening to ASTTRM....
  18. Motown drummer question #kazillion

    Why my ears haven't gotten keener on which drummer is on various tracks, I don't know! I've been playing Martha Reeves & The Vandellas' "Ridin' High" album and 2 tracks have been on endless repeat...
  19. The Originals are one of the great...

    The Originals are one of the great overlooked/underrated groups of Motown. I have a feeling one day something big will happen on them. Blinky finally has had a wonderful release and maybe The...
  20. I will make sure to find this particular release...

    I will make sure to find this particular release of this CD. By the way, your work on providing scans and such detailed information on Motown CDs is mind-blowing. I really appreciate the time you...
  21. Thanks for that info. I had always wondered if...

    Thanks for that info. I had always wondered if this was a Motown-recorded album ever since I saw the cover pictured on an 1980's inner album sleeve. It was when Motown was re-issuing its back...
  22. werk!!!!!!

    werk!!!!!!
  23. Four Tops Lost For Words. Why that one never...

    Four Tops Lost For Words. Why that one never even rated placement on an album leaves me lost for words.
  24. I had never considered buying the Thelma Houston...

    I had never considered buying the Thelma Houston or Hearts Of Stone albums before-I just never got into post-60s Motown. But your post is making me have 2nd thoughts. I think I will be expanding my...
  25. I always thought the arrangement on this probably...

    I always thought the arrangement on this probably was way too ahead of its time. At last, it's getting some love (hey a sample is acknowledging the greatness of a tune!) And it sounds good!
