    OK, that makes sense. There must have been some specific reason. And yeah, "I Want A Guy"???
  2. That does make sense. I recall reading in the...

    That does make sense. I recall reading in the Peter Benjaminson book on Mary Wells about the Low Rider culture really embracing some of the early 60s R&B music. And also, it seems a lot of people...

    Well! I just knew there was something about that picture! It's a pretty good job but the eye will usually tell you something is not quite right.
  4. I'm amazed at just how much recording she did at...

    I'm amazed at just how much recording she did at Motown. She and Brenda Holloway must hold some kind of record for the number of songs they recorded. The wild thing is, there was hardly a bad tune to...

    What a joy to see this major network, TCM, recognizing Motown in this way. TCM has such a wide-ranging and dedicated film audience and I'm sure it will help a more general audience to see Motown in...

    Wow! This site is really jumpin' lately! LOTS of fantastic links and discoveries. Thank you for sharing this.

    Question: I'm noticing some of the Miracles early 45s seemed to have had a second release years later "Shop Around" is shown on the "Globes" Tamla label with a date of 1965, then again on the "New...

    Such huge thanks for sharing these links! There is another site, I think it's called "Both Sides Now" that does something similar, but this site is much more fun to look through! I'm bookmarking...

    I thought I read it somewhere, but it may have just been someone's personal opinion, but I agree; the orange background with blue lettering can do a number on the eyes. The green background with...
  10. Thank you for your perspective on this and giving...

    Thank you for your perspective on this and giving it context by relating it to the Jazz recording field. I love Dave Brubeck (my gateway to jazz) and am espcially fascinated by the Blue Note records...
  11. I hadn't thought of it in that way but you're...

    I hadn't thought of it in that way but you're "Doggone Right". I think nearly any record company would have loved to have even a fraction of Motown's "cast offs". Consider all the acts that Motown...
  12. Motown Unreleased- A Question for Y'all

    This week, I've been revisiting the Cellarful of Motown CDs and honestly, if I live to be 100, I'll never get over the staggering amount of unreleased material Motown had. Not just the amount, but...

    What's more is Berry's unmatched scope of vision to understand the need for experts in marketing. Your songs can be the most amazing in the universe, but it makes no difference if nobody hears it....

    Many thanks for this information! I'll check it out for sure!

    I was going to type something, but dang, you said it way better than I could have. Every word is so true. Such an Amazingly elegant woman and beautiful inside and outside.

    Wow, that's excellent research work you did johnjeb! So my ears were telling me the story about side 2 after all. There is such a "sameness" of sound about those tracks. Well, it was a good way to...

    You know, I've NEVER listened to this album, but now maybe it's time I do. I'll have to check it out.
  18. Hmmmm good point, but I actually hadn't...

    Hmmmm good point, but I actually hadn't considered "A Go-Go" as a Quickie Album since the productions sound quite full, with strings and horns. I know tracks with sweetening usually take more than...

    HI Gary! Maybe it is stretching it to call "Sing Smokey" a Quickie Album, but to my ears, side two, while sounding great, has the feeling of all the tracks having been done in the same session. The...
  20. The Motown QUICK-EE Albums

    The Marvelettes had "The Marvelettes Sing".
    The Miracles had "Mickey's Monkey"
    The Temptations had "Sing Smokey"
    Martha & The Vandellas had "Heat Wave"

    These are albums, that, to me, are...

    Class started to go out when the Summer Of Love came in. The college kids were starting to rebel against becoming miniature carbon copies of what they saw as phony, plastic adults who valued...

    In a way, I miss that I grew up just as all that was going out of the window. I like the fact that people would dress up for things. I think when you dress a certain way, it can actually affect the...

    WOOOO! PREACH IT! You are telling nothing but the 100% truth on that!
  24. You'll never see that happen. The mindset of the...

    You'll never see that happen. The mindset of the world is so radically different from what the world was like in the 60's. Even back then, when The Supremes were taking the world by storm, their...

    I'm laughing because I'm remembering a conversation I had with my nephew. He's in his early 30's and has been getting into some of the 60's Motown songs. He was asking about this whole stereo/mono...
