    My point being the background vocals on "Good News" aren't among their best. Mary is shouting over Diana, when the harmony would've sounded better the other way around. Not necessarily that Diana...

    And Mary had more leads than Otis. Dennis was a lead singer in the group. Nobody considered the Temptations to be Dennis' group. After the exits of most of the Big 5, the Temptations was Otis' and...

    Stop rewriting history, please and thank you. No one knew who Diana Ross was without the Supremes. Those records said "Supremes". The concert and television performances were of the Supremes, not...

    That's an excellent point. Had this been an idea originally conceived as a Supremes only thing, the approach may have been different from Diana. Emphasis on "may". But for it to spring out of a Diana...

    Agreed Carlo, especially when one of the players is a superstar in their own right. When the subject has come up before, I always ask the question of who expects Tito to get the same money as...

    That would've been perfect. At least one song on the new album.

    Good point about the videos. I remember loving the "Swept Away" and "Eaten Alive" videos as a kid.

    I'm definitely not hearing what some of the rest of you are hearing in terms of additional singles on TMITM. To my ears the album's success is in the cohesiveness of the tracks; a perfect example of...

    Duh!:cool:

    Actually, "Heartaches" really was one of my absolute favs for the longest time and then it sort of fell out of favor with me. I suspect that it may have had something to do with my go...

    But he was the one who produced "Let Me Go the Right Way". So if his goal was always this fabled crossover female, and he had set his sights on Diana for the job, why cut and release and apparently...

    I definitely noticed there were times during the R&H cuts that Flo is on the bottom. I suspect it is here that she might have been having some vocal issues. But it all does come across so...

    But that just goes to show that RCA leadership was apparently on a constant 80s coke binge. The first day of Central Park has gone down in music and television history. I'm still confused about what...

    I suspect Motown's "Fools" would've been far more funkier than the karaoke crap that ended up at RCA. I think I might deem "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" to be Diana's worst single ever, even worst than...

    Okay, I see my question has been answered. Since that time, Mary appears to have done very well for herself. Diana is uber wealthy because of her position in the Supremes, which launched her into...

    When did she have to borrow money from friends? Is that the Diana thing 40 years ago?

    Like I said before, that was Jean's fault for believing she could come into Mary's group and have her way. I can't imagine a Temptation coming in during the 70s and 80s and on thinking they were...

    How cool is that! Thanks Carlo. I won't be buying it, as I'm slightly older than it's target audience. But definitely a cool find. Just goes to show how iconic the original trio and their story...

    Sadly you're often in the minority with that type of thinking. Most young people aren't thinking much further ahead than next weekend. So consider yourself truly blessed.
