    Great to read about your background Robb and it's good that you're able to recall so much (and pass it on to folks here). You mention that "many of the remaining unused...

    Posted this elsewhere but truly it belongs on this forum. I've been enjoying this track more and more recently and it appears on the Barrett Strong Complete Motown Collection CD.

    I'll have a look in the archives and hopefully find the thread you refer to as that seems like it would be ideal to have a comprehensive list of pre-Motown Berry.

    One of the Barrett Strong tracks I've most enjoyed "Tell All Your Friends" is actually listed as by Gino Parks and Barrett Strong. Gino also gets a mention above, but this track must be a bit of an...

    It's a brilliant song and I love The Originals. Co-incidentally also on YouTube is the song "Fifty Years" by The Originals from their "California Sunset" album written and produec by Lamont Dozier.

    House Of Beauty / HOB Records

    In some quarters HOB is listed as a gospel subsidiary of Motown.

    Seem to have a couple of recognisable names on their records early on - Herman Griffin & The Rayber Voices, Voices of Tabernacle,...

    Because Berry sold it. I think he felt that was the best way to keep it going as he could no longer compete with the much larger, non-independent companies. That was for $61m in 1988 and later on,...

    Amos Milburn - Darling How Long

    Whilst not being a huge fan of blues I found myself drawn to this beautiful song by Amos Milburn. The song predates his Motown period by a good few years but it was re-recorded at Hitsville and...

    Why not enjoy another lovely recording from The Originals?

    One of the greatest joys in life is listening to Eddie Holland on "Little Miss Ruby". I just love that. Does that period get a mention in the book?

    Nice post. The song started well but personally I struggle with Liz's voice. Clearly she has something and her voice is clear (as demonstrated here) but she's just too shrill for my liking.

    "High Energy" and "Let Yourself Go" are not on the CD.

    Great to get this sort of insight and I love finding out more about these tracks - wonder which other tracks were started at LA that time.

    I've not read the book and I'm no expert on HDH but these were young people and many of the guys fancied Diana by all accounts so maybe the fallout was to do with that since Brian Holland was keen on...

    But hold on, "I Second That Emotion" was a hit for Diana Ross & The Supremes and The Temptations - which was produced by Frank Wilson - so where was that recorded?

    This one surely deserves another outing on the Forum. Some nice harmonies on this Doowoply done tune but I understand Smokey was turned down by the Browns at Fortune.
