    Another excellent point. I didn't consider this. Nothing about Mary Wilson has ever suggested that she wanted to really concern herself with the business of the group. She did not have a take charge...

    Flo's rape, like anyone's sexual assault, probably affected the way she dealt with certain things. Mary wrote that distrust became an issue with Flo after her rape, so it should come as no surprise...

    Another excellent point. Motown sat in the power position throughout the whole process. Look how long it took them to actually settle the entire thing: Flo was permanently fired in July 1967. After...

    Excellent point. Can you imagine putting in all the work Florence did to get on top of the game, only to end up in a position where she had to start all over and not even be able to capitalize on her...

    That first lawyer was the one who stole her money. The second lawyer committed suicide. He did appear to be on the up and up, I think. Whatever he laid out in Flo's suit against Motown, I'm thinking...

    Which is sad because this is a network we've needed for a long time. If it could become a trusted news source (a rarity today, particularly on television), it would be a good way for many folks in...

    This is just too much. It's hard to imagine that there is really an audience out there for this. And how much are tickets to these kinds of events? I'd rather watch old performances on Youtube....

    I don't think anyone accused Motown of doing anything illegal. The court ruled in 1971 that Flo's release agreement was legally binding. (And of course her suit couldn't move forward unless she...

    Thanks Albator and Jaap!! The only version I knew was that electro disco version, which IMO is an almost horrible song. I have never heard the version(s) you two posted. Sounds like an entirely...

    Financially, Flo probably got one of the best settlements of anyone in her position. But the legalese of the separation agreement, with the stipulation of forbidding her to bill herself or promote...

    Pedro (and by extension, Mary) didn't do anything worth mentioning to advance the success of the Supremes. There is no argument from me about that. I'm speaking more from Mary's POV regarding Gordy....

    Watts and Elder? No obvious political bias? I won't hold my breath.

    Good job ladies. I would've preferred it with a soulful band backing them as opposed to that manufactured track, and they needed Ruth in there for the harmony. But it turned out nice anyway.

    I probably play "If It's In You To Do Wrong" more than any other Impressions tune, with or without Curtis.

    Cool info Sup. Is it also possible at some point for you to break down the group (and Diana)'s chart history R&B?

    Now that would be an interesting alternative history scenario. No doubt she would've been great, but I imagine the departure in sound from Diana to Scherrie might have been too much for the public to...

    Gordy was never going to make the Supremes a priority. All things Diana Ross was first and last and every spot in between. Who needs a manager that you can't trust to ensure you get firsts, as...

    The Jones Girls back her on this. One of my absolute favorite Diana tunes. Dumb move not releasing it as a single. Perhaps the dumbest move regarding potentially unreleased singles.
  21. "Ode To Billie Joe"- the Supremes, But Really Just Diana

    As pointed out in another thread, "Ode To Billie Joe" was the song that kept "Reflections" out of the top spot. Of course Diana did a solo version of her own on the Reflections album. Anyone a fan of...

    I think MSC was a return to three backing vocalists on the tracks, which rarely had been the case since the early days of the group. I'm one of the fans of the original trio who feels the harmonies...

    I understand her point. Berry washed his hands- whatever the reason- and there's little evidence that he cared about the group at all post Diana. What had he done to suggest to Mary that in his hands...
