    I find Mary's vocals perfectly suited for
    HMM and I enjoy the counterpoint vocals with Scherrie. I always found it interesting that many in this group considered it over when Jean left. Many say...

    I agree that hits just don't happen, they are "made" by promotions to djs at the time. It seems Motown was faltering in its choices for singles and promotion at this time. "Walking" easily should...

    Supreme Mistake in 1976?

    Just a question to all of the well versed fans here. Do you think it was a mistake to release MSS so soon after High Energy? Do you think they should have released other singles from HE? Do you think...

    Diana Ross sounds just fine for a 78 year old legend. We should be happy she is still with us and performing. Before she passed, I always said we should be fortunate to have Mary Wilson, Diana Ross...

    I am a huge Mary fan, she was the reason I stuck with the Supremes. I think in a group situation Mary was democratic even when she pushed her weight around as an original member. I think she grew...

    Jean and Levi were an exciting combo on certain songs. This songs just wasn't going to be a hit. This was rehearsal footage. It seems Mary and her Top companion were trying to make the song more...

    Yes, like I stated with my first post there are only 9 and I listed their tenure in the Supremes. Shantel Baker is someone who was touring as a "Supreme" and was always saying that she was in the...

    I think Motown was using the pairing as a way to make money. The pairing with the Temps worked somewhat and had 2 television specials. They hit the Billboard chart at #2 and #28 with Join and...

    I think all of the 9 Ladies were official Supremes, signed to Motown. I think some fans look at Lynda as a sub for Cindy since her tenure with the group was really only 18 months. I think Diana, even...

    I am surprised that Dionne didn't "twote" about it. Probably the only reason the contestant [[I haven't seen it) knows her name is because of her presence on Twitter. The classic artists have long...

    Andy, George and Company did a great job remixing and finding some beautiful alternative mixes. Mary was certainly underused in the Supremes at Motown. I don't think the estate will be releasing...

    Mary Wilson herself was always quite supportive of the LGBTQIA+ Community and her LGBTQIA+ fanbase. Here, there is nothing that is exactly reflective of Pride. Albeit, the dance music is something...

    I admit I am not thrilled that the Mary Wilson Estate just recycled the recent releases to her LGBTQIA+ fans. Not exactly what any fan would hope for. I think, from what I hear, we are at the end of...

    I like all of the singers in the top 50. I was very pleased to see Miss Ross receive the accolade of being #1. She certainly doesn't always get her due respect. I was very pleased to see that one of...

    I remember this show quite well. Larry and MJ were big at the time and Diana was going through a resurgence. Diana is still with us, while sadly Larry and MJ have both passed on.

    I always wondered because Mary stated they were ad libs by Flo, yet they sounded very much like they were still very much scripted. Mary stated that Flo was the one who coined the phrase "Honey, we...
