    I know. I think it's one of their greatest songs personally!

    Diana was 40-41 during the "Swept Away" era. She was 39 when "Ross", a flop, came out.

    She was also dealing with the fallout of Motown 25, the PR baggage after doing the second Central Park...

    People like to dismiss the original Supremes for being "whitebread" but there was definitely a streetwise vibe to some of their records and this song is a perfect example.
  4. She endorsed online. But not in person.

    She endorsed online. But not in person.

    Love to see two icons mixing up their versions! RIP, Marvin, William and Edward.

    Not quite the record that made Stevie an icon but it showed great insight into his future especially with the title track and his cover of We Can Work It Out. Never Had a Dream Come True and Heaven...

    That campaign's, not Rita's but the other one, is a total flop and possibly fraudulent.

    They might've appeared as special guests for the Four Tops?
  9. GOOD QUESTION! If any other icon of Detroit...

    GOOD QUESTION! If any other icon of Detroit should get the stamp next, it SHOULD be ARETHA! Not a woman who was basically a backing singer for a GROUP.

    How many Detroit music legends get a stamp?...
  10. I think Mary said all of them were doing that? To...

    I think Mary said all of them were doing that? To me, I feel Diana and Flo were more like the natural leaders of the group.

    Motown wasn't a lie. Motown was considered a soul label that pop audiences crossed over to IMHO because its producers manage to successfully tweak it a little where black and white audiences can both...

    Yeah just like it was featured in the Jacksons miniseries.

    Reading on the post-Diana Supremes saga may be messier than when the original trio were together... :/

    Lol yeah I did read that she was doing all of this. Like I said, Florence was only one of three. I mean it wouldn't even be fair to HER to call her THE founder since Milton Jenkins was the founder of...

    Don Cornelius definitely had issues. And yeah he did poke fun at people a lot. Which is why I'm glad Rick James didn't play that mess with him lmao

    Whatever Don had, Rick always had a comeback.

    Yeah, I don't get the Four Tops thing. I read the dates when those albums came out. Truly bad timing.
  17. Guessing because New Ways only featured Stone...

    Guessing because New Ways only featured Stone Love, that wasn't enough to boost interest in the album.
  18. I agree. Here's to hope we get a Supremes stamp...

    I agree. Here's to hope we get a Supremes stamp in the near future!

    January 1976...

    The Jackson 5 tried to leave Motown in June of 1975 but Motown blocked them from recording so they had to continue to "promote" their Motown recordings until their contract finally...

    Smokey's mind was elsewhere in 1972... the Smokey that wrote and produced Floy Joy was not the same one who co-wrote and produced all those hits for Mary Wells, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye and the...

    Motown was doing a tug of war with the musical direction for Diana Ross. Diana did some of that tugging because she wanted to do more earthy soulful stuff whereas Motown kept trying to push her into...

    It was 1972, the Jackson 5 was more popular than the Supremes. By 1973, both groups would start to struggle (though the J5 still had top 40s and one more top 10 hit before they left, which you...
