    I consider Diana Ross to be a very good vocalist, just as I feel all members of the Supremes were very good vocalists. I bought this single back in the day, and I really liked it tremendously even...

    I always liked the song well enough. I think Mary did rather well on lead, adding a certain sexiness to the vocals. There was always too much choreography in the group during the MSC and MSS days....

    I wouldn't say the Supremes were completely ignored, it does seem they did not get treated the same as when Diana Ross was in the group. They were no longer the #1 priority in the company. Far from...

    1970-Motown & The Supremes

    I have been looking in hindsight at Motown in 1970 and the Supremes, and I have a few opinions[[that are definitely just my own). As much as I love the Supremes and that Up The Ladder to the Roof was...

    I personally do not think it would have been a good idea. When Jean and Lynda left, the Supremes were without a record contract for about 2 years and that lost the momentum for the group. JML still...

    I prefer this version much more to the other I am familiar with. I thought it was a very pale imitation of I Feel Love. This version, the singing seems to shine through in the mix. I don't think it...

    First, it was a different era, second the mass public was used to only one soprano lead with a backup concerning the Supremes and third the public was used to shared vocals with TLC and Spice Girls,...

    Stoned Love was the biggest hit for the 70's Supremes, it was strange NWBLS did not chart so well. It could have been the cover or the multiple song covers. Strange, there were a number of very good...

    I never did care for this song very much, it felt like a bland imitation of Donna Summer's I Feel Love. It just didn't move me like most of Ross' songs do. Fortunately, next year she came back with...

    Forever Came Today had a lot of potential, so from reading here it was rush released because HDH were going to leave. It was certainly better than Somethings You Never Get Used To, The Composer and...

    I actually won the Floy Joy LP off of the radio. I had bought the singles but wasn't sure if I wanted to buy the LP. Jean had such strong vocals on Touch, that Floy Joy seemed like something else. I...

    I loved Touch, I felt it contained the strongest vocals by Jean Terrell and it was so wonderful to hear Mary Wilson co lead on a song. I actually won Floy Joy off of the radio, I had bought the...

    I have always wondered about Florence's solo career. I did wonder what type of show she had, even for that short amount of time. Since so many people felt she was such a great singer, I wondered what...

    I hope that no one feels I brought any negativity here. I just feel Mary's loss so profoundly and without her , I also felt a loss of the vibrancy she gave to the legacy of the Supremes. Without her,...

    Now that Mary Wilson is no longer with us, I was wondering who will carry on and protect the Supremes legacy. I know there are many hardcore fans who will do what they can but we are all limited by...

    I didn't even bother to look. I find it rather tacky especially if Time Life superimposed Florence's head on Cindy's body.

    Ow! This was definitely not where I was wanting this to go. I was just noting the change in Ross' vocals and the hurried, rush tempos of the songs without the crafting of HDH may have contributed to...

    I didn't say I dislike it but to my ears the screeching of Owww was probably something that the general public was not used to hearing Ross do. She certainly had a distinctive voice that was very...

    I hear it when they are doing the signs and she is screeching Oww in response along with yeah, yeah,yeah.I am not saying it is horrible but not the usual Ross vocals

    The Diana Ross & The Supremes era really had spotty chart action, aside from the 2 chart toppers-Love Child in 1968 and Someday We'll Be Together in 1969.Once it became DRATS, there was virtually...

    60 years of the Supremes

    In 1961, the Supremes were signed to Motown and in 1964 they had their first #1 hit. So much has been written or suggested or assumed about the group. I have my own perceptions that I wanted to...

    I personally love it. I admit in 1979, I was slightly disappointed that the release was so disco oriented. I always loved I Love A Warm Summer Night and Midnight Dancer. I didn't care for Red Hot as...

    Vocally, I think this was one of their best tv versions of He's My Man. Mary sings it much stronger than normal as opposed to her softer interpretations on tv and record. Granted, her mike is...

    The Supremes would never have continued without Mary Wilson. I think Motown felt a little loyalty to her, but were not very supportive. Motown chose Jean, but Mary was instrumental in the selection...
