    "Since I've Lost You"--great lead vocal from Dennis Edwards. Not only my favorite Tempts B-side, but my favorite post-David Ruffin track by the Tempts.

    This song was originally a jump blues written and recorded by B.B. King in 1953. B.B.'s version featured a prominent horn section. The Four Tops' version has a very ingenious arrangement which...

    The full title of Shorty's Ace Records CD is "Here Comes Shorty Long. . .The Complete Motown Stereo Masters". Apparently, "Call On Me" was never mixed to stereo and that's why it wasn't included. ...

    No Sam Cooke? No Jackie Wilson? No Otis Redding? Puh-leeze! That is truly one of the most bogus lists I have ever seen!

    Joe Stubbs was briefly a member of both the Contours (he sang lead on "Just a Little Misunderstanding") and the Originals (he sang lead on "Goodnight Irene"). Before Motown, he was a member of the...

    I wouldn't give Ike Turner too much credit for writing "Rocket 88." It's a pretty blatant rip-off of Jimmy Liggins' "Cadillac Boogie" that was released several years earlier.

    “Make My Water Boil,” a.k.a. “Loving You Has Been So Wonderful” - David Ruffin (with a lot of help from Stevie Wonder) (Motown Solo Albums Vol 2)

    There were articles written about Lonnie in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times and New York Times, along with various other publications, when he passed last month. When I lived in Chicago...

    I've always loved this album--it was one of the first LPs I ever bought. Let's not forget some other great tracks that eventually were released which, I believe, came from the Temptations Sing...

    A garage band from Ohio billed as the Human Beinz had a Top 10 pop hit with their cover of this tune in 1967.

    Almost the same thing happened with another Isley Brother's tune titled "Respectable."...

    I guess it depends on what period of Motown you are considering. In my opinion, both Yvonne Fair and Bettye LaVette could easily be considered "gritty belters."

    I think Stax agreed to such terms because those terms were buried in the fine print. It's obvious to me that Jerry Wexler and the folks at Atlantic Records had a lot slicker lawyers than Jim Stewart...

    Roger, although Atlantic Records has the rights to nearly all of Otis Redding's Stax recordings, there are a few of his recordings that do not belong to Atlantic. Basically, these are recordings...

    Thanks to everyone who responded to my question.

    Special thanks to Tamla617 for scanning the extra sheet for Volume 6 and sending it to me.
  17. Question About Complete Motown Singles Volume 6

    I just noticed that my copy of the Complete Motown Singles Volume 6 does not have the extra sheet rubber cemented onto the back. All of the other sets in the series that I have in my collection have...

    Thanks for clearing that up, Jon. All these years I've been laboring under the impression that "Cigarettes and Coffee" was written for Otis. Still, Otis may have learned about the song from Jerry...

    You're not nuts, Phillies/Motown Gary--my copy came from Amazon UK! My daughter ordered it for me from them and had it shipped to the States. I probably would not have done it that way, because I...

    I remember seeing a poster for a concert with Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding. As I recall, it was billed as kind of a north vs south competition. The date was in December 1967 and Otis died in a...
