Finally braced myself to watch the profile episode. On a lighter note, is it just me or does Phillip (feather perm) seems like he was saying during the interview segment “oh that’s nothing..that’s just the half of it”! lmfao He was one of the funniest and candidly honest. There were some other funny highlights..Jody: “siiiiign the mathafacka!!”..lmfao!! I need to see the unedited interviews for the culture..lol I don’t wanna give away too much. On a musical note, Phillip was a great lead vocalist as well, I had no idea that was him all these years (it’s in the genes as well..look up: Ingram Kingdom). Tommy is indisputably a beast bass player.. he had some serious thumps on all those recordings. Looking back makes me appreciate them more. For the record and as a fellow historian who personally witnessed that era, “Best Beat In Town” was irrefutably one of their staple jams..everybody had to turn in a “Dance Record”..even Rock bands. Knock it off…that song was huge in the hood. I can’t allow shade to be thrown on one of the best party jams of all time. Dont be putting a remix on history…go get your old Billboard stats..ijs #switch #unsung #unique74

I’ve been obsessed with this song forever. This is basically an opera piece if you observe the instrumentation & lyrics. Furthermore, we must celebrate the powerful delivery of the late great Mr FREDDIE GORMAN who delivers pure vocal excellence plus phrasing. Dim (aka DIMITRI FROM PARIS) doesn’t compromise the original version but accentuates sheer brilliance of this piece by revealing the strings as the opening to the flood gates of a soulful testimonial. #Motown
