    if you look at some of the Supremes' songs, they fit this too. Love Is Here is probably not one of the most immediately recognizable hits. If you went out to the general public, most might say...

    this is the first i've heard about the Diana role in this and very interesting! always fun to compare these subtle differences in stories and history.

    I think a full Mary lead on people would have been quite nice. there have been a few bootlegs of Flo's live version and then the (IMO) ghastly studio version for the aborted There's A Place lp. ...

    i don't know that i would say "no hit potential" but i don't think it was a lost #1. If released as a single, i think it would have definitely gone top 40 and probably top 20.

    as for People, if they were doing the big revamp of the show around the start of 67 to include both YKMHO and Love is here, it wouldn't surprise me to find out that People was dropped around that...

    agreed. the majority of the songs are pretty poor. like they quickly signed mary, rushed her into the studio and assigned her to Hal. Hal just had to grab whatever songs were around or in enough...

    what i was saying is that, in the end, no other company DID do anything with them. "interest" doesn't mean a pile of crap if there's no tangible outcome from it. Execs can say they're "interested"...

    oh i love it too. i just think as a lead single, Save Me might have clicked more than a ballad, albeit a gorgeous one. especially around 1980 with disco and dance still so hot.

    what's truly odd is that 1) motown gave her the masters for these songs and 2) no other recording company would do anything with them

    seems very peculiar that motown even bothered to schedule...

    i think Save Me should have been the lead single from whatever her second album would have been with these 4 tunes (plus whatever else). It's pop and dance and rock. a good mix for her voice and...

    interesting to hypothesize if she'd stayed with motown - would she have had more creative outlets? berry certainly understood this concept and might have been a more willing executive to support it....

    i think Diana's work with American jazz legends is as equally as wonderful as Bab's broadway work. but it's too bad she's been so narrow in her focus only on Billie Holiday. yes in many of her...

    actually neither a film or play on The Supremes will ever happen because neither Diana Ross nor Berry will allow it. you'd have to get permission from the owner of the Jobete catalog to use the...

    i think though that through the early 80s, she made much more of an attempt to change her image, sound and look. in the 80s though, she seemed to settle into a comfortable mold
