    Funny how when people who were there say anything about a Supremes recording, the conversation goes left or right depending on that person's opinion on what they think they heard.

    I heard the song...

    The Chapmans are doing great. Florence and Tommy would be proud of them right now.

    LMAO!!!

    I imagine they argued a lot while making all those hits... :D

    I did say that they stayed there before they really hit the top. They stayed there until 1965.

    I have to read CHMR again... I guess Brewster starts getting rough around 62-63?
  7. Yeah, Motown started to expand their base to...

    Yeah, Motown started to expand their base to California around 1964 (shortly after signing Brenda Holloway, who was hesitant of recording in Detroit so Motown set up base for her in L.A.). Quite...

    I'm listening to this album by an artist like H.E.R. and she's pretty damn good. The Grammys just nominated her for tons of awards including Album and Record of the Year. Just take a listen. It may...

    I got that information from Fred Ross, the father of you know who. Lol

    Not saying Brewster wasn't without trouble even in those early years (or any other Detroit city for that matter, I mean I...
  10. Yeah but it wasn't a dangerous neighborhood....

    Yeah but it wasn't a dangerous neighborhood. Wasn't exactly middle class but it was still above most black populated areas in Detroit before the late 1960s.

    ^ H&O eventually did record it years later but by then, Dan was unfortunately gone.

    Y'all know he produced James Brown's final pop hit, right? :)
  13. Oh did she? I need to read Dreamgirl again lol

    Oh did she? I need to read Dreamgirl again lol
  14. And Motown wasn't the only label where artists...

    And Motown wasn't the only label where artists had to play the PR game. For years, the Supremes had to say they were "project girls" when the Brewster Projects that they grew up in was much nicer...
  15. Circa claims that Mary called in on his radio...

    Circa claims that Mary called in on his radio show and when he asked her if she ever gave money to Florence's children, she said she changed her mind.

    She also apparently lied about the group...
  16. Dionne, Aretha and Whitney were the greatest pure...

    Dionne, Aretha and Whitney were the greatest pure voices in the world but neither of them could put down the cigarette (though in Whitney's case, she was also overworked to death). :/
  17. I don't think the doc told the full truth to be...

    I don't think the doc told the full truth to be honest.

    There seems to be some emphasis that Whitney, a woman who grew up in a middle class East Orange, New Jersey neighborhood as the daughter of...
  18. Miss Ross sure loves that red! :D

    Miss Ross sure loves that red! :D

    I may need to hear the Christmas album again. But I recall my brother had "My Favorite Things" on his Christmas mix CD and to be honest, I can see that the Andantes would've been on it and not Mary &...

    "Motown didn't value the Andantes."

    The same could be said for virtually every other act signed on there including, yes, all three original Supremes.

    Funny that happens, huh?
  21. Mary and Flo are on the 45 version lol The...

    Mary and Flo are on the 45 version lol

    The Andantes add background harmonies. Those "ahhhhs" that appear when Diana hits the bridge before the "think it overs" come in are the Andantes. THAT'S...

    Right. Great talent IS out there but it gets ignored by the same people who think music has "died". You just can't take their opinions seriously. And Patti is a boomer lol so she's probably given the...

    Or Lemonade lol

    Then again, she recently praised Ariana Grande's vocals so make with that as you will... lol

    ^ That's precisely WHY I posted it. These days, people only know her as the cousin of Whitney but Dionne really predated everyone as one of the first global black pop stars during the early 1960s. :)...

    It could work...with someone else producing it lol

    I love her version of Too Shy to Say on Baby It's Me (I think it was on Baby It's Me anyway, correct me if I'm wrong).
