    As for the outtakes, I've been mostly pleased with what we've gotten. "After All" is nice and a treat, being it's the only Barbara lead we've heard thus far. "Because I Love Him" is really nice....

    I love the album. It's the first Supremes album I bought, and I'm so glad I basically started my collection with it. [[I had previously been gifted the greatest hits album.)

    It's not what I would...

    I wasn't suggesting that anybody take pity on Mary and sign her to a business contract. I wanted to know who in the business was willing to help her in any way, whether that be advice or whatever....

    Mary didn't have control over the billing or promotion, the latter only if she was doing the promoting. She could complain after the fact, but murky billing is part of the industry. A lot of...

    Brad the problem with your scenario is that she did have a case, and she won. Even in my scenario- the contract wording- leaves one scratching the head. If Mary didn't own the name Supremes or have...

    I would keep all of the original album with two exceptions: "Little Girl Blue" and "Imagine". As beautiful as LGB is, it sounds more fit for Lady Sings [[and of course was recorded for Blue). I hate...

    But I've been reading over and over about how well most of her shows have gone in the UK this time around. One awful performance and she should hang it up? Pish tosh!

    She's had horrible vocal...

    I don't think she had any control in how she was billed and promoted via outsiders. That promo that Milven posted is clearly from Mary's "camp" though. What soloist ever poses with background singers...

    At first glance it's easy to conclude that this is Mary promoting them as the Supremes. But I think most reasonable people would conclude that it says "The Supremes' Mary Wilson", without the...

    Diana Ross singing Lady Sings the Blues does not sound much at all like Diana Ross that had recently released her debut album, EIE and Surrender. She had to try to sing like Billie. Nobody wanted to...

    Those fellas- two of my all time favs- certainly put in the work. I'd argue that Diana's job as an interpreter of song is even harder than that of a singer/songwriter. [[Harder does not always mean...

    I'm done with Supfan. I let him have his moments when it comes to his disdain for Smokey Robinson compositions, but I draw the line at his attitude toward Stevie. I think this is a blockable offense...

    Apparently legally Ragland can claim to be a Supreme, hence why she won her suit. And if Bayou's info is correct, that's on Mary. With the court ruling, I think it has to stand for what it is,...

    Agreed. Diana's first three albums can easily be used as an example of what Diana Ross and the Supremes would have sounded like and/or recorded had she continued with the group into the early 70s....

    I really think it's more likely that the roots of the pairing were in the Supremes and the Tempts on Mike Douglas in 1966. [[Everybody keep those fingers crossed that the footage is found someday!)...

    I don't prefer the duet to Diana's version, but it's a pretty close second. I think if Diana hadn't done it first, or at least if it hadn't been released as a single first, that the Sup/Tops version...

    I don't think the track was terrible in itself. It was just the wrong track for Levi Stubbs and Jean Terrell. I'd even be fine with the track if it was Jean and the Supremes and it was just an album...

    I think that was a producer issue. During the Flo years, Mary got some chances to shine, both in the studio and the live act, when the Supremes were still a trio with equal membership, no matter how...

    Shantal Baker, holder of every degree there is, former member of the Supremes, survivor of the Titanic, signer of the Declaration of Independence. She does not get the respect she deserves.

    As for Motown's interest, I think when Diana left there were two big strikes against Mary taking over the role:

    1) Mary's sound was so considerably different from Diana's. The whole point in...

    Mary never looked her age, so I don't think she would've had a terrible problem post 1979 in being marketed with music that appealed to a younger crowd. With that being said, Mary was not the only...

    Lynda was the shot in the arm that the Supremes needed when she joined. Unfortunately, Motown squandered it with the Jimmy Webb project. And then the Stevie project went incomplete. I value Lynda as...
