  1. Kim Weston - Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me For A Little While) (Gordy) But beaten by Debonaires - I'm In Love Again (Solid Hit)
  2. When the Velvelettes went for their audition at Motown, they sung the 2 songs that they brought with them....Shall I Tell Them and There He Goes. Neither of the releases give credit to the Velvelettes as composers. Go figure!
  3. Thank you for your response. I can totally appreciate the nightmare that you have had to go through on this set. Sequel tried to do a similar project years ago and failed. More recently, Eddie Holland was approached about a similar project at the time Ace put out his CD compilation but that didn't happen either. You've done much better than all earlier attempts. Well done.
  4. If access to UK masters is possible, why not include all the UK releases eg I'm On My Way To A Better Place, Come Back, Silent Boatman, and the 2 versions of Somebody's Been Sleeping on Hot Wax 102 and 108. Since the track listing is by reference to American catalogue number, will those be the American mixes and not the UK mixes? As I am sure you are aware, the US releases are often noticeably different from their UK counterpart - examples that instantly come to mind are Westbound no 9 (I have 2 different mixes and both are different to the UK 45) ; While You're Out Looking For Sugar and You Got Me Dangling On A String
  5. The track also features on the Generally Speaking album.
  6. Any chance of the 45 from Laura Lee Barking Up The Wrong Tree/Love's Got Me Tired (issued on Ariola America)?
  7. The flip side of Jones GIrls Taster of The Honey has been listed as I'll Catch You When You Fall - Laura Lee also recorded it. Are any of these tracks on this cd set being taken from the original masters?
  8. I spoke to Brenda Holloway. Brenda told me that she was signed to Invictus and she has no idea why her songs came out on Music Merchant. Brenda recorded more than enough material for an album including many songs that came out as big hits by the like of Glass House, Freda Payne, Laura Lee and Honey Cone. Good luck with the project. I've tried to do it in years past with Sequel but was sadly unsuccessful. I'm so pleased that the powers that be have agreed to release the unissued material. I hope it might include alternative mixes of the released 45's in addition to their 45 mixes.
  9. Till we meet again...RIP Bobby Rogers of the Miracles. The sweetest, the funniest and the kindest man it was our privilege to know. A man after God's own heart, and Dan's close buddy for all time. All our love from Dan and Marie. (Leighton) Added by site from his wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Rogers Rogers is the son of the late Robert & Lois Rogers. He was born on February 19, 1940 the same day and in the same Detroit hospital as fellow Miracles member Smokey Robinson, although the two would not meet until 15 years later. On December 18, 1963 Rogers married Wanda Young, the lead singer of Motown group The Marvelettes. They had several children together and divorced in 1975 after twelve years of marriage. In 1981 Rogers married Joan Hughes on his birthday. The wedding ceremony was officiated by the late Cecil Franklin (older brother of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin). Rogers and his wife Joan reared four children (Bobbae, Gina, Kimberly & Robert III) all are now adults. Rogers was residing between his primary residence in suburban Detroit, Michigan and a Beverly Hills, California piedaterre with wife Joan. Rogers' cousin, Claudette Rogers, was also a member of the Miracles, and later married Smokey Robinson.

  11. Ricky Street Jr, the son of Richard Street has announced the passing of his father. added by site also reported on http://soulfuldetroi...Street&p=149926 wikipedia clip http://en.wikipedia..../Richard_Street Street was the lead singer of an early Temptations predecessor, Otis Williams & the Distants, and takes the spotlight on their local hit "Come On". The Distants also included future Temptations Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, and Elbridge "Al" Bryant, who left The Distants and their record deal with Johnnie Mae Matthews' Northern Records to form The Elgins (later The Temptations) with Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams. After their departure, Matthews had Street briefly lead a new Distants group in the early 1960s. The Monitors During the mid-1960s, Street performed with a Motown act called The Monitors, who had only one minor hit, 1966's "Greetings (This is Uncle Sam)", to its name. The Temptations Street knew the Temptations and Otis Williams, in particular, having worked for Motown in quality control and through his vocal work with the Distants and the Monitors. By the late-1960s, Street was being called upon to travel with The Temptations and sing Paul Williams' parts from off-stage, while Paul Williams, who suffered from both alcoholism and sickle-cell disease, danced and lip-synched onstage. Street officially replaced Paul Williams in mid-1971, after both he and Eddie Kendricks left the group. A number of the Temptations' best-selling hits feature Street's lead vocals, including "Superstar (Remember How You Got Where You Are)" (1971), "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" (1972), "Masterpiece" (1973), and his featured solo, "Hey Girl (I Like Your Style)" (1973). Street and Damon Harris traded leads on "1990"s tune "Heavenly." He and old Distants bandmates Otis Williams and Melvin Franklin endured a number of lineup changes over the two decades Street was a Temptation, during which time Dennis Edwards, Ricky Owens, Damon Harris, Glenn Leonard, Louis Price, Ron Tyson, and Ali-Ollie Woodson all served as members of the group at various times. In 1998, NBC aired The Temptations, a four-hour television miniseries based upon an autobiographical book by Otis Williams. Street was portrayed by actor J. August Richards.
