    Sorry to hear about Wayne Fontana's passing last week. I'll always remember him for the 1965 hit "The Game Of Love" with The Mindbenders. RIP Wayne.
  3. Signed, Sealed & Delivered certainly has moments...

    Signed, Sealed & Delivered certainly has moments with four major hits (and some good 'deep cuts' like "I Gotta Have A Song", "Don't Wonder Why" & "Sugar"). It's also the last studio album that...
  4. Steve Van Zandt to Interview Martha Reeves on ‘Virtual Roadshow’

    Detroit-focused episode will also feature a never-seen, pro-shot video of Bruce Springsteen and Reeves performing in 2003

    Steve Van Zandt hosts the second episode of his Virtual Roadshow Thursday,...
  5. Ah yes; I'm pretty sure that 'The Corporation'...

    Ah yes; I'm pretty sure that 'The Corporation' was inspired by Joe Tex's wonderful "The
    Love You Save (May Be You're Own)" from 1966 when they came up The Jackson 5's similarly named Classic (and...
  6. "I Found That Girl" was one of the best Jackson 5...

    "I Found That Girl" was one of the best Jackson 5 B-sides. It must've received some air play for the song to get listed on Billboard along with "The Love You Save" & placed on the group's Greatest...
  7. Little Richard "The Rill Thing" & "King Of Rock And Roll" expanded remasters 9/18/20

    The Rill Thing:
    Description
    Some successful recording artists are lucky to enjoy a lengthy career and perhaps one successful comeback after their popularity wanes over time. Rock ’n’ roll pioneer...
  8. You're right about that. "Out Of Sight" could've...

    You're right about that. "Out Of Sight" could've replaced "Oh Baby, Don't You Weep" or "Baby You're Right" on Disc 1 from this set since it was a such a key song in JB's career. Oh well...it's the...
  9. And I think the only reason why "Out Of Sight" is...

    And I think the only reason why "Out Of Sight" is simply due to lack of space on this collection. Polydor Records (now part of Universal Music Group) bought JB's entire catalog when he signed to the...
  10. James Brown "Collected" 3CD set (Universal NL) 6/26/2020

    Description
    James Brown Collected is the most comprehensive career overview of The Godfather Of Soul. From the early days on the Federal label, major hits on Federal and Polydor, and later hits on...

    Very Nice! Thanks to LuckyLuckyMe for sharing this clip (and if it's been posted here before, I've never seen it prior to this). Yes, Tom Jones could perform alongside (almost) anyone and he holds...

    You're right Boogiedown & I stand corrected. The comment that Don Cornelius made to Michael might've helped to fuel his problems with self-imaging. I forgot that Michael (like other teen-age...
  13. So sorry to hear about Joe Jefferson. I'll...

    So sorry to hear about Joe Jefferson. I'll remember him best for the songs that he wrote or co-wrote for The Spinners like "Sadie", "Games People Play" & "Love Don't Love Nobody".
  14. Agreed! Michael had a problem with his looks...

    Agreed! Michael had a problem with his looks long before that appearance on Soul Train. I also feel that becoming rich & famous allowed him the money to indulge in plastic surgery to the extant...

    According to the books written by both Maurice White & George Clinton, the main reason that neither EW&F or P-Funk played on Soul Train in the mid '70s is that both of them were encouraging people to...

    ‘Sex Machine’ at 50: Bootsy Collins Recalls ‘Twilight Zone’ Origins of Funky James Brown Hit“It was like something from The Twilight Zone, because I mean, who does this kind of stuff?” bassist Bootsy...

    I've heard that Norman Whitfield used the backing track that The Isley's used for their version of "Grapevine" (after removing their vocal tracks) for The Temptations take on the song for the Cloud...

    The same thing happened to me with those two songs. UMe/Motown needs to get the material up & running on YouTube.
  19. Yes! I had forgotten about their set when I...

    Yes! I had forgotten about their set when I initially made my post (and corrected it when I realized my mistake). The 50th Anniversary set for them is a real gem since it contains a full set of...

    How about the 50th Anniversary Complete Singles Collections? I know they only did four of them (for the Supremes, Temptations, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas & Four Tops).
  21. One more thing: "What's Going On" wasn't held...

    One more thing: "What's Going On" wasn't held back that long. Marvin first entered the studio to record the song in June 1970 and completed it in September 1970. The song finally came out in...
  22. I'm going to say NO. I don't think that year...

    I'm going to say NO. I don't think that year long wait for the single "What's Going On" to come out made any difference to it's success. After all we're still talking about the song (and the album)...

    Wow! This is great news & thanks to Jack020 for sharing.
  24. Terrific article; thanks for sharing Woodward! ...

    Terrific article; thanks for sharing Woodward! Part of the Glory of Motown's peak years in the '60s is that there were so many great songs that did not come out at that time.

    Great look back on Marvin Gaye's classic What's Going On. Thanks for sharing Midnightman.
