    The Google preview above doesn't work for me but if it links to the excerpts below, they don't actually contradict the passage in James' book. David Kapralik was careful enough to state that to his...

    I never made a claim that Jones is a historian. My response was to a comment about what might best be left unsaid.
  3. And those who seek to prove him wrong should do...

    And those who seek to prove him wrong should do so, hopefully without resorting to insults.


    Further to the Sly/Day claims. Jet magazine had an interview with Sly Stone in their issue of October...

    The previously unissued "Wishful Thinking" is from the pen of British comedian and singer Kenny Lynch.

    The version released back in 1970 had Linda Thorson, star of "The Avengers," on lead vocals....

    You're resorting to hyperbole? That doesn't strengthen your argument.
  6. I don't know but I believe you. I also...

    I don't know but I believe you.


    I also believe this is a definition for "matter of fact":



    Synonyms include: straightforward, plain, unembellished.

    I maintain that word accurately...

    Thankfully, that's not the historian way.



    I can debunk your claim as "Que Sera Sera" is on the album Fresh. Sly and family appear on the cover of an album named Small Talk.

    I don't think it's a given that a relationship likely to be deemed "bad for business" would not be documented widely, especially if that relationship may have been confined to the individuals' homes....

    Was Quincy Jones sued for his last freewheelin' interview?

    The dead can't sue.



    From Etta James' "Rage to Survive," top of page 195:

    I can understand wanting further details from Jones to better make one's own judgment on Presley's racism. But he specifically makes reference to a run in with Presley while in the presence of Tommy...
  12. And has it ever been different? We have always...

    And has it ever been different? We have always been sold images, tweaked for maximum impact. Jones' recent comments don't seem unbelievable to me. Cybill Shepherd has already indicated that Elvis...
  13. Have you some public figures in mind? I think...

    Have you some public figures in mind? I think it's at best rather paternalistic to suggest that the public should be fed the "right" narrative to ensure an artist's legacy. Quincy Jones has no such...
  14. Who suggested "we" do such a thing? Quincy Jones?...

    Who suggested "we" do such a thing? Quincy Jones? As I recall, Jones suggested that the Beatles didn't play their instrumentals all that well back then, in his opinion. The Beatles are musical gods...

    It sounds to me like some are deeming him bitter because they don't like what he has to say about some of their heroes.

    The early 1990s "Queen of Soul" set is still considered the standard, I believe.

    There's a new box set due July 30th to coincide with the Jennifer Hudson led biopic.

    That's an underdub, which seems to have been the single version in the UK.

    More like "That's When the Tears Start" and "Good, Good Lovin'" require licensing... I wish Ace Records would do a licensed comp but I guess they don't see it as a viable release so they reissue...

    This smokes!

    Can it be found on CD? I've only heard the stereo underdub in the CD era.

    I've always disliked the heavy percussion sound on "Hope Is an Open Window." I see that it's a remix by Christopher Ward and Tim Tickner. I'd love to hear Daryl Simmons' original production, if it's...

    The vocals sound so much more natural here than on the Soul Solution Remix.

    I'd still like to know the contents of that original, proposed tracklist if you have it to hand.

    Ah, so the same team behind "Drop The Mask." Thanks.

    Who are the writers and producers for "Free"? The Genius listing for the song credits the writer and producer of the 1995 "Gone," which of course is a different song.
