    Sup I gotta run, but I'll come back with my thoughts!

    New Ways just doesn't wow me as it does so many fans. When I play it, I go: "Sweet Music">"Time To Break Down">"I Wish I Were Your Mirror">"Is There A Place">"Na Na". I used to include "Stoned Love",...

    I don't believe that. It's a popular myth, but when people come together they always have a choice: make it work or don't. Some groups do, some don't. Regarding Motown, I would add to the list of...

    I doubt that. I think the major factors that make the two situations different is age, influence and familiarity. In the original trio you had young ladies who really still had milk on their breath...

    But when the public heard "Guess", they would not have been surprised if it were being sung by either of those two ladies. Of course the song being a hit with either is debatable, but that type of...

    Good points on both, especially your first point. I didn't consider Farewell.

    To your second point, I will say that the argument can certainly be made that the fan favored cover for New Ways might...

    You silly wabbit, re-read my post again. That was my point. "...One can argue that these placements also reflect the nonsense of the schedule." The Supremes had a great track record for placing in...

    Seems like to me the more likely scenario is that each album ends up selling half of 600k because the average fan will be forced into choosing which album to buy, so the outcome ends up that while...

    Florence is on two Reflections cuts: "In and Out of Love" and "What the World Needs Now". Hardly a reason to have her on the cover. Of the non specialty albums and the albums with the Tempts, Flo...

    There are also many album cuts and vaulted cuts that I do think both Flo and Mary were either a viable option or even the better option than Diana.

    Absolutely. With Diana as one of my absolute favorite vocalists period, I'm usually in heaven whenever she's singing lead. But I'm also wild about Flo's voice; Mary's less so, although I think her a...

    Motown's leadership was doing crack before anyone else in the world knew the shit existed. That's the only explanation for this type of idiotic release schedule, along with Diana's 1970-71 release...

    I'd say it's universal that people just like what they like, but the names of certain songwriters certainly carried weight. Burt Bachrach's name was as famous as the artists who recorded his music....

    Well of course it's Mary's POV, but her book has to be considered the source for the 70s Supremes because there is no other source available. To be fair to Mary, what evidence is there to suggest...

    Supposedly it's actually Marlene Barrow on background in place of Florence. But Cindy had a job to do and the Supremes had a record in Italy to promote with no regard for accuracy on background...

    I think Sup is right. The person charged with the cover design was not paying close enough attention and mistook Florence for Cindy. I hate the cover, btw.

    I think it makes good business sense to go with Lynda on the cover. Cindy was on her way out and would not be promoting the album, Lynda would. I think this is probably how it would've gone for any...

    Okay, I knew I wasn't crazy. I remember Mary having a lot to do with the stamps and that there was eventually stamp recognition, it's just that it wasn't the USPS. Got it.

    I've never thought of Flo on "This Can't Be Love", but I have to agree with you. I think she would have done well with it.

    I also agree with your thoughts on Diana's appeal. That's part of the...

    I never realized it before, but those of you who mentioned it in this thread are probably right. Perhaps that why I prefer more of the vaulted cuts than the ones that made the album.

    I've always thought that was the one superior trait that Cindy brought to Flo's spot. She definitely had a better, more natural, dancing ability, and it actually gave the group a slicker look.

    It appears that Mary's left eye lashes were starting to stick together. She widens her eyes to keep this from becoming permanent, although it's a good thing the song was seconds from it's end. What...

    Yeah, I really think Jean, and Mary and Lynda honestly, would have really fit with the sound Willie was crafting. I also think he would have been great when Scherrie came in also. I could hear her...
