    Ollie get with the times. You have to let the ways of the past die out. When you know better, you do better. We're supposed to be progressing, not regressing. Sure I miss the days when we could beat...

    Or her fans should understand that she's 75 years old doing a high energy dance competition and she is physically unable to do everything she did when she was a Supreme, going from one part of the...

    All interesting points Sup. Makes sense too. As I said in another thread, Motown also wasn't the same in the 70s as it was in the 60s. Motown 60s seemed to be a well run machine. Motown 70s was all...

    I thought her execution needed some work. She seemed to slug it a bit. However, I quickly reminded myself that the lady is 75 not 25, and for a 75 year old she appears to be holding her own.

    While...

    I think anyone who is a fan of Mary and/or Diana, or anyone remotely familiar with either lady and their history together, have let the question cross their mind, if only for a moment. I don't know...

    Cool performance. Horrible choice of song (I'm sure not Mary's choice). Cringy moment at the beginning with that Diana impression. Too early to tell how this will go down but I'm hoping Mary...

    Your post read to me like you were attacking those people in the forum who often make the "promotion" argument for Mary's solo lack of success at Motown. But you know what you wrote and what you...

    Marv "Drive" is one of my all time favorite songs ever. It brings back such great memories of being a small kid. Here's one that both the song itself and the video are attached to two vivid memories...

    "Right Way" and "Nothing But Heartaches" are great examples. Also "Play A Sad Song" and "Whisper You Love Me Boy".

    What is with you being so bothered by other folks opinions? It's almost funny. How do you quantify a term like "ridiculous" as it relates to someone holding the opinion that Mary could've been a...

    No, what's moronic is your inability to state your opinion regarding the reasons Mary's album failed without resorting to name calling and attacks. What you have demonstrated in your post is the mark...

    Don't be such a wuss.:p If you have strong feelings for WDFFIL, by all means post it. I'll let you know right off the back that my opinion is the album sucked and most of the tunes were beneath the...

    It's a nice song. As an album track it's a really good listen. As a Diana single at this point, I just don't think it would've done her career any favors. As Ollie pointed out, she had The Boss and...

    Too many. But I'll highlight a couple of favs.

    I'm already heavily recorded as being of the opinion that the Barbara years suffered because of Barbara herself. She did not possess the vocal...

    The Supremes were already legends and broken up by the time I was born, so I'm not sure what the first song of theirs that I heard. Surely it was one of the first four number ones, or "Hurry Love" or...

    Your Supremes First

    I'm interested to learn what everyone's first is when it comes to the Supremes. For instance:

    First time you heard the Supremes on the radio?

    First time you saw them on television?

    First...
  18. Willie Horton and the Supremes "Detroit Is Happening"

    I had never heard of this until Mark mentioned it in another thread. I intended to post it here along with asking who everyone thought was on background since Mark says there's some argument that...

    I first recall hearing "I Hear a Symphony" around 1990 or 1991 on an episode of Video Soul on BET with Donnie Simpson. A clip of the song was played along with some trivia about the Supremes....

    People drop out of school for a variety of reasons. I don't recall any reason given for Flo. A lot of artistic people throw schooling away when they set their minds on their goal within their art. By...

    Supremes "I Hear A Symphony"

    One of the most important singles in the Supremes catalog, wouldn't you agree? It has a more mature sound than their previous six hit singles, perhaps signaling that they were moving from girl group...

    I always thought that was Gordy's way of trying to downplay the Flo vs Diana (and ultimately himself) issue, by saying it wasn't Flo who was in competition with Ross, it was Mary. With maturity I now...

    Because the public has believed since the early 1980s that Effie White was based on Flo Ballard, and she was. I think Jennifer even said she read up on Flo to prepare for the part, so why wouldn't...

    They were a big part of Flo's downfall from the group, but Flo was the biggest part of her downfall in life. What ticks me off the most about Flo after she was fired was that she was consumed by her...
