    I'm sure we all thought that songs took shape in a team orientated manner,then you realize it could take Eddie a month to write a single tune. He wasn't a fast writer at all. Another thing that stood...

    I've had mine for nearly a week( Bought two), but figured I might as well leave my thoughts. For the most part I'm happy,even though it is not the greatest sonically. I don't know what the exact...

    Too bad this took so long to surface, but thanks much Paul. I'll definitely be supporting this release. I see that there's a Tommy Good track "I Found My Love In You". Is this perhaps the lone studio...

    The Isley's claimed to have recorded it too. I guess Norman wiped their vocals from the track 'cause their version doesn't exist anymore.

    As far as a copa album is concerned there may be some shows committed to tape. Motown made a practice of documenting such events for preservation purposes in some cases. But when it comes to studio...

    "Bless You" is a nice song and a great example of Detroit Soul. However, I don't hear any hit potential in it. Had I worked alongside QC and felt that maybe it could be something,I'd suggest B side...

    The reason he's never watched it is because seeing everything that transpired with the group will make him emotional. As he told Smokey when they discussed it one day: "Smokey, I just don't feel like...

    Yes. Great Smokey composition. I laugh like crazy when I hear this track out of nowhere due to the memory attached. I remember when Burger King used this song as a promotional tune in the late 90's...

    Too bad due to the Golden World masters existing no more,we can't hear the alternative versions. Edwin Starr laid one lead of about three. Steve Mancha and JJ Barnes also did a pass, but Edwin's...

    That's what I thought too. Unfortunately Smokey left very little on the cutting room floor. He seemed to record only the songs he was most passionate about. That's why when we get unissued Miracles...

    As far as Tommy Good is concerned I was told there were just some live tracks left. They utilized all the studio recordings including "Honey Lane" which clearly isn't mixed. Then they omitted one...

    A QC book is a juicy idea, though I can't see it being that many pages. Motown certainly didn't want The Marvelettes to mature with their fanbase and Smokey was the only producer to see what the real...
