"Think" I'd be correct in saying that Aretha Franklin never released anything on the Motown label. She was signed to Warner-Atlantic for the bulk of her releases.

At the very least, she was a part of the soundtrack of my life, seeing as I was a kid growing up in the Detroit area, born in '77, growing up in the '80s, with parents listening to oldies stations playing Motown frequently.

(Maybe some time I'll start a thread about how much I really freaking love Motown, and maybe one of the most unheralded great bass guitarists, James Jamerson. You've heard him play)


I have to confess, I only truly discovered her beautiful voice in recent years - I had obviously always been aware of her, but never listened to any of her songs. It was Freddie's love of her that got me intrigued - and I can fully appreciate why he adored her so much. Spanish Harlem has to be one of my favourite tracks.

Oh, and definitely start a Motown thread (such uplifting, soulful music).

I don't know why this halfwit is 'horrified'.

It's patently obvious that he was drinking far too much. 100 units is 6.2 large glasses of wine per day. :roll:

Final judgement in the Bawa-Garba case. Essential reading for the two medical experts in this thread who felt qualified to cast judgement based on no knowledge whatsoever.

Blair might have a point

Maybe there is space for a new centre party.

It's a bit sad when the only alternative to the Tories is this far left shower, who complain about just about everything, but don't seem to have any realistic alternatives to what's s being done.

At least the Tories appear.to know when they've fucked up.
