    Hopefully no one took what I said as against anyone, I was only trying to think how the parties involved might feel. I think there was room for everyone-Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and the FLOs just like...

    Bobby, I can certainly understand that. The truth in music act was passed to protect original group members. Imagine a group like the Temptations that had so many members, they could have tons of...

    The former ladies of the Supremes are quite talented and some of their recordings are quite enjoyable. Some of their recordings are just rehashes of previous Supremes songs with them singing it over...

    Mary & Cindy

    In many ways, the Supremes during my young days were always Mary [[may she rest in peace) and Cindy [[prayers and love during her illness). Which grouping do you prefer with them?
    Diana, Mary &...

    .Wow! Okay, I was only being hopeful as a major fan of her talent. I had no intention of disrespecting her or her legacy. I certainly miss her talent, beauty and positivity in this World. I will...

    I definitely understand that. I guess there may be too many legal reasons to go beyond the Anthology. I also understand that it would be smart not to release things like My Love Life is a Disaster,...

    I agree that if Mary Wilson had sung it, it would have been a much different song in tone, manner and meaning. It may not have been the hit it was with Madonna, as it was seemingly made more for a...

    Beyond Mary Wilson Anthology

    I honestly don't think we will see any Mary Wilson releases beyond the Anthology from last year. Mainly highlighting the fact that it rereleased her 1979 LP[[which was not a hit and polarizing since...

    I agree that it was best that they didn't get married. I read in one of the books that although they were a romantic couple that Berry's main interest in Diana was her career. Can you imagine what...

    Congratulations to Miss Ross for her lucky #13 Grammy Nomination, her first since "Muscles". I was happy to have seen her nominated.

    Very interesting. I always wondered why the speech has never seen the light of day. Mary always did speak quite well and was quite good at being off the cuff. Interesting that both Mary and Cindy...

    Motown saturated the market with the new Supremes. It probably didn't help the group gain a foothold in the market. They did well with the first 3 singles, but by releasing River Deep so close to...

    From what I have read, Mary delivered the unseen speech in a tight black gown and changed into the red one for the finale. If you look at the Supremes compared to some other Motown groups, yes those...

    I never saw what Mary did as such a major incident. So she wore a different color dress, added words to a speech, moved side by side when singing and sang lead when Miss Ross quit singing. It seemed...

    I think Motown was looking to draw a bit of a younger audience, the British NuWave was kind of growing at that time. Adam Ant was the wrong artist singing the wrong song. There were plenty of artists...

    I remember reading that Florence was told she was back on a "trial basis" and considering what had went down, would have infuriated any human being. It had to be mentally exhausting to be put in that...

    It was sad that the last time Mary and Cindy performed together was at Motown 45. They were with Kelly Rowland so it wasn't 3 actual Supremes. Suzanne said she would never have Mary on a show she...

    I really liked this album and thought Jean was sounding way better than the last LP she released with the Supremes [[Jimmy Webb). I thought the single releases were odd choices as there were much...

    1972 was a particularly strong year for Best Actress performances. Of course, I was behind Diana Ross 1000% because she was amazing in her film debut. I have seen a lot on You Tube that was in...

    Mary's book did not derail Diana's career, lack of good music during that time did. Diana had a huge legion of fans and the general public was still buying her music until the songs were no longer...

    It was a baffling statement. Certainly, Cindy had to have an idea that she wasn't replacing Mary since she was working with her to learn the songs and routines. I mean, would you think you would join...

    I sincerely wrestled with responding to this, but it bothered me so I have to respond. RTL failed for a number of reasons. Diana and Mary and the Promoters share blame. Mary did accept the 4 million...

    The first record I ever bought was Up The Ladder To The Roof. I would always have favorite songs that I liked personally but knew they wouldn't be the best choice for a single release. To be honest,...

    Touch was a very strong album. I think it contains some of the best vocals that Jean Terrell recorded-very strong, fullbodied and emotional. I also loved hearing Mary Wilson share the lead vocals on...
