    Samba di Brazil on a Winters day!

    • Spot on Kai. That's put a big smile on my face ;0) 

    • Warms your bones in these cold days.

  • Long overdue visit to Essens last PROPER Record Shop for some Vinyl...

    • Tell Mama - Etta James is a superb sublime classic, one of my favourites. I don't know what it is but Mr. Gaye has never done it for me. I know it's perhaps wrong but he always falls way behind the likes of Mr. Bland, Mr E. King, Mr. Mayfield, Mr. Redding, Mr. Cooke and many other great male Soul or R&B singers... A fine and well earned body of work, adulation and recognition but maybe a tad too overplayed and/or commercial. But hey, that's just me... A superb collar and cuff cover art nonetheless ;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, for example), but I  think sometimes it's too easily confused with professionalism... ;-)

    • 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)

    • Having read the Detroit 67 book we talked about last year, I didn't know how many really tragic fates are connected to Tamla Motown...
    • How's this for a review Kai?

    • That's it, in a nut shell, yes Gary. Sorry, English not being my native tongue, what exactly are 'erect penises', hahaha!?
