    Yes they will. This is not unusual, except that it's Mary who sparked this. Usually when Diana has a high profile television appearance her albums and the Supremes albums see an uptick in sales. Mary...

    Roberta I had to laugh at this. You just can't stop yourself!:D Will you leave that man alone!

    That is a great photo. I didn't realize the book would contain such great and candid shots. I was under the impression that it was all about the gowns. I guess I have to buy it.

    Perhaps it's best...

    June 6, 1989, the day it was released.:p



    No, I don't think so.



    Really Ollie? You didn't know about that? Well I guess you can be forgiven. It was the most recent act of violence I...

    I bet Quincy was a bigger possibility at RCA than Motown. I suspect that, given the success of "Endless Love" and the commercial potential of "Dreaming Of You", had Diana remained with Motown, Lionel...

    They had a right to complain, but at least they knew ahead of time that the show was cancelled. I'd be much more pissed if I showed up somewhere to see a show only to then be told that the show was a...

    Mary Wilson's cancellations do not fit either of the scenarios you presented here. However, those things do in fact continue to happen, and will always happen, as they always have.

    Maybe it took her until a couple days before the event to realize something had to give. Fans of Mary Wilson who complain about this might want to keep some perspective. At this point in the game, if...

    Ollie get with the times. You have to let the ways of the past die out. When you know better, you do better. We're supposed to be progressing, not regressing. Sure I miss the days when we could beat...

    Or her fans should understand that she's 75 years old doing a high energy dance competition and she is physically unable to do everything she did when she was a Supreme, going from one part of the...

    All interesting points Sup. Makes sense too. As I said in another thread, Motown also wasn't the same in the 70s as it was in the 60s. Motown 60s seemed to be a well run machine. Motown 70s was all...

    I thought her execution needed some work. She seemed to slug it a bit. However, I quickly reminded myself that the lady is 75 not 25, and for a 75 year old she appears to be holding her own.

    While...

    I think anyone who is a fan of Mary and/or Diana, or anyone remotely familiar with either lady and their history together, have let the question cross their mind, if only for a moment. I don't know...

    Cool performance. Horrible choice of song (I'm sure not Mary's choice). Cringy moment at the beginning with that Diana impression. Too early to tell how this will go down but I'm hoping Mary...

    Your post read to me like you were attacking those people in the forum who often make the "promotion" argument for Mary's solo lack of success at Motown. But you know what you wrote and what you...

    Marv "Drive" is one of my all time favorite songs ever. It brings back such great memories of being a small kid. Here's one that both the song itself and the video are attached to two vivid memories...

    "Right Way" and "Nothing But Heartaches" are great examples. Also "Play A Sad Song" and "Whisper You Love Me Boy".

    What is with you being so bothered by other folks opinions? It's almost funny. How do you quantify a term like "ridiculous" as it relates to someone holding the opinion that Mary could've been a...

    No, what's moronic is your inability to state your opinion regarding the reasons Mary's album failed without resorting to name calling and attacks. What you have demonstrated in your post is the mark...

    It's a nice song. As an album track it's a really good listen. As a Diana single at this point, I just don't think it would've done her career any favors. As Ollie pointed out, she had The Boss and...

    Too many. But I'll highlight a couple of favs.

    I'm already heavily recorded as being of the opinion that the Barbara years suffered because of Barbara herself. She did not possess the vocal...

    The Supremes were already legends and broken up by the time I was born, so I'm not sure what the first song of theirs that I heard. Surely it was one of the first four number ones, or "Hurry Love" or...

    Your Supremes First

    I'm interested to learn what everyone's first is when it comes to the Supremes. For instance:

    First time you heard the Supremes on the radio?

    First time you saw them on television?

    First...
