    OK - it's 1967 at the Ram Jam Club in Brixton, London - for some reason made it's way onto Frech TV. There's a few different clips, all well worth watching. Those guys could play, sing, dance and...

    [King] Charles was pretty enamoured of the Three Degrees. Not Motown, but worthy of note. In the UK it was the pirate radio stations that really popularised Motown over here. That and the fanatical...

    Another tour in the U K would be the icing on the cake - for me anyway.

    Motown successfully blurred the line between soul and pop anyway.

    I found this hard, never having listened to any of them before. Started with the Temps. Apart from David's voice, it just sounded like a generic Motown song as if a bit of a rushed production. The...

    Yes, absolutely stupendous. As a 16 yr old in '68 it was one of the few vinyl discs I bought. Still have it but very scratched from use at house parties. Got a lot of play at minor clubs and pub...

    Great track - didn't get much of an airing in the UK when first released. In the UK, 6345678 and Raise your hand were the most popular tracks amongst 60s Mods althought they too were not played much...

    I would have loved to go. Have really missed going to see my 60s r&b heroes. I get what you mean though re angling the set a little UK centric. The wonderful William Bell introduced Elouise [[Hang on...

    There's something a bit odd about that clip. The styling and shooting angles don't seem typical of 60s pop video/film styles. But what do I know?

    It varied, but the "cleanest" cuts used the Motown Original Artist Karaoke series. I could hardly believe it when I heard of his passing.

    Other versions are available with different backing - all good, but check out The Undisputed Truth

    It's the first offering from a new venue in London. I will very likely go and report back. London does need more music venues with dining and this has the potential to be successful.

    OK - I'm stretching things a bit here as these were not Motown releases but we understand that the Funk Bros were moonlighting on this track.
