    Motown picked the wrong songs for singles from this album.

    I would have picked “Top Of The World” as the lead single. A missed opportunity on Motown’s part. “All Night Lover” was a great...

    DFTMC covers Motown up to 1973. They have a few things post 1973 but it focuses on when Motown was still headquartered in Detroit.

    I don't think "It's All Been Said Before" is the hit people think it could have been. It just kind of plods along and doesn't go anywhere. I don't hear a memorable hook or melodic moment that leaves...

    I guess I am alone in the camp that thinks its not them alone. It's not their sound. Listening to "Tossin' and Turnin'," when the girls are doing a call-and-response with Jean with their "alrights,"...

    That’s what’s so confusing about this. Mary confirmed it was the Blossoms. Jimmy confirmed it was the Blossoms. If Darlene said she was on it, then that’s the three people confirming it and yet...

    I'm not entirely positive those additional voices on the Jimmy Webb album are the Blossoms. Knowing their sound and their previous background vocal work with artists like Johnny Rivers and Bill...

    That song really is a piece of dribble. I can’t believe it became a hit. I can’t believe Ron Miller wrote a plop like that. More perplexing is that Motown would even sign Charlene. There’s no color...

    What I find interesting are people who don't think "Walking" had what it took to go higher on the charts. When a incredibly dumb song like "Disco Duck" could come out the same year and go to number...

    It wasn't Diana's track record but rather ABC released the 5th Dimension's version of "Love Hangover" before Motown could release Diana's. In an effort to make sure she got the hit, they put all...

    I'm surprised at people's strong response to Mary, Scherrie & Susaye. To me, it doesn't hold up to its predecessor. High Energy is one of my favorite Supremes album. Great songs, great production,...

    I really enjoy her Motown material. "Steal Away Tonight," "It Happens Everytime," "Just One Teardrop," and "Forget You Ever Met Me Baby" are gems. Some of her covers of Smokey tracks are stellar - I...

    Correct, but if Motown owns the name and has clear evidence Raaagland never was signed to the label nor recorded as a member of the Supremes then she has no case in court to call herself a legitimate...

    But if Motown owned the name Supremes and Kaaaren was not signed to Motown then that throws a curveball in her argument that she was legally a Supreme especially if Motown objected to it.

    I hear the same voice throughout. I hear no differences in tone, timbre, phrasing, etc.

    I mean, Tammi is on the Easy album - "More, More, More" and "I Can't Believe You Love Me" with Marvin...

    I listened to the track and I'm not hearing any mix of two voices together or weaving Tammi with Valerie. People need to remember the technology wasn't there in those days to do all sorts of magical...

    Significant? Maybe for the UK, but definitely not here in the US. They wouldn't do a story about it.

    Tammi was an incredible artist but the fact is she's not singing on the Easy album and that doesn't take away from her talent. It's not an unfounded rumor. It's very much a well known truth now....

    Actually Mary & Flo are singing live like Diana. They don’t have a mic so that’s why we don’t hear them. At one point, you can see Flo behind Diana singing “Ooo” that isn’t on the record at 2:19 and...

    Precisely. I love Diana and want all that's best for her tour. I'm not a toad or a hater because I'm critical of her setlist. I certainly had criticism of the choices Mary did in her live shows. Did...

    Her own material? No covers? “More Today” and “I Will Survive” are covers. Yes, she did record them but they are not original to her nor are her versions the ones people remember or associate with...

    That set list is same ole, same ole. No surprises. “More Today” and “I Will Survive,” good grief. Just the same show she’s been doing for the past 15 years. There were a few folks on here certain...

    Version 3 and 5 are complete, but currently unreleased. Version 3 has made the rounds in bootlegs years ago. It begins with an organ piano and has a Latin feel to it. Version 5 was done in the same...

    And people said the Supremes were a revolving door in the 70s. How many Temptations have there been now? 80?

    Do they think we're deaf? At the end of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" you can hear her live over her prerecorded vocal. It is quite clear what was prerecorded and what was live. Her prerecorded...
