Music, when soft voices die

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory—
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

Saddened by your leaving. I know that David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, and Melvin Franklin are waiting on you to enter the gate, so is Marvin and Tammi, your greatest bass player James Jamerson is up there too. Do justice up in heaven and entertain the Lord now. Rest in Peace my friend.
September 27, 2008
Very Sad, I was in love with many of the songs he produced/wrote. Well, Motown singers up in heaven, here comes Norman to make it a little better, I send my sympathy to the family. 2008 has taken many greats and Norman is one of the chosen few. Rest in Peace.

STORMIN’ NORMAN WHITFIELD!

One by one the Motown legends are leaving us. Norman Whitfield, producer and songwriter of many of the Motown hits that are still on the airwaves today with regularity, died from complications of diabetes on Tuesday September 16th at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Detroit Free Press Pop Music Writer, Brian McCollum described Whitfield’s Motown contribution as helping to “push Motown beyond the sweet melodies and puppy-love tales of its early days into edgier, more expansive sounds.” When I read that, I wondered if readers, especially the generation that came after the Motown “Heyday” would understand what that meant. I hope this will help.

In early 1966 I watched the Temptations debut their new hit single “Get Ready” written by the legendary Smokey Robinson. Up to that point, Robinson was the exclusive producer on the “Tempts” with songs like “The Way You Do The Things You Do”; “My Girl”; It’s Growing”; “Don’t Look Back”; and “Since I Lost My Baby”. Those songs were phenomenal. The musical and vocal arrangements were so innocent; so personal; and the Tempts were like the background music for a Black version of the comic book characters Archie & Veronica. Listen to them sing Smokey’s “What Love Has Joined Together” and you’ll get the idea. Well after watching the group sing “Get Ready” on TV that night, I was so taken by what I had heard and seen that I could not sleep, and I believe that’s what really got me thinking seriously about songwriting.

A few months later however, the Tempts came out with a new record called “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg”; and when I first heard it I thought, “hey what’s happening here…these are not my Temptations!” I really couldn’t stand the song. It sounded like they had just walked out of our comfortable living room, and took to the streets! It was like I didn’t know them anymore; that they were abandoning us; but then…it grabbed me! The tension in that song helped me define the teenage turmoil I was experiencing at the time. Norman Whitfield had grabbed the baton from Smokey Robinson, and taken the Tempts to a new level!

I was always one to read the credits on the records (‘45’s we called them then), and one name that kept coming up on the string of hits to follow – “Beauty’s Only Skin Deep”; I’m Losin’ You; and “Wish It Would Rain” etc. - was “Whitfield”. And it appeared in various combinations with a list of names like Barrett Strong; Cornelius Grant; Roger Penzabene; Eddie Holland; Janie Bradford; and others. It was a very impressive line-up looking back on the discographies. Whitfield could take an already great song into a whole different realm. Listen again to the transformation of the Tempts’ version of “Too Busy Thinkin’ ‘Bout My Baby, into the superb Marvin Gaye version; or Gladys Knight and the Pips’ version of “Heard It Through The Grapevine” that became a Marvin Gaye mega-hit! It was masterful!

Although Mr. Whitfield had many, many more successes, I wanted to emphasize a little more his contribution to the great historic Motown sound. God bless him, and may he rest in peace.
September 26, 2008
Norman
You are truly the original "One Of A Kind". Your talents and professional abilities were second to your friendship. I was blessed to have worked on so many history making projects with you. I will carry you in my mind and heart for ever. Thank You for all you have done and are still doing.
September 26, 2008
Norman was one of the Velvelette's main producers at Motown. I remember he would always make us feel a part of his songs by allowing us to share in creating the background vocals. Norman was a gifted composer and lyricist, his music helped get our nation through the tough times of civil unrest and war. He leaves behind a legacy of music around the world that will live in hearts forever. We Velvelettes love you Norman.
September 24, 2008
To the family of Norman, may God Almighty continue to bless and keep you always, during this difficult time. It was a pleasure, and honor to work with Norman. I gained a wealth
of knowledge, working with him, as one of Motown's recording engineer's. Thank you Whit

My Dear Norman:
You whisked me away from Motown to set up Fort Knox Studios and treated me like a queen the whole time. The big TV, velvet sofa and brass lamps in my office spoiled me for all other employers since. Rest well and know that you 'are' loved.
September 23, 2008
Yours..... is the music of our life!! You touched us all.
September 22, 2008
I can only wish and hope that the ones who know about Norman keep spreading his story to the people and that everyone becomes aware of his enormous talent!

I had the pleasure of playing drums on a few of Normans hits. One thing that really stood out in my mind was when ever he would enter Studio A he would Yell one two one two three four he loved writing and producing so much he was always ready before he entered the recording studio he was always excited and passionate about the music. Playing on Cloud Nine was a wonderful experience for me. Thanks Norman i'll never forget you. May you rest in peace.
September 22, 2008
How great thou art. God is gracious to alllow his great creativity to pass through this legandary and talented songwriter(Norman Whitfield). His musical expressions will live forever.

