  1. I still remember the day I bought the "Where"...

    I still remember the day I bought the "Where" album and got it home. Couldn't stop staring at the cover, especially Flo. I TORE UP THIS SONG! I still love this song. Maybe it wasn't the right song at...
  2. I love these recollections of these two songs by...

    I love these recollections of these two songs by all of you! Nice to hear that you even recall the stations that were playing these songs.

    I always contend that the Marvelettes career at Motown...
  3. I can DEFINITELY relate. I was born in '66 so for...

    I can DEFINITELY relate. I was born in '66 so for the most part, I think you and I had pretty much the same experiences. I have VERY distinct memories of lots of Motown being played at our house. I...
  4. The first time I heard The Supremes really...

    The first time I heard The Supremes really harmonize was when I hear the singing some of those standards. I was blown away to say the least. Listening to a great deal of their hit recordings, you'd...
  5. Coming from Etta James, that is like high praise!...

    Coming from Etta James, that is like high praise! If she felt they were capable of doing more soulful material, that's like WOW! Really nice to hear her praising their voices.
  6. Thanks Marv for that insight on peoples' feelings...

    Thanks Marv for that insight on peoples' feelings about these Motown records at the time. I've heard some old WKNR radio broadcasts and it's nice to know they supported Motown so much. Did you...
  7. That's so great to hear! I remember reading one...

    That's so great to hear! I remember reading one on of the older threads here that there were areas where the Marvelettes were really strong- maybe D.C. was one of those spots I read about.
  8. Your recollections are really interesting to me...

    Your recollections are really interesting to me because you mentioned buying the Greatest Hits LP in 1966. So even though the group may not have had some of their latest tunes on Top 40 where you...
  9. Hi Nabob. I love reading your memories about...

    Hi Nabob. I love reading your memories about "I'll Keep Holding On." I think this song is why I have some hearing loss in one ear- and I'm not joking! I heard this on the Anthology album and I...
  10. Thanks Motown Eddie. This is exactly what I'm...

    Thanks Motown Eddie. This is exactly what I'm looking for. You were there on the scene, so to speak, and hearing from people who were there when these songs first came out gives a certain kind of...
  11. For those who were around "Back In The Day": The Marvelettes- "I'll Keep Holding On"

    On the Soulful Detroit Forum I had asked for opinions from members who were record buyers/radio listeners when Major Lance's "Too Hot To Hold" was first released. Another couple of songs I've always...
  12. "I Promise To Wait My Love" is one of those songs...

    "I Promise To Wait My Love" is one of those songs that I really WANT to like but just can't. When you listen to it, it has a lot going for it to be sure, but when I first heard it on the purple...
  13. Wow, another good one. I just may have to get my...

    Wow, another good one. I just may have to get my hands on a copy of this LP. The structure/vocal melody of the verses reminds of me Marvin Gaye's unreleased "It's A Desperate Situation"
  14. This is really nice! Now, if I had a choice...

    This is really nice! Now, if I had a choice between buying a sandwich and this 45? I'd probably go with the 45! (I could stand to lose a few pounds anyway)
  15. That man, on that day, really made a huge...

    That man, on that day, really made a huge impression on me. It still (corny as it sounds to say) warms my heart to remember all the beautiful things he said about Whitney.
  16. Makes a lot of sense and something I hadn't...

    Makes a lot of sense and something I hadn't thought about. The Tempts had the mulit-lead thing going, so their popularity didn't necessarily depend on one stand out star. The Supremes were fueled by...

    https://youtu.be/XRwTz-JHCVQ Here's Major Lance on Shindig! Backed by the Shindig house band, The Blossoms and The Wellingtons
  18. I think this was an A side. When Major performed...

    I think this was an A side. When Major performed this on "Shindig!" they gave it a nice build up. That's the only reason I ended up liming the tune.

    So this is nice, arr&bee. This is what I was...
  19. If you want to know anything about a Motown...

    If you want to know anything about a Motown artist recording a Motown song, save this site: http://www.dftmc.info/
  20. Thanks! Now I feel like I wasn't too "way out"...

    Thanks! Now I feel like I wasn't too "way out" with that line of thought.

    And yep, same for me when it came to how I reacted with Whitney and Michael. Whitney's death just hurt me to the heart. ...

    clink, clink. the sound of me tossing in my two cents.

    For me, pure and simple, the reason why people get more emotionally involved in the story of Florence and not so much the story of David has...
  22. Did I miss something? It's not even good...

    Did I miss something?

    It's not even good animation. When the filmed image of the young girl changes into a cartoon, it looks like a really bad SNL parody skit.

    Or is it that mine are old eyes...
  23. This illustrates the problem music groups like...

    This illustrates the problem music groups like The Supremes had to deal with. If you're in the "Superstar" catagory, there is a sort of expectation to constantly progress forward, come up with "THE...
  24. So it really seems nobody was getting all excited...

    So it really seems nobody was getting all excited about this tune. To be honest, the ONLY thing that got me into Major Lance was when I had bought some episodes of the old show, "Shindig!" They...
  25. Ok, that's interesting how you mention the bluesy...

    Ok, that's interesting how you mention the bluesy sound and the minor key thing about this song. Maybe that is one of the reasons I do enjoy it. I don't know why, but songs in minor-keys appeal to...
