    The song’s lyrics were originally written for Jimmy Ruffin’s “I Know How To Love Her”, which eventually evolved into “Too Busy Thinking About My Baby”! “No Man…” I’m sure was thrown together solely...

    That might be why the record was shelved! Motown couldn’t have two Marvin Gayes on their roster, never mind promote two Marvin Gayes. As enjoyable as “Still Holdin’ On” is, I don’t see it having gone...

    Norman Whitfield could produce some psychedelic soul! Though Frank Wilson, HDH, and Charles Stepney weren’t slouches either in that department.

    Probably Pistol Allen or Uriel Jones. The All-Stars hardly ever played in the studio with the Funks on the later recordings. Also, James Graves was killed in a car accident two years prior.

    If Marv was alive to see this, he’d be grinning from ear to ear. He didn’t buy any of this a lick.

    Even after two anthology sets and countless tracks on MU, there’s still more Brenda left in the vaults! Wow!

    Mine is somewhere in the 800s. I went ahead and ordered because I’m positive it will sell out immediately. It also appears that it’ll only highlight PIR LPs, which I hope it’s not the case, since...

    It took a while but the DeBarge interview is back up. And in hindsight, Don’s comments about Bunny were definitely uncalled for, especially now that we know about her...

    No offense, but I thought he was already dead. Nevertheless, RIP Al and thank you for the music.

    I agree! This should have been a Quiet Storm staple on radio. That and “I Could Never Stop Loving You” were hidden gems from the Atlantic era.

    Probably not! But it would have been cool if they segued into it following “I Wish It Would Rain”.

    50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye getting creative freedom, but it’s the 60th anniversary of his signing with Motown.

    They were comparable to the J5 when they first came out, but they were more like the Temptations when they got older. They even had internal conflicts similar to the ones the tempts had.

    They’re more on par with the Four Tops, who were also quite pigeon toed.

    I think BTS is more comparable to the Beatles than the are the Tempts. But that’s just my opinion.

    I agree! I’ve always said that while the Temptations are the superior group, NE had the better movie.

    “Since I Lost My Baby” which was actually written after Claudette had one of her miscarriages. So while the Temptations were singing about losing a woman, Smokey was writing about losing his unborn...

    After Dennis joined the group, Paul began to get more leads with the vocal tag team formula Norman Whitfield employed. He even sang lead on live performances of “My Girl”. I’m sure the added...
