    Yeah, I think "Tears Left Over" had the potential to be a big hit with a final mix. The PK album might have ended up their best album had it been released when scheduled. I think it was shelved when...

    Diana does a great "Tramp" but yeah, could've done without it. And I agree about that note in "Porgy", that's one of the reasons I love it so.

    That's very interesting Reese! I wonder what that's all about?

    Yes, love that one too. I reckon this one is screaming for an expanded edition.

    The ones on the Supremes version is the Blackberries. I wouldn't say the Starlettes sound better, but they are definitely the stars of this version. They sound great.

    I love it too Ollie. I used to really love it and then at some point it was reduced to "like" level. I think the version I originally enjoyed was a different mix to the one I ended up playing the...

    Never cared for "Sloopy". For years I liked "Memories", probably because Mary was singing lead. I have since cooled off of it, mostly because Mary is singing lead.:p That arrangement did not suit her...

    Agreed. Assertive and sassy seems to be the point of the song. Diana never did pull off sassy very well, which was one of Flo's strong points. Diana was certainly capable of doing assertive, so not...

    HA!! Me too Floy!! It took me YEARS to figure out it was horns. Way back in the Yahoo Groups (aka Yahoo Clubs) days, someone told me that the mono version had backing vocals. I didn't get a copy of...

    Diana's Live At Ceasar's Album

    Here's one that doesn't get much discussion around here, Diana's "Caesar's Palace" lp from 1974. It's always been one I enjoy a lot. The two songs I play the most are "Big Mabel Murphy" and "I Loves...

    Supremes "Take A Look Inside"

    Here's one of my favs from the Promises Kept sessions. I think it would've been a highlight of the album. Anyone else a fan?

    "Supremes" These Boots

    Okay, aside from the fact that I think Florence was a better fit for this song, I really love this cover. Again, aside from replacing Diana with Flo, the only other change I might consider making is...

    Had the ladies done this song alone, I think I would like it. This dude though? No. Just no Sans.;)

    But how interesting for this cut to be covered.

    I agree about the Farewell set list. Don't know if it was the same set every night for the last engagement. Would be cool to learn what songs didn't make the final album. I think at the end of the...

    That's the thing though, Ollie. If done right, there wouldn't need to be complications. A tour is out of the question at this point. Maybe a do over might have worked around 2005-2007, but I really...

    First of all, glad you're doing better Maniac. This illness is taking people out left and right, and of the ones who survive, it's still a horrifying experience. There's a certain somebody with a lot...
  17. Yeah, if you're looking for it, but your comment...

    Yeah, if you're looking for it, but your comment said that it (along with hiphop) is eclipsing all other types of music. I disagree with that statement. R&B is almost dead where popular music is...

    Yikes! Don't do that. We're not allowed to talk about that around here. Stick to Mary and Flo's drinking. Please.
  19. But why wouldn't she say that if it's the truth?...

    But why wouldn't she say that if it's the truth? Lets be real, Diana calls Mary up tomorrow and says "lets do this for real, the right way", before Diana could hang the phone up, Mary would already...

    I think "Aquarius" would've been fine with just the Motown stars included. The other folks were unnecessary. But Diana is in fine form and Cindy was even given a chance to let loose. I love the...

    It did allow Mary to add another part to the publication of the combined autobios. I don't know if combining the two books was already in progress or if the RTL drama resulted in the opportunity to...

    Agreed. Horrible fit. I love the cut. She sings it so beautifully. If Gordy wanted it released so bad he should've included it on the GH album later that year. Perfectly fine with that. But on DR76...

    "Kiss Me Now" is cool. Had Diana cut "Fools" in 1976 it would not have been too pop, unless maybe Masser was charged with producing it. In the right hands "Fools" could've been a nice piece of funky...

    Basically how I feel. I do believe there will never be a reunion tour. While very youthful, these women are closer to 80 than 70 and I just don't see throngs of audiences packing into venues in the...

    I would agree with that. There's a polish on the Supremes' version, a brightness if you will, that is absent from the Isleys'. But the Motown sound is all over the Isleys and sort of absent from the...
