    The Supremes, as well as most American groups, didn't have the luxuries the Beatles did in not touring after a certain period. Especially if you were a black group, you HAD to tour, otherwise, people...

    I forget that most pop songs didn't stay on the charts for long periods of time. That wasn't until recently. And yes I'm aware it was number one on the Adult Contemporary charts so that might've done...

    Do we have to wait until Berry passes to get the truth of who sold what???

    It's frustrating because we think when we see chart positions that they were "flops" but the way songs were released then...

    Yeah. Patti is extra but she does care for her friends. That's one thing I give her a lot of kudos for. And I know about her history with her and Dionne Warwick getting on each other's nerves (over...

    IMHO, Motown screwed up the Supremes AND Diana Ross as far as singles go.

    With Diana, they should've pushed I'm Still Waiting more in the U.S., same with Surrender, Remember Me being released...

    Diana had a modest hit with another country-flavored hit, "Last Time I Saw Him". I guess they were looking for lighting in a bottle for a second time and it never got there because Motown's...

    Indeed it has. I'm just happy a black artist topped the list. Especially MARVIN. Well-deserved.

    This is correct. I actually wish Marvin had got more involved in how they were selling the singles. He probably would've been pissed to hear that Motown sent the version WITHOUT the party chatter at...

    I think I credit Dionne Warwick with popularizing R&B to the white market. Songs like "Don't Make Me Over", "Walk on By" and "Message to Michael" were perfect examples of pop and soul integrating....
