"It seemed to go down pretty well Kai, aside from dozens of people getting up and leaving halfway through it ha ha. All kidding aside it was a great night and the tunes seemed to go down well with the punters on the dance floor plus Molloy, Quinny an…"

"Lol! On your head be it... But I wouldn't be asking a schoolboys English teacher questions like that Kai ;0)"

"I agree with you on all counts Kai. I love and have loads of Tamla along with the utmost respect for Mr Gordy and his professionalism. It's just that Mr. Gaye's voice and singing style has never been to my personal taste, that is all ;0)"

"You're right of course, Gary, Marvins voice can't compete with Curtis, Otis or Wilson, but (not un-important for Mods) he certainly was the smartest appearence of them all. All of Motown have often been accused of commercialism (compared to Stax, fo…"

THE PRINTED WORD

Having just noticed that the initiator of the latest "book" thread left the site taking the discussion with him, it's my turn again to revive it; being too important a topic to be dropped, imo. Having finished "Get Carter" by Ted Lewis over the…
