    they started sharing lines in songs with Ladder and Bridge Over Troubled. then in their stage act too - like Love The One You're With. during the SMC era, there was a bit more of this. but in...
  2. MSC - if the trio had continued long term, what could they have done?

    it does seem that MSC had the potential to remain a group for a long period, had they had proper management. not saying they would have had or even needed to have #1 records all the time. they...
  3. i realize it isn't really a fair comparison to...

    i realize it isn't really a fair comparison to compare Susaye and Cindy. Cindy is a very talented singer and entertainer but is more of a backing singer. this isn't to slight her any - given that...
  4. it's hard to compare the lineups. MSC had...

    it's hard to compare the lineups. MSC had excellent harmonies on Sup 75, even if the song content was sometimes hit or miss. but the MSS grouping was truly amazing on record. IMO even stronger. ...
  5. i agree the most of the tracks on LC are good...

    i agree the most of the tracks on LC are good tracks. Sunny Boy is idiotic with those stupid lyrics of idaho, corduroy and mohair lol. but all in all it's a good album. I think the sequencing is...
  6. here's how i've interpreted things in 73. and...

    here's how i've interpreted things in 73. and this is most definitely speculation. i'm pulling this together as my own opinion based on mary's books, randy's books, comments on here by lots of...

    it seems the tracks were recorded and prepared as the group was entering its "farewell" period. maybe not literally with the Jan 14 1970 date. but the overall. Diana is definitely not on them at...

    exactly. would it have helped reinvigorate the group in the late 60s, establish a bit more of a serious and substantial artistic reputation.

    clearly motown understood the opportunity that a...

    often with the books there just is info that is missing. perhaps it has been lost through the years with motown's move out west. maybe it was never properly completed to begin with so we don't have...

    well and Mary's supposed criticism of Syreeta is exactly what Mary ended up doing herself after L and J left. she and pedro were attempting to launch mary from the supremes structure and as such...
  11. i think this is a very accurate statement. My...

    i think this is a very accurate statement. My interpretation of things is that when J and L left, mary wanted to be lead and use the group to eventually go solo. motown said no to her as lead but...
  12. great info Bayou. what a great way to position...

    great info Bayou. what a great way to position Diana and her feelings on the group. she had worked herself nearly to death to establish the group and help it's success while a member. and after...

    what was that unreleased MOR album diana did at RCA? was it Johnny Mercer? I always guessed that was her response to the Streisand album

    as for this one, i'm not sure but what an interesting...

    i just think Luther was capable of coming up with MUCH better material. especially given his devotion to Miss Ross. i think he could have done some great things. and yeah, they might have had an...

    well i don't know if Jim was being a Diana troll - lol. seems like the forum has been really quite calm and sedate for a long while now. partially this is because i think the number of active...

    but none of the supremes were ever really involved in the development of their recordings. sure by the late 70s, Diana was. and i'm not saying that producers didn't talk with them, get to know them...

    i think Diana sounds rather weak on Tell Me Again. her performance isn't anywhere near something like It's My Turn. and you also had Whitney coming out with her power ballads around this time. ...
  18. also we need to remember that after she left the...

    also we need to remember that after she left the Sups, diana wasn't just lounging around being catered to, or having every success just handed to her. she worked her tail off at preparing her new...
  19. from what i've pieced together, except maybe in...

    from what i've pieced together, except maybe in their very earliest days, the group was never a "shared lead." Yes Flo and occasionally mary took a lead. But pretty much from Day 1, Diana was doing...

    i'm not sure about the backing track. i hadn't heard it was lost or anything and i hadn't heard about it first being done in Detroit. I believe the opposite was true with The Happening. the first...

    [QUOTE=TheMotownManiac;702444]

    Oh come on now. It’s not perfection but definitely better than Workin Overtime. And I would say been than Eaten Alive

    those are two different queens. Queen Elizabeth II was not in attendance at the 68 Royal Command Performance with DRATS. it was the Queen Mother along with Princess Anne, Prince Charles, Princess...

    I don't dislike Dirty Looks. it's a bit more AC to my ear than pop. Shine i do agree would have been better single. I also like Stranger In Paradise

    Tell Me Again needed some rework, in...

    haha - i'm not commenting on the QUALITY of the recordings. actually i like much of the album. i find it enjoyable. even some of the tracks that tend to be viewed less favorably by fans like...

    i don't know how or whether she was coordinating her career plans with her family life. she had married Arne in 85 and in 87 their first son was born. her RCA contact was also expiring. I wonder...
