  1. Motown refusing to open their books to RIAA in...

    Motown refusing to open their books to RIAA in the 60s was just Gordy's way of screwing over the artists out of money, in my honest opinion. Lie about how well a record sold by saying 1 million...

    I agree. I never cared for any live rendition of "Love Child." Mary and Cindy just couldn't seem to get the hang of the pace of the song especially on "Wait, why you wait, now hold on." It always...

    I donít think there was a rivalry or any animosity. As Mary said when Jimmy Webb used the Blossoms on their recordings, she took it personally against the Supremes and not against the Blossoms. I...

    There is definitely the Andantes sound on the word "flowers." In the extended part, you can hear Mary's laugh when Brian is goofing around, but on the actual recording it's definitely more than two...

    I love backing track and the background vocals (Mary & Cindy with the Andantes). Itís Dianaís vocal thatís disappointing. Itís a lackluster performance and with the track being produced by Norman...

    If I could tweak the Where Did Our Love Go LP, I would have lost some of the earlier, slower tracks and replaced them with more upbeat tracks that matched side one.

    Side One

    I think this is one of those recordings where the Andantes were singing with Mary & Flo. It's clear there are more than two women singing background.

    I don't have a problem so much with Motown using the Andantes on records. I personally love the Andantes and their sound. They had incredible harmonies and they don't get the recognition in the...

    I know Iím in the minority on this, but to me, ďForever Came TodayĒ was the finest song HDH ever did for the Supremes. It took them to another level of maturity and complexity they hadnít done...

    I believe HDH left Motown before completing the track. Their last session was "I'm In A Different World" where they supervised the addition of the background vocals. After that, they were gone....

    Another major distance in charting was “Some Things You Never Get Used To.” It stalled at #43 on the Billboard R&B charts yet it made it to #16 on Record World’s R&B charts. That’s a major gap and...

    I donít think the melody is dark. The chord structure is just very complex and different. Personally, itís one of my favorite Supremes songs. I think it and ďIím In A Different WorldĒ are brilliant...

    Here's a concept album for the planned Some Things You Never Get Used To LP. The story of a girl who wishes for love, finds it, experiences its joy and difficulties, loses love and regrets it.

    I had no clue Stevie was playing drums on this track. They do sound a bit clunky at times and do drag the song a bit.

    I always liked this track by them until I heard Marvin's version and then the...

    With the exception of ďIn And Out Of Love,Ē side one has a great psychedelic vibe that flows well. If Motown kept the feeling going on side two, I think Reflections could have been a very strong...

    The photos I have from June 29th they are wearing the pink chiffon gowns. I have seen photos of the tuxedos with Diana, Mary, and Cindy wearing them in August 1967. They arenít the same as the ones...

    We know they did their final photo session in the Las Vegas desert on June 28, 1967. None of these photos were seen until the 80s and there are still more that haven't been published yet. They opened...

    What you're missing is that he thinks eight Supremes are what matters, not nine. He's discounting her because she didn't contribute to a hit record. My argument is Lynda didn't contribute to a hit...

    He mentions Barbara as a Supreme, but reiterates several times that it was eight women who contributed to the group’s success. Just because Barbara wasn’t on a hit record doesn’t mean she should be...

    Randy is a great guy and his revised Diana Ross biography from 2007 really is the definitive biography on her. Heís been involved with all the expanded editions and he is one of the authority voices...

    Wow, they totally should have done "Sing For Your Supper." That's the problem with the Rodgers & Hart songbook, you have so many songs to pick from. Now I wish I had a time machine and slipped the...

    Sing Ballads & Blues - Poor idea to do a speciality album so soon in their career without establishing the girls as hitmakers and Motown was right to shelve it. I know several of the tracks would...

    I donít believe those capes went with the red/maroon gowns from the Touch photo sessions. The colors clashed. They may have possibly gone with the orange beaded jacket and pants, but I canít say...

    Mary has most of the gowns from 1968 to 1977. Aside from the 6 sets completely destroyed in the Mexico fire, there are a few 70s sets she doesn't have. I don't believe she has the floral ones nor the...
