    this song is IMO Flo's most polished and powerful lead vocal. i'm including all of her motown work, live performances, the ABC content. It's a powerhouse song that she is perfect for. she adds...

    i agree that In and Out (and frankly even Going All The Way) is not the strongest output by the Supremes. They're very "California/LA/Sunshine Pop" in sound similar to songs like being done by Beach...

    apparently the background vocals for In and Out and Going All The Way (To True True Love) were done on the same day in June 67. The later is on the Never Before Released Master. For whatever reason...
