    Actually, the network was broadcasting the film as part of a study of the various New Waves in film. It was really interesting. French New Wave then the British New Wave and so on. Films focusing on...
  2. The Knack And How To Get It: Rita Tushingham & Mary Wells

    I just saw this film for the first time yesterday. Great surprise to see a scene featuring the great Rita Tushingham, nude in bed except for a few strategically placed albums. Well now. To her right...
  3. I was disappointed when I first bought this album...

    I was disappointed when I first bought this album but grew to like it more over time. That is due to the sound of utter fun and joy heard here that others have talked about. In an odd way, it's...
  4. Good one! I hadn't thought about her!

    Good one! I hadn't thought about her!
  5. This one isn't really a permanent name change...

    This one isn't really a permanent name change though; Motown was just trying to fool people into thinking the Darnells were an entirely different group on one record. Most people knew better.
  6. Not sure either of these will be appropriate but...

    Not sure either of these will be appropriate but the Marvelettes had a beautiful, though unreleased song, "Little Girls Grow Up." The story line goes from childhood to a father walking his daughter...
  7. I too prefer it over The Composer but would it...

    I too prefer it over The Composer but would it have been able to compete on the charts against the ever-changing sounds of Rock and music in general? The problem was that at one time all you needed...

    As Smokey sang in one his songs with the Miracles, "Point It Out," and you pointed out an astonishing fact. Yeah, I had to stop and think about how the Temptations have escaped the trap of being...

    This is getting really good.



    Years ago, I recall listening to the stereo mix of Jimmy Ruffin's "As Long As There Is L-O-V-E Love" and being startled at the absolute clarity of the sound on...

    There are people who have a gift for discerning different musicians' styles and signatures. Much like a jazz aficionado can tell you exact what musicians were playing with Dave Brubeck on any given...
  11. Ahhh! HE'S the one who does that thing where he...

    Ahhh! HE'S the one who does that thing where he hits the snare and follows it up with a strike on the tom, a sort of TIK-BOOM. Stevie Wonder's "Hey Love" opens with this signature and it's peppered...
  12. This is the most incredibly bizarre thing....

    This is the most incredibly bizarre thing. Originally, when I wrote this, it veered off onto this very subject about Motown using old, pre-'64 recordings for B-sides. I even listed the exact same...
  13. Yes, this one is very unusual in how there's a...

    Yes, this one is very unusual in how there's a fair bit of modulation going on during the choruses but always returns to the original key for the verses. I'd love to have been there as they were...
  14. The Marvelettes "Paper Boy" "Please Mr. Postman" clone?

    https://youtu.be/Lq4n4Dgs3pk

    On another thread, the subject of Motown B-sides came up. I was thinking about this one by the Marvelettes, "Paper Boy." I recall being kinda ticked that Motown would...
  15. I honestly don't know if I'm being biased because...

    I honestly don't know if I'm being biased because I'm such a Motown fanatic, but I really don't think any other record company in the 60s consistently- CONSISTENTLY- had B-sides that were as stellar...
  16. Lefty, I'm blown away by all the comments on...

    Lefty, I'm blown away by all the comments on this. I appreciate your take on it all, in ways I hadn't considered: "timral" and "rhythmic"- the relationship between the drumset and congas. Years ago,...
  17. I really appreciate the input from everyone on...

    I really appreciate the input from everyone on this and your statement is definitely illuminating- I didn't know there was an industry standard regarding recording speeds and such, yet I shouldn't be...
  18. Sigh. I had kinda mentally filed away the whole...

    Sigh. I had kinda mentally filed away the whole "why didn't Motown give Flo more leads" thing. After awhile, I just accepted that's the was it was. But this thread, this song, DAMN! Flo really could...
  19. I was going to say something about that...

    I was going to say something about that watermark... what in the world?

    Yeah, this is extremely fast to the point that at times it almost looks like a parody you'd see on SNL. I'm reminded too of...
  20. The more I learn about the Velvelettes, the more...

    The more I learn about the Velvelettes, the more I admire them. My feeling is the reason why they're still together is that they were always, first and foremost all about putting family first. They...
  21. More than likely, you and Paul are on target with...

    More than likely, you and Paul are on target with this being deliberate.
  22. Funny you should mention this song. For years I...

    Funny you should mention this song. For years I heard both "Can You Love A Poor Boy" and "Oh Be My Love" as "twin songs". They don't necessarily sound alike, but there is something in these two songs...
  23. Hi Paul, I was hoping you'd see this one. Funny...

    Hi Paul, I was hoping you'd see this one. Funny you mention the Stax drumming style because I made that same observation when I wrote the comments on this song for the video. I do appreciate your...
  24. Sound Engineering Question: "The Miracles Oh Be My Love"

    Hopefully, Bradburger will see this as he always seems to pick right up on what I'm going on about. From the Away We A Go-Go album, this has always been one of my favorites. There is something...
  25. I give 'em points for going with "The Hunter Gets...

    I give 'em points for going with "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game." Even among the 20 gazillion and one Motown compilations that ever have been, that's a song that never crops up.
