Anyone here get down with the town? I love MoTown, I swear they just don't make music like they use to. Gladys Knight, The Temptations, and Marvin Gay are some my favorites of the genre.

lol, hell yea.

Ya know what's kinda creepy... the dentist I go to, all the assistants are middle-aged black women, and when I go I'm usually baked. So when I speak(very deep voice already), they all flock to me and say "Damn honey, you sound just like Barry White!... Say something else..."

Kinda wierd :P

Not a big fan of Motown, with the exception of Marvin Gaye. Diana Ross? The black Celine Dionne with an ego to match..the "rest" of the Supremes, brilliant harmonies and arrangements

I Kinda like the Atlantic Records/Stax-Volt sound of R&B. Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Stax-Volt Band, Etta James, Eddie Floyd etc etc etc . Maybe it just had a bit more of an edge to it. They didn't need the "strings" and all the flowery arrangements.

Just my opinion

Im in total agreement. MoTow/Staxx/Chicago area style changed music forever. You cant name a great band/soloist that wasnt influenced in some way by this music.
