    I wonder if there is a Four Tops version lurking in Motown's vault? Perhaps even one with a demo vocal take?

    FCT for me. The strength of Diana's vocals warranted a much more compelling drum track than the (presumably) LA one. A great song.

    Also, Back In My Arms Again failed in the UK. For me this song...

    That's interesting, thanks. Are there any other singles that had the slow sales/remix treatment that you can think of please?

    Nothing But Heartaches (Second Version)

    I wonder if anyone knows the background to this version on the song please.

    To my ears it is a preferable mono mix to that originally released as the single mix. It has more "sparkle" to it with...

    Bonjour François

    France has been lucky over the years to have some variations on UK Motown releases. When on holiday in Argelès-sur-Mer several years ago I noticed that Stevie Wonder's Song Review...

    I have always liked this song and also wondered why it didn't chart. In many ways it is like the Supreme's Stoned Love in that it recalls aspects of the mid 60s golden era style.

    The sound quality of Why....... was resolved on The Complete Duets 2 CD album. I always wondered why the LP had a the problem and whether it was resolved for the A-side release of the song in the UK....

    With all of this debate, I need to remind myself that Tammi was reportedly taken to Motown's recording studios in a wheelchair to record YAINTGB. That determination prevailed even later when she was...

    Papa Was A Rollin' Stone on 45 was split over the two sides.

    Are you aware of other songs recorded in that sequence Paul where he mentions Tammi's name?

    For me, a key reason to think it's Tammi on YAINTGB is that Marvin mentions her name, "Tammi listen". I don't think that he would have mentioned her name on a song where Valerie is singing or where...

    Perhaps ITITALT would have had more impact if the final chorus wasn't cut so short. The alternate version on the expanded album had a "fantastic celebratory feel of finding love" with it's longer...

    This sounds interesting as I have always felt that Diana & Marvin sounded lacking in dynamics, with some aspects of the recordings sounding slightly muffled.

    I hope that Motown finds an opportunity to create a duet of Diana and Marvin's Dark Side Of The World. John Perrone did a great job with his version but when chatting with him once he explained that...

    I bought the album at the time of its release. I was very pleased to hear previously unreleased songs by Marvin and I agree with your view on the best tracks.

    I’m trying to think if all the album...

    Well done to all involved, especially...

    I have always liked the song but felt that it would have been improved by being a bit more up tempo.

    A great vocal performance by Diana though!

    I suspect that the album mix of WGO might have faired better as a single in the UK. The USA single mix at times uses the "wrong" lead vocal as well as just sounding "odd" at times.
