    I've used Ebay and Amazon for selling items. I won't use Amazon in the future.

    It is so weird - you see a CD for sale on Ebay at extortionate prices, and the following month, the same title /...

    I'm fairly sure that when Motown Chartbusters Volume 5 was released, there was a 'floppy' 7" disc which had several tracks on it - one of these being "my place". It was a 331/3 rpm. Also on the disc...

    I remember chatting with Kenny some years ago, and I was amazed that he had written this, and seemed to be so pleased that I knew the song. Yes, it had been a huge hit, but we're talking at least...

    I thought that the single was so underrated - it certainly is one of my favourites from Stevie - and I may be inclined to agree that I prefer this over all his other work from that decade.

    Thanks for posting this - and the images too. I particularly like the Marvelettes - I've not heard this version before, and I think the photograph of the four sets of the group is brilliant.

    You probably have forgotten, that it was a single, released in the UK (TMG 836).

    I know it was edited for the single, and I still consider it to be at least as good as the version by Diana.

    It's the first time I've heard this track by anyone other than Mary. It's a beautiful song, I've no idea who wrote it, and it's rather sad that Mary's version has not been released on CD (if it has,...

    I think one of my first 12" was The Jacksons with "Enjoy yourself" but then came along Donna Summer with "I feel love" and "Down Deep Inside", which was a US import, so it played slower than ours at...

    Interestingly, this LP was played by me far more times than Touch Me In The Morning (I didn't care for 'save the children / brown baby' for example - I just thought they were painfully dull).

    Thanks for finding and posting this one. Naturally, the song wasn't the best - but Jean's voice is unmistakeable - and destined to much better things.
