Iテ「冦 really stuck for a lead story this time. Not because thereテ「冱 no news but because I canテ「冲 choose which is the most important. They all are in their own way, so will start at the top of the pile of paper on my desk and work down. Logic, Sharon, logic!

Letテ「冱 TCBテ「ツヲ The Temptationsテ「 Law Of The Land, Eddie Kendricksテ「 Girl You Need A Change Of Mind, Commodoresテ「 Machine Gun join the Jackson 5テ「冱 Forever Came Today, Diana Rossテ「 Hangover and The Boss, Teena Marieテ「冱 I Need Your Lovinテ「 and Thelma Houstonテ「冱 Donテ「冲 Leave Me This Way on a hu-mongus 4 cd package titled A Complete Introduction To Disco 1970 - 1980. Fan-bloody-tastic! And it was released on August 30.

JAKI GRAHAM

You may have seen the news item relating to Jaki Graham posted a few weeks ago. Well, do you remember that she was a Motown artist - albeit by default? In 1990 Jaki teamed up with Paul Hardcastle to record a version of the Jimi Hendrix classic Voodoo Chile. They called themselves Kiss The Sky and watched the single climb the UK chart. Next was Living For You with a sampling from Minnie Ripertonテ「冱 Loving You, but thatテ「冱 besides the point. A little while later the Kiss The Sky cd was released by Motown: the cover carried an illustration by Jose Ortega but no pictures of the two artists. You could, however, find their names on the inner sleeve, with scanty information that included the project was written, produced and mixed by Paul except, of course, Voodoo Chile. Anyway, other tracks were テ「 You Donテ「冲 Have To Change, So Easy, Your Heart Got In The Way, Itテ「冱 You, Donテ「冲 Take Your Love Away From Me, We Can Make It Happen, What Does It Take, It Donテ「冲 Seem Right and Same Place Same Time. It was an interesting release; the calibre of the material was some of Paulテ「冱 finest. It certainly should have done good business, but, one assumes, Motown didnテ「冲 have the dosh to promote it properly, so it went to Motown heaven where unsold music of excellence goes. Now, of course, the cd is much in demand.

BOYZ II MEN

Now letテ「冱 cross the Atlantic and spend a short time with the one-time Motown mega group - Boyz II Men. Although they were raised in Philadelphia, the group signed a recording deal with Motown and made money immediately. Their debut album Cooleyhighharmony passed 14 million in sales but 1994テ「冱 II exceeded that by a couple of million! It was a remarkable career for four young men who based their sound on tight a cappella harmonies and strong emotional ballads, like End Of The Road and Iテ「冤l Make Love To You. Their distinctive style is recognisable the world over and, member Shawn Stockman told The Wichita Eagle, that this was actually developed when they were growing up, and when Philadelphia was receiving recognition as a R&B metropolis. [I"]We were fortunate to have that type of music and that type of history at our disposal (at the time). If that music wasnテ「冲 on the radio, then our parents were playing it at home.テ「 Originally a five member group, Boyz II Men was whittled to a quartet when they signed to Motown, and when, of course, their musical influences were totally diverse.. テ「截eing musicians, we couldnテ「冲 help but listen to what was going on and to what, at the time, was hot.テ「 Shawn said, citing New Jack Swing, hip-hop, R&B, gospel, pop and rock. It was a rich time for music テ「 テ「彗nd we tried our best to scoop it all up.テ「

Today, Boyz II Men comprise three テ「 Wanya Morris, Nathan Morris, Shawn テ「 and are signed to Decca, following further recording deals with Universal, Arista and Koch. Their last two significant releases are probably, Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA in 2007, and last yearテ「冱 Love featuring re-makes of love songs which I wasnテ「冲 that fond of Iテ「冦 afraid. Although still a high profile act, Shawn says his lifestyle has slowed down, and he loves enjoying the best of both worlds. テ「弩eテ「决e still able to physically perform at the level that we need toテ「ツヲnothing has changed. (But now) we can go home, raise our kids, be husbands and enjoy life. We can go to the store and buy milk and eggs (too).テ「 So, I suppose you could say, the guys have grown from boys into men!! Sorry テ「 devil made me write it! By the way, the group celebrate their 20th anniversary next year, so letテ「冱 hope for something special eh?

