    And that's probably not what Berry want. I feel he was pretty strategic about "his girls". He didn't want them to sound like any other girl group. Which is why they were mad that they couldn't get a...

    All I say about "He's Seventeen" - as well as...

    All I say about "He's Seventeen" - as well as most of the Supremes' early years - is that this group were diamonds in the rough for real. Neither member was vocally polished as they would be by the...

    It can be argued the success of "Itching" enabled Motown to record more danceable material though more songs on that "get off your butt and jam" type of records were building up even before then from...

    "Sign" started strong but ended up flat. It was obvious the producers who got with the Supremes after HDH left had no idea what to do with em. :/

    "Itching" seems tailor-made for Martha. :) I could even see Marvin getting down to it (albeit in a different tone lol).

    Yeah, in the Supremes fan base, this would be an offensive comment, and I definitely understand if folks get mad with me about it but the truth is if you're not a Supremes fan or if you were just a...

    I forgot about the Motown country label in the '60s.

    Yeah but how memorable is it?

    Most considered the Supremes to be "over" after "Stoned Love". Some may know "Nathan Jones", but if you ask them about "Floy Joy" unless they're that deep a music...
  9. It took a while but Madonna, I think, has finally...

    It took a while but Madonna, I think, has finally fallen off. She had a steadier run than most. Like how many artists you knew had top tens stretching nearly 30 years (28 years to be exact)? But I...

    And to be fair, not too many producers really gel with what she was going for. Only HDH, Ashford & Simpson, Hal Davis, Michael Masser and CHIC knew how to produce her. IMHO. Though I could argue with...

    I didn't ask about them though.

    I can EASILY tell you why SOME of Aretha's records flopped (more due to awful music than her age; most of Through the Storm and What You See Is What You Sweat were...
  12. For those who think it was just her age, which...

    For those who think it was just her age, which songs from 1985-95 would've hit for y'all in the United States?

    Oh, "You Keep Me Hangin' On" was FONKY, ya heard me? FONKY! That Morse Code-like guitar riff that carried on and began the track, you knew what was up!

    I did recall Diana and RCA bumping heads. As Rick Bueche said, when Diana was at Motown, she got the preferential treatment and was the preferred artist. At RCA, she was just another recording...

    Tina had Roger Davies. Patti had her husband Armstead, who without her, her career wouldn't have really took off after she left Labelle. I don't know who was managing Barbra or Cher.
  17. It wasn't age that got Diana. It was probably the...

    It wasn't age that got Diana. It was probably the fact that she managed herself after leaving Motown. When you're as ambitious running your own company, it could either be great or tragic.
  18. Not a big fan of the Scherrie years (not taking...

    Not a big fan of the Scherrie years (not taking anything from her), but I agree, after Jean left, the Supremes became like any other girl group out there and not the ALMIGHTY Supremes. This is why...

    Y'all do know Motown tried a country label in the early 80s, right? LOL I'm not surprised country musicians covered Motown. Think Barbara Mandrell covered "More Love".
  20. I know. I think it's one of their greatest songs...

    I know. I think it's one of their greatest songs personally!

    Diana was 40-41 during the "Swept Away" era. She was 39 when "Ross", a flop, came out.

    She was also dealing with the fallout of Motown 25, the PR baggage after doing the second Central Park...

    People like to dismiss the original Supremes for being "whitebread" but there was definitely a streetwise vibe to some of their records and this song is a perfect example.
  23. She endorsed online. But not in person.

    She endorsed online. But not in person.

    Love to see two icons mixing up their versions! RIP, Marvin, William and Edward.

    Not quite the record that made Stevie an icon but it showed great insight into his future especially with the title track and his cover of We Can Work It Out. Never Had a Dream Come True and Heaven...
