Some discussion following my my recent Inspirations post misses the point entirely.
My point about the Inspirations’ song selection being perhaps their most notable strength was not based upon how much the groups’ own fans liked their songs. It was based upon the popularity the Inspirations’ songs have had as reissued by other groups. The extraordinary success of those songs, both in the Inspirations’ original rendition and in the second group’s cover version, is what leads me to say that (first) the songs are good songs and (second) good songs are a strength of the Inspirations quartet.
I have been accused (in real life) of enjoying debating a little too much. Points, counterpoints, and let the comments begin…
