    Thanks for sharing these, Carlo! I think it's curious that WDOLG, SA, and GTAGG all have their correct label logos on the cover for the period they were released, but "Dance Party" doesn't have a...

    Thanks, Bobby! Yeah, that really was a great interview. It didn't cover all of the routine stuff interviewers tended to ask. Makes me miss Mary that much more.

    Thanks, Reese! Did the '74 Anthology booklet detail that it was Ricky Owens in the photo or just one photo of many without explanation?

    Back in the '90s when I first heard The Temptations sing "Cindy," I couldn't help but wonder if the title was inspired by Miss Birdsong. Granted, I later learned the recording by The Tempts pre-dated...
