    I have never even heard of Kleer before! They must have been pretty well known to warrant an 8-CD box set. Will have to listen to some of their music to see if any of it is familiar.

    Any idea where from? This must have been when they both recorded for Atlantic Records. I think they both had early starts on the King label. Sometimes with King, it's hard to know, as they leased...

    I actually thought this performance was very well done except for some of the awkward choreography [[whose idea was it to flail around with that red satin material?). But song selection and...

    Yes it has been documented that they had split up the year before the album was released. I think likely they wanted a more contemporary photo rather than an old one which would more or less date the...

    “Better than shit?” Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but I guess an improvement over what you thought of the album before!

    Still, a very thoughtful review of the album’s tracks and I agree with...

    I absolutely agree with @mistercarter2u. I consider this album nearly flawless from start to finish. I have always been aware that this is my favorite of any Supremes lineup, likely because itís the...

    you are correct. In fact, I just saw that CD recently in a used record store. I thought about buying it but they wanted something like $20 for it. I think I had heard the “we meet again“ album...

    @GrahamJarvis,

    What a fun collection and how interesting to read about these different variants. I am surprised to read she was touring a little more than 10 years ago as Iím sure I have read she...

    That is so funny! Of course, if my mom were still with us, she wouldn’t be surprised at all. She always thought she was right about everything! Thanks for the comment.

    @nomis,

    What I always found so interesting about this song is that it was designed to be and succeeded as what I call a “instant standard.“ Gordy even created a new music publishing company, called Stein and...

    Can you folks share what you know about the album? I haven’t heard anything about it. Maybe it’s in a thread I missed.

    I’m sure you are correct about that. I am no musical expert, just a music lover. But to me their voices had very similar qualities and evoked much the same vibes, except David’s added that soaring...

    I've always thought that Paul's voice was very much like David Ruffin's, but without that edge to it that gave Ruffin's voice its character and charisma. I think perhaps their voices were too...

    I probably shouldn’t have made that statement having not been very familiar with the score. I’m going to find it and listen to it. Thanks for the clarification.

    Yes, it is a business and not a "wish fulfillment factory," whatever that is. But if they want my business, there will need to be a physical CD.
