    16260
    Sorry. I meant no offence to you personally. The last thing I want to do is create bad feeling between people. Yes, it was a bit tongue in cheek. I've been on this forum since almost its...

    16257
    A "cover version" of a song CAN'T be recorded 2 years after the original is out, because if it did wait that long, it couldn't possibly cover up the original's access to markets, and reap...

    It didn't get ANY airplay in Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Detroit, Indianapolis, Des Moines, Los Angeles, San Diego, or San Francisco Bay Area, as far as I remember.

    Record companies often record a larger amount of recordings by an artist or group, than they can release at one time, and release them periodically, after the previous release's sales has...

    Clearly, "Why Don't They Let Us Fall In Love" (really The Ronettes), and "Home Of The Brave" by Bonnie and The Treasures, should have been released on Philles Records. The Lovelites' "When I...

    Here's a photo from a You-Tube video. It appears that it is NOT an original Chess pressing from early 1960, but, rather, a facsimile re-issue (late issue of previously unreleased) or bootleg...

    16235
    I've looked through literally millions of 45s between 1953 and 1995, and much of that was 1960 and later, and I never saw that Chess release (1770). I've seen it listed on many record label...

    I also like what he did on Thelma Records, and his own Red Cap Records before he got to Motown. He was a talented man. I appreciate it very much that he was a member of SDF, and posted here...

    16227
    I would have loved to get "Chapel of Love" by Darlene Love best, then, Ronettes' second, - both much, much more than the poppish Dixie Cups' version. But I'd have bought all 3.

    16218
    These Top 100 lists always have much too much later Motown cuts (e.g. after 1967). My Top 100 would have none later than 1967, and most would be between 1962 and 1965. But, everyone knows...

    H.B. put out many instrumental cuts under his name (as a band/orchestra conductor). So the question I have is whether or not these cuts are instrumentals, or he, himself, singing.
