    Susaye was an excellent vocalist. I believe that Cindy as well as Scherrie and Susaye had conflicts with Pedro's "management". As for a quartet we did have MSSC on record for 2 songs on High Energy...

    Mary, Cindy and Scherrie were arguably the most visually and vocally appealing of the 70's groupings. At the time, Cindy did seem to not be into it as much as I remember seeing a You Tube video of...

    No, quite the opposite of being a Diana Troll. I really didn't become a fan until 1970 and I became a fan of both the Supremes and Diana Ross at the time. It was just a natural curiosity. I know so...

    I really, really like this song. It has great possibility to catch on. Great job by Miss Ross! WTG!
  5. Relationship between the original members and the replacements with Diana Ross

    I have read many times on this site that Cindy has "stated" to some that Mary was always trying to get her to side with her against Diana. I think there is more to it, though. I imagine that Diana,...

    From what I understand and have read was that Berry initially thought of Syreeta Wright but saw Jean and thought she was the better choice. At the DRATS Farewell something must have happened between...

    As I stated before, each member has a compelling story in the history of the Supremes. If you go the original members each has their own story that the public may find fascinating-Florence with her...

    I think that was a very beautiful and heartfelt tribute by former Supremes Scherrie Payne and Susaye Greene to the late Supreme Mary Wilson. Very touching and genuine.

    There isn't a member of the group that wouldn't be interesting. Diana had the entire focus on working hard to become the focal point and lead singer while dating Berry and dealing with the pressures...

    I do think that Flo, Cindy and Lynda resembled each other while they were in the Supremes. I think Cindy did resemble Flo but this was also when they upped the glamour in DRATS and Cindy and Mary...

    I agree I think that Everybody's Got The Right To Love shouldn't have been the second single much like Reach Out shouldn't have been Ross' first. Both were slow songs with a message that were not...

    Very interesting graph. It seems that the DRATS era had some hit and miss chart action. Except for Ain't No Mountain it seems that the Supremes had similar chart action to Ross. Once 1973 rolled...

    I always thought that the cover of EIE looked cheap compared to Surrender and DR70. The same could be said that Right On was a great cover for the Supremes and NW with it's pink type, the hodgepodge...

    I think the line is "come with me". I always assumed it was Cindy singing that verse. I could be wrong on that, but it doesn't sound like Jean or Mary unless they were also using the Andantes on that...

    Motown really did fixate on singles, rather than albums and it took some time before they made their albums more than just singles with the rest being "filler". As a preteen in 1970-1, there were a...

    This album was Mary's solo debut. For years she was told by Gordy that she "couldn't sing" and was currently in a physically and verbally abusive marriage. I am surprised she had any confidence left...

    I am not sure that Gordy ever wanted to get involved in social statement music. As for Reach Out and Touch, Miss Ross has stated that Gordy didn't want to release it because it was slow, it was a...

    I think Miss Ross looks absolutely beautiful. I agree with her in continuing to mask because it is not such a big price to stay alive and healthy and she is doing it in Supreme style. The tabloid...

    It is only natural to speculate about a beloved celebrity, especially since there is no information about her illness. I think speculation comes out of love and not a need to gossip. I know that Mary...

    As a pre-teen, my friend and my sister's boyfriend played music by "his girls"-it was the Supremes. The first record I ever bought was Up The Ladder To The Roof and I bought Right On and New Ways But...

    I haven't posted too much about it. I listen to it and it is striking to hear such beautiful and clear tracks with Mary singing so beautifully. I am sure we all have our favorites. I wasn't too sure...

    Carlo, Thanks for sharing that lovely photograph of Mary Wilson with the future Oscar Winner who played her in Motown the Musical, Ariana Debose. Iconic.

    Nice apology near her 78th Birthday. At least, they knew Miss Ross may have had a recent CD release and that stuck in their minds when they just didn't know the answer and they had enough class to...
