    Wow! Thanks for sharing this interview with Chaka Khan. I can understand why she doesn't have any interest in singing with Women right now but here's a Woman that she did a background vocal for...

    I'd like to to see books about Edwin Starr, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, The Velvelettes & Kim Weston (just to add to the names already mentioned).

    Good question! It's never been fully described but to me Wilson's "higher love" concept means songs that encourage the listener to funny develop a love of the self and a love for all of mankind. I...

    Yes indeed; Motown Records would indeed do multiple versions of a song until they got it right. Even after the song had already been released. Examples: the 2 remakes of The Miracles' "Shop...

    Good one PNH! The Presidents' "5-10-15-20 (25-30 Years Of Love)" is Early '70s Soft Soul at it's best. And Marvin Gaye recorded a version of the song that was unreleased until The Marvin Gaye...

    Another example of a multi-part song that had different feels from each of the parts is Stevie Wonder's "Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)" from Music Of My Mind. The first half of the 8...

    Here's a Motown Song that had four different versions; "Whisper You Love Me Boy"-

    Forgot about this one earlier; The Jackson 5's "I Am Love". This song from 1974's Dancing Machine (and an edited 2-part single) begins with a slow & meditative groove and brakes out into an up-tempo...

    Good point! I had forgotten about Little Stevie's first single, "I Call It Pretty Music" from 1962. Parts 1 & 2 were different treatments of the same song.

    While I haven't read any comments from Frank Wilson or Smokey Robinson about the making of "Still Water (Love)"/"Still Water (Peace)", I'm going to take a guess and say that the song was similar to...
  11. Stevie Wonder Releases First New Music in 15 Years

    Stevie Wonder has kept a relatively low profile over the last decade, but that quiet period — which follows a health scare — seems to be ending. On Tuesday, the 70-year-old legend announced the...

    According to the book about The Philly Sound, A House On Fire, Thom Bell didn't even like the name of the group! The book also states that he didn't like their voices & had to use "every trick in...

    I fondly remember New York City's hit song, "I'm Doin' Fine Now". I bought the single when it came out back in '73 so I knew it was a Thom Bell production (as well as a co-write). Even though the...

    I had another collection on Marvin Gaye called A Musical Testament 1964-1984. Released in 1988, the CD had the 'overdubbed' versions on "Lonely Lover" & "Loving And Affection" from the Motown...

    Thanks for sharing that article about James Jamerson. I didn't know the The Miracles'
    "Way Over There" was the first session that J.J. had played on (nor did I know that "Strange I Know" was the...

    I pick the first album by The Jimmy Castor Bunch from 1972, It's Just Begun. This album set the tone for their work during the '70s and while they never matched the consistency of that LP, the band...

    So sorry to hear about Johnny Nash. His hits, "Hold Me Tight", "Stir It Up" & especially "I Can See Clearly Now" helped to popularize Reggae Music in the USA & the World. RIP Johnny.

    I just found out! I've been hearing rumors about Eddie's health for the last couple of months but this is still a huge shock (and another loss to the Music World). RIP Eddie Van Halen.

    My copy of A Cellarful of Motown, Vol. 5 arrived yesterday. One thing that I'm enjoying about this new collection (besides the songs) is the packaging. The notes for all the songs are easier to...
