    I don't think there was really another single to be found on the first album. Surrender should've been the followup album and the subsequent singles should've been culled from that. I really like the...

    Y'all definition of "tacky" and mine are apparently two different things. I think she looks great on the cover of WO. No, it wasn't the glamour Ross, but neither was the Diana 80 album cover (which I...

    Dionne's Just Being Myself is my favorite of the Warner Bros albums. I think with a different mix, most of those songs Diana could've done without a problem. But Dionne's Arista period is where...

    Ha! What can I say? It's the best way I could put it in order to get my point across.:p Gladys possessed the type of voice that I think is excellently categorized as a "producer's dream". It's not...

    Copa 65 is the turning point in the group. They are officially more than your run of the mill r&b/pop singers. Still the girls next door, but more mature. Flo and Mary sound great, but it sucks that...

    Interesting viewpoint. I guess it just boils down to what affects you, and how deeply it does so. Honestly when it comes to Dionne, I'm a bigger fan of her post B&D work. She sounds lovely on the...
  7. I don't think she needed the Supremes anymore....

    I don't think she needed the Supremes anymore. The Ross of 1970 was not the Ross of 1966. The DRATS period definitely helped her hone her superstar abilities. But by this time it was a good idea for...

    What's the problem with the cover? It looks just fine to me. I think the cover relays what's in the music. I do prefer the shot from the "This House" single in terms of what appeals to my eye, but it...

    WDFFIL...Just so wrong to have Diana producing her own stuff. It just doesn't work. The album does have some nice melodies like "Never Too Late" and "Think I'm In Love". "Sweet Surrender" is cool....

    I'm gonna work my way backwards...I've never been a fan of the WO album, but it's not really a bad album at all. It's very contemporary. I think with a different vocalist the album would be...

    This just in...the horses are getting back together for the Return of the Marvelettes Horses tour! (ROTMH for short.) But of course there's drama. One of the horses wanted more money so the other two...

    Agreed. I would've given Flo at least one song per album, Mary one song per album, and let Diana do the rest. In the shows Diana would've gotten the majority of songs, but I would've been even more...

    Yes! I'm actually surprised that Mary didn't get a lead on the Sam Cooke album. I thought a couple of those tunes were well within her wheelhouse.

    True. Not that "Shake" wasn't a good closer. They rock it.

    Alright Mister man!:p

    I'm confused about the last part. Why do you think Diana and Gladys are comparable but not Diana and Dionne? To my ears it's the other way around. There's nothing similar in...

    It's not an exciting album, which I imagine is why it's not always high up on some fans' list of favorites. Nearly everything about it is mellow. It's the kind of album you put on after a long day...

    Of the Jean years, I think Right On and Floy Joy were expertly put together from first song to last. It all fits. New Ways not so much and yeah, Touch comes close but is thrown off by "Time and Love".

    Thanks for the lesson in Supremes history. Who would've known that the album was so big in Brazil?

    Smokey seemed to love the African and Latin styles as I noticed the influence on a lot of his...

    It's been quite some time since I listened to the Roostertail show in it's entirety so I'll have to listen out for what you speak of. Personally I loved Flo's ad libs during the Sam Cooke medley when...

    In Martha's book she says in the early days of the Del Phis and Primettes they would "battle" each other and sometimes the Del Phis won, sometimes the Primettes. So it wasn't a vocal thing IMO. But...

    Another way of saying that- at least for me anyway- is to say the Supremes' set was boring. Look at the Velvelettes' list. There's no comparing on which set of songs would resonate more with the...

    I LOVE "Over and Over". Don't think it was single material though. I think "Wonderful" needed a different mix and "Automatically Sunshine" might have needed some punch but otherwise was a damn good...

    I'm not a fan of "Wonderful Sweet Love", "Now the Bitter" or the title cut. Other than that, I agree, perfect album.;)

    I think hooking the ladies up with Smokey was a good move. I wonder what a followup album would've been like. Certainly a better option than Jimmy Webb.

    Yeah Tom, this is a great one from Stevie. I pull this one out when I'm in a certain kind of mood. Everything about it, kills.
