    some of the best harmony work is on CW&P, Liverpool and Sam Cooke... I always wished both Clarence Paul and Norman Whitfield would have worked with Jean Terrell.

    I like some of Lynda's work as a solo artist much better than anything with her fronting the group. Like Susaye her voice is a bit too piercing and sharp (like Florence) for me. I am not a big fan...

    I keep hoping Jean will resurface...even though I am a huge Scherrie fan, when Jean left the FLO's it was over for me. I think the most recent performance I've seen is her guest spot on Preston...
