    I think "All Night Lover" would have had to undergo a considerable remix job to be a worthy single. As is, it is a great album cut, and the Supremes throwback might have gone down well with the...

    Motown screwed up promotion. End of story. That's it.

    BIM was an excellent album. So very well done. Some of Diana's absolute best work. My absolute favs are "You Got It", "The Same Love", "Come...

    I don't think the Andantes make a "Supremes appearance" until 1963. It's rumored they are on "Run, Run, Run", either as replacements or in conjunction. Certainly in 1964 there are instances where the...

    I imagine Stevie also had veto power.

    Regarding "Where", I find that story more plausible than Mary booting "Said". I could see a scenario where the Marvelettes, or any group or artist, thumbs...

    Yeah, but that's a lot of people on the same page about what didn't happen. Could they have all forgotten that it was the Caravans moonlighting on that album?:p

    I love Jean's vocal on the single "Guess". I agree about the JW album. It's the Supremes but it isn't the Supremes. Bringing in an outside producer was a bold and brilliant move. That producer being...

    "Buttered Popcorn" was their song that got the most airplay in certain regions, like Philly, Gary, and the Detroit area, until, I'm guessing, "Your Heart Belongs To Me", seeing as "Heart" charted and...

    I'm not familiar enough with the Blossoms to say whether it's them or not. [[I'm not a fan of the group, although they have some cuts I like.) And with a few people involved in the project all...

    Sorry Sup, but that sounds like nitpicking. He asked "who" and she answered that there are several and provided two names. She begins to say something else and Dick immediately interrupts her about...

    I love this one too. Each of the ladies' talents is on full display. So interesting to hear how upbeat, sassy, happy they can sound on "Right Way" or "Memories" or "Time", and then sound so sad and...

    Yeah, it was the early 60s. Three out of five songs were ridiculous. I don't think anyone would argue "Popcorn" is a masterpiece. But of the people who love it, it's all about Flo's energy. She...

    Thoughts:

    -Both "High Energy" and "Teardrops" were missed single opportunities. I'm not convinced HE would have been a hit, but I also wouldn't bet against it. I think it was fresh enough to make...

    Absolutely.

    I also have to add to the choir regarding promoting the JW project when "Automatically Sunshine" could have used the promotion.

    Good grief. After reading the comments, I expected this interview to be a real train wreck. Other than that thing in the back of Mary's head, and the weird interruption, this looks like a run of the...

    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....
