    Glad you enjoyed the comment Motown Eddie! It's my very last one here.
  2. This is James Dean and William Weatherspoon doing...

    This is James Dean and William Weatherspoon doing what they did and doing it very well. The team was great for the Marvelettes and I'd go so far to say the relationship between the writers and the...

    That was VERY good for a good chuckle today!

    Confession not necessary among Motown Swingers and Friends; I don't think anyone will fault you as far as whether or not the fans' emails were viewed. You are the bringer of amazing Motown gifts! ...
  5. Wow! This is very nice!!!!!

    Wow! This is very nice!!!!!
  6. Maybe Tammi Terrell (and the Monitors and Kim &...

    Maybe Tammi Terrell (and the Monitors and Kim & Marvin) summed it up best: it's "Just Too Much To Hope For". In the end, the sales and our buying this set will say more than anything else-at least...

    Yes, I've never gotten that whole thing that Ric Tic/GW was giving Berry sleepless nights. There were good records, some of them superb, but again, the company didn't have a star. Even if someone was...

    This is REALLY, very good. I could see this one really giving Motown pause. Well arranged, not a bum note or moment anywhere.
  9. It was and still is the best article I ever read...

    It was and still is the best article I ever read about the group. At the time, I was still discovering so much about Motown and the Marvelettes and this was THE article that de-mystified the girls. ...

    Westgrandboulevard beat me to the punch! I'm with you, I love this album too, very much. For one thing, it shows contrary to what had been said for years, the Marvelettes actually ended up on far...

    Been listening to some Ric Tic/Golden World stuff recently. There is something thrilling about the music but also kind of bizarre. Ric Tic had some really good moments but they didn't seem to have...

    With Wm Stevenson and Ivy Jo in particular, they would try to use the actual group on backgrounds. If you have either of the Marvelettes Forever More sets, there are a lot of unreleased songs from...
  13. Tammi Terrell Oh What A Good Man He Is Background Vocals

    I may have asked this before but does anyone know who the ladies are that sing the backgrounds on Tammi's Oh What A Good Man He Is? I seem to recall something being said about the Waters Sisters?

    Yes! So this song is kind of a NO-NO for me when I'm driving. Makes me totally ignore the speed limit! (But it's worth getting a ticket for Tammi!)
  16. I've been playing this the last few days and even...

    I've been playing this the last few days and even after some 20+ years, that part gives me chills. Just Tammi, a couple guitar licks and James's bass. I keep wondering how they came up with that;...

    Thanks Ollie. I do the same thing a lot- I would have done this and that differently- but then I have to catch myself and realize my reasoning is divorced from whatever was in fashion back then. I...

    Yes. I feel strongly that this is what's being missed when folks look back. Berry knew what he was doing with these specialty albums. It was right for the times. For some reason, it also is forever...

    Totally get it. But we say these things from a 2000s sensibility. What's easily missed is that a 1960s sensibility may have been FAR different. So what seems questionable or even obvious today was...

    Wow! Yes I remember those Jet magazine Soul Brothers charts. Can't recall if the name was changed slightly in the 70s, but you reminded me I did look at those too as a kid.

    And it really was...

    I think it was my obsessive reading about all things Motown as a kid made me more aware of the charts. Then I bought The Rolling Stone Illustrated Encyclopedia of Rock and Roll and REALLY learned...

    And somehow as I was typing all that, the answer became clearer. As they say, to ask a question is to answer it. Your reply pretty much summed it up well!
  24. Don't R&B chart placements mean anything?

    So, lately, I've been playing my Motown Complete Singles sets and reading the essays of each song. I was reminded of something that's always bothered me; there are many Motown records that, while...

    I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. If anything, it certainly gave lots of opportunities to determine the old question, "is it the singer or the song?" In listening to some of the...
