Again diablog has to apologize for our very dear, funky Mr. Glynsky missing the beat. The self-proclaimed music expert, lover of everything R&B, spent the day in front of the TV (telly for the English) watching the 2nd biggest perversion of racing, aka F1. I guess, only NASCAR is further from real racing then that. And I would not want to be caught watching either.
So what did the wannabe R&B connoisseur miss?
The 50th anniversary of the first #1 Pop hit of Motown Records, "Please, Mr. Postman" by the Marvelettes with lead singer Gladys Horton and Marvin Gaye on drums. The same Marvin Gaye, known for Heard it through the Grapevine and Sexual Healing. Glynsky will probably insist, that this hit song was first recorded by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. Fugettaboutit!
Here is a small collection of Motown-Hits
including The Supremes with the one and only Diana Ross.
