    I am bout halfway through side 1 and I am so impressed how clear and crisp everything sounds. The booklet and CD is produced so very well. Mary's voice is so beautiful and warm.
  2. I am about halfway through side 1. I am so...

    I am about halfway through side 1. I am so impressed with how clear and how good everything sounds. Mary's voice is sublime and she sounds even better with this clearly cleaned up and remastered...
  3. I am quite excited that I received an email that...

    I am quite excited that I received an email that it will be sent out. I bought one from Real Gone and one from Amazon, just in case. I am sure once we have our copies we can discuss it. Since it is...
  4. Carlo, I agree with you. I think that Mary...

    Carlo, I agree with you. I think that Mary herself said when she wrote Dreamgirl that she was perceived as a piece of cotton that floated in the wind. That certainly wasn't true. Most people only...
  5. I don't think it was malicious on Diana Ross'...

    I don't think it was malicious on Diana Ross' part. I am guessing that she wanted to pay tribute to the late Sidney Poitier and wanted to show a picture of the two of them together. I looked myself...
  6. I am sure Real Gone wants to make the most money...

    I am sure Real Gone wants to make the most money it can and by having this available, maybe garner some new fans to them to buy other products. I think some transparency as to the delays would help....
  7. The Supremes, my history as a fan

    I have a different perspective of the Supremes than a number of the posters here. I became a fan of the group in 1970 through an older friend of mine. The first record I ever bought was Up The Ladder...
  8. Of course, Mary and Diana did not look at Cindy...

    Of course, Mary and Diana did not look at Cindy the same way they looked at Florence. She didn't start the group with them. Even Cindy herself acknowledged herself as the new girl when Jean joined...
  9. As we leave 2021 and move into 2022

    2021 was a year that is marked with the loss of Mary Wilson. For Supremes fans, that meant a loss that is irreversible and painful. Yet, it also brought the release of her solo album and some...

    Yes, they are ringing in the New Year in Alaska. I hope they stay safe what with the Omicron variant so rampant. I hope someday to see them perform live. Yes, Mary would have been somewhere and 2021...
  11. As much as I love Jean's voice, I do prefer the...

    As much as I love Jean's voice, I do prefer the multi-lead version by Mary, Scherrie & Cindy a bit more. Mary must have felt some kinship to Joni Mitchell as she sang Both Sides Now in her Up Close...
  12. I personally still feel so much because of Mary...

    I personally still feel so much because of Mary Wilson's untimely and surprising passing. The fact that we have had the streaming of her 1979 album was wonderful. I am looking forward to this CD...

    It was lovely to see Mary Wilson being remembered and for such a nice assessment of her vocals. I very much appreciated reading this article. Well done.

    This was very good for the Diana Ross & The Supremes grouping. Even though Miss Ross is clearly highlighted, you can hear it as a real group effort and Miss Wilson and Miss Birdsong also sound great....
  16. Flo had a strong and powerful voice. I like her...

    Flo had a strong and powerful voice. I like her voice, she sounds similar in power to Etta James. When she did hold notes long, her pitch did waver. My personal taste in voices, I prefer Diana and...
  17. You can't beat the original classic All About...

    You can't beat the original classic All About Eve. A remake with Mariah and Diana may have worked during Diana's Double Platinum days but not now. Diana is an excellent actress, especially in Lady...

    You're Nobody Question

    I have just finished reading Freda Payne's autobiography and in it she alleges that she was Berry Gordy's first choice as a female artist but she declined the contract. She alleges Berry saw her...
  19. The 1975 Supremes comeback album was an excellent...

    The 1975 Supremes comeback album was an excellent introduction to new member Scherrie Payne and wonderful in that Mary Wilson was singing leads on other tunes besides a spotlighted ballad lead, plus...

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I certainly can understand the disappointment in the delays, the UK fans not having access to the CD and the Amazon in Canada raising the price. I...

    I wonder why it has never been released on Blu Ray, etc. I can only think that it had something to do with George Schlatter productions and Motown. I also wonder if the artists themselves would be...

    I know, I see 12/17 but the email said the end of the year. It certainly is a disappointment and the different dates are confusing. Yet, it will come and I certainly will not be cancelling just...

    I personally always loved the warmth and beauty of Mary Wilson's voice. Her voice really grounded the Supremes. I found her voice slightly less distinctive than Ross, Terrell, Payne or Greene but it...
  24. I remember reading in Mary's book that when...

    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...
  25. I respectfully disagree. By 1973, the general...

    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...
