    Actually the opening lines were done by Sammy Davis Jr, who at that time was alternating the Judge gag with Pigmeat Markham on Laugh-in. Markham would cut his own Here Comes the Judge on Chess later...

    I was surprised to see Henry do the falsetto part. The first time I saw this, I thought that Billy would sing that part. The Spinners were probably the only group that didn’t have a true high...

    This was commonplace in Soul music, especially during the 70s. And Motown definitely had it’s fair share of “raps” as they were typically called. Here are a few that come to mind!

    My top five decades of R&B music.

    1. 70s
    2. 60s
    3. 90s my childhood
    4. 80s
    5. Tie between the 50s and 00s. Both decades were a mixed bag IMO.

    All of Gamble & Huff’s masters were (and still are) owned by Sony. So they weren’t affected at all. Since Bell was a freelance producer, it’s likely his works are owned by various companies. So I’m...

    I’m going to go with Phoenix Rising, from what was also the last great era for R&B music, the 90s!

    I knew Kenny Gamble sang on “Yes I’m Ready”, but I didn’t know Weldon McDougal was involved. Keep up the good work, Jim! Looking forward to the hit making era.

    Didn’t Al Bryant open for the Dramatics on some of their early shows? I was thinking that was what Marv was referring to.

    That’s really sad! A good chunk of the Four Tops post-Motown catolouge (and some pre-Motown recordings) were also involved in this tragedy!

    Amen to that, Stu! No offense to the Vandellas or Marvelletes, but sometimes their voices were a bit too shaky and unpolished for some of the songs! I saw an old video of Martha and the Vandellas...

    These people are part of what is known as the “Them Too Movement”. They’re trying to raise media awareness of the powerful white men whom have not been brought down or otherwise haven’t been brought...

    Is Mike Boone now or was he ever a member of the forum? I think his knowledge of music and his presence would be welcomed here.

    I thought he turned 80 last year. Nevertheless, I’m glad to know he’s hanging in there.

    I’m glad to hear that he has a donor lined up. I’m also glad we got it right from the source this time. Wishing the Wonderman the best!

    I don’t think he would’ve done the other show if he was really dealing with something. People need to get their facts straight before putting it out there.

    I said the same thing about Otis Redding & BB King!

    Bobby’s the one that passed away. The rest of the DeBarges are still with us. Albeit, some of them (including Tommy) aren’t in the best of health.

    TVOne should leave the biopics to BET! They did a piss poor job with the story. It focused more on Bobby’s downfall and the rise of DeBarge. That is my biggest problem with the film. Even then, other...

    Y’all I’m 45 minutes into this film. And so far, it’s even more underwhelming than I thought it would be. Who thought casting Big Boi as BG wasn’t a good idea? And that actor playing Jermaine...

    Well, that’s a glimmer of hope. However, only the first two post-Teddy albums were cut at sigma. But it’s possible those masters are there and not in LA.
