    LOL Come on now. You gotta like me even when you think I make no sense.

    Well first you have to consider that I am not a fan of the Chic sound for anyone, although I concede that commercially it...

    IMO "Mirror, Mirror", "Swept Away", and "Missing You" was better than "Reach Out I'll Be There", "My Mistake", "Last Time I Saw Him", "Theme From Mahogany" (a song I LOATH), "Your Love Is So Good For...

    The last single Barbara cut with the group was "Your Heart Belongs to Me" and it appears this was the last session for her. I'm unaware of any studio recordings Barbara did in 1962. The next time the...

    That's my fav version too Reese. Here's hoping that in the event the Sam Cooke album gets an expanded, maybe there's a version of the song without a fade and we get to hear the full Flo letting loose...

    I know what you mean!:D Too bad Gordy didn't have the Supremes recording any gospel tunes around this time where they were in the studio doing a little bit of everything. Florence would've ripped...

    A Worthy Flo Thread

    The 60s Supremes recorded a ton of covers, especially when you factor in all the MOR stuff. From what I can tell, the MOR stuff is so great because it lends itself to different interpretations, so...

    That's an odd bit of trivia. I wonder what their problem was with one another? Usually the Supremes you hear the most about as how well they got on with others is Cindy, Scherrie and Flo (Flo's...

    Gladys had two gold albums during this period and while she wasn't putting up worthy numbers pop, she, along with the Pips, cut some big successful singles during that time too, songs that have held...

    I believe Gordy got satisfaction out of folks like Mary Wells, Flo Ballard, even Mary Wilson, failing to find success outside of Motown. I don't believe he was that petty when it came to Diana...

    Artistically, a duet album between them after they had both left Motown would've been HUGE if all of the right pieces came together to make it an artistic and then commercial success.

    The singer/songwriting thing was popular at the time for actual singer/songwriters. That was not the Supremes, so I fail to see how that factors into the pros for this direction. It was just a poor...

    I agree (except for "Summertime"). I'll have to think about album cuts that are as or near as brilliant as her Motown stuff, but I'm not sure I'll be able to come up with anything.

    I think "Mirror, Mirror" was as good as the Chic stuff, and it resonated with the public because it was hip and a good fit. Of course I cannot explain how "Fools" the single became a hit, other than...

    1000 percent agree. Producing just isn't her strong point. I think she's a producer's dream as a vocalist. She should've milked that.

    Yeah, that's another good concept. There were a ton of classic Motown cuts recorded by non Motown artists during the 70s, so the Supremes doing a cover album might have worked. Maybe.
