    https://youtu.be/BMT2ftCtQr0

    when Smokey did Floy Joy, I was hoping other producers like Norman or Deke would take The Supremes on. After Gladys stopped recording for Motown, I’m surprised that Norman didn’t give JLM a shot - he...

    thanks - they also had a color ad on the cover of billboard for the album... But I just for the life of me cannot remember what that sticker looks like it’s driving me crazy. Of course I was halfway...

    george - those are exactly how I recall them - however, I can’t recall the stickers on new ways or mag 7 - I know there was some, but can’t visualize them.

    I agree that I don’t think the album Was great, but it was a giant step better than the studio albums of 68 and 69. (As was as right on.) I disagree that the other albums were a lot of filler because...

    If they can’t afford Mary and Cindy, they certainly could not afford Diane! LOL

    It was a parody....a joke. Do you know what a joke is? Miss Ross is and was fully aware of her public persona and I’m certain her ability to be lampooned was more of a complement to being that...

    I cross swords with everyone: I do not care for the Love Child album. From its tepid stereo mix to her hoarse vocals on too many tracks, I have to say, “meh.” I prefer Cream, Reflevtions and maybe...

    when the Jean albums began to tank in less than a year and concert venues went from arenas to theaters in 6 months, Miss Ross’ self esteem must have felt pretty damn good then by your standards. In...

    i don’t know if you ever saw DMF OR DMC live, but you are correct when you say they were two different acts. DMF: each was a treat. They were different live because that was their medium where they...

    HA! I just had my first, true LOL today - thank you for that.

    In Mary’s books, she doesn’t mention much about having friends prior to the group. It’s very possible that diana ross was her very...

    I have no reason to think it’s not true, but I know that if it was in a lower key, Diana would’ve had trouble with the verse if I’m losing you because it’s already low for her… Not low necessarily I...

    I canThink of no redeeming qualities of pops we love you. It wouldn’t make my top 500 Diana Ross songs even if she hadn’t SunG 500 songs. Muscles? To each, their own, but I wouldn’t list half if them.
