    144man, you can add Martha Reeves & The Vandellas' version of "Living In A World I Created For Myself" to that list of George Gordy compositions and productions. When I took a tour of Motown's...

    And here's a 1968 performance from Martha, Lois, & Sandy on the Mike Douglas Show. Motown had glammed up The Vandellas BIG TIME. Martha looks and sounds fantastic -- especially on her solo version...

    I used to watch the Mike Douglas show a lot after arriving home from school back in the '60s. Over the years, I remember seeing The Supremes singing "I Hear A Symphony", Edwin Starr singing "25...

    This is really good news! I just hope they don't skimp on the '60s aspect of Marvin's Motown career. It's my favorite of the two decades.

    Happy Birthday, Brenda! I hope your special day's the best ever!
  6. Yes, Mary. That's correct on both counts.

    Yes, Mary. That's correct on both counts.

    I remember getting The Monitor's "Greetings! We're The Monitors" LP for Christmas 1968 upon its release. I, too, was excited by The Motown Sound contained within. And was equally surprised that The...

    Kenny, glad to hear that the DRATS "Sing And Perform 'Funny Girl'" bug finally bit you! It's been among my favorite Supremes albums since its 1968 release. Diana's voice took a huge leap into...

    Diana's new "Thank You" is growing on me, and this enthusiastic and positive review is really helping to reinforce it!

    Mr. June, I may be able to help you there, or, at least, steer you in the right direction.

    I developed a love for B.J.'s music in the late '70s when I discovered his Christian music, especially "Home Where I Belong". Then I started buying his Pop albums on MCA as well. From then on, I...

    Wow! Thanks, Kenny. I couldn't have said it better myself, Buddy!
  15. Thanks for your kind post, Drew. Back in the...

    Thanks for your kind post, Drew. Back in the early 2000's, Simon Cowell had a brainstorm: wouldn't it be neat to take 4 male opera singers and put them together in a pop group. He tried it, and...
  16. YOU had better! Ha!

    YOU had better! Ha!
  17. Thanks, Thom! Ya win some; you lose some.

    Thanks, Thom! Ya win some; you lose some.

    Again, I'm sorry for having repeated Jack's earlier announcement. As I said, I was out of commission for a few months. I found out about IL DIVO's new Motown-tribute CD just last night, thinking it...

    Hey, Jack! I'm sorry to have repeated your earlier thread. I was out of commission for a few months and didn't realize that you had already announced it. I just found out about IL DIVO's new...
  20. Coming In July -- IL DIVO - "For Once In My Life" CD

    After being discovered by Simon Cowell in 2003, IL DIVO went on to sell over 30 million albums and sell out arena tours worldwide. For their 10th studio album, IL DIVO is ready to release their brand...

    Wow! I don't recall ever hearing Valerie Simpson speak before. What a sweetheart! In addition to her [[and Nick's) musical contributions to Motown, it's plain to see why she was so well liked in...

    Wish I could help you, Woodward, but I haven't heard from Cary Mansfield since way back in the late 1980s/early '90s when he was reporting for ICE [[the International CD Exchange newsletter) which...

    Excellent Velvelettes video! Wish it were a lot longer. It's amazing that, having been given the short end of the stick at Motown despite some hot releases, the girls have remained humble and...

    Gotta agree with you, Boogiedown. As much as I love The Andantes, I've never cared for their performance on this track. It's too shrill and annoying. In fact, it never occurred to me before, but I...

    One of my favorite HDH-produced Marvin Gaye tracks from the 1966 "Moods Of Marvin Gaye" LP. I especially love the string passages in the Mono mix. For some strange reason, the Stereo version...
