did you know.....

... that Motown turned 50 recently??? far out, it's 4 years younger than me!!!! the 60s, 70s and to a lesser extent the 80s (it was declining by this decade) just wouldn't be the same without the soul, rhtyhm, blues and funk from the likes of Martha and the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye, Supremes, Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips, the Four Tops, The Jackson 5ive (when Michael was a cute, chubby-faced, full-nosed non-dermabrasioned young lad!!!), Stevie Wonder, The Commodores - let's face it - everyone was dancin' to 'Motown music'!!!!

aaahhhhh, but.... did you also know that Stylus, fronted by Peter Cupples, was the only Australian band ever to be signed to the Motown label???

I couldn't find an original 70s version of the song I remember best from Stylus - Summer Breeze - so you get a 90s version from the original band (well, the original singer anyway - couldn't tell you who else was in the band - hey, it was the 70s!!!! drugs, drugs and more drugs!!!!) but you have to skip over about 1 min 55 of daryl somers crap... and I don't think this version is as good as their original one!!!!!

hey, I still enjoyed it though...
