    The name of that movie is "Julie." I just saw it a month ago and had never heard of it. It's pure soap opera but she rises above the material and does an excellent job.

    I really enjoyed Rare Earth's cover and think the lead singer, Pete, was great. I guess because of the Supreme's version it never occurred to me that a male could do justice but Pete sure did.

    The Supremes

    Folks, it is with sadness that I've come to the place where the nasty comments about all the Supremes have become too much. I'm interested in The Supremes and have been since a lad of 14 so I've put...

    Years ago when I was living in Seattle a co-worker told me, knowing I'm a Motown fanatic, that she was going to see "The Sounds of the Supremes" at a local casino. I asked her if she knew they were...

    Whether Cindy was "lead" material or not, it would have been nice to "hear" her with a breakout line or two during the DRATS years. I'm happy that during the 70's she did get a chance.

    Yes she did. I saw her perform it in the mid-90s at the Sunset Junction Street Fair a couple of times over those years.

    Thanks, PNH. After I posted it I had second thoughts as I didn't want to be perceived as giving you a load of b.s. I appreciated your response. Kind regards to you, too.

    I find it odd that while discussing Working Overtime the topic of sales, or lack thereof, of the other Supreme's is brought up. Why is that necessary in this thread?

    I've been a fan since 1964 and am still a fan. At times I shook my head with some of her decisions but then no one is perfect. No matter the derogatory comments made about her over the past 50...

    I think your quote "I wonder if the Andantes were hidden somewhere to replace Mary's legendarily inadequate singing and preparation?" may be a bit early in the game in 1965 as I can't imagine Berry...

    The Blossoms were not impostors. They were a sanctioned group and primarily did background vocals on tons and tons of hits during that time. Also, in the 60's there was a show called "Shindig" and...

    I really like this song but also don't think it would have been a #1 but loved Diana's lead and Mary and Flo's background vocals. Also, the lyrics were sad -- "pushed aside, set aside, like a doll...

    Wow! Thanks Jobeterob for the link. It's 5am out here in Oregon and I'm just overwhelmed watching and listening to Diana's performance. And, to have her sing "Home" was the icing on the cake.

    No, Marv it wasn't the Paramount. They were at the Moore Theater in Seattle. It's a fantastic place. I used to live in Seattle and would certainly have attended. Alas, too far away now.
