    I guess this is the part of business I'll never understand. Mary and Scherrie and Susaye were under contract to Motown. So how exactly did Mary turn management over to Pedro? Wouldn't he have had to...

    While I don't dispute what you heard, on what four legs could S and S stand on, not letting Mary back into the group she created?

    As it turns out, Sherrie was right. Mary continued to tour as a Supreme in one form or another. I always wondered why this Farewell of Mary [[which turned out to be the Farewell of the Official...

    Just another random thought: it shows how invested Motown was in the Supremes in 1970 that when Diana left, they had already contacted Jean, JMC had already started recording, and had photos taken...

    Ran, I absolutely agree with you. I think the Supremes carrying on without Mary was a lot of wishful thinking. They would have needed all new gowns. New management. New band? I assume The Supremes...

    This book isn't a Flo Ballard biography? Well you could have fooled me, with Flo Ballard's name and face on the cover. If this truly was a "Nicole Chapman Story", why isn't her name in lights? The...

    "The Supremes" After Mary

    Expanding on the 1977 "Farewell Concert" thread, I have a few questions:

    One would assume that engagements were booked well in advance; weeks, if not months. So were there dates on the Supremes...

    From wiki: Susaye Greene has stated in several on-line interviews that she does not recall the concert specifically [[it was just another engagement at that time, as Scherrie and Susaye planned to...

    Hopefully as things open up, Diana and the FLOs will have more opportunities to perform this year. I'm sure Scherrie and Susaye will incorporate some sort of tribute to Mary and the original grouping.

    Would be nice if it were a career retrospective, including some of her Supremes-lead solos like "Come and Get These Memories" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You", plus some of the unreleased solos...

    For some reason, I was totally prepared not to like "Thank you". Perhaps based on some of the feedback from this forum? After giving it a few listens, I don't know. I REALLY like this. I find myself...

    I would dispute Mary's claim that "Someday" was the final song, based on listening to the bootleg concert.

    Interesting to see that by this time, the 60's songs were in a short medley, and other...

    I misunderstood; sorry!

    I thought that the concert was a bit "short", just coming in under an hour.

    Here's the info, from Wiki:

    Set list:

    "Everybody Gets To Go To The Moon"/"Corner Of...

    At the time, wasn't this one of the only Supremes/DRATS albums to have never been issued on CD? I think GIT might be the only other one?

    Not sure what you have heard, but if you listen to the recording, the last song definitely is "IGLMHDTW". Scherrie, Susaye, and Mary ad lib a lot of "bye byes" and at the end, Scherrie says "bye bye,...

    I wholeheartedly agree! I wish artists would just sing the song and not over enunciate! Much like Diana always likes to end every word with the letter "a"!
