Recently played Debbie Taylor's l don't wanna leave you . it's got that great little bit in it that sounds like a Lamont Dozier influence     ( why can't we be lovers )         ,   always found it fascinating  that some artists pick up on other acts that are around at the time ,     without having any connection , ANY MORE SPRING TO MIND  ?🎶

The Ambassadors "Too Much Of A Good Thing"  and Danny Monday "Baby Without You"

The Temptones- "Girl I Love You" and The Ringleaders "Baby What Has Happened To Our Love" 

  Just noticed Velvet and The Quads have the same writers and producers so I think they just changed the lyrics.

The Ambassadors with Danny Monday with the horns build-up and the Temptones and the Ringleaders for guitar 1/2 tempo riff and echoey overall groove sound but for the rest... more like a common "feature". Coincidence IMO more than "reference".

One that grows on me lately is the Fabulous Peps 'love of my life' = Marvin's 'I'll be doggone'. Cliché and nonchalant but it "sticks like glue".

Try again,

Skip Cunningham  - Have we met before - sounds a a lot like Deon Jackson  - Love makes the world.

Dont think there’s any connection but if there is I’m sure we will here about it.:thumbsup:

** Arthur Conley- "Sweet Soul Music" sounds like Sam Cooke's "Yeah Man"

** Christine Cooper- "Heartaches Away" has a strong Supremes feel - lots of "Back In My Arms Again" 

** Tina Britt's "The Real Thing" obviously influenced by the Vandellas' "Heatwave"

** Richie Adams "I Can't Escape From You" influenced by Marvin's "Ain't That Peculiar" 

** not sure if these are "common features" or "coincidences"
