    According to Mark Ribowsky’s Temptations book, Singin’ Sammy Ward was sent home from the Motortown revue after he was booed off at the Apollo. My favorite song by Ward was his last release for Motown...

    I saw the Motown documentary a few weeks ago. Surprisingly, I learned a few things I didn’t know. One of them was the fact that QC wasn’t that impressed with “My Girl”, which was revealed with...

    That’s a really good question. It also would have given us one more song where we could truly say it’s Tammi. My guess is that Nick & Val didn’t know about the tracks existence or didn’t think it...

    This song went up against “The Way You Do The Things You Do” for the a-side slot. Smokey came to Berry shortly after he’d cut Just Let Me Know, to tell him he had a “smash for the Temptations. Berry...

    I couldn’t agree more! Sadly, according to her “Unsung” doc, the doctors knew Tammi’s condition was terminal and they chose not to tell her for that very reason. I have a hunch that Nick & Val knew...

    It certainly does. It always bothered me how one sided the opinions are. People always point out why Valerie’s not telling the truth, but ignore the fact that Marvin’s take is just as sketchy, if not...

    My guess is that Marvin flubbed a line or missed it altogether. While Lawrence Payton couldn’t imitate Marvin, he at least could punch in an ad-lib and not have anyone know the difference.

    There are different versions of the story. Marvin stated shortly before his death that Tammi was too ill to record for the “Easy” album and that Valerie Simpson sang all of the female parts imitating...

    I would say that losing Shorty Long and Tammi Terrell within 9 months of each other was really heartbreaking. They were both young and at the height of their success. I’m sure Florence’s demise had a...

    The excitement i have for this release is as great as if they were ten releases on the same day! I’m ordering mine as soon as I get my next paycheck.

    Clay McMurray is one of the most underrated producers of all time. So much of his productions (namely the stuff he did with David Ruffin & the Fantastic Four) lingered in the vaults for decades. And...

    “I Want To Go Back There Again” was ahead of it’s time. To me it sounds like something more ubiquitous with the 90s rather than the then present 60s. I can easily hear someone like No Doubt or Sheryl...

    Tamla, because Marvin, Stevie and Smokey! It would suck having to give up the Temptations ( though I would have Eddie’s solo recordings), Four Tops and many others.

    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.
