  1. Thank you for this fine set of Berry Gordy's best; have a nicely soulful weekend.

    1. Hi Aging Child.
      Always great to hear from you. I posted this after watching the latest Motown movie - "Hitsville The Making Of Motown [2019]". Its an interesting and amazing story with lots of ego.

      Hope your weekend is peaceful and enjoyable.


    2. Thank you for the kind word, and generous shares. It's impossible to succeed in the intense media world *without* an ego; talent and a dream aren't enough - so something as big and successful and pivotal as Motown... well, the talent and egos have got to make that a darned intriguing documentary. Thanks for the cinematic signpost!

    3. Sure, Butter, thanks - but please post it because you enjoyed it, and for everyone stopping by who enjoys the Motown sound, and what made it... I'm just one happy listener among many!


    5. Thanks, Butter - I zipped over to the Galaxy (first time ever), but what downloaded was a 12.2 kB speck... no idea how to work with that. If I need to sign up / log in, I'll sadly have to pass this one by. Suggestions - ?

    6. That not a great result.
      What i did was click on the Magnet icon next to the picture on the left of the page. No need to sign up at all. It will send a link to your torrent manager, ie uTorrent. (If you don't have a torrent client then you can get u torrent for free. Once installed you can download all that is available on that site other any other torrent sites.) Good luck. Let me know how you go.....


    7. Thank you for the further instructions, Butter - I don't have a torrent manager; I figured something like that was the issue. I'm keeping your directions, and will give it a li'l thought... but it may well be that joining the torrent world would add another window of even more distractions I don't have room for. Thank you most warmly, regardless!

    8. Here , Try this one aging Child.
      Full movie

    9. Butter, you always go above and beyond the call of duty... even the call of kindness! I didn't even think to ask, and you deliver! I'm downloading it right now (and I hope many other happy visitors are doing the same). You are a man of soul... in more ways than one!
