    See the power you have? I went from 3% interest to "I'm All In!" I'm still grateful for those Marvelettes box sets. You guys really were amazing about asking our input on things, especially the...
  2. Can someone tell me just HOW on earth nobody saw...

    Can someone tell me just HOW on earth nobody saw the potential in "That's The Night That Love Died"?
  3. You guys have some interesting takes on things...

    You guys have some interesting takes on things Florence could have recorded. "Darling Baby" may have worked, if they dropped the key a bit. Chris Clark's strength was that husky quality that she...
  4. Oh yeah, you KNOW you're right about THAT! 😆

    Oh yeah, you KNOW you're right about THAT! 😆
  5. Norman was HOT by this time so I doubt they would...

    Norman was HOT by this time so I doubt they would have paired him with Florence. Instead, she would have gotten a succession of producers; George Gordy, Allen Story, Dean/Weatherspoon, (maybe) Ivy Jo...
  6. Great points about the other female solo artist...

    Great points about the other female solo artist already on Motown. I really wish she had remained at Motown. Yes, I know they wouldn't have pushed her records, but Motown knew how to make great...
  7. "Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart" When the Supremes went "street"

    A song that often gets brought up whenever my older brother and I talk about music is "Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart." My brother isn't really much of a Motown fan, not that he isn't, but he's...
  8. I often wondered just what that would have...

    I often wondered just what that would have sounded like, had Florence remained with Motown. Probably very much like a David Ruffin affair where Florence would have gotten shuttled to the 2nd and even...
  9. I remember being SHOCKED at hearing someone...

    I remember being SHOCKED at hearing someone playing this entire album on a radio show a few years back. I was turning the dial looking for ANYTHING different than the KaZillionth playing of "Good...
  10. SOLD. You sold me. I was on the fence, but now...

    SOLD. You sold me. I was on the fence, but now I'm just fallen off of it on the side of MUST HAVE. I appreciate too that you outlined just what goes on with getting these approved and released. The...

    O.K. I'm surprised by this. It's quite good and very unexpected. They handled "Can't Get Next To You" SURPRISINGLY well. Even the dance moves are good.
  12. I like it! I like it!

    I like it! I like it!
  13. O.K. Thanks for that and asking Cal about it!

    O.K. Thanks for that and asking Cal about it!

    That's what it would seem to me...or something for fan clubs...
  15. Hmmmmm. Sounds good but it would make for a...

    Hmmmmm. Sounds good but it would make for a pretty long commercial, unless it was edited into several shorter spots?
  16. The Velvelettes Ain't No Place Like Motown

    Was always curious about this. Was this ever intended for release or was this tied in with some kind of company-related event?
  17. Even the covers work here. The Monkees' "I'm A...

    Even the covers work here. The Monkees' "I'm A Believer" and "Last Train To Clarksville" as well as "Cherish", "Renee" and "Carpenter" are fun to listen to because they aren't overblown productions....
  18. I could easily become a hermit purely because of...

    I could easily become a hermit purely because of this blog. So many great things to read and ponder.

    One of the tunes that struck me was the Velvelettes "Let Love Live A Little Bit Longer" We...
  19. I just recently subscribed as well. What a great...

    I just recently subscribed as well. What a great site and I love the writing style. I do appreciate Marv's directing attention to these things that otherwise may be lost in the avalanche of...
  20. I agree. The group was actually much more...

    I agree. The group was actually much more versatile than most realized. They could equally pull off a pop persona like the Sups but with much more grit and soul like Martha & The Vandellas. I...
  21. I know it's been said the Marvelettes inventory...

    I know it's been said the Marvelettes inventory has been pretty much exhausted but maybe there's another cut or two from 1970...would be interesting to hear!
  22. Wow! I have this box set and it slipped by me...

    Wow! I have this box set and it slipped by me too. Generally I go for the stuff from '64 and after but this does sound really good. Gladys had such an instinct for delivery and Kat, Wanda and...
  23. This is so good! I liked this material on the...

    This is so good! I liked this material on the "Something New" album, but I had no idea they did more. This is really amazing for such a young group.
  24. Exactly. That's why it stuck in my mind that I...

    Exactly. That's why it stuck in my mind that I had read it somewhere because it was so odd. The Four Tops were MADE for that type of venue. Hopefully, someone will have some old magazine article that...
  25. Thank you for that! I really would have thought...

    Thank you for that! I really would have thought the Four Tops would have done especially well at such a place. After reading what you wrote, I did start to recall Smokey not liking the...
