    Thanks for posting this great interview. I'd never seen it before. I knew all about all the early period events in his history [[except the West Point situation), but learned a lot about his...

    19763
    In Winnipeg, back during the 1940s and 1950s, they almost NEVER cancelled school days for too much snow. We used to ski to school [[on cross-country skis). We didn't even bring them into the...

    19750
    My current car [[2013 Nissan) has a mini-tire [[only good for emergencies). In 1980, when I bought my Subaru 4-Wheel Wagon, it had an undersized spare, too. I immediately went to a junkyard...

    19749
    For me it's his time at Chess Records with Harvey Fuqua's New Moonglows, and his first couple years with Tamla [[1958-62).

    19748
    The Rayber Voices are definitely on this recording, just as they were on Barrett Strong's version. The prominent voices probably Clarence Paul, and it's likely that although Berry was...

    19742
    Griffin was working basically with Ed Wingate and JoAnne Bratton, right after the Golden World sale to Motown, as they were setting up the new, solid blue Ric-Tic label [[registered in...

    19741
    The Moonglows were actually from Louisville, Kentucky. But Alan Freed brought them to Cleveland in 1952, to record for his new Champagne Records label, and then got them a deal with Art...

    19740
    Of course, this CD is VERY relevant to soulful Detroit, as all of those 1966-67 releases were Detroit productions by ex-Motowner, Herman Griffin [[Mary Wells' ex-husband), who, himself, was...

    19732
    Nice to know that my old memory is still at least partly intact! :cool:

    19731
    I wonder if Carolyn was actually still with Motown when Martha and The Vandellas recorded "Love Makes Me Do Foolish Things". I'm sure I saw recording dates by Carolyn on some of her later...

    19720
    WHY???? Alan Freed was a DJ who was a Jazz fan, who happened to discover R&B music, and decided to bring that to the attention of his mainly "Caucasian" radio [[and later, TV, Film, and live...

    19665
    I first heard The Supremes in spring 1961, when I played "I Want A Guy" and "Never Again" on their Tamla single. I bought it because I liked so many Tamla records that I tried them all. I...

    Sad to hear this. But he lived to 93, and died peacefully of natural causes. I hope I make it to 93. We should all be so lucky.

    19643
    The Love-Tones were their main background-only group, that was sort of a counterpart to The Andantes. The other early male BG group was The Temptations. Then, The Spinners were used. Then,...

    19575
    I agree that the song doesn't sound like it was written by Smokey, or that he produced it. It is much too bluesy and funky, and it doesn't have the usual poetic feel of most of Smokey's...

    I haven't learned anything new about that recording, or any version of that song, since then.

    19569
    Maybe there IS a relationship. Maybe they chose to start as #4 in case they would re-issue those 3 Gospel records for the oldies market, especially if Divinity would become a strong-selling...

    19556
    I think you are oversimplifying the actual situation, and that Soul Records was the only Motown non-specific genre label that had one type of sound on it [[grittier Soul Music, but it also had...

    19517
    I hated when Mary Wells left, but was glad that the next several songs that would have gone to her went to Brenda Holloway. Had Kim remained with Motown a few years longer, I wonder which...

    19514
    Maybe that's because it was a California group, and not distributed heavily in The East, but, and maybe not much in The Midwest. I never heard it nor saw it in Chicago, L.A., or The Bay Area....
