    Is it possible that Susaye's overdubs aren't dated? If the backing vocals were completed and dated, if after the fact Susaye was brought in to do additional vocals, isn't it possible that this...

    "The Happening" is a stupid song. I'll take all three of those others over it. I do admit that Diana, Flo and Mary do a good job with it. It's way too pop for my taste.

    I actually think "Dr. Goldfoot" was good enough for single release. Would it have gone #1? I don't know, but I think it could've gone top 10. Everything about it is great: Diana's lead, Flo and...

    Wow, me too 144!! I'm not a fan of "The Happening" at all, but the demo version is more appealing to me than the hit version. I'll take "Surfer" and "Beach Ball" over "The Happening" any day. [[Weird...

    Definitely agree with "Let There Be Love". That's one of my fav of the live cuts.

    I don't know how that slipped my mind. Duh! I'll go back and change it.

    Ray deserved a beat down for that. Bringing children into these things is the lowest of the low. I wonder if she and Diana made up at some point.

    The 25th Anniversary set was about six or seven years old when I bought it. I remember being in such bliss listening to the unreleased tracks, nearly all of them head scratchers regarding why they...

    She's a complex human being, like many of us. If you remember that, it's easy to remain a fan, even when some people have horrible experiences with her. Sadly for some, her horrible behavior will...

    Never thought about it as a duet! That would've been perfect. I think this just moved into my top 10 of Ross missed opportunities.

    Hey, you hit #5 r&b and #16 pop in the US and #9 in the UK. You'll always have that.:cool:

    Agree, the homemade jam verse is a song destroyer. I'd add to that the "Mama I miss you" chorus and the "Mama, Mama can you hear me" as taking the annoyance factor over the top. With some re-working,...

    Excellent choices. I love "Never Again". It really is a good sound by the group. And "Third Time" is always a fan favorite.

    Barbara years= After All...It's the one song that I think shows each lady in a positive light.

    Didn't Raynoma go so far as to write about it in her book? I haven't read it since the 90s but I thought she did.

    Surfer Boy

    Nomis brought up "Surfer Boy" in another thread. I thought to myself, this isn't a cut that gets talked about much around here. I've always loved it, since getting it on the 25th Anniversary set....

    While it's easy for some of us to roll our eyes at "Shame" now, back then, I imagine, the novelty of it was enough to send people out to get it and radio to play it where it was an across the board...

    I hate "The Weight". The two groups did not add anything to that great song, nor did they do it justice. But I agree with you about it and "The Composer". Makes no sense to release them as singles.

    Was she blind? Everybody and their mama knew who Rhonda's daddy was, except for Rhonda herself, apparently. I've always said that if Mary's whole point of Dreamgirl was to hurt Diana, she would've...

    If I remember correctly, JRT wrote that in CHMR. He was not very complimentary of anything he wrote of Mary in that book. I'm not saying he lied about the hypnotist, but IMO the info is suspect.

    I hear you, but you know what? I would've loved a fourth book where Mary was able to write about her life with the pressure off to move a ton of units with drama. The interview that was posted a...

    Nice write up Jim. I don't know if the Supremes would've been completely forgotten, but I fear without Mary making sure her group wasn't forgotten that the group might- might- have eventually gotten...

    I love this song. Case of great album track, poor choice of single. While I certainly disagree with Ollie on "The Composer" being "average", I do agree that releasing singles from the LC album made...

    As a kid I hated it, but as an adult it has grown on me. I thought it had been released as a single here in the US but I can find no evidence of this. I doubt it would have done much of anything on...
