Misspellings; Misinformation; Miss-Mapped & Revisionist Motown History

This is a 1986 book review as written by Al when he was a staff reporter for the Windsor Star, Windsor, Ontario Canada.  It is self-explanatory.

Al does give George credit for what went on in the studio sessions with the various musicians.  Retelling history is never without error, whether intentional or unintentional.  Locating Belle Isle ... try the Detroit River.
