    I have a great copy of this performance in my collection. I am amazed sometimes that Motown had all of these talented artists under contract and wouldn't or couldn't do anything with them.

    I have noticed that in recent years, Mary has a more controlled approached to songs and performances. Her voice is still in very good shape. She could do a very credible neo-soul type album. I...

    One other thing about Etta James and Bill Withers (other than I just learned that they were both born in 1938). Their childhoods and the way they came up caused them both to mature much younger than...
