    Maybe, but I could see a world where Diana wasn't the least bit concerned with who, what and how of the Supremes after her leaving. When it became official that she was going out and someone else was...

    I've said that before. If he really wanted Jean out, he would've just done it. Giving Mary a call would have been a courtesy, but the plan would already be in motion. The only time he ever let Mary...

    Okay, I know we all know that Mary's books contain inconsistencies and contain recollections that have been confirmed to be something different in this age of recording accessibility, but is the...

    It was a bluff, but not out of fear. Gordy knew what he had in Diana. The Supremes' continued success without her couldn't shake that. Instead the bluff was because of your reasoning #2: he knew Mary...

    IMO Jean was as much a pop singer as she was a soul singer. She and Diana had obvious differences vocally, but that fact made Jean perfect to take over Diana's spot. Diana is often classified as...

    Sophisticated soul. Think the Spinners around the same time. Thom Bell producing them was probably the best case scenario, even better than Stevie. Perhaps they needed Frank Wilson again. He had a...

    Yeah, by the time Diana's replacement was being sought, Tammi was far too ill to be considered.

    Lol It does have a Euro-pop feel to it, doesn't it? The Supremes were so much better than this recording.
  9. She looks great!

    She looks great!

    Regarding Barbara Randolph, I wonder how true it is that Gordy considered her for the Supremes. Didn't they have something going on? Maybe Gordy used a possible replacement in the group as a way to...

    Oh Supy.:p The question wasn't why Flo was asked to sub for Wanda, but what would she have done if she had been asked to permanently replace her. I find it hard to believe she would have ditched...

    As Patti would say: "Heck no!"

    Why would she leave the group she heads up to sing backup in another group? I know the popular thing to do is assume that everybody everywhere would have jumped at...

    Oh, specifically about this song, I hate their version. To me it's one of the few songs the Supremes cut that I honestly categorize as crap. There are songs I don't like, even hate, but I wouldn't...
  14. Mary isn't doubled, it's her and Florence. Mary...

    Mary isn't doubled, it's her and Florence. Mary is just incredibly prominent. This was amongst the sessions where IMO Flo and Mary phoned it in and the producers never bothered to re-cut it. [[It's...

    Yeah, at that point in the game, and on a show like Shindig, the Supremes in form fitting sequins wouldn't work. And this is a great example of how they looked like the average young lady...

    Yeah, I don't understand the accusation that gets flung at people who recall memories of the past that don't speak on Diana's work ethic or talent. Diana has a reputation and I still believe that it...

    Ah, "White" and "Silver" must be what I was thinking about as the extra song or two. Thanks John. I'll have to listen to the mono "Santa" and listen for the chatter. I think the mono "Children's...

    I like their version of "Na Na", but as a single? Hmmm. It might have worked.

    I think Right On might be the album in the entire Supremes discography that had the most potential singles, IMO.

    Interesting pick of "Loving Country". I love it as an album track but I don't know if it would have gone over well on the radio.

    I could never support something where the person behind it was so hellbent on cashing in on someone else's legacy that they would completely disregard the feelings of that someone. As private...

    I'm thinking the places the girl groups like the Supremes and Bluebelles were shopping in the early days weren't the kinds of places that sold dresses for hundreds of dollars. Probably 10, 15 bucks,...

    Sounds like Mary, Cindy and Scherrie. I can make Mary out in places in the mix. The interesting thing about the MSC lineup is I'm almost 100 percent certain that the three Supremes are almost always...
