Encore Question of August 16th, 1997.


  1. Commodores
  2. Martha & The Vandellas
  3. The Temptations
  4. The Four Tops
  5. The Supremes

Tonight I have a big lead over the other seven players after playing a full game for the first time in months. I won the OnBeat and JukeBox rounds. With 17972 points I put 50% on the line as I wanted to put myself on the reset Hall of Fame board. I was expecting something about Motown artists so with 8986 on the line.

Question:...Which R & B Vocal group was formed in the South?

Well I'm not sure how we were expected to know where everyone in every group was from but I remembered I'd heard an interview or read somewhere where the Commodores mentioned they'd formed in some 'T' place umm Tuskegee? University of Tennessee? Talahassee? Well those seemed further south than Detroit. I had already pressed in '1'. Let's think Diana Ross went to high school in Detroit. Nah too late to think about anyone.

Correct Answer: 1 The Commodores

I'm right and soar to 26958. I'm the only one of the eight players in the bar to get that one. Actually in North America it looks that way to as I'm 84th in North America. The bar is 1802nd as the next closest player to me had only 6xxx something. The win put me 1st on the Hall of Fame board but I found out the highest position in my absence was 22xxx so I'll bet to try to beat that from now on.

Note: My music book has them forming in Tuskegee Alabama in 1970. Yeah that's the South!

Other games:
