A Gentle Reminder

Recommended Posts

I watched 'Standing in the shadows of Motown' last night.

I had forgotten just what a great dance track, 'Aint to proud to beg' is.

When everyone else in the office is humming 'is this the way to amarillo', its nice to have this bopping around in my head.

Just thought I's share that.

I got all choked again when the story about Robert White in a restaurant is told again.

Dont Knock Tony Christie, he's from Conisbro. A similar town to Amarilo and once host to Jimmy Ruffin, Detroit Emeralds, and Ken Dodd at the Adeles WMC.

I couldn't believe how good that was. Thought it would be just ok, but its a classic. The guy who plays david ruffin is top.

When he turns up at that gig after they'd thrown him out, then he sings "aint too proud..." to Otis.

Class!

I agree, I thought the whole DVD was riveting. Even the 'live' rendition of My Girl gave me goosepimples. By the way has anyone ever seen the original B&W video of that? David Ruffin seems to be singing something else entirely.
