    I always said Flo would've been a great fit for "Mr. Big Stuff". What a pity that after Flo was dropped from ABC she chose to focus on fighting Motown (which she should have fought) and didn't put...

    Particularly if they gave her the uptempo, big band type of stuff. While I was wowed by "People" when it was released on the box set back in 2000, as the years pass I'm less and less impressed with...

    Yes, "O Holy Night" was another fine vocal moment for Florence. I keep both of her versions of it in constant rotation when the Christmas season starts up.

    I could hear Flo doing that stuff, especially Etta's stuff. When Etta wrote in her book that Flo told her that Etta had been an inspiration, I wasn't surprised. I could always hear a similarity in...

    I'll go with 82 Ollie since in my mind the duet would occur after Marvin has left Motown and Ross has released her RCA debut. I think a reworked version of "Muscles" would've been perfect. Maybe...

    Never underestimate the power of a pissed off woman. She doesn't have to use her fist to get her point across. Besides, how much of a bitch move would it be for Marvin to punch Diana but not punch...

    Perhaps, but that can't be used as evidence of those RCA songs being deemed of less quality than her Motown songs. Those songs have been in her act since leaving RCA. When's the last time she did...

    LOL Come on now. You gotta like me even when you think I make no sense.

    Well first you have to consider that I am not a fan of the Chic sound for anyone, although I concede that commercially it...

    IMO "Mirror, Mirror", "Swept Away", and "Missing You" was better than "Reach Out I'll Be There", "My Mistake", "Last Time I Saw Him", "Theme From Mahogany" (a song I LOATH), "Your Love Is So Good For...

    I don't recall seeing the Billie Holiday spot. I'll have to look for it and return with my commentary.

    The last single Barbara cut with the group was "Your Heart Belongs to Me" and it appears this was the last session for her. I'm unaware of any studio recordings Barbara did in 1962. The next time the...

    That's my fav version too Reese. Here's hoping that in the event the Sam Cooke album gets an expanded, maybe there's a version of the song without a fade and we get to hear the full Flo letting loose...

    I know what you mean!:D Too bad Gordy didn't have the Supremes recording any gospel tunes around this time where they were in the studio doing a little bit of everything. Florence would've ripped...

    A Worthy Flo Thread

    The 60s Supremes recorded a ton of covers, especially when you factor in all the MOR stuff. From what I can tell, the MOR stuff is so great because it lends itself to different interpretations, so...

    That's an odd bit of trivia. I wonder what their problem was with one another? Usually the Supremes you hear the most about as how well they got on with others is Cindy, Scherrie and Flo (Flo's...

    I believe Gordy got satisfaction out of folks like Mary Wells, Flo Ballard, even Mary Wilson, failing to find success outside of Motown. I don't believe he was that petty when it came to Diana...

    Artistically, a duet album between them after they had both left Motown would've been HUGE if all of the right pieces came together to make it an artistic and then commercial success.

    The singer/songwriting thing was popular at the time for actual singer/songwriters. That was not the Supremes, so I fail to see how that factors into the pros for this direction. It was just a poor...

    I agree (except for "Summertime"). I'll have to think about album cuts that are as or near as brilliant as her Motown stuff, but I'm not sure I'll be able to come up with anything.

    I think "Mirror, Mirror" was as good as the Chic stuff, and it resonated with the public because it was hip and a good fit. Of course I cannot explain how "Fools" the single became a hit, other than...
