  2. There's been a bit of talk around the Norma Jenkins version of 'Try Love'. Thought it might be timely to share this article Keith Hughes wrote 25 years ago with a bit of assistance from myself. Published in the 'Yesterday-Today-Forever' fanzine, issue 21 March 1996 Obviously 25 years have passed and more songs out of NY have come to our attention in that time but, as I said, this article is 25 years old so we didn't do too badly Welcome comments on other NY recordings e.g. Carol Moore - Forever And A Day, or if anyone can supply scans of Timiko, Tamala Lewis or Sparkels etc ...

  6. An article Steve Armitage, and I, wrote in 1993 ... explaining the number system Ain't That The Truth! The Motown DM Master System By Steve Armitage & Andy Rix Acknowledgements To Ron Murphy (Detroit) Have you ever wondered what the letters and figures on your Motown 45's stand for? Obviously there is the issue number (e.g. Motown 1056), but there are also other numbers, different on every side of every record. Examples might look like this:- DM 003222 / DM-V 038221 / DM-J 084103 DM-WLB 098112 / DM-BLL 134324 Gradually, by late 1965 the DM is dropped, l
  7. VARIOUS ARTISTS - A CELLARFUL OF MOTOWN VOL 5 Caroline International What is it now? 10 years since volume 4? Well think it's fair to say that 'overdue' and 'long awaited' are deserved descriptions with this release, #5 in the series. Seeing that this double cd is already close to featuring in Amazons top 50 cd best sellers chart (currently #59) then it is living up to the blurb. No mp3s or streaming release seen yet or indeed audio previews, some of the tracks have been made available before both digitally and on other releases, an informative look at this release, listing s

  9. PAUL RISER - MBA (Motown’s Brilliant Arranger) The importance of the arranger in the musical process, whatever the genre, cannot be overstated …or underestimated.

The American Federation of Musicians defines musical arrangement as “ …the art of preparing and adapting an already written composition for presentation in other than its original form. An arrangement may include re harmonization, parap
