The Voice Gets Wetter  
After weeks of shakiness, my computer finally and completely crapped out, thus the lack of posts and/or comments. Well, I guess it did not completely crap out, but let's just say opening an IE window was too much for it to handle. Now I'm borrowing Chris' older (and much slower) E Machine. At least now I can post without getting IE errors every 3 minutes. But I digress...The Marvelettes. It's hard to believe that for the group who had the first #1 hit for Motown (Please Mr. Postman), there are so few (decent/good quality) pictures on the internet of them from there heyday. Somebody out there has to have some, right? Google the Marvelettes and you get the same 5-10 pics from the 1960s, none from the 1970s, and then a bunch of pics of the women who currently tour as the Marvelettes. What a shame...And THIS is tempting, has anybody read it? I would expect that there's some Diana Ross and Berry Gordy trash talkin' in it, no?

And this one is especially for phyllisgabor because I have this feeling that if she does already own it, it's an LP. So here's Cha Cha Cha in glorious digital.

And I'll jump on the You Tube bandwagon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdwpMQ7gnv0

Hey! This journal is really awesome, and I love pretty much all this music. Mind if I add you?

Nope, I don't mind. I think I've seen you around before, I'll add you back as well:)

Awesome. I too put music up on the internet. But its on Multiply. I make playlists and share them with people, though I don't think anyone actually looked.

I've never heard of Multiply. It's only playlists then, you can't download anything? Do you have a link to your page? I'd like to check it out.

yeah you can download them

see if it works: http://wenzo.multiply.com/music

Oh my gosh, thank you for that! I actually didn't have the MC Lyte tune on vinyl or any other format, so that was very much appreciated!

Whatever happened to the L-Y-T-E anyway?

Oh! I forgot to post this link I found. I guess she has a boutique:

and she still does some music.

Of course! I was just about to send you a LJ nudge, I was wondering where you've been. I don't know if you got my email, but thanks again for the Shangs tote, I've been using it almost everyday.

That's wonderful! :) I'm so glad! I use my Shangs tote all the time, too!

I've missed your posts!! :)
