    question is did HDH intend it for a single? and same with In and Out? were they still actively involved in this or were they already MIA to some degree?

    in 65 [[other than the specialty...

    completely agree this is all relative. just like the 70s sups had 4 gold records, lots of top tv appearances, strong chart action. if it was any other group, including any other motown group, that...

    i still think there was an opportunity for the Sups to do their version of "women's lib." of course they were never going to be wildly militant and all. but Pam Sawyer had worked heavily with Frank...

    in general there was a shift away from the formality and glamour of the earlier 60s. gone were the more formal dresses, suits and ties. pop artists were getting more casual, grungier, long hair,...

    but that's sort of the question i posed to the forum - the "what if"

    i think your assessment is 100% accurate. Motown was driven by sales and revenue. they weren't interested in making "art" but...

    lol it's certainly dark and morose enough to have been!

    it could have been the album closer. lol

    good point - GH was released in August and hit #1 in late Oct. was at 1 for 5 weeks and in the top 10 for 22 weeks. it was clearly THE motown album for the holiday season. I can only imagine how...

    nice!! i always feel happy and proud when the Sups or DR are used in current media like this!

    I like the song and it was a great idea for an opener to Ross 83. but i've always felt like DR was...
  9. yeah and that's sort of the curious point here. ...

    yeah and that's sort of the curious point here. 1967 had built on an equally strong 1966. 66 had 2 top 10 singles and 2 #1 plus the first #1 album. 67 had 2 #1 and 2 top 10s plus a top 10 album...
  10. next audio - MJL doing Love the One You're With at Expo

    now i have always liked this segment of their show. i found the intro funny and entertaining. and i like their version of LTOYW. I think this intro...

    i agree. your comment actually almost sounds like mary's questioning of the whole SL thing. the company had no issued with a single called Stoned Love but worried about an album of the same name. ...

    without the brand "the Supremes" to support Jean at Motown, she would have become another Carolyn Crawford or Blinky. a handful of recordings, most of which would never have been released.

    my...

    Love Child - supposedly the original plan for the LC album was to include socially relevant and mature tunes. less light hearted pop songs like He's My Sunny Boy and You've Been So Wonderful
  14. the Supremes and their version of a "Sgt Pepper" album

    these threads on Reflections, Sunshine have been great! so interesting hearing everyone's POV

    in the mid 60s, the Beach Boys [[with Pet Sounds) and the Beatles [[with Sgt Pepper) pretty much...

    it could be that releases were different in different countries. there are a ton of randomly released albums and 45s around the world and the dates for those could be all over the place. I have a...

    yeah i've heard that too over the years

    with Jean's solo, they did rotate numbers. from what i've heard and gotten on bootlegs, seems like she did People, He ain't heavy, MacArthur Park, the look...

    Always In My Heart is a funeral dirge. lol I can literally hear it being played in the background [[especially that death knell of a drum beat) as Marie Antionette's ramshackle cart creaked up to...

    yeah i think jean's free-willed interpretation of all of the songs became an issue. when she did Stop, yeah she went so far off the rails that it was almost indistinguishable. sometimes you...

    while i think this performance is perfectly fine enough, it was far too tired of a segment in the show by this point. plus it just perfectly illustrates one of the biggest complaints all of us on...

    completely agree. especially on Sunshine and Cream. you could have gone through the vault inventory and carefully selected songs that appeared to have some sort of stylistic or commonality. ...

    great question brad - i always assumed it was the executive producer. or the primary producer. and of course berry surely had a say in it. but did the lp go before QC?

    after Where, BL and...

    so here's another question - when did the "decline" with the albums really start? what was their high-water mark?

    WDOLG and More Hits both were exceptional albums. some might argue that More...

    here's a cool idea! what if they had used a photo or something for a 3D Hologram look?

    what all was their complaint with motown? was it purely financial or were they wanting more leadership within the organization itself? while we know money was a huge aspect of their departure, i...

    hadn't realized the Sept 73 date issue before [[or had forgotten it). so i do really think now that the reason they were cut is that there was the complete collapse of the group. motown was...
