    yeah i think in the later 70s, there were things that could have worked. frankly the Sups could have/should have done things like the Pointer Sisters. The Pointers made guest appearances on tv...

    Motown mostly determined the shows and content, including the tv performances. Although there wasn't a formal Artist Development Dept as they had in 65, there was still a team that would have been...

    no i hear you that the quality of the music has to be there. but IMO the early Jean albums were great quality. certainly better than much of the DRATS albums. And you had a lot of strong charting...
  4. another potential reason for 70s Sup lack of success

    we've debated this topic a LOT i know. but something struck me the other day while watching some of the DRATS material and while talking with some friends. during the 60s, the Sups had lots of big...

    nice! i wonder how long HE was. of the MSS lineup, i'm only aware of a handful of bootleg shows:

    Royal Hawaiian - April 76, only a couple songs have surfaced. no HE
    Montreaux - HE is included...

    in Mary's book, during the later Jean years, she said Allen Carr was interested in maybe managing the Supremes. now there could have been an interesting idea

    and i'm not saying that by returning...

    i knew we were friends for a reason ran! i LOVE let yourself go too. I had bought the lp in a sell it again store and enjoyed the album right away. LYG was a fav and i also really liked Sweet...

    one more thing to remember - this is a poor quality bootleg. no insult intended to Tony of course. i love that he has shared this and please please please share more! but this was most likely...

    I read a review of one of the early MSS shows and Teardrops was in the show, which makes sense since they performed it live on Mike Douglas

    it's always fascinating to find out little tweaks to the show.

    I think someone once mentioned that when MJC played the Frontier in either late 71 or early 72, they had incorporated into the show...

    another issue with the MSS was a much more haphazard chart history. with the HE set, Walking was released a month prior to the album and there was clear push on that song. there was some initial...

    couldn't agree more

    my guess is that when Walking was a huge club hit, HE was considered as a follow up but I think mary and pedro would never have allowed a single on a member only a couple...

    i think they pulled together an amazing set of songs here. the Hollands really seemed to be on the right track with a very polished and they were experimenting with different intriguing ideas.

    the hullabaloo BIMAA episode is one of the best overall Supremes tv appearances. and not just when they sang Back, although that is just perfect. every time the trio appeared during the show they...

    You're absolutely right. during the DRATS era they group still made some amazing music. all of those tv performances are amazing. and the entire group is displayed wonderfully. Although i don't...

    i'm not surprised that the Supremes recorded it or why it sounds whacked out. Have you ever listened to the Marvelettes "Please Mr Postman" lp? it's dreadful! the sound quality, the productions,...

    that's a good way of describing it Ben. while i wouldn't put 17 or DJ as a "novelty" record like Disco Duck or Monster Mash, they do have too much of a novelty aspect to maintain. And novelty isn't...

    i think the sound of the record and their voices is great but the lyrics are just too inane for me. and isn't this a Smokey song? lololol you know my annoyance with some of his lyrics lol

    IMO there are 3 versions of My World. and you could probably have recorded each as a single and each would have worked.

    Original - this is clearly the best and is timeless

    see WDOLG is sort of what prompted this thread. but i do agree with you that the group is better highlighted with other songs. Still there's a marvelous ping-pong effect with the vocals on Where. ...

    I believe there was some talk that had she stayed with Motown that there would have been a follow up album. But because she recorded It's My Turn and it was released to coincide with the movie, they...

    i never liked DJ. just sort of idiotic lyric. Not that the other tunes were genius. DJ just seemed dumb.

    interesting! and see i would vote these two as the least "group highlight" of the Jean years. IMO IGIMTM is just a standard lead and bg vocals. it's lovely and they sound nice but that's it. and...
