    ^i liked their look in terms of the outfits and wigs. but the stage choreography was all over the place. there's a point where they do this sort of weird dancing in a circle move and multiple times...

    some of these i would NOT list as best dancing moments. I felt the Tom Jones version of Stoned Love was idiotic. the choreography was odd and didn't really work with the song. and Time to Break...

    a couple different ways to identify "favorite" album

    Supremes Sing R&H - probably the best from a vocal and production standpoint. all three girls really shine and its just proof positive that...

    i think it might have led to some hot tracks. She was definitely trying to tap more into pop music vs R&B during the 80s. the combo of Bowie and Rodgers might have helped her straddle that line. ...

    one of the problems is that the 70s Sups recorded so much excellent material is so short of a time. in Jan 70, they finished Ladder. Stoned was prepared and being recorded in April, as was Time to...

    i like Bill a lot but agree it would be a wrong choice for a single. it's a great song but let's call a spade a spade - it's a 5th Dimension knock-off. now admittedly it's a better knock off than...

    i think Bowie 80s might have worked. his Let's Dance work was co-produced with Niles Rogers of Chic. and was released right around the time Diana released Ross 83. I like the Steely Dan tracks on...

    M and C were still involved with quite a bit of the background work in 68. by no means all. and many songs had them and the As. so that's why i think, had they been around, both M and C (plus the...

    well i think we all agree that Ladder was the absolute super star song for the new Sups. perfect debut single. with just a bit more Motown promotion it would have gone top 5 or possibly #1.

    i don't hear this one. just like i don't hear her working well with Rick James. their approach to music wasn't in her sound or making.

    Chic worked because they still had an elegance to their...

    definitely not a surprise. She was a supreme for 9 years or so. and a solo artist for 49. she's sold at least as many solo records as she did as a group member. Also the supremes started to fade...

    i think in general few people are that familiar with artist that are more than a generation separated from their own. people pay attention to what is direction in front of them. sure some people...

    very good point - i was assuming from your statement that she then opted out of singing on it. but you're right, maybe she wasn't asked and after the fact didn't care since it was a dumb song

    Fish is a great song. one of my all time motown favs. the track is hot. there's so much more going on with this song than Where. the bongos, piano, brass, etc. the great vocals, fun tune.

    i don't know how one would but you need to also figure out some way of "adjusting for inflation" when comparing the Sup sales to current artists. The average 15 year old had a much different...

    maybe they're just mixed way into the background. just to give fullness to the vocals. similar to how they doubled the girls on songs from CWP

    i think aside from Diana, Gladys Horton probably would have sounded best on the early Sup hits. But she also was a bit too "street-wise" IMO to pull of the lyric of BL. Diana really had the ingenue...

    i'd be curious to learn just how much the groups complained back in the 60s about this. There's a story in Randy's book about Flo complaining about the A's being added to an early version of The...

    IF (and i really emphasize the word "if") there would ever be a motown/supremes movie, it would probably be an adaptation of the current stage show. maybe they'd alter it to not be a musical...

    I like Honey Bee too but i think that by the time you got to mid/late 68, it was just a bit too out of date. wasn't contemporary. had they done the song in 66 or 67, it could have been a good one. ...

    i don't feel that it's that much of a professional breech. the song is a piece of crap, lyrically, IMO. and was being done simply to cash in on LC. it's not like D, M and C had sat down as a group...
