    Speaking of Tammi, Harvey Fuqua and Johnny Bristol sang background on pretty much all of the stuff they produced for her. They even appear on some Marvin & Tammi songs as well.

    Thanks for pointing this out for those wondering why this is in the Motown thread. I just tried to locate for Motown songs on YouTube, but to no avail.

    So sorry to hear about this. Dianne turned up quite a bit in some movies and TV shows in the 90s and 00s. Most notably, the Five Heartbeats. RIP to a true legend.

    IIRC Stevie and the Tempts were only on the run of shows at the Apollo. Albeit, the Tempts were only there to sing background vocals for Mary Wells.

    Totally agree with that one. Like with “You Don’t Have To Be Alone”, the studio version was at best, okay. The live version is much superior.

    I remember falling in love with this song after seeing this performance. Only to be completely underwhelmed by the studio version released three years prior. I wish...

    I’d be down for that! Even if previously released stuff would be included.

    Bobby Taylor sang background vocals on the stuff he produced on the Jackson 5. Ashford & Simpson also did backing vocals and Valerie usually played keyboards as well.

    I doubt that there’s going to be part 2. Otherwise it would have been issued as part 1. I guess there wasn’t much left of Motown’s female roster. The Supremes, Marvelletes, and Vandellas all had...

    I couldn’t tell you. This books been on my want list for 14 years. You’re lucky you have a copy. Can’t even find stills on the internet.

    I see what you mean! The song isn’t on par with “My Girl” or “Since I Lost My Baby. But it’s not “let’s throw it in the vault until the copyright is about to expire” bad either. To me it’s a nice...

    Yep, he’s adopted alright. Just like Sam Cooke didn’t father Aretha’s son Edward! His performance at his mother’s funeral was so okay it wasn’t funny.

    Ivy Jo is In This Bag, 7 down 4 to go!

    With the early release of MU’69, three songs intended for Ivy Jo’s album were included. Slowly but surely, we’ll have the whole album. Possibly with MU’70.

    Change in music trends! By the mid 80s live bands were being replaced by drum machines and midi synthesizers.
