Fucking ugh,

Don't mean to be a pain in the ass (well, not on this occasion) - but do you have any of the old download links handy Ian? I'd just gotten Marvalettes and Miracles and Supremes from '63 and was about to get the live album and Mary Wells.

If not, all is well Smile

December 1963. Stevie's fourth album, built around his minor hit single With A Song In My Heart, and very, very fine renditions of standard pop songs. A great album, but the beginning of a period of commercial decline for Stevie. But he never stopped being great, and this album is that, great.

Also released in the year of 1963 were LP's by Amos Milburn, Mary Wells (Recorded Live On Stage), The Miracles (Recorded Live, Christmas With.. and Mickey's Monkey), Marvin Gaye (Recorded Live), The Marvellettes (Recorded Live), Ralph Sharon, Rev. Martin Luther King, Paula Greer, Johnny Griffith Trio, Dave Hamilton, and The George Bohannon Quartet.

Soon, 1964. Motown explodes.

I wasn't aware Motown had done that. Was it pretty much just a collection of speeches, or something else?

Yeah, Motown did three albums by Dr. King. Speeches, yes, but contracted to Motown like any other artist!

Was that the point of that one scene in Dreamgirls, then?

Yes indeed. Also, it showed the character had redeeming qualities, they just got entirely subsumed and tainted by power. Kind of a Godfather type thing. The more I see Dreamgirls, the more impressed I am with Jamie Foxx, even more so than in Ray, which was just a fine Rich Little-type impersonation. In Dreamgirls he creates a great character from whole cloth, and shows a real screen presence and charisma. I hope he does more good films.

1964 was the year that Motown fully established prominence in both black and white markets as a brandname and a sound unto itself, fully recognisable, a brilliant formula with just enough room for experimentation and subtle change and progression. Motown was the one American movement to truly establish itself in the face of Beatlemania, probably due in no small part to The Beatles and other British Invasion bands' open worship of Motown, including many covers of Motown songs on their albums.
Three acts smashed into the pop mainstream, leading the charge. The Supremes were the most prominent, the most popular American act of their time, a type of ambassadors from Motown and the black community (and by extension, the Civil Rights movement) to the white mainstream. The Four Tops would come up in 1964, bringing a new raw soulfulness into the company's new pop format. The third act were the incredible Temptations. A band that had already had several unsuccessful singles for the company over the last two years, and would go on to have perhaps the most fascinating, complicated and tragic saga of any vocal group.
The group were given a brilliant new Smokey Robinson composition, The Way You Do The Things You Do. The record was as pop as could be, but still retained a very fresh, vital and rhythmic feel. it sounded a lot like the Miracles, due in large part to the comparable and crystalline falsetto lead by the great Eddie Kendricks.
This album was built quickly around that hit, and is a very strong debut LP for an act for the ages. The title and half-shadow picture on the cover both hilariously ape and respectfully nod to the Beatles' Capitol US album debut, that started a new chapter in musical and social history.
Motown placed itself, not in competition, but as a peer, in the 60's cultural revolution.
This album is in the pop mold, with most songs led by Kendricks. The band would lead a direction into grittiness starting the next year, but for now, they were a perfect pop-soul vocal group, and their sound was all innocent beauty.

April 1964. Everyone knows Marvin's amazing duets with Tammi Terrell, but before that he had two other singing partners. The first was Mary Wells, who was actually a much bigger star at this point than Marvin.

This album of duets is just great, lovely pop-soul, and very sweet stuff. Not as epochal and affecting as the Gaye-Terrell stuff, but great nonetheless.
