R&B purists have often argued that the Commodores did their most essential work before 1977. It was in 1977 that they crossed over to the pop/adult contemporary audience in a major way with "Easy," and subsequent hits like 1978's "Three Times a Lady" and 1979's "Still" (both of which reached number one on Billboard's pop singles charts) certainly weren't the work of R&B snobs. Of course, Lionel Richie never claimed to be an R&B purist, although it is safe to say that the Commodores were still a hardcore funk/soul band when their third album, Movin' On, came out in 1975. From an R&B standpoint (as opposed to a pop or adult contemporary standpoint), this is one of their most essential releases.

"In Our Lifetime" is the sixteenth studio album by soul musician Marvin Gaye, released January 15, 1981, on Motown label Tamla Records. Recording sessions for the album took place at Marvin's Room in Los Angeles, California, Seawest Recording Studio in Honolulu, Hawaii, and at Odyssey Studios in London, England, throughout 1979 and 1980 (and abruptly remixed in 1981 by Motown). The album cover was designed by Neil Breeden. Gaye's final album for Motown before leaving for Columbia Records, the album was the follow-up to the commercial failure of Here, My Dear, a double album which chronicled the singer's divorce from Anna Gordy. Entirely written, produced, arranged, and mixed by Gaye, In Our Lifetime? was a departure for Gaye from the disco stylings of his previous two studio efforts and was seen as one of the best albums of the singer's late-Motown period.

The year was 1977 - and this was the album that turned the Commodores into certifiable superstars in the crossover and commercial market. Not that they weren't popular before - they had a huge R&B following, consistently amazing albums, and some pop music success, but nothing like it was after this album was released. 1977 was the year that the group embarked upon a massive nationwide tour, and their audience grew and grew to monumental proportions. This album was flying off the shelves in the music stores. Three of the songs from it that would go on to be classics were responsible for that. Ad campaigns, movie and TV roles for the funk sextet from Alabama followed as a result.

His career went nowhere after the release of his first and only album for Motown.

Early funk from The Commodores - a group that spent so much time sleeping later, it's hard to believe they could be so funky early on! There's plenty of that bass-heavy style that would later dominate many Motown combos at the end of the 70s - but the group's really in control of the groove on this one, without any of the cliches that such bassery could lead them into. Lionel Ritchie contributed one nice smooth soul number, «This Is Your Life», and the rest of the album includes «Let's Do It Right», «Wide Open», «The Bump», «Look What You've Done To Me», and the pop funk classic «Slippery When Wet».

Soul Source: Jackson 5 Remixes is a Japan-only CD released in 2000 by Motown Japan. It is a remix project featuring primarily Japanese producers remixing songs from the original Jackson 5 multi-tracks. The exception is an actual cover version of "I Wanna Be Where You Are" by singer Monday Michiru. Producer/remixer Kenny Dope Gonzalez was the only American at the time of release to be on this project with a remix of "It's Great To Be Here". There are a few other Soul Source projects at Avaxhome and like those, this one was put together by Yanai Kenichi. Some of the remixes stay close to the originals while others are radical rearrangements.

The Searchers' debut LP doesn't sound quite like any other album they ever issued. All of their Pye Records albums were rushed, but not like this – faced with an extraordinarily popular hit right out of the box in the guise of "Sweets for My Sweet" (which rose to Number One on the U.K. charts), the group cut 11 more finished tracks in one day, drawn from the best part of their stage act…
