Stevie and Marvin's were more gritty and streetwise than Smokey's cookie-cutter vocals. Man, and some folks think he was "soulful". I actually think he was too pop even for Motown.And also why is he always more credited with making Motown the label it was when it was really these guys:The Funk BrothersWilliam "Mickey" StevensonBarrett StrongMarvin GayeMary WellsThe rest of the Miracles...and to a lesser degree, Berry Gordy, Jr.Only real reason why Smokey got what he got was because of his "friendship" with Berry Gordy, Jr. If that ain't the most, excuse my language but I think you know what I mean. Yeah ... I'd add Harvey, as you have and a few others.Bill got his by that old saying; it's not what you know, it's who you know. That's him to a 'T'!
