    Hi guys!

    I'm new here - and a lifelong fan of soul/funk/motown/Northern Soul...

    I work in the business, and I'm constantly looking to grow my own knowledge base. I'm a 5th generation Detroiter - recently back from LA, and it seems like you guys all know more than pretty much anyone when it comes to this type of music.

    Looking forward to learning and contributing!

    Jacob Nathan

    Hi Everyone,
    Robb Klein here,
    I started with SDF in early-mid 2002. I started collecting records in 1953, liking R&B, Blues, Jazz and Gospel music. I loved Soul music as it developed. I worked for Motown during most of the '70s (1973-79), working on unreleased oldies projects. I was co-owner of Airwave, Airwave International and Altair Records from 1980-1985. I provide input into Ace and Kent CD projects, providing rare records to remaster, scans of labels, and help writing the CDs' booklets. I am also a cartoonist, Disney comic book writer and artist and film animator.

    Glad to see Vonnie, Mary G and Soul Sister back on SDF!

    Welcome Newbies!

    Hey Rob! As with many in this "closed society" of a forum community, I had no idea of your background. Cool!

    Hi Everyone,

    So nice to finally be posting on the forum. I'm 28, live in Chicago, and work as a freelance writer, and a clerk in a library. I grew up listening to Motown on the oldies channel to and from school with my mom. I bought my first Motown cd, a Supremes greatest hits album and things took off from there. The Supremes still remain my favorite Motown act, and Scherrie Payne my favorite Supreme. I'm really looking forward to the great conversations on the board.

    All Best,
    Patrick

    Being a big Supremes collector, you are sure to see a lot of Supremes related posts on the Motown Forum

    Hi, all!! 😀

    I'm new here. I have always loved Motown, but up until recently I didn't even know it. Luckily, I am currently on journey of what you might call "Motown discovery" Sadly (and frustratingly!) the company had just celebrated its 40th anniversary by the time I was born, so I don't know a lot from first-hand experience, only what I can read online. I joined here for that very reason: to learn more and more and more about Motown!

    Thanks!! 😀

    Hi there. I'm a (very) long-time lurker, but only now have I mustered up the courage to join. My name is Emile, and I'm from S. Ontario. I live about an hour's drive from Detroit on the Michigan/Ontario border. Ever since I was a kid (I'm 41 currently), I remember listening to the oldies station from Detroit, and it gave me a healthy love and appreciation for the Motown Sound. I'm constantly seeking out the new and amazing that have been released from the depths of Motown's vaults. I enjoy pretty much all the Motown groups, but the Supremes, in all their various incarnations, are my #1 Motown group of all time. One of my nicknames I go by is DJ Moch -- I'm an amateur mixer, I dabble in my spare time, and I have tried my hand at remixing some Motown classics.

    Looking forward to learn more about the label (and groups) that I love.

    Emile (aka DJ Moch)

    Welcome Emile! Hope you have a great time (as I have done)

    Hi Been reading the site for a few years reading the marvellous threads and the knowlegde you have.
    Got into Motown in md 80's and what really kicked it all off was getting the Big Hits and Hard to Find Classics and listeng to the Likes of Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers, The Elgins and not knownig the likes of Edwin Starr and the Spinners were at Motown at some point. Just loving the what I call the underdogs at Motown. Although my Faves are the Temps.
    I'm from UK SE London/NW Kent and a child of the 60s

    This is my first time on this site. Music appeals to every fiber within me. It incites, it excites, it soothes, it smoothes, it is therapeutic in nature and I need to acknowledge all the participants in particular the behind the scene individuals that made these songs possible. I am ignorant to whom these individuals are and I noticed that this forum provides some insight especially to the behind the scene accounts. I look forward to glean some adequate information from this site. Thank you

  12. I am seo worker stated in 2008.I have been reading the site for a few years reading the marvelous threads and the knowledge you have. I joined here for that very reason: to learn more and more and more.

    Hey there everybody!

    My name is Logan. I am 22 year old journalist living in the wonderful state of Arizona. I graduated with my BA in history, and I am an avid information sponge.

    I always grew up with an older taste in music. My grandparents frequently waterboarded me with adult contemporary 1970s and the great singer-songwriters of the day.

    On terms of R+B / soul, i love discovering "new" old artists who fell outside of the mainstream or only found success with certain audiences. Favorites include Dee Dee Warwick, Post-Diana Supremes, Curtis Mayfield, Cissy Houston, Al Green, and many more.

    I'm still newer to soul compared to my other favorite genres, so please forgive me if some of the artists I mentioned don't exactly fit into the Detroit soul scene.

    Although I am young, I was attracted to this forum by the polite, knowledgeable conversation you guys have here. Most places on the internet are pretty vulgar, and it's nice to find a place where I can civilly discuss my music interests, but learn more at the same time! There's also not a lot of people in my life who can talk about The Supremes post-Diana Ross.

    Cheers!

    Hi logan!!!! Welcome!!!

    I am also a young music lover and this place is excellent for talking with likeminded music lovers while learning a lot about the music!!!!

    However, what is this 'other genres' you refer to? Lol...what 'other genres' are there??!! For me there's only enough time for soul music, especially like you discovering all the 'new' lesser-known acts, which I find most fascinating!

    By the way, there's basically no one in my life who can talk about The Supremes, even with Diana Ross, lol

    Hi Everyone,
    It just occured to me that I forgot to introduce myself. I guess I've been "lurking" on this forum for so long that I already felt like a member (smile). I (luckily) stumbled upon this forum in 2002- "A Cellarful Of Motown! Vol.1" was just about to be released but I had no idea of its existence until I read about it here. Since then, I've learned so much about artists that I only had a vauge knowledge about (e.g. Carolyn Crawford, J.J. Barnes, Hattie Littles, Lewis Sisters, etc.)

    I want to thank all of you for sharing your insights, opinions, and stories. And, for the record, I am the WORLD'S SLOWEST AND WORST TYPIST! So please forgive all of my future screw-ups. Thankfully, there's an edit function but, still... typing is my KRYPTONITE!

    'Glad to be here.
    Thanks, Dylan

    I live very far from Detroit (Buenos Aires) and soul music has always been rare here.However I managed to get hundreds of soul music LPs either by importing them or by downloading them in the recent years since few LPs were released in the 60s and a bit more in the 70s. Now I'm 66 years old and when I was 14 I fell in love with the Supremes looking a TV show named Shindig.Since then I have kept on loving soul music.
