    The girls hired a housekeeper to help with cleaning the house, but they realize she isn't doing anything so they fired her. However all this bad luck occurs to them leading the girls to believe she...

    Mary and Cindy are there, but with additional help, but I don't believe it's the Andantes. Possibly the Blackberries or Brenda Joyce Evans and Billie Rae Calvin of the Undisputed Truth who were doing...

    The master tape. The one that was rolling as it recorded the song. The answer is on that multitrack master tape. Isolate the background and you'll hear it.

    I do. She sings the intro on PJ’s “T.L.C. (Tender Lovin’ Care)” and she’s the prominent soprano on the Supremes’ version of “His Love Makes Me Beautiful.”
  7. The answer is on the tape. When you have audible...

    The answer is on the tape. When you have audible proof, all word and hearsay doesn’t have weight. The fact is it is Diana, Mary & Marlene on “Reflections,” “You Can’t Hurry Love,” and a handful of...

    "Reflections" band track was cut March 2, 1967. In that same session, HDH cut "The Happening" and an unused "In And Out Of Love" track. Diana, Mary & Marlene added their vocals to "Reflections" on...

    Mary will never publicly admit Flo isn't on "You Can't Hurry Love" and "Reflections," two of their biggest hits, but then again she may not fully remember. She'll assume it's Flo because those tracks...

    Motown recorded the Velvelettes' live set at the Roostertail. It's still unreleased.

    I wish Universal would release these live shows as a part of series like Motown at the Roostertail or Motown...

    This has been discussed before. The article is wrong in stating Flo is on "Reflections." She's not. It's Mary and Marlene Barrow. It's very obvious when you isolate the vocals.

    There was a TV show that aired from the Pier called the 'Summertime On The Pier' hosted by Ed Hurst. There's a photo of DMC with him on the show floating around. It would have been Cindy's first TV...

    Indeed! The fact color footage exists of the Red Skelton Show appearance makes me wonder what else is in the Motown film archives.

    The photos of them in their gowns are from the 1968 show they did at the Forum with Stevie Wonder. They’re featured in the Soul Illustrated magazine that reads “Winter 1968” at the top. Want further...

    The photo of Willie on stage with Diana and in a headlock with Mary is not the same show as the one you just posted photos of the girls in their personal clothes. They appeared at the Forum in 1968...

    Mary’s wig is very similar to Diana’s. Believe me, it’s Mary with Willie in a headlock.

    I wondered about this and this was my assessment...

    Motown never owned the gowns because the label never paid for them so Motown didn't have any grounds to claim ownership. The girls paid for...

    I'm puzzled why it stalled #13. It's a definite top 5 hit record. I thought it had a similar case to the Supremes' "Nothing But Heartaches" where the top 10 was so crammed with legendary songs that...

    Yeah, I don't think it has much of a Motown Sound to it. Definitely R&B/Soul, but Motown was hard to come close to in sound. Unless it had several Funk Brothers playing on it like the Invictus/Hot...

    Anybody can make changes on Wikipedia. I’ve noticed a battle of changes on the “You Can’t Hurry Love” and “Reflections” pages where it goes back and forth between Mary & Flo to Mary & Marlene. Both...

    Marlene’s voice had a similar timbre to Flo’s. Listen to “Slow Down” during the line “How could she love him.” That’s Mary & Marlene. It sounds like Flo, but it isn’t.

    Compare “Any Girl In Love”...

    That’s because it’s the Andantes, not Mary & Flo. HDH just took the track they did for Kim Weston and added Diana. Mary & Flo weren’t added.

    Unfortunately Mary & Flo are not on this. Those harmonies are the Andantes.

    That was what I envisioned and hoped for the book. Some of it is in the gown section and the photographs of the detailed beading/sequins is stunning. It's beautiful to see them in stage lights, but I...
