Re: Motown...anyone else a huge fan?
My first exposure playing drums was soul music. My uncle owned a teen dance club in the 60's called The Broad Cove. My first concert was Jr. Walker and the All Stars (Shotgun) Great groove and discipline required to play it right.
I also recommend "Standing in The Shadows of Motown" with The Funk Brothers. I actually bought the DVD off eBay.
