    I'm one that's pro-physical. I view these EE like collecting a China pattern, or a baseball card set. We're so close to completing the entire collection!

    Wasn't it said that Flo threw a lot of $$$ to her family; brothers and sisters? Not saying she shouldn't have, but a classic case of not saving for a rainy day. I thought I read a quote once that...

    That's spot on. I think Flo suddenly found herself thinking, now what? Where were the limos and the champagne? I'm not being b*tchy by saying this, but all of a sudden, I think Flo thought "Oops"....

    Failed singles I think is objective. Did ABC do much to promote them? Did Gordy have his hand in getting them "blacklisted"? Did the ridiculousness of not being to mention she was a Supreme play into...

    Disco was HUGE with one hit wonders, all of whom got record deals. If Alicia Bridges could get a contract, no reason why a former Supreme couldn't. I agree with you 100%.

    It's funny you mention the weak lyrics, yet songs like "More More More" or "Got To Be Real" were HUGE and basically had NO lyrics, just the same three lines repeated over and over.

    I've always maintained that this album was Motown's way of getting out of the lawsuit...

    Mary - MIDNIGHT DANCER

    From 1980. I've always thought this should have been the lead single, over RED HOT.

    Did Berry ever address this in "To Be Loved"?
