    This Willie Jones and The Chimes cut sounds like 1959 Miracles:


    The flute solo sounds like Motown's Beans Bowles. In 1959 most of Motown's workers were not on salary, but paid for the individual tasks they performed.

    Robb, now that's interesting to me! I put up a post recently on Maurice Jackson but little response. In fact you were the only person to respond. I am surprised to learn from your post he had his own label and issued the Monique recording, created in Detroit, even though he is the master of the Chicago sound....

    Does anyone know berry gordy or Motown in general felt about these songs?

    We’re they thinking “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”?

    Or “they’re stealing our sound!”?

    Three from Gamble - Huff on Neptune

    We're Only Human - Bunny Sigler & Cindy Scott
    Sounds like Marvin & Tammi's "Your Precious Love"

    Conquer The World Together - Bunny & Cindy
    Sounds Like Marvin & Tammi's "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing"

    Great Big Liar - Bunny Sigler
    Pushing it I know, but if you take away the Philly strings and if the female backing singers were less strident, it would sound like Marvin Gaye singing to the band track of the Temptations' "Runaway Child Running Wild".
