    It's unfortunate that the album didn't play to Mary's strengths as a vocalist. Personally, I'm not convinced that if Motown had handed her over to, for instance, James Anthony Carmichael, or even...

    I used to be convinced that the Supremes are on "Hat", but over the last couple years I've become torn between it being the Supremes and being Martha and the Vandellas. There are times when I swear I...

    I think Diana had chic on lock. Mary's style was more hip, IMO. Flo was often a mix of the two, but she was also the one who was more likely to be dressed a bit more homely. I get so annoyed when I...

    She was Supreme for sure. Her zest for life seemed to have no end. I watched a couple of old Supremes interviews, namely the one the girls did with some interviewer outside of a hotel. I guess it was...

    I believe Mary wrote about thinking of Flo at certain times and vowing not to let the same thing happen to herself.

    My guess is that Mary had a case and Motown knew it and didn't want to imagine what a court ruling would look like. On top of that, as the case moved on, that's more legal fees racking up. And if...

    Every mention of Tall Tales makes my stomach churn. What a creep. But in defense of Randall, the difference between him and Tall Tales is that I don't get the feeling that Randall made anything up....

    I'm not familiar with this song. I'll have to check it out and come back with my opinion.

    I can hear both Diana and Flo on "Witness", although I can make Flo out better. They both crush "Wonderful One" and drown Mary out. But Mary crediting "Witness" to Martha and the Vandellas just makes...

    Absolutely Ollie. But you say Lady Supreme. I love to think of Mary as the Queen Supreme. [[Without her Princess Margaret impression, of course.:cool:)

    Only thing she appears to have missed out on is the money. I've opined previously that if Mary could go back she would've handled RTL differently because she stood to make a great deal of money with...

    I trust your word on Jean and Mary over that other "authority" who often made the allegation that there was bad blood between them, even suggesting that was why nothing from Jean when Mary passed. So...

    An official investigation is being launched into the allegation that there is no evidence of your out of control excitement in the forum.:cool:

    Oh, so there wasn't a chart prior to then for the r&b albums? Interesting. I never knew that. Well score another history milestone for them.

    Your analogies of the two groups were better than mine and gave me a good chuckle, especially the last one.:D Spot on analysis.

    And just to clarify my point about Mary and Cindy in the group, I...

    I hope George and Andy see your suggestion. Maybe Real Gone could do something with this. There's probably very little chance these three albums will get a standalone EE, so combining them would...

    LOL I can understand that. I like "Heigh Ho" and "Whistle" and "Zippity Do Dah" and "Davy Crockett", but I can definitely feel why they wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. I think it's important to...

    Maybe it's the fan in me, and we fans have a tendency to take our favs waaaayyy too seriously and thus expect everyone else to as well, but it just seems like the Supremes really don't get their...

    Jean's thoughts on Mary's passing was an obvious absence, but I wonder if Jean herself might be having some difficulties. Was this Preston Glass event the last time she was seen in public or heard...

    Probably because it wasn't a professional video but someone's camera phone. Seeing how there's an actual cameraman on duty, it would be nice to see this performance in better quality.

    I don't think anyone is suggesting that Cindy was minimally talented. She had her strengths and weaknesses like every other singer on the planet. But Mary is spot on with her assessment of Cindy's...

    The songs were completed over two days in September. The completion dates are most likely when the ladies added their vocals, as the tracks are so "bare minimum" that I would be surprised if there...

    Lucky I love "Banjo Band". The song is a silly little ditty, but the girls sound great.

    Yeah, the idea is on point, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. It's strange to me that the Funks were so great as a unit, and they were versatile, yet there was this decision to go with...
