    The harmonies on this were great. Looks like it was possibly taken from the Andy Williams Show.

    I've heard the same re fans having the original pasted-over cover. It just seems rather strange that none of these have ever appeared over the years, at least not to my knowledge. I do recall a fan...

    I think the cover with Flo photos might have just been a mock-up that was put together in a hurry to be used on those generic 45 sleeves.

    If you look at it, there are large black lines around the...

    Some of the photos for I LOVE YOU were actually taken in the 80s.

    I enjoyed this special. Even though it was titled MOTOWN 30, the aim was to highlight the contribution of African-Americans to entertainment. So it is true that most of the acts had no connection to...

    There was a point when Billboard would list both sides of a single under the same position if both sides were getting airplay as opposed to listing them separately. Off the top of my head, the...

    Maybe A&S initially only had a songwriter's contract with Jobete, enabling Nick to record for Verve and ABC? I know Valerie did some work with Quincy Jones before her solo debut lp as released.

    A photo of DMF appears on the right side of the album, under the letters T-I-O-N in the album title. A larger version of this photo (with the girls on a staircase and their hands in the STOP! motion)...

    Great news. I bought the digital version years back but it will be nice to have a copy that is not "homemade."

    I hope they do DIANA SINGS SONGS FROM THE WIZ as well.

    Ha ha! At least they did something a bit different with the graphics on the inside cover for NWBLS. But having a gatefold for THE MAGNIFICENT 7 was just a complete waste.

    In her latest book, Mary says the color photos above were taken at the Cave in Vancouver. I did notice that the music stands in them are red whereas those of the Fairmont seem a light color.

    My copy arrived yesterday and to my surprise, I actually like it very much. I'm usually not a big fan of remixes. In the past, I only liked the remix of SOMEDAY WE'LL BE TOGETHER on DIANA EXTENDED.

    Maybe the Diana/Supremes fanbase was split and had too much to choose from. The Supremes released four albums in 1970 (one with Diana) .Diana had her two solo albums released as well. Perhaps there...

    I remember seeing the FLOY JOY album in the window of my local record store and really wanting a copy. I was just a kid so it was years before I finally was able to buy one.

    A friend surprised me with a Lena book with her stamps tucked inside. I could see a Supremes stamp being just as beautiful.

    This is all conjecture on my part but I'm assuming this special episode with the Jackson 5 was probably initiated by Joe Jackson, who I believe was managing his sons at the time. It looks like this...
