    I remember reading in Mary's book that when Susaye joined she was instrumental in making Mary and Scherrie feel freer in their vocals but then later that Susaye had been ad libbing so much that...

    I respectfully disagree. By 1973, the general public was not embracing Jean's sound. There were constant comparisons to Diana Ross, especially since she had a similar nasal soprano. By 1975, it had...

    That is comforting to hear that Mary received a well deserved tribute. She is still very much missed. So pleased to read she had an extended tribute, thank you for letting us know.

    I believe Mary Wilson wrote that fans had wondered about Tammi Terrell joining the Supremes but that she was too ill. Plus, she already had name recognition for her duets with Marvin Gaye. Jean...

    I would love to see future releases [[on CD, though) of Walk The Line, her singles U and Turn Around as well as her Richard Davis material. I wonder if we will see that in our future. I hope that...

    The Gus Dudgeon tracks were actually terrific. Her work on the ballads Love Talk and You Dance My Heart Around The Stars[[which when finally released on a compilation album in 2018 put her vocals in...
  7. John, Paul, George and Ringo VS Diana, Mary, Flo and Cindy

    The Supremes were the most successful Female group in the 1960's and their popularity rivaled that of the Beatles. Looking at it, I am wondering about something that DIDN'T happen in the 1970's....

    Hopefully they will have it sorted out soon. They have almost a month since the release date isn't until Dec. 3rd. Hope it works out soon for all of my friends across the pond.

    Since at the time she recorded that disco was still very popular, Motown probably wanted to continue to capitalize on that market, witness some of the other releases-even the Boss and diana. I read...

    There wasn't really any push. In The US, in my local newspaper buried in the last pages of the Sunday Entertainment section was a photo of her and a small caption that Mary Wilson was giving up her...

    I would say as far as Mary wanting to choose songs for her debut, she clearly must have remembered that she definitely did not like "Where Did Our Love Go" and was surprised it became a #1 hit. I...

    Thank you, George and Andy. I am most appreciative that this is being released. I finally was able to order my copy. I am looking forward to it in December. I have already downloaded the Expanded...

    Very interesting thread. Naturally, we have read Mary's books and it included Jean but not other Motown Artists. Jean worked with the Temptations on tour and on the Smokey Robinson special, she also...

    A very valid point was brought up regarding communication between Diana, Mary and Florence. They were very good friends and loved each other but they all have said the three of them had very...

    This is an odd and interesting topic. I honestly don't think that every Motown act could be in attendance for Florence's funeral. The company had relocated to California by this time. Florence had no...

    Both Ross and Wilson became partial to message music, the last single from Ross is this and Wilson had Why Can't We All Get Along. Back in '70 both tried message songs that are enduring but didn't...

    What a terrible article. It has nothing new and is just a rehash of old interviews. Skip it, we especially don't need to see certain things dredged up in a positive time when Ross has new material...

    This year is the 60th Anniversary of the Supremes signing to Motown and it seems that it really has not been celebrated like it should have. I have to say that a lot of that is because of the passing...

    It does seem that after such a great start for Diana Ross in 1970 with a #! and The Supremes with 2 Top 10's, that 1971 seemed to have stalled both of them a bit. I seem to see that Motown had in...
