    One more thing to add about Diana. She probably didn't trust many people either after a certain point in her life. Big stars always have to contend with the tons of people trying to get close, for...

    I reposted the part of the article because my gut feeling was that the reaction to what happened stemmed from Milven's short summary as opposed to reading the full description of what took place....

    I'm the opposite. I prefer Masser's Whitney work more than Diana's. I think I preferred Whitney in the big ballad style, as opposed to anything else. (Huge Whitney fan, btw.) I preferred my Diana in...

    Yeah, this sounds fairly new. I don't particularly care for it, but Mary sounds great.

    We feel your pain Brett.

    All excellent points. I'd add that Diana was also an extremely stressed out person throughout much of her life. The early clashes, during the Primettes and early Supremes years, were par for the...

    Topics around here go off topic all the time. It's just the flow of conversation. However, in a twist on what someone once replied to me when I brought up Mary in a Diana thread, "Back to Mary".

    I'm with Dan on this one. From the article:

    The afternoon rehearsal went well until the end of the song when there was a strange clumsy fade out which phased Mary.

    She told me that fade is no...

    Those four cuts, along with "Someday", are really the only A grade tunes on the album, IMO. In addition to them, I do also like "Hey Jude", "Shadows" and "Beginning". Back to the four you spotlight,...

    I don't believe "Reflections" was ever seriously considered the last single. Apparently there was brief discussion of the "what if" question regarding Diana as a solo in 1966. It's possible that it...

    "Ode to Billie Joe" is nice enough, but I really feel Mary was better suited to it. If Diana was to do it, I'd rather she have sung in her lower range to keep with the "dark" vibe of the song.

    I'm...

    I think Diana could've easily handled most of those tunes. There might have been need for some tweaking to accommodate the difference in voices. Definitely think Diana doing those Natalie tunes...

    A Smokey follow up does make sense. The only issue I can see is that around this time Smokey may have been more focused on his own recent solo career. Would be interesting to find out if Motown...

    Keep in mind the public's perception of the groups. I think the public probably already considered the Miracles "Smokey Robinson and...". Smokey was a well known songwriter and producer. He even had...

    I figured it was a combo of Reese's point and Bayou's point, as well as Ant's. I also wonder what role, if any, the album sound played. IMO, Reflections is the first of the "singles" albums where the...

    I definitely agree with this. However, one might make the argument that she makes things more tense by tiptoeing around the Florence subject. It leaves room for people to continue to speculate (and...

    I'm referring to the version of "It Makes No Difference Now" recorded in 1963, not the re-record from 1964 that made the CWP album. On the album version, Flo tears it up. But on the first version she...

    Possibly, but I think it was really just the age old tale of woman in love blinded by man's faults. That was a recurring theme in the music industry, at least back in that time. Diana was lucky in...

    I agree 100 percent Sup. I have a feeling that Jimmy may have been attracted to working with the Supremes because of his love for Jean's voice. Fans have commented for years that the JW album feels...

    I think a great example of Flo's toned down lead style is the first version of "It Makes No Difference Now". She sounds absolutely beautiful. Yes, it would've been interesting to hear the producers...

    I think many of Mary Wells' songs fit Mary Wilson. They were similar vocalists, except Wells had the ability to sing a bit higher than Wilson, and also get grittier than Wilson.

    Yeah, that was a rush job. Now the single was released in June, so Frank still had time to perfect the song for single release, even if the album version would be different.

    Which brings me back to the point I was making in my post, that my hope is Diana will decide on a new way of being where the Supremes are concerned. She can't be Mary Wilson. There was only one, and...

    I get it. That's how I feel about some songs. Great songs, like "Everybody", starts out with a great shell. In this case, you have the lyrics and the basic melody, all very nice. You take the...
