    Regarding producers, we only know of Frank Wilson wanting Jean’s vocals less soulful and a little more pop sounding. If she was difficult in the recording studio, surely we would have heard something...

    I recently compiled a playlist mixing the more laidback songs from Ross 83 and Eaten Alive. The songs from the two albums really compliment each other making it great to chill out to with a glass of...

    Remember - The unadorned simplicity of the arrangement and vocal make the songs message all the more meaningful and heartfelt. It matches my Sunday morning, melancholy mood. :)

    Supremes wise - the entire Rodgers & Hart album is the standout for me. Mary and Flo also in superb form.
    Solo wise - just about every cover Diana has ever recorded is rather wonderful. From...

    She probably did Boog lol. Let’s just say i think it would have served Diana better if in this instance, she had put aside her need to take control and let others grieve in a way they personally...

    That’s simply not true. No reverend worth their salt would ever take it upon themselves to select a member of the congregation at a funeral to make an impromptu speech. I can’t imagine to many peeps...

    A quintessential Diana Ross single and probably her best video ever. I don’t think any song released from the album would have scored in America. They just weren’t buying.

    I disagree Boogie. Why would Mary contact Diana when her only intention was to stand with everyone else and pay her last respects in her own personal, private way.
    If Diana had intended a joint...

    I have never blamed Diana for not being at the graveside. I think her attending the service was more then enough.
    Her actions inside the church though were extremely ill advised. She probably...

    Really!!. “Baby Love” being such a sweet song and all.
    I find Diana rather irritating on this one. I think Mary’s voice would have been a better fit in creating the sorrowful, haunting vocal the...

    I agree in that prior to her death, Flo still held huge resentment for Gordy as opposed to Diana. His instincts were spot on in not attending.
    For Diana it was a very difficult situation. Her...

    I agree in that Diana sounds slightly off key towards the end. It’s as if it all becomes just to much for her lol. A real oddity this one, but fun all the same as they were experimenting with their...

    Quite nice, but not as compelling a vocal as Flo. The intro sounds similar to Sam’s “Twistin’ The Night Away”. Flo’s version could definitely have been a hit single.

    The world has danced and gone to bed as far as the single is concerned Flo.
    I’m still hoping that with promotion from Diana the album might do reasonably well. A promo visit to the UK would do...

    I agree sup, this is definitely Flo’s most compelling lead and the best track on the album as far as myself and many other Supremes fans are concerned. It allows Flo to fully unitise her vocal...

    I’ve often wondered if the recording of “My Baby [[My Own) had been slowed down. Along with “Brown Baby” it’s probably my fave from the album as well.
    The only time I’ve ever seen Diana struggle...

    I’m sensing a lot of deep bitterness here. Only you would use the tragedy of Florence Ballard’s funeral as an opportunity for a verbal assault on the much loved, and greatly missed Mary Wilson. Your...

    I’m guessing it would be “Thank You” and perhaps one of the slower songs. I don’t think she would be prepared to put in the work of learning many more of the songs for live performances.