September 22, 2008
I FEEL BLESSED TO HAVE BEEN AFFORDED THE OPPORTUNITY TO CO-WRITE & PLAY GUITAR WITH SUCH A TALENTED PRODUCER.
September 22, 2008
Norman,

Everytime I think of you, I find myself smiling ...then laughing at some of the comedic antics, or witty remarks that could only come from you!

Thank you for gracing my life with your friendship. You shall always remain my brother in spirit.

A "Masterpiece" in every way ...you have blessed the world with your gift of music ...THANK YOU!!

Much love,
pat

Norman
There was only one you. You wrote your own songs, danced to your own music, followed your own path and most of all you were true to yourself.

I Will miss your uncensored wit.
September 22, 2008
Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Norman Whitfield, especially during the earlier years at Motown Records. Norman was a great friend of the Velvelettes. As lead singer, I can honestly say that Norman was a true friend and confidant. I always thought of him as a big brother. He authored two of the songs that launched the Velvelettes into the international music scene - "Needle In A Haystack" and "He Was Really Sayin' Something" are two of the unforgettable songs that Norman wrote for us, and we are forever grateful for his interest in and support of our group. God bless you Norman Whitfield for all you did to add value to so many lives. Peace and blessings to your family during this time of loss and great sorrow. Please know that you are being remembered in our prayers.

Love,
Cal (aka Carol) Street

I just lost my friend,Popcorn Wiley.Next Norman Whitfield.Two great talents will be miss. God bless both familys.
September 20, 2008
Norman Whitfield contributed to something that is a part of us all. This week we lost three people who contributed a lot to music lovers worldwide. The other two were Richard Wright from Pink Floyd who wrote, played keyboards and sang on some of the most popular albums of all time and Earl Palmer who played drums on many many great popular recordings. Can you imagine what it sounds like now in heaven to hear them all playing together!
September 20, 2008
It was not 'Just My Imagination' that I had the good fortune to grow up on 'Cloud Nine' listening to the wonderful music Mr. Whitfield was the mastermind behind.For over 40 years I have marvelled at the extraordinary music he was responsible for, and continue to be entertained by the body of work he left behind. Rest In Peace Norman.You will always be admired and will never be forgotten.
September 20, 2008
All of Mr. Whitfield's songs have an enduring quality, that when I hear them today, it's as if I was listening to them for the first time.
One more musical angel to add to the heaven's repetoire. May you rest in peace.

September 20, 2008

It's ironic that VH1 would air the Temptations and then i find out of Norman Whitfield's passing. He leaves behind a legacy of good music that will forever play on.
September 19, 2008
I had the honor of meeting Norman, back in1999,through my son who worked for him.I know he will be dearly missed. MY prayers are with his entire family. Jesus loves you all. Berry Family. Bay City Mi

Gone but not forgotten. What a wonderful song writer he was. His music will live forever. He should be up there now sharing his latest composition with the Lord.
September 19, 2008
I have almost every Temptations CD's available..Norm's name is honored on most of the songs recorded. What a loss I personally suffer to know that he will no longer be here. I love his music. that he teamed with The Funk Brothers and The Temptations. You are now in the Heavens writing music for our Father In Heaven!
September 19, 2008
To the Whitfield Family:
I didn't know Norman personally, but I feel as though I did. He will definetly be missed.There will be never be another man like him far as the music world. Heaven has welcomed a music genius among the other great angels that went home before him.
September 19, 2008
Wow! I cant believe it...I'm so sorry for your loss. I know this is a very difficult time for family and friends, but there is an old saying;"Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning....He was a very talented man that the whole world will greatly miss! My prayers go out to y'all.
September 19, 2008
I really loved the music,but now i will enjoy the memory. You will be sadly missed.

September 19, 2008
Thank you for some of the most beautiful songs of our times.
September 18, 2008
To the family of this beautifully gifted lyricist, most of us never had the pleasure of meeting him, but having been brought up in the music of the past 50 years, I must tell you I've never had more fun dancing and singing with my friends than when we sing, "I Heard It Through the Grapevine (Honey, Won't You Be Mine?)"....it's definitely a sing-a-long...and will always lift your spirits! While I appreciated all of his music, this one is a keeper, just as your loved one was! God bless you all.

