    I'll stop with these 3 because I could do this all day. I absolutely love Tammi Terrell & Marvin Gaye. Both were gone way too soon:(

    "What Goin On" is one of my all time favorites of any genre.
    It puts me at a specific place and time every time I hear it.
    "You're all I need" by Marvin and Tami is another Fav.

    Live musicians as backup always brings out the best in a great vocalist, don't you think?
    A piece of art is what happens, in my view. :nworthy:

    I totally agree. I’ve heard many a live version of a song that far exceeded the studio version.
