    Great post RanRan. I had forgotten how enjoyable 'Don't take it away' is. It's not a single to my ears, but I would have put it on the WDOLG album in place of Run Run Run. Which I think is painful.

    Report back after listening and give us your review mowest!

    For me, Martha & The Vandellas version is the best. How in the world did it remain unreleased for so long? I played it to a friend who isn't particularly into Motown music and he assumed it was a hit...

    For us Brits, this album was bang on the nail. This album showcased the Diana Ross that the British public had loved for years. Both the music and the way she presented herself. I remember watching...

    Both these songs are so beautifully simple. Yet this medley manages to complicate them with over-production and over-singing.
    This is only my opinion, but I find this excruciating to listen to. Just...

    Unfortunately this link isn't available to us in Europe. Is there any way of sharing the content here?

    This performance by Diana would make the perfect bookend to her career if she chose to stop now. It was absolute perfection. Her voice, her performance and most of all the interplay with Mr Gordy. It...

    I think this is an interesting point. Tamla Motown in the U.K were making their own decisions on single releases around this time, and getting reasonable hits out of tracks that never got a chance in...

    Thanks for posting this, Jobeterob.
    I'm certainly with Adam and 'Heatwave'. For me that track is the birth of the 'Motown Sound'.

    Aaaarrrg! I managed about 30 seconds of this. Was this an interview or an out-squawking competition?.

    Claudette is such a refined Lady. After all the years, she still refers to Berry Gordy as Mr. Gordy.
    Duke was a pleasure to listen to, though the cursing surprised me a little.

    I watched a trailer for Motown 60. Honestly, if it hadn't had Motown in the title, I wouldn't have had a clue this was about my favourite record label. It left me cold.
  13. The only thing I'd change about a Diana Ross...

    The only thing I'd change about a Diana Ross album is the fact we haven't had one. For years.
    What a waste of time and talent. All the music we could have had ��
  14. This truly is a stunning recording. The lyrics,...

    This truly is a stunning recording. The lyrics, the production and the vocals combine to make this undoubtedly one of Kim's finest recordings. I would agree with the previous post. It defies...

    'MOTOWN DID IT FIRST' is no more or less a claim than 'THE SOUND OF YOUNG AMERICA'

    It's just a soundbite that 'bigs' up Motown.

    And why not?

    Why use an old picture? Is she in denial about ageing? She shouldn't be. She looks amazing today.
    It makes me think...have there actually been ANY studio shots of Diana in the last decade (s)? ...

    I'm intrigued to know the story behind the 1974 album. From what I can find online this was never issued in the U.S.
    Does anyone know how and why this was a European only release?
  18. At...

    At long....................................................................long last!

    I've been waiting for DECADES for these albums to issued on CD.

    Odd that there are titles in this reissue series that just get issued over and over in Japan. Why GK&The Pips Standing Ovation when it is still available from the last round of releases? I wish some...

    I made my own Dean & Weatherspoon CD (yes, physical) compilation up recently. That team combined great lyrics with great melodies. It surprised me how many gems they came up with. Their music was...

    'All Of My Life' was a single in the U.K in May 1974.

    It reached No.9 in the charts, so is considered a hit single here in Britain.

    More than any other Motown artist, finding a 'new' Martha Reeves & The Vandellas track on a new release gets me the most excited. I'm still loving ' I'm So Glad It's Twilight Time' from Motown...

    After the relevance of 'Love Child', this knockoff follow up is so contrived it's almost a joke. Only the production values and Diana's voice have any credibility, I.m.o.

    On a slight side note, I happened to listen to Brenda Holloway's version of this song just yesterday. It practically stopped me breathing! Lol. So haunting. So beautifully sung. It's one of my...

    It's seems natural that on the back of the dance hit 'Hitch Hike', Motown would structure a dance party album on Marvin. It was exactly the same with Smokey & The Miracles and their 'Doin' Mickey's...