It's a shame we can't tell these wonderful people, other than buying their albums,how much their music meant to us in a personal way.
September 18, 2008
Mr. Whitfield- may you continue to compose , co-write and continue to jam with those who are already there.Listening to your music always takes me back to the exact time and place of where I was good or bad. Thanks for all of the good-ole-days music - there will never EVER be anything else like it. RIP my brother.
September 18, 2008
To the Whitfield Family,

In Memory of Norman Whitfield: I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed the movie, "The Temptations", which aired on VH1 on last night and actor Mel Jackson played you well. You were very talented. Thank you for your contributions to the many, many songs you wrote for the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, and the many others in Motown, Gordy, and Tamla records. You will be sorely missed.
September 18, 2008
Norman, it is true your legacy will live on. Motown was built on your shoulders, and The Temps wouldn't be remembered today without your contribution. Rest well... May your afterlife be filled with beautiful music... A 60's child. EM

I grew up in the 60's listening to Mr. Whitfield's music and it is so much a part of that time. He was a very talented and inspiring man and will be greatly missed.
September 18, 2008
SO SORRY FOR THIS LOSS, MY PRAYERS TO HIS FAMILY. I LOVE EVERY ONE OF THOSE SONGS AND HIM FOR WRITING THEM AND THE PEOPLE THAT SANG THEM. MAY THE FAMILY FIND COMFORT IN MEMORIES OF HIM, SINCERLY.
September 18, 2008
My deepest sympathy go out to Norman's family. This man was a legend, I grew up on all of the songs he wrote. Even to this day when I hear one of those songs, they bring back certain feelings. That's when songs told a story and expressed feelings. I will miss the talent of this man, but he will continue to live on in his music.
September 18, 2008
What a lyrical genius! As a teen in the 60's and 70's his words brought meaning to the songs I listened to, fell in love to, and grew my political views of the times. Another great of that era gone onto greater glory. May he Rest in Peace and may his family have peace in the knowledge of the positive influence he had on so many through his lyrics.
September 18, 2008
He will be truely missed I grew up with these songs ...
September 18, 2008
Revlation 14:3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. There have many called Home, but we need to each be prepared for when our time comes, to use the talents He has given each of us to praise Him for allowing us to be reconciled back to Him through the death, burial and resurection of Christ for each of our sins, as your family prepares for the Home-going celebration, show all those that come into contact with you that you are trusting our Father to guide and direct each of your paths for we too one day will have to translate over the Jordan. May the grace of our Savior be with you all. Yours in Christ. Now with all those writers, producers, singers, musicans, that have already translated we will perhaps hear a greater version of the Crusaders during a recording session, one take and we will be just amazed at the sound produced. Remember Psalm 62:11 Once has He spoken, twice have I heard all power belongs unto Him.
September 18, 2008
Mr. Whitfield's music took me from elementary school, through high school and college graduation, to adulthood. It is classic and timeless. Heartfelt condolences to family and friends.
September 18, 2008
May God continue to watch over and bless each of you as you go thru this difficult time. He will live on through his music and all of the memories associated with his music. He was truly an inspiration to me as a young Black male growning up in the 60's and 70's. Keep your hand in God's Hand, continue to trust in Him and he'll sustain you. He will definitely be missed.
September 18, 2008
Sincerest Condolences to the family.
September 18, 2008
I am so very sorry to hear of Norman's passing. The songs he wrote were my favorites. I know this is a difficult time for you, but may Gods promise to bring an end to death comfort you (Revelation 21:4).
September 18, 2008
Your music -your mentality -it will live on-your legacy will live on-the world just lost one of it's most creative minds.during the 1960's;it was a radical time -you were there for us with our music. i was just last week talking about -"beauties only skin deep "
September 18, 2008
The talent of Norman Whitfield will be missed.

I loved the songs he wrote, and the people/groups who made those songs famous.

May he rest in peace, and may God comfort his loved ones.
September 18, 2008
While you are mourning the loss of a loved one, others are rejoicing to meet them behind the veil.

May your family be proud even in this time of loss. I thank God he is not on this earth suffering from diabetes. Having the disease and suffering is two different things. I thank God Norman used his music talent as an expression of
all human kind. The song WAR is all rap! Real RAP!

September 18, 2008
The music is timeless; thanks for the joy and sharing of your musical gifts to the world.
September 18, 2008
Norman's outstanding ability to write music was not only prolific but raised our consciousness in many areas of human experience, ranging from romance and love to the tremendous social issues that many Americans faced during the turbulent 1960s and early '70s. He was a master at expressing our culture during that time in history through musical lyrics that will resonate in my heart and mind indefinitely. Whether we admit it or not, Norman was an icon in the music industry who established a cornerstone for future generations of music producers to make their marks. May Norman Whitfield's soul finally find rest and peace with Almighty God.
September 18, 2008
Norman Whitfield's musical contributions kept Motown relevant in the late sixties thru the seventies. In moving the music forward, he helped move society forward as a whole not only in the U.S. but the world as well. Rest In Peace.
September 18, 2008
One of the greatest songwriter, I love all his hits that he wrote. I grew up and dance and dance and had good times to his music. My prayers go out to his family, friends and fans. Rest in peace, job well done.
September 18, 2008
I too enjoyed the music he helped make possible. It had a great impact on my childhood years. Family, trust in the God of Comfort, he will help you get through this difficult time. (2 Cor. 1:4)
September 18, 2008
We have lost a great song writer. Music is just not the same anymore like the sounds of Motown.My prayers and my deepest regards are with the Whitfield family. We share your loss.

On Tuesday, September 16,2008, another talented,legendary Motown producer has joined the angels.What a sad loss to the music industry.
