    I agree with you Reese. Book is a bit disjointed, but there's enough in terms of both observations about the artists and her memoir that's keeping me reading. Maybe it will all come together later.

    1. Get Pedro completely out of the picture and out of Mary's life
    2. Improve the live show [[ditch magic genie and speeded up medleys) and focus it on Scherrie with a few ballads for Mary to sing...

    It's interesting that after Pedro was finally out of the picture, Motown was floating the idea of reforming the Supremes with Mary, Cindy and Scherrie in the early 80s. There have been plenty of...
  4. Diana Ross, among others, profiled and analyzed in new book Shine Bright

    I'm in the midst of reading Shine Bright by Danyel Smith, a long time music and cultural...

    Whenever anything goes wrong in my life, or anywhere in the world for that matter, I always blame Diana Ross first. Makes life a whole lot easier. And when it comes to personal failings and...

    A lot of TLC recordings in the 90s had Debra Killings on background to augment T Boz, Chilli and Left Eye [[who usually rapped rather than sing anyway).

    As a Motown memoir, does this book rank with Secrets of a Sparrow, only with profanity in place of poetry?

    Fingers crossed that if the Arlen album ever comes out that the production was of a more timeless quality then reliant on mid to late 80s adult contemporary music [[i.e., lots of that synth keyboard...

    I don't see any evidence of hate, jealously, or sour grapes from anyone on this thread, except for you, who must be disappointed that no one is taking shots at Diana Ross or being all bitter about...

    I re-listened to the album last night after many years of not playing it. All the songs are pretty much drenched in now dated mid to late 80s adult contemporary/pop production.

    I can't help but...

    The article gave me appreciation of the ambition and aim of the album and TV special. Too often Diana Ross is dismissed as just being focused on commercialism and chasing hits and trends, especially...

    Contractually, wasn't she signed to Motown as a solo artist, and then loaned or placed into the Supremes?

    Can't really argue with the list as it's covering several decades of girl groups. Only change I'd make would be Expose in place of Pussycat Dolls as Expose had a number of top ten hits and the...

    In the 1990s like on her Sands show which she released on DVD, Mary was still going on about men being her favorite thing!

    Must be May 20 it's coming out, not today the 13th. If you go through thread and links there's conflicting info as to whether it's 13th or 20th.

    Axed? It stayed in the act for 5 years or so. However when did Quiet Nights become incorporated into the number for the Supremes live show? Was Cindy still there, or did it become part of Can't...

    I don't think creating excellent albums was a priority of Motown, just solid enough, commercial product.

    One of the ironies is that while the quality of Supremes albums from 66 to 69 were merely...

    Was the book self published? Might explain the lack of fact checking.

    I should have been more clear--what other albums by other top acts, or up and coming acts, were released around the same timeframe as Reflections and competing with that album on the album charts?

    Out of curiosity, what albums were released around the same time as Reflections?

    Although given the dominance of superhero movies with fictional universes, a movie about the Supremes or any of its members does not have much chance of being made.

    Unless one uses the Supremes...

    I suspect "Thank You" will be only new song performed on this tour, but I'm happy to be surprised.
