    I also thought Flo looked her best during her last months with the group as well as late '66. It would have been interesting to see where she would have taken her look had she remained in the group....

    I'm probably in the minority of fans who love this album. Always have since I first heard it as a kid. They just sound like they're having so much fun. And I have to say their version of A Hard Day's...

    They used this formula with several shows in mid/late '66 as well with opening the shows with "Come See About Me" and "You Can't Hurry Love" and then an opening act would come out after those two...

    I've given up on the Expanded Editions and have accepted they may not happen. I'm okay with it only because I wasn't a fan of the '68 and '69 albums save for Love Child. I only wish I had bought the...

    Wonder if it may have helped if they went the LaBelle route and just changed the name to Supreme. "And here is Supreme singing their latest hit Stone Love ". I could see announcers still calling them...

    Eh I'll pass on this one. I love the album they did with Elvis and Roy Orbison and was hoping they'd do a Motown or Supremes version but I'm not too thrilled with the song selection of this one.

    Just ordered! I am excited about this one and it would be interesting to hear if the two Farewell numbers are from different nights than what we heard on the Farewell album. This pushed me to go into...
  8. Rare photo of Florence and Diana in 1967

    I had to do a double take when I saw this one as I had no idea they wore these gowns with Florence.
  9. Differences in studio recordings and live performances...

    Does anyone know if the group was giving free reign on how the singles were performed live? It seems like at least during the DMF period, they would often change little things around with the songs...

    Out of the three of them, it seems Flo was the most honest about her feelings even if it wasn't in a productive way. I often have wondered if her phone call to Diana before her death would have been...

    I remember reading the outside crowd went berserk when Flo's coffin was brought out of the church and they had to throw out souvenirs to the crowd to keep them away. I shudder to think what they were...

    Diana wrote that she received bad press for it.

    And yes as someone else wrote, Mary and Diana had a weird relationship after the Supremes ended. While I think they both loved each other, I think...

    IIRC, Diana wanted to console Florence's daughters which is how she ended up sitting up front or at least that was her words of why.

    She also said she was too distraught and wanted to grieve...

    I think Berry knew better than to show up. He's the one who Flo had the issues with. And I agree, I think people let him get away with too much. The way he treated Diana, Flo and Mary well let's just...

    Yeah I haven't seen the photo I referenced in years but I remember it very vividly. I haven't seen the footage. That would be interesting to see.

    Wow what a great find! It's nice to hear Lois and Sandy considering they hardly recorded on any of the albums. Whoever is taking the high harmony sounds similar to Roz. I have to say while I love...

    As a huge Flo fan, I try not to focus on the sad parts of her life. I'd rather focus on what a charming, appealing woman she was who added something special to the Supremes. Yes she had her demons...
