    This is so good! I liked this material on the "Something New" album, but I had no idea they did more. This is really amazing for such a young group.
  2. Exactly. That's why it stuck in my mind that I...

    Exactly. That's why it stuck in my mind that I had read it somewhere because it was so odd. The Four Tops were MADE for that type of venue. Hopefully, someone will have some old magazine article that...
  3. Thank you for that! I really would have thought...

    Thank you for that! I really would have thought the Four Tops would have done especially well at such a place. After reading what you wrote, I did start to recall Smokey not liking the...
  4. Makes you realize just how thoroughly the Tops...

    Makes you realize just how thoroughly the Tops harmonies were obscured on a lot of their studio recordings. What I'm hearing here is mesmerizing!
  5. A bit off subject but it seems I recall reading...

    A bit off subject but it seems I recall reading about how various Motown acts did at the Copa. What stood out in my mind is that the Miracles and Four Tops didn't do so well there (that the Tops...
  6. I can always count on you Paul! I thought...

    I can always count on you Paul! I thought something had been mentioned before about Uriel's trademark was that he really hit those drum hears HARD and that's the thought I had listening to ASTTRM....
  7. Motown drummer question #kazillion

    Why my ears haven't gotten keener on which drummer is on various tracks, I don't know! I've been playing Martha Reeves & The Vandellas' "Ridin' High" album and 2 tracks have been on endless repeat...
  8. The Originals are one of the great...

    The Originals are one of the great overlooked/underrated groups of Motown. I have a feeling one day something big will happen on them. Blinky finally has had a wonderful release and maybe The...
  9. I will make sure to find this particular release...

    I will make sure to find this particular release of this CD. By the way, your work on providing scans and such detailed information on Motown CDs is mind-blowing. I really appreciate the time you...
  10. Thanks for that info. I had always wondered if...

    Thanks for that info. I had always wondered if this was a Motown-recorded album ever since I saw the cover pictured on an 1980's inner album sleeve. It was when Motown was re-issuing its back...
  11. werk!!!!!!

    werk!!!!!!
  12. Four Tops Lost For Words. Why that one never...

    Four Tops Lost For Words. Why that one never even rated placement on an album leaves me lost for words.
  13. I had never considered buying the Thelma Houston...

    I had never considered buying the Thelma Houston or Hearts Of Stone albums before-I just never got into post-60s Motown. But your post is making me have 2nd thoughts. I think I will be expanding my...
  14. I always thought the arrangement on this probably...

    I always thought the arrangement on this probably was way too ahead of its time. At last, it's getting some love (hey a sample is acknowledging the greatness of a tune!) And it sounds good!
  15. There was a Chicago DJ back in the 80s who played...

    There was a Chicago DJ back in the 80s who played It's A Good Feeling as if it were a single. Really surprised me that it wasn't just me who thought this was an obvious choice.
  16. Good Lord, Drew! I could get happy just listening...

    Good Lord, Drew! I could get happy just listening to your drums all day. You got it, man! And what a great tribute video!
  17. When Dean/Weatherspoon were on point, they came...

    When Dean/Weatherspoon were on point, they came up with some fantastic things. "Keep On Trying Til You Find Love", "Take Him Back If He Makes You Happy", "Which Way To My Baby" sound like they would...
  18. Many thanks for this! Fan of both Motown and KISS.

    Many thanks for this! Fan of both Motown and KISS.
  19. Knowing KISS, this is mind-blowing. About as far...

    Knowing KISS, this is mind-blowing. About as far removed as you can get from the KISS image and legacy. I'm super blown away by the beauty of this.
  20. I agree. There were a lot of good originals that...

    I agree. There were a lot of good originals that could have made for enjoyable albums. But the Tops, I believe, had remarked that those covers did expand their fan base, so the irony is that while it...
  21. I've never bought that argument about the...

    I've never bought that argument about the departure of HDH causing the downfall of the Tops, Sups and Marrha & The Vandellas. At least not 100%. The HDH material was delivering diminishing returns...

    I really loved seeing Marty Stuart there. That showed me how much respect these musicians have for each other regardless what kind of music each plays.
  23. What a pleasure to see these, Marv! These men,...

    What a pleasure to see these, Marv! These men, The Funk Brothers were (and still) are my musical teachers. I learned to play a wide array of instruments from bass, to drums, to guitars, to keyboards...

    WOW (says I with eyes as huge as saucers)! I don't know how I missed this but, well done, Kenneth! I love that woman, well, all of them; this is truly one of the best things someone could have. I'd...

    The only one I know of, is the one that paired "War & Peace" with "25 Miles"
