    Yes: both "I'll Keep Holding On" & "Danger Heartbreak Dead Ahead" were mid-charting hits (with "Holding" at R&B#11/Pop#34 & "Danger" at R&B#11/Pop#61 according to Billboard).

    I wouldn't hear The Marvelettes' "I'll Keep Holding On" until I picked up their Marvelettes Anthology LP but I do remember hearing "Danger Heartbreak Dead Ahead" when it first came out in '65 and...

    While "I Promise To Wait My Love" has great performances by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas & The Funk Bros., I feel the same way that other posters on this thread feel; "Forget Me Not" should've been...

    Until they book Darlene Love to sing "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)", I'm not watching any of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting specials on NBC. Looking forward to seeing Darlene on...

    And here's a whole album that I thought was "meh" the first time I heard it (but grew to love after getting the 'deluxe edition'); The Supremes-Supremes A Go-Go.

    One that comes to mind is Kim Weston's "Love Me All The Way".

    Great performances from Dionne & Chuck but the song, "Anymore", is mediocre (after hearing it for the first time, I see why it was held in the vault until Chuck's Big New York Soul: Wand Records...

    I'm not sure if this clip has been posted on this forum before but it is a good look at a vintage DRATS concert.

    And reasons that David Ruffin wasn't missed by Temptations fans include Dennis Edwards. He was a powerhouse singer who capably filled David's shoes (and then some). Also David's solo career...

    I had forgotten that Flo signed away her rights to use The Supremes name in exchange for money. Like hiring her husband to be her manager, it was a big mistake that stopped her planned solo career...

    I say that H-D-H were thinking of The Crystals' classic "Da Doo Run Run" when they wrote "Run Run Run" for The Supremes. Although it doesn't have the density of a Phil Spector production, it's easy...

    Hopefully that will stop these fakers in their tracks. Thanks for the news Heikki.

    It's likely the lack of knowledge about the music business rather than paranoia that led Flo to use her husband to manage her solo career (sadly when she was dropped from ABC Records, she did become...

    And just one more thing; David was able to use the name, Temptations, to help promote his solo career (while Flo was forbidden to use the Supremes' name to get her unsuccessful solo career off the...

    One reason for this is because unlike Florence Ballard, David Ruffin did enjoy two major hits, "My Whole World Ended (The Moment You Left Me)" & "Walk Away From Love", after leaving The Temptations. ...

    IMHO, "HDYSIDLYA" is just an average song partially redeemed by Freda Payne's vocal work (and some Motown Sound influences in the music). Never heard it before so thanks for sharing TomatoTom.

    Thanks for the link P/MG. And yes, "Winter Blues" does amount to a long Hal Blaine drum solo. No wonder it's never been reissued (at least to my knowledge).
