    Just a little thing, but the vibraphone just going, going, going, ding, ding, ding- I LOVE how that thing sounds on this, especially when you hear it with the Earl's bluesy, middle-of-the-night organ...
  2. You are right. The Choker Campbell album was all...

    You are right. The Choker Campbell album was all original recordings. Motown songs played with Big Band arrangements. Some of the cuts worked really well with the full-on brass
    arrangement. I love...

    OH YEAH! Excellent thread, Gary! I've been working some overtime at work, coming home later than usual. I want to wait til Friday night or Saturday when I can really relax, take my sweet time...

    It goes beyond that and actually, the differences in stereo and mono mixes don't really play a big part with the CD transfers.

    As alanh mentioned, the distortion problem is especially plaguing...
  5. I don't think the issue was with the original...

    I don't think the issue was with the original recordings. My feeling was the first round of CD releases just sounded brittle and harsh perhaps due to the fact that CDs were new at the time. Motown...

    Yikes! Been awhile since I checked back here! GREAT LIST!!!!! I will be checking out these books on ebay and Amazon. "Out Of His Head" sounds particularly interesting...

    Thank you Gary!

    Jimmy Ruffin- I'll Say Forever My Love, Farewell Is A Lonely Sound

    Marvelettes- Now Is The Time For Love, I Need Someone, When You're Young And In Love (alternate mix featured on the Forever More...

    How cool that this isn't just Jimmy singing to the recorded album version, but an entirely new music backing. I always felt this could have been a fantastic single.
  11. That makes PERFECT sense!

    This is an excellent pre-Motown song.

    What I like about this being able to hear the Tops' backing vocals so clearly. A lot more going on than you can really tell on the fully mixed singles/album tracks.

    That's VERY interesting and pretty cool! Funny how some performers rate higher across the board in some countries than here in the U.S.

    This song fascinates me because I can't believe that in the atmosphere of what everyone believed to be the innocence of the early/mid 60s', anyone involved with this would think this song could have...

    This is one of those very rare occasions where a thread jumps completely off the subject and yet it turns into something really, REALLY good. WHAT? I'm super envious of you that Ronnie Spector made a...

    Gary, I have the books "He's A Rebel: Phil Spector--Rock And Roll's Legendary Producer" by Mark Ribowski and "Tearing Down The Wall Of Sound: The Rise And Fall Of Phil Spector" by Mick Brown....
  18. You REALLY do know the Philles story! I think you...

    You REALLY do know the Philles story! I think you would do it more justice than I ever could! I'm intrigued by it all, but still a bit new as far as things I've read. I have to say, when I first...
  19. If you guys do start a discussion about Phil and...

    If you guys do start a discussion about Phil and The Wall Of Sound, let me know. I've been reading two books on this subject. VERY fascinating to say the least. Sonny Bono of all people tried to...

    I LOVE IT!!!! I hadn't really thought about the spoken part but you've got me all broad smiles here! Let's hope the world is a lot more woke about this stuff!

    The album was released in the U.S. with two covers. From what I had read in a book, the art department re-did the cover to make they type more readable. For years I had never known there was a 2nd...

    Well now, I've been turned onto something new, and I like it. I like that it has a sort of "urban" sound to it. This really points the direction Florence could have taken and done very well with if...

    See, Milven? This is turning into something fun after all!

    I appreciate that, RanRan! I do always enjoy your posts, VERY MUCH. I was sort of saying that half tongue-in-cheek, but also half seriously, so I'm glad to see your response and am enjoying seeing...

    I like your thoughts on this very much. I was born just as all of this was happening, but I do know my father told me there were issues with being black and being hired for jobs around the time of...
