    I remember back to those days and I was quite excited as the Supremes sounded as fresh and contemporary as any other artist out there but while still maintaining a variation of their signature sound....

    I have met Parnell at one of Mary Wilson's concerts a number of years ago. He was very nice and very friendly. While we hugged and chatted in the line to see Mary, one of the audience members asked...

    I think Diana Ross did a credible job on the song. Remember the times, we were just a few years away from the 70's where there was a revival of the 50's with shows like Happy Days and movie like...

    I liked the fact that Mary shared so many leads on the Supremes 75, I thought that she and Scherrie were an excellent combination. If I were to release Supremes 75, my choice of tracks would have...

    I don't know Jean personally, but have read third account stories. I am not sure. I know a number of Jehovah Witness and they have very strong beliefs. Jean was also said to be a bit shy and stand...

    I would assume Motown would have still wanted some sort of control over the group in 1972 when Lynda replaced Cindy. Still, that was the year of Lady Sings The Blues and almost all of the attention...
  8. After Jean Terrell, who chose and hired the new Supremes?

    We all know Motown chose Cindy Birdsong as Florence Ballard's replacement and Jean Terrell as Diana Ross' replacement but after that the information on who picked the group members is a bit fuzzy. It...

    I would say that had to be true. I remember reading that the group wanted an outside producer and when they got Wayne Weisbart[[sp), it brought the ill-fated Jimmy Webb album and huge indifference...

    Yes, there did seem to be a good amount of press regarding the release on digital download. I am not sure how well it did, but remember reading here that it made some iTunes charts. I just wonder if...

    In some ways, that makes sense for continuing the sound but with the Temptations the lead singers that left were never catapulted to stardom like Diana Ross was in the Supremes. David Ruffin...

    I think the Supremes were in a very precarious situation. They were criticized if they didn't sound exactly like they did in the 60's and they were criticized when they attempted new sounds. Whenever...

    I would say my opinion is different from yours regarding Scherrie and Jean. As far as warmth, I would say of the three Diana had the warmest tones, but she didn't convey as much warmth in her...

    Yes, Mary wrote in Supreme Faith that Scherrie & Susaye told her that Motown was going to give them more creative control and promotion. Mary responded that when Diana left that Motown didn't provide...

    MB, I do hope that the Mary Wilson Expanded Edition will be released on CD. Too bad the songs from Clarity and Walk The Line and her demos are not out there, too. Still, I am very happy with hearing...

    I am fortunate enough to have it on a CD single. Great song for Mary, it didn't go anywhere and when they released "Walk The Line", they decided to promote the title track. I remember reading some...

    I think for the 60's grouping that Stop! in the name of Love was Grammy worthy. For the 70's I am surprised that Stoned Love wasn't nominated or River Deep-Mountain High with the 4 Tops, considering...

    The Supremes 60th Anniversary

    This year marks the 60th Anniversary of The Supremes signing with Motown. With the year half over, it seems that this milestone will not receive any media attention. Since our beloved Mary Wilson...

    Many of Mary's recordings were very good and should have done much better than they did. I remember "U" being released around September or October and one of the initial rap lines is relax your mind,...

    I think Ross gave a heartfelt performance of Home. I think it pales in comparison to Stephanie Mills' version, but it is still good in its own merits.

    The Supremes officially ended on June 12, 1977. Mary Wilson was the last Original Supreme and she left the group for her solo career. All of the members deserve respect and support. The current...

    I am hopeful that Miss Ross has much success with this new release. It sounds very good.

    As someone who followed the Supremes starting in 1970, the last performance in 1977 was the official end to the Supremes, whether you followed the group after 1970 or 1973 or not. This year marks the...

    I consider Diana Ross to be a very good vocalist, just as I feel all members of the Supremes were very good vocalists. I bought this single back in the day, and I really liked it tremendously even...
