    According to the author, some Motown employees went "rogue" and shipped new, just released albums as if they were "cut-outs." Cut-outs are albums that have been discontinued or gone out of print,...

    Hello friends. Was wondering if perhaps with the pandemic [[hopefully) mostly behind us and people getting out and about more, perhaps this is an idea whose time has come.

    A long overdue and very welcome release. I think I finally have the first 4 LPs on CD. I held off on buying "Sweet Sweet Soul" because I think on CD it is paired with another LP which I bought...

    @timmyfunk1,

    Yes, Parlet has been well served for the most part except for the third LP never coming out on CD that I’m aware of. The other two reissues have fantastic sound and the “best of“ is...

    What a fantastic looking line up! I love when they have "familiar songs by unfamiliar artists," like the old 'Motown Superstars Sing Motown Superstars' from one of the early vault releases that came...

    The remaster on this was done so beautifully that, similar to the “A Go Go,” remaster, it made me fall in love with an album I thought was only ho-hum the first time around. As for the “Funny Girl,”...

    @milven,

    The drawing on the label and the 12” sleeves, which I always loved, certainly paid homage to the film.

    I completely agree with this assessment. The song is pleasant but to me definitely lacks excitement.


    The only thing I disagree with you about, is that I love the song “one more chance“! Anything...

    I think from the length of the track and the sound of it, it seems like the original version from the first issues of the soundtrack album. Also if the video is to be trusted, the album pictured has...

    I agree. I think it definitely has a lot of influence from the earlier Donna Summer song. The opening sort of staccato background and the music during the break is very evocative of “I Feel Love.” ...

    @paul_nixon,

    how lucky you were to have known Deke Richards. He certainly seems to be a major player during the latter phase of Motown’s golden age. From buying records, I knew his name well...

    I never heard that Dionne Warwick had brought BJ Thomas into Specter Records. I would say that if that story was circulated by Florence Greenberg, the head of the company, I think she...
