MOTOWN MEMORIES. . .

Singers Louvain Demps, Marlene Barrow and Jackie Hicks aren't exactly household names - even to many seasoned soul fans who think they know their stuff - but as THE ANDANTES, the trio contributed their honey-toned background harmonies to myriad Motown records in the 1960s. Author, VICKIE WRIGHT - who recently collaborated with Ludie Montgomery on a book about her tragic songbird sister, Tammi Terrell - sheds valuable new light on the shadowy vocal group in a new tome called 'Motown From The Background.' It's published by Bank House Books at £14.99 (it should be available at all good book shops but if you have trouble locating it, try www.bankhousebooks.com).