MOTOWN RELEASES...not quite!?

As you can appreciate, Iテ「冦 often asked questions that I canテ「冲 answer. A most recent one was - why is Motown leasing out its product and not releasing them itself? I couldnテ「冲 answer that. So contacted a man who would know テ「 Harry Weinger. He told me that if youテ「况e got any queries like this, then feel free to contact Harry at classic.motown@umusic.com and heテ「冤l personally answer them. So to the reader who sent me the question, do your stuff girlie. As it happens, am listening to Ace Recordsテ「 limited edition of The Satintones Sing! cd as Iテ「冦 typing this. Particularly interesting are the final two tracks テ「 Solid Sender and Iテ「冤l Never Love Again because they feature Chico Leverett with the Rayber Voices of Detroit. In fact, itテ「冱 a solid collection. Plan to listen to Barbara McNairテ「冱 Front Row Center next. Yes, Iテ「冦 intrigued as well!

BERRY NICE INDEED

Well, if I could afford it, Iテ「囘 buy it. Berry Gordyテ「冱 former residence in Detroitテ「冱 Boston-Edison neighbourhood is up for sale for the princely sum of $1.395 million. The nine bedroomed house has five full bathrooms, four half bathrooms and a five-car garage. It also has a 4,000-square foot pool house, with bowling lanes and a billiard room. The house, known as the Motown mansion, was built in 1917 and features Italian renaissance design plus old world craftsmanship, like a marble-columned ballroom and a black walnut panelled living room. Um. Maybe not.

MARC GORDON RIP

A little sad news here. Marc Gordon, manager of The 5th Dimension died in June in Los Angeles, at the age of 74 years. Heテ「囘 been ill for a number of years. Known for his songwriting talent, high energy and テ「亘oie de vivreテ「, Marc was the director of Motownテ「冱 West Coast Operations during the early sixties, and produced some of the companyテ「冱 biggest acts like The Supremes, Marvin Gaye and テ「廰ittleテ「 Stevie Wonder. However, his greatest success came when he left Motown in 1966 to discover The Versatiles, who had actually auditioned for Motown, but werenテ「冲 signed up. He asked the quintet (Marilyn McCoo, Billy Davis Jr, Florence LeRue, LaMonte McLemore and Ron Townson) to find a hipper moniker テ「 and The 5th Dimension were born! As their new manager, Marc connected them with Johnny Riverテ「冱 Soul City record label, and the rest was Grammy, gold and platinum history. Marc also managed Tony Orlando and Dawn, Thelma Houston and Willie Hutch at one point. According to the (original) quintetテ「冱 biographer, Robert-Allan Arno テ「 テ「廴arc was a trailblazer, an indelible part of the history of The 5th Dimension, of music history. He was a seminal figure during the proverbial テ「連ge of Aquariusテ「 who helped bridge the pop and soul charts, subsequently uniting diverse audiences during a turbulent time in our country.テ「

