    As did Martha with Sugar n Spice, Natural Resources, and finally, Black Magic.
  2. Gordy was a visionary and ambitious beyond...

    Gordy was a visionary and ambitious beyond comprehension, but he was also a hack. I don’t think the concept of a concept album was something that he could conceive of. I can understand him not trying...

    Absolutely, with 3 of those over the 2 Million mark - my guess is that only the Beatles and the monkeys had a better track record in the US at that time. And as you said, no group keeps up that pace...

    I think you are younger than I am, so you might not have been around for this. By 1969 and certainly into the 70s, the women’s movement was in full swing. Glitzing around in sequin dresses, or...

    I like it very much, but I think dirty old man is brilliant.

    After I got the chance to actually try that, I was disappointed. I went back to Prince Charming in a heartbeat and put up with his antics for the next 30 years.
  7. I donít believe anyone paid any attention...

    I donít believe anyone paid any attention whatsoever as to what kind of albums Supremes were putting out. I donít believe there was even a conscious effort to do a socially conscious album or singles...

    youíre absolutely right, if you take away the hits you have a failure. And itís a shame that they had such a tough act to follow with the original group because itís never been bettered: 10 number...

    The market wasn’t flooded with Supremes product at all. They only had one album on the chart. The fact that their catalog was still in print would not be a factor on a brand-new album release. If you...

    it was eight months after the single but I agree with you I think that had a big affect. A lot of people were over the song. Often in situations like that, one of the newer singles also sparks...

    Supremes greatest hits was still in the top 10. Aretha was selling albums like crazy, Valley of the dolls was big. The Tempts hit 13 with Mellow Mood. and Smokey was Top 20 with GH package. Sgt...

    The DR&TS era was 2 1/2 years and in that time they had three platinum singles, a smash that went to number two and another soft top 10. Most groups would kill for that.

    They certainly slipped a...

    I'm cautiously optimistic. Although a hit would be great, Iíll settle for actually liking it without rationalizing.

    it’s not out of character at all, I would’ve had hissy fits also, I’m not questioning whether or not she had a fit because I’m sure she had mini. I’m simply stating it could not have happened that...

    She didnít care for the material, so it might have been tough for her to feel them. Itís not her fault if she doesnít like the material, but the foundation of the group was laid with these songs and...

    I forgot about this medley. Racing through the hits is one thing, but Jean makes them nearly unrecognizable. This was part of what...

    Oh, now that makes sense. Her voice is so rough on Whatís My Line That Iím surprised she had to do two or three shows at night feeling like that.

    I agree. I think Marilyn is the most underrated singer of my generation. What a voice!

    Motown wasn’t even spending one second of effort to protect her voice and have it be in good condition for recording. She is so hoarse on some of those records I can’t listen to them. Like copa 67,...

    I think, with arrangements for single release, The Supremes would have had hits/ or bigger hits with:

    1. This Old Heart Of Mine
    2. Shake Me, Wake Me
    3. Something About You
    4. 7 Rooms of Gloom...

    1. Sup-par material.

    2. Haphazard release schedule.

    3. Zero TV promotion resulting in severely limited ability to sell to/connect with record buying public.

    4. Inability to promote in live...

    This is my second least fave DR&TS LP - Together gets the top prize. I donít care if itís cohesive or not, just good tracks is enough to pass muster. This mess, however, doesnít qualify. My list:

    I donít know why he made it up either, but clearly he did. The same reason lots of people make up things in their books because they want to have a story to tell and add some drama. You didnít expect...
