Rick James propels Motown into the ’80s with rhythm, rock and attitude, but that’s because he already knows about convention – and how to ignore it. More than a decade earlier, he makes music with Neil Young and others, giving him the experience and determination to earn a crown of his own: the king of punk-funk.

It was the emergence of local record labels in Detroit in the 1940s and 50s which helped the blues scene to flourish, compared to the 1920s, when blues artists generally emigrated to Chicago to record their music. Some small labels, including Staff, Holiday, Modern, and Prize Records, only existed for a brief time, while other labels experienced greater success. [11] The most prominent of the Detroit-based labels from this era was Fortune Records , and its subsidiary labels Hi-Q, Strate 8 and Blue Star, which ran from 1948 to 1970. Fortune released hundreds of recordings in many genres, including tracks by Hooker, Kirkland, Jenkins, Dr. Ross and Maceo Merriweather. [12]

A listing of credits on Monday with a theater review of “Motown: The Musical,” at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater, misstated Schele Williams’s role with the production. She is associate director, not associate producer. Because of an editing error, the credits also misstated one of the roles played by Raymond Luke Jr. and Jibreel Mawry. It is the young Berry Gordy, not “Chucky Berry.”

Called in to see Gary last week while I was attending a RAFA conference in Blackpool, those bases are excellent and are well worth the price.

It was Tamla's first million-selling record. On April 14, 1960, Motown and Tamla Records merged into a new company called Motown Record Corporation. A year later, the Marvelettes scored Tamla's first US number-one pop hit, " Please Mr. Postman ". By the mid-1960s, the company, with the help of songwriters and producers such as Robinson, A&R chief William "Mickey" Stevenson , Brian Holland , Lamont Dozier , and Norman Whitfield , had become a major force in the music industry.