A SUPREME DIANA ROSS PERFORMANCE

And thatテ「冱 a very loose link to Diana Ross with Love Hangover being the connection. Got it? Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence caught one of Diana Rossテ「 recent US concerts. テ「弋he show was fab as usualテ「 Lynda said. テ「廬 want to thank her for incorporating Scherrie and me on the video opening of the テ「漏eflectionsテ「 part of the show. She did lots of Supremesテ「 hits on this show too. And she looked fantastic, sounded great and wore the most fabulous gowns! She is the consummate performer and gets better with age. Truly in a class by herself! Kudos Diana!テ「 Read more by visiting scherriepayneandlyndalaurence.com Also, Scherrie Payne reports that Supreme Cindy Birdsong is writing her autobiography. If you need any visuals Cindy, give us a nudge. My email is motowntracking@sky.com Talking of books Iテ「况e been asked what my latest project is. W-e-l-l. I never like to tempt fate but can say Iテ「冦 working on a Divas Of Motown coffee table book. With photographer Ivan Constable who took blinding pictures of the ladies in London, Iテ「冦 compiling visuals of all the companyテ「冱 ladies (please, please donテ「冲 let me leave anyone out is my current daily prayer!) Thereテ「冤l be some stunning shots and some not so stunning but, I hope, informative text to go alongside. Itテ「冱 a work in progress with no publication date as yet. Meantime, on the back burner are two other projects テ「 one relating to a male Motown superstar and the other to a female Motown trio. Nearly forgot, for the time being, my planned Motown Tracking book due to be published by Bank House Books this year has temporarily been put on hold. Working with me on that book was a young researcher, Felix Mensah, who is quite brilliant, and heテ「冱 sent me a series of Motown Fifties; which I think youテ「冤l find fascinating. So to kick orf, hereテ「冱 the first two, and more will be included in future columns.

A FEW LITTLE TRACKINGS

Her version of The Temptationsテ「 Ainテ「冲 No Sun Since Youテ「况e Been Gone included on Dustyテ「ツヲIn Deutschland dvd due to be released by Zone Recordsテ「ツヲテ「ツヲ.A young Jermaine Jackson on the Dynamite Videos dvd just out from Wienerworld, the same company to release The Temptations Live In Concert!. Full reviews to come, but what niggles me greatly is the lack of support information. A little inner sleeve highlighting details about the artists and the discテ「冱 content would add so much to the purchaserテ「冱 pleasure. Not everyone knows Jermaineテ「冱 history, and sometimes being Michaelテ「冱 older brotherl just isnテ「冲 enough. There Iテ「况e said it. Am available at a reasonable price! ...The Temptinテ「 Temptations will be celebrating their 50th anniversary next year. Please Motown letテ「冱 celebrate this iconic occasion with style and excitementテ「ツヲ...In a recent US interview, Smokey Robinson was quoted テ「 テ「廬 live a life that I absolutely love. When you earn a living doing what you absolutely love, thatテ「冱 a blessing. I donテ「冲 ever forget that. Especially in a business like show business, where people come and go overnight. I am very blessed.テ「 テ「ツヲ.A brand new Michael Jackson compilation is in the pipeline for November release. Itテ「冱 said to contain a couple of songs left over from the Bad album, plus another from Thriller, and a possible five reputedly recorded with Will.i.am. Also, Michael Jackson: The Video Game, a hybrid karaoke and dance simulator, is also due at the end of this yearテ「ツヲ..I often think that when artists cut an album of cover versions, itテ「冱 a cop out, or theyテ「况e got no new material of their own. This canテ「冲 be the case of Phil Collins surely, with his Going Back compilation. To be fair to him, Iテ「况e only heard a handful of tracks and wasnテ「冲 impressed: maybe itテ「冱 his voice not suiting that wholesome R&B musical atmosphere. Dunno. テ「廬 want the songs to sound exactly like the originals.テ「 He didnテ「冲 want to bring anything new to these already great records, he said, but rather try to テ「 テ「徨ecreate the sounds and feelings that I had when I first heard them.テ「 The fact that three Funk Brothers テ「 Ray Monette, Eddie Willis, Bob Babbitt テ「 are featured on all the tracks does give Phil a little credibility I guess, but I have to ask, if he didnテ「冲 want to change anything, why donテ「冲 we just listen to the originals? ..テ「ツヲHave heard this Barbara McNair cd through to the end now. Released by Sepia Records, itテ「冱 a collection of show tunes. What a stunningly marvellous voice she had - rich, articulate, smooth and clear. Sadly, she died from throat cancer in in 2007. Tell you what, I feel an article coming up in the future about this distinguished singer who recorded some ultra soulful slices for Motown. What say you?

AND FINALLY...

And this leads me nicely into my last item as Barbara McNair is included on the long awaited And this leads nicely into the next item because Barbara McNair is included on the long awaited A Cellarful Of Motown Volume 4 due next month.
