    This really sucks! Even though she was only a background vocalist, I still hold her and rest of the Sweethearts in high regard for their contributions to the Philly Sound. RIP Ms. Benton!

    If Marv were here for this release, he’d be dancing a jig right now.

    Agreed, but I feel like it rebounded somewhat in the 90s. However, after Luther and Gerald died, what little spark it had burned out.

    I hope they give Alex Faust and Laura Coates [[the two people Alex REALLY wanted to succeed him) a week or two to host the show.

    I got my copy shortly before it sold out, because so many other releases went out of print around the same time. I was concerned the same would happen with “This Is The Story”, and I was right....

    I think “Respect” should have BEEN released on streaming. Making it a theater only release was an awful move IMO. Many like myself, prefer having the option to enjoy theatrical release at the...

    While I’m disappointed LaVar Burton didn’t get the job, It’s somewhat understandable. He’s in his early sixties and I’m sure they wanted to hire someone who could helm the show for at least 25 years....

    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”.

    Just saw the news. Thanks for your contributions to the sound of southern soul. I know Aretha is welcoming you into her heavenly backing band.

    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.
