    Love love love Bird in the hand! Kind of like the Velvelettes do the Marvelettes!

  2. #52
    I had just started college when this one came out and I wanted to meet these girls! High Inergy and "Lovin' Fever"


  3. #53
    The Jackson 5 - "I Wanna Be Where You Are" The rhythm track to this one is very sophisticated for a "kiddie" record. LOL


  4. #54
    We loved this one........The Marvelettes - "My Baby Must Be A Magician" (Nov. 1967).


  5. #55
    I don't know how much it sold, but this was his big one after leaving Motown. From 1978 Eddie Kendricks - "Intimate Friends"


  6. #56
    I use to hear this one several times a day in Spring/Summer 1985 on Detroit radio. Since then it just does not get played. The Four Tops and "Sexy Ways"


  7. #57
    I can't even describe how good this one was.........Jr. Walker and the Allstars and "Walk in the Night"

    I remember the Temptations' singles during the late nineties. When I first heard "Stay", from the sampling of their own "My Girl", the Temptations-styled harmonies, to Ron Tyson's Temptations-classed falsetto, I guessedly joked "Temptations?", before the contemporary soul station did say "Temptations", then my eyes bulged.

    While "Stay" still continues to maintain regular enough rotation to some contemporary soul stations even today, as well as it being included in Temptations Collections as its "They're Still Around" representative, then it was followed up with "This Is My Promise". I forgot if it was led by Theo Peoples or Terry Weeks, but I absolutely fell in love with its toasting serenade, and pure class of appreciation towards the lady in which the subject of serenading.

    "Stay" stayed continuing in rotation, but "This Is My Promise" for the most part, remained in 1998/1999.

    Ngroove, another great pick. You just made me remember a song they did back around 1995 that I really liked:Temptations- "Some Enchanting Evening"

    I enjoyed listening to that again. , barely a radio hit or chart performer ( #47 pop, #93 soul), so you had to be a clubber back then to really know of the song . But if you were , you knew it inside and out .... it was huge in the discos and topped that chart @#1. (Shame on Motown to let this one get away)

    If you bought the commercial 12" you got as the flip Jermaine' LETS BE YOUNG TONIGHT.

    If you were lucky enough to get the promo 12" , Motown provided you with this song (#90 soul):



    lushly orchestrated , strongly Philly ,kind of Spinners sounding to me
    in fact any minute I expect Philippe Wynne to join in !

    ps Marv I think Eddie's INTIMATE FRIENDS was his last hurrah for Motown. I liked listening to that . Eddie had great pacing , not afraid to sing a tune for as long as the tune takes.

  12. #62
    Motown in the late 70s had some really good tracks out there. This one by Bonnie Pointer" - Free me From my Freedom Tie me To a Tree" bad girl Bonnie, bad girl! LOL!!!


  13. #63
    Classic! Jimmy Ruffin "I've Passed This Way Before"


  14. #64
    Say what you want, Jermaine Jackson produced some really fine music.....Jermaine Jackson - "Don't Take It Personal"


  15. #65
    Memories, memories from this one. Ashford & Simpson - "It Seems To Hang On" from the Fall of 1978 y'all!


  16. #66

    DeBarge's "Time Will Reveal" was a big hit (at #1 R&B and #18 Pop) in 1983. And speaking of DeBarge, Bunny DeBarge's "Save The Best For Me (Best Of Your Lovin')" (from 1987) is a better example of a great but rarely heard track.

    A couple years ago, during one of my daily trips to my area's big local antique mall, at one point, the place was playing a virtual back-to-back-to-back Motown marathon. One of the songs played, that I truly found a positively interesting gesture at remembering it enough to play in inclusion with the top twenties, Shorty Long's "Function At The Junction".

    This Stevie Wonder 45 plug side didn't do too well in the charts in the mid 60's ... so the 45 was flipped by radio DJ's & the other side did better .. by then though it had affected the release plans of Amy Records who retitled Lou Ragland's upcoming 45 track as "I Travel Alone" ... this is a bit like PLACE IN THE SUN ...

    I remember this record most because of the noticeable change in Stevie's voice. It became deeper and smooth as he grew up. Thank you for this memory.

    This one is like the quintessential Motown recording. It has all of the elements of the "Motown Sound". The Four Tops and "I'll Turn To Stone"!
