Legends Of Motown Quiz

50%. Not bad for someone who's never been interested in Motown.

 

....and had a 50% chance if he'd done it blindfold! :P

 

80% for me with no cheating.   90% if I cheat - 'cos I didn't like one of the answers.

Four Tops question about being a jazz group wrong.

 

Yep, that was the one I didn't like.

They didn't say jazz group - they said jazz BAND. That makes me think of Kenny Ball.

 

Does singing a few jazz standards make you a jazz band/group? What about their doowop stuff? I'd always imagined their roots lay there, but am willing to be enlightened.

Kev , a bit of a trick question I reckon but maybe wrong. The thing that made me pick jazz was the Album that's mega rare or doesn't exist , which I reckon was something like 'Jazz Workshop' (nearly put 'Worksop' :lol: )

Or I may have imagined it  :hypo:

 

Just re read what I put , if the album doesn't exist it must be bloody rare :lol:

That's right I remembered the Jazz Workshop LP as well.

Unissued album, titled "Breaking Through", supposed to include some of the recordings on the Lost and Found CD, was slated for release on Workshop Jazz, as Workshop LP Jazz W217.

excellent response! we call this the "proportional reduction in error" problem in statistics. comparing correctly predicted variance to either guessing the modal category, or relying on random chance (as in this case). 

 

you should be a social scientist! (maybe you are?)

 

you would be surprised how many researchers report results that are WORSE than random chance as being "significant"...

Ha, no not a Social Scientist!  Never been a fan of statistics as they always seem to be missing something significant which would drastically alter what they pretend to portray.

 

On another note - thanks to all for mentioning the Jazz Workshop LP which I had no idea about. :thumbsup:  You live and learn.

The only one I got wrong was the Diana Ross founded the Supremes one, and I think that's a bad question. She was an original member of the group and she may not have been THE founder, I would still consider her a founder... She was there before they were even the Supremes...

70% , though I thought Bobby Taylor discovered The J5

 

 

That's what I heard.

Bobby Taylor heard these youngsters sing, and told Gladys Knight who went along to see them and was impressed.

Between them, they convinced Berry Gordy to take a look.

Miss Ross had nothing to do with it, though she took the credit of course.

 

I got 90% - got the Mary Wells/Beatles question wrong.

70% but i disagree that MG was a 'member' of the Funk Brothers

Also as noted above it was Bobby Taylor who found the J5

Finally - simply because they covered some jazz standards doesn't make the 4 Tops a jazz group
