    Besides the bad feelings between Flo and Gordy, Flo was under contract to ABC so that was a factor. Also at issue was Flo's weight fluctuations, which was now heavier than ever and Florence's temper...

    This was too busy and distracting from the band. This was Sullivan's last year. His ratings were tanking and he resorted to desperate measures. Wish the band had done this live.

    I woke up to this news. Even though you know this day is coming it doesn't make it any easier. The Supremes are now history and Mary helped make them iconic.

    Ronnie Spector had a nice tonal quality but she lacked the range and the power. Her vibrato was always out of control. I don't think any other record company would have been interested in them. ...

    The biggest mystery to me was Kiki Dee. Her lp and first single were on the Tamla label. Then her only charted Motown single Love Makes The World Go 'Round was on the Rare Earth label.

    This never would have happened. By 1979 Gordy had wanted Mary out of Motown for years. Smokey always went along with Gordy. The solo lp was the company's way of getting rid of Mary. It was doomed...

    I also question the validity of this chart simply by pointing out that the Spice Girls only issued 3 lps, the Supremes 29. By sheer volume the Supremes would have easily outsold the Spice Girls...

    This list is based on "claimed sales." The Supremes peaked in the 1960s when Motown did their accounting manually and not with sophisticated software. The accountings were horribly inaccurate.

    I saw this when it originally aired. My impression then and now is that she had a gorgeous voice but not much in the way of stage presence. Syreeta was more reserved. It got better as time went on...

    It was definitely not single material. Her version pretty well stuck to the original. I love her debut lp but I think there were too many covers. Why do Keep An Eye again and speed it up. Maybe...

    Actually I like the mono mix. The problem with this track is that it was obviously rushed and is a poor imitation of the group's previous hit.
