    I agree. I like it almost as much as The Four Tops' version, and it is an interesting alternative to it.

    19056
    I am and always have been, as a big a Carolyn Crawford fan as there is. I LOVE this song. It's a "100" for me, and my second favourite by her [[far better than ANY Supremes' song). I love...

    1) Riley's Rivieras' lead singer was David Booth, and the other two were Leonard Stewart, and Leonard Gillespie. The name, Leonard Stewart rings a bell with me. I think he may have been in...

    I'll answer my own question. They were an African-American trio. Here's their photo. Do any of you old-time Detroiters remember them? I remember seeing their name on venue appearance...

    That's by design. Evolution of the group means their early recordings, when they were developing their style. "That's When The Tears Start" and "Good, Good, Lovin'" and their other Loma...

    Didn't "Bring Him Back" chart nationally or regionally? I have no idea because I never listened to the Pop radio stations. But I heard it on the Soul stations in most cities, and seen many,...

    19010
    Yes that sounds like The Vandellas. Martha has a very strong voice and unique tone. You can always hear her through [[and above) the group as a whole. It's the same backing as Saundra had.

    This sounds like a late 1962 or early 1963 Motown cut. Probably several Motown musicians playing on it, and I've heard that songwriter, Dorothy Pierce, was an alias for Holland, Dozier, and...
