    I always thought this would have been a good B-Side for "It's All Been Said Before" as a late 1974 single release. I believe they both had the same producer.

    In terms of what's left, here's what I can think of off the top of my head. This also includes material that has been released, but not on CD. I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot, and there's more we don't...

    I would gladly buy a 70's Lost & Found set. I think I've bought every 70's release since the first anthology came out in 2002.

    Thank you, woodward! What a wonderful article and awesome playlist. I still need to read Mrs. Obama's book.

    I'd start by moving "I'm Livin' In Shame" to the "Love Child" album, and having the album come out in early 1969. I'd move "Someday We'll Be Together" to "Greatest Hits: Volume 3," and have the last...

    I love this set list. The Jesus Christ Superstar medley is perfect because it would have worked in a regular concert as well as a night club set.

    It took me years to figure out that what I really loved about the Miracles' sound was Claudette's vocals. She wasn't given many leads, but they were solid songs. Mr. Misery is probably my favorite,...

    I honestly think that the biggest misstep in the 70's was not releasing the original "Stone Love" single, album, and cover art. The misspelling and bubblegum artwork really undermined the...

    I think that's why so many of us create our own mixes of Motown albums. It's all a matter of taste, but there were albums by multiple artists that could have been combined into one strong album....

    The Right On album is one of my favorites, and it would have been perfect with the addition of "Life Beats." It would have made a great follow up single. "Bill, When Are You Coming Back" was also...

    Over-saturating the market was an issue for The Supremes, and Motown in general. They would have been better off doing two albums per year, releasing just one album with Four Tops in 1971, followed...

    Mary would sound wonderful on the right arrangement of "Natural Woman." I was trying to think of a good song for her.

    You make some really good points. I would have combined "Let The Sunshine In" and "Cream of the Crop" into a single album of strong, new material. "Someday We'll Be Together" could have simply been...

    MSC would have been the best 70's incarnation of the group to do a variety show/special. I would have liked to see "Discover Japan" aired and released as an album in the U.S.

    I think from "Torch Song" on, it's pretty stiff competition for the most over the top Crawford performance. I'm partial to "Johnny Guitar." Thanks for the Sunday morning laugh!

    I've never gotten the impression that Tammi was seriously considered, but she would have been my ideal replacement. I was sold once I heard her cover "Baby Love" during her Roostertail concert....

    Despite not having a lot of support from Motown, I think the final four albums by The Marvelettes are all strong. Stronger than the final two DRATS albums, or some of the material Martha Reeves and...

    At some point Lynda said "Love Is Here And Now You're Gone" was her favorite song from the 60's. They should have let her sing it in their live act since Jean didn't like it.

    Lynda would have slayed "Bad Weather." Just listen to her wail on the background vocals. It could have also been a potential transition if Jean just wanted out, and Lynda was moved into the lead...

    Yes, I meant six months just for the background vocals. Learning the leads she only had a few weeks.

    That's awesome! I've wondered how they handled Jean not being there, but perhaps only avid fans noticed the change? Back in '72, with the right wig, Lynda had a passing resemblance to Diana. To be...
