No, but there's a lot of interesting stories surrounding Motown, I'd like to check it out.

The movie The Big Chill, I can't stand the film, but I'll leave it on because the music is all motown. And John Hurt is pretty funny.

My favorite Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell duet is "You're All I Need to Get By."



Okay, all I could find on YouTube was some cheesy fan video for a soap opera or something ... but just close your eyes and listen to the song.

A couple of years back, through a friend of mine who is a music promoter, I got to hang with all four members of the Four Tops -- two original Tops, Duke Fakir and Obie Benson, and two replacement Tops. (I did not meet Levi Stubbs, who is in poor health.) It was a very cool experience.

Here are a couple of things I found out about them:
1) they are very nice to their fans
2) they know everyone in the music business, past and present, from Elvis to Joss Stone
3) THEY SING IN THE CAR.

One funny moment came when we went to lunch. A gentleman joined us and did not say a word. When I got the chance I asked him. "What do you do?" He said he was the Four Tops' valet -- "I take care of the suits." He flies to Vegas or wherever they are performing a day ahead of the band, and takes each set of four suits with him. They're set up and ready to go when the band gets there.

I LOVE Motown music as well and I think my favorite artists are The Temptations and Smokey Robinson!! Amazing melodies!! Does anyone know if Wilson Pickett was a part of Motown?

Anyway here's something you might enjoy. It's a 13 part documentary on Motown! Really great stuff. Check it out:

I love me some Motown, especially the Supremes and Stevie Wonder. My parents listened to a lot of Motown when I was a kid, so I'm very fond of it. Just great stuff.

It's pretty cool that alot of it took place in 1 studio. Think of some of the classic cuts that were laid down here. It's a mind fuck.

If anybody visits Detroit, please go here. It's a wonderful experience. You can stand on the floor of the studio and look up to the recording booth where Holland Dozier Holland sat. (Berry Gordy sat upstairs in his office: if he came down, the producers knew they had a hit.)
